Hello and welcome to themed bar . worldwide in this video i'm going to be . talking about the various new rides and . attractions opening at different theme . parks throughout the uk in 2018 now i'm . going to start off by talking about some . of the rides that are more well known . but although i'm moving on to some . different things that you might not know . we're opening in the uk for 2018 let's . start off then by talking about wickham . and the new wooden roller coaster . opening at alton towers this year so . it's a great coasters international. wooden roller coaster . it's the uk's first wooden roller . coaster to be built in over 20 years . incredible it's also been branded as the . world's first roller coaster fusing wood . and fire and now when this was announced . a few weeks ago i lots into a bit more . and thought hang on a minute the world's . first wooden roller coaster at fusing. wooden fire fusing being the word there . it doesn't actually say it's the world's . first roller coaster to use wood and . fire together because we all know that's . not the case there's quite a few rides . out there to name just a couple you've . got whoa done at europa park apocalypse . the ride at six flags magic mountain. they're both wooden roller coasters that. have combined fire effects with the ride . before so gonna be very interesting to . see what alton towers have got planned . with this hopefully we're gonna see some . really impressive effects that's saying . that the rides gonna use cutting cutting . edge special effects mixed in with a . classic wooden roller coaster so looking . forward to seeing how this is gonna make . it a world first compared to the other . wooden roller coasters that have done. that type of effect before and so the . trains gonna pass through a six storey . high burning wickerman on three . different occasions how exciting is that . i mean you've got this massive structure . which we've seen me in built last year . and the coaster passes through it three . times and yeah this massive burning . structure so i'm assuming we're not just . gonna be seeing some fire blasts coming . from this with it saying it's a the . world's first a fuse wood and fire i'm . expecting big scale effects on this . hopefully we're gonna see some sort of . maybe mist screen or something to make . you feel like you're going through it . real fire at the side who knows what. we're gonna see with this one it's . certainly very exciting in terms of when . the rides i mean there's a lot of rumors . and stuff going around at the moment i . would hazard a guess and say it's going . to be ready for the start of season but . at the moment will . saints opening in spring 2018 if all . goes to plan hopefully that will be . ready for the opening day at the park . moving on then to the another big ride . what's opening the uk this year two . massive things open in this country for . 2018 which is great to see we've got . icahn at blackpool pleasure beach . it's a mack ride double launch roller . coaster and it's also the first of its . kind in the uk obviously we've got . launch coasters in this country so just . retail alton towers velocity flamingo . land so there is launch coasters out . there but this will be the first to use . that alice and technology to actually . propel the train forwards and it's not . just going to do it once it will do it a . second time as well now icons really . progressing in terms of the construction . of blackpool pleasure beach you might . have seen some of our updates over the . past few weeks here on the channel it . really is getting exciting and the . airtime hills now in place and just . seeing this ride go up is incredible it . really is obviously we know all the . facts for quite a while for icon now but . we'll go over them again just for those . of you that haven't seen them and so . you've got 15 different interactions . happening with icon with five different . rides there's also going to be two . tunnels including the rides layouts as . well so when they say interactions . that's basically where the ride will. pass on the knee over or next to an . existing ride inside the pleasure beach . with how the compacted this ride into . the park you can see that it's going to . wrap very closely with the big one and . the big dipper and the grand prix . steeplechase so everything in that sort. of area so it's gonna be really nice to . see this running round against all the . other right inside the park it's got an . 80 8 foot tall everman loop that's . already in place we've seen that go up . just over a month ago now and wow how . impressive was that log when we saw like . going up in december i thought wow yeah . it's the highest point on the ride and i . can't wait to see it finished and since . then we've seen the airtime they'll go . into place and we're never going to see . some big drops on there as well drops of . just under 88 feet as well which is . exciting to see so yeah we've got an . immelmann loop an incline loop and an . inline twist to look forward to on this . ride as well so technically it's got two . inversions and an incline loop subject . to if you clasp an incline loop is an . inversion or not because technically the. train doesn't actually go upside down if . you're unsure why incline loop is that . moves up and sort of banks round to the . left alright depending on the way they . incline loops going that makes his way . down into the next element so yeah i'll . leave that one with you guys up to the . side definitely a very intense elements . of the ride even if it's not technically . classed as an inversion icon also reach . speeds of up to 50 miles per hour and so . it's not ridiculously fast please matt . mega coasters aren't all about that i . mean i've done quite a few of them now . out there and most recently for example . in sand a bluefire clone alice in dubai . i went on that it literally blew fire . from europa park and yeah we went on . that and the lord you know expecting a . real fast launch yes it picked up speeds . with it being higher sands but it's . really important to remember with these . mega coasters the more about the freedom . and then how comfortable the ride is . you're not gonna have and i could be a . namco's away you've got your restraints . all the way down holding you in you're . over the shoulder restraints you're . gonna have this bar what does rests just . here around your waist making it a . really comfortable ride experience . especially when you're going through . some of the inversions can't wait to . experience that emel man on the back row . with those train so yeah very exciting . no opening dates announced yet for i got . a blackpool pleasure beach but all we . know is it's gonna be in spring 2018 the . third park i'm gonna talk about in this . video is paulson's park now they've gone . through quite a lot of expansion over . recent years it all kicked off for them . when they built peppa pig world and . since then the park just kept getting . bigger and expanded in more . state-of-the-art rides especially for. the family market we have the lost . kingdom with two brand-new 4-koma . rollercoasters inside a new themed area . there were some existing rides brought . in to that and also some new flat rides . as well so that was big for them and now . 2018 we've got two things opening the . first i'll talk about is little africa . this is the parks little corner of . africa what they're gonna build and it's . gonna be lots of animals birds and like . a savannah style feel to it which looks . really nice we saw it being constructed . when we visited in the summer actually . there's gonna be meerkats porcupines . you've got lizards mongoose all sorts of . different animals and there's also going . to be a nocturnal section so all the . animals that come out at night and also . a flying avery as well there's so much . to see inside little africa and it's. going to be open for february half soon . so just. few weeks to go until that's open at . portland's park coming a little bit . later in the year it's the peppa pig . expansion two brand new rides open . inside peppa pig world and the largest. expansion to that section of the park . since it was opened so you've got two . new rides the first one being the. queen's flying coach ride this is a . royal tour from the queen's castle above . peppa pig world so it's basically a . monorail style rival take you round over . the area allowing you to look down and . see the other rides below so that looks . really cool and also we've got the . grumpy rabbits. sailing club struggling for that some of . these grampy rabbit sailing club there . is a magical boat ride around peppa pig . world and also pirates islands and so . yeah that's gonna be really exciting . that's like a little boat ride and you . got the monorail really round above it. it's exciting times for peppa pig world . palms park i'm sure lots of you gonna go . there and see it . we've actually got a confirmed only date . for that it will be the 16th of may 2018 . over the peppa pig expansion at . portland's park make sure you go down . there and see it . tiger rock is a new experience coming to . chessington world of adventures in 2018 . this is basically a wreath eeeem of the . former dragon falls log flume and that . attraction originally opened at the park . in 1987 since then it got a few little . changes and things but this is a full . reading of the ride to include some new . experiences as well so to start then the . removed peaking heights which was the . ferris wheel located in the area of . mystic east and you'd walk around there . the ferris wheel was at the side and . yeah it was an okay attraction but it . had quite a small throughput so i can . see why they've taken them out and . especially certainly can put in some . brand new tiger exhibits as well so . you're gonna walk around this area . brand new tiger is a bits and then . you've got tiger rock which is the re . theme to the log flume so you can have. some new themed all around it lots of . interaction with the actual animals as. well and there's gonna be a large tiger . head which is which the drops gonna go . through basically any of you might . remember a few years ago they actually . took the theming down around the drop of . dragons falls but they're don't think . they really knew what they were going to . be doing with it going forward and over . the last few years they've obviously . come up with these plans for tiger rock . so yeah it was like. be nice it's not really a new ride but . it's a new experience so to speak and be . able to go to chessington from spring . 2018 and see tiger rock look forward to . seeing what it comes out like to . legoland windsor there now to talk about . their mini land expansion . i love mini land i've just come back . from dubai and actually went to legoland . dubai and that was really good and . seemed mini land definitely the best . milland i've seen out at the legoland . parks have done and it's also got the . world's tallest like a modular burj . khalifa and that was great to see and . check out the blog on the channel if . you've not yet seen it but yeah mini . lion what our favorites and a twins i'm . looking forward to seeing this expansion . you've got two brand new mini lands to . explore one of them is gonna be a usa . theme so hopefully we're gonna see some . famous buildings from the state's being . built and all sorts of things obviously . go to me london windsor and it's so nice . to see all the london structures and . it's good as a good mix of things there. as well lots of older style things and . then you've got a lot of the newer . things there as well so it's good to go . around that many lines i do really enjoy . it and just wish i had a cover over like . in dubai and i obviously do because of . the heat there but can you imagine here . in the uk especially when it's raining . most of the time outside it'd be nice to. have a cover over it but yeah we've got . us a theme coming in and also another. one which is gonna offer a kiss the . chance while and adults as well bigger . looks like because the lines are gonna . seem inland to see landmarks across . india russia australia and china for the . first time so lots of big new buildings . coming in in what's probably the large . text functions a mini land in a long . time so i'm looking forward to getting . to legoland as soon as that's done doing . a video on the channel and of course and . checking it out all these things i'm . talking about in this video we are gonna . be visiting on the channel this year so . make sure you check out our vlogs and . reviews as we go and see them mini lino . expansion at windsor will be opening in . spring 2018 so stay tuned for that one . the final thing i'm going to talk about . then is ice age a land of the lizard . living dinosaurs at the west midland . safari park. nearly got that wrong there so yes . western safari park really nice place . and you might just think with the name . it's just a safari park so much more . than that you've got a leisure park next . to it and then over the past few years . they've been gradually trying to theme . them ride . tractions in to fit with the whole theme . of it live done a really good job they . had to kong a few years ago example of . disco they've got like a little rapids . right there's a log flume there and a . couple of juni coasters so yeah is while . we're visiting and the land of living . dinosaurs is incredible really big . animatronics lots of stuff to walk . around it's really good especially . you've got little ones they're expanding . that with an ice age area this year so . there's gonna be themed caves to walk . through static and animatronic figures . of dinosaurs. you've got replicas of extinct animals . and a massive volcano structure what you . can walk through on various paths as . well very exciting and so i can't wait . to go and see and this year we've got no . confirmed out
