What is a Hypercoaster?
Hypercoasters are full-circuit roller coasters built for height, speed and airtime with a height or drop measuring greater than 200 feet.
The video below featuring Flash at Lewa Adventure in China gives a good indication of how Hyperia at Thorpe Park Resort will look and ride once completed.
The rides name has a double meaning with the ride theming based on a fearless goddess named ‘Hyperia’ whose story is yet to be told, plus it is also a hypercoaster”. The ride’s trains will feature ten two-seater rows, with Mack’s modern semi-lap bar style restraint design, similar to those on the Icon ride at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
Why is it called Hyperia?
Hyperia is the name of Thorpe Park Resort’s Fearless Goddess, who’s story we they yet to tell.
Was it meant to be called Icarus?
Hyperia may have been inspired by the legend of ‘Icarus’, but she was wise and learnt from his mistakes. Hyperia’s wings were not crafted of feathers and wax, they were forged of steel.
What date does Hyperia open?
Hyperia – the UK’s tallest and fastest rollercoater is set to open in 2024, Thorpe Park Resort haven’t confirmed an exact opening date (just yet).
A World’s First Inversion
Hyperia will offer high speed thrills and plenty of airtime whilst also boasting three inversions including a dive loop, an Immelmann (where the coaster climbs a hill, performs a half-loop, and then twists 180 degrees to level out in the opposite direction) and a unique one-of-a-kind inversion that sends riders upside down as they come out of an outerbanked turn.
This inversion is said to be special in that it’s never been done on a rollercoaster before and is so new that it doesn’t even have an official name yet.
Fast, inclined Chain Lifthill
Hyperia features a fast, inclined Chain Lifthill that offers riders a steady, yet fast climb to the top. This will add to the drama of the ride with tension building as you head towards the summit 236 foot in the air. From this vantage point, you will get a birds eye view of all of the parks other roller coasters below.
As Hyperia heads towards the lake it will feature a thrilling splashdown effect.
