Hyperia – Thorpe Park (Project Exodus)

Ride: Hyperia
Manufacturer: MACK Rides
Ride Status: COMING SOON
Opening Date: 24th May 2024

Codenamed Project Exodus during construction, Hyperia is placed in what was Old Town, which resulted in the removal of Loggers Leap along with the Canada Creek Railway. As part of the changes, Old Town is now known as Fearless Valley!

The work saw the removal of three children’s rides from Old Town, one of which can be found at Thorpe Park after a repaint and is now called High Striker. One was also moved to Chessington while the remaining has been scrapped.

On the 9th of February 2023, Thorpe Park (finally) confirmed that the new rollercoaster will be built by Mack!

Throughout the Winter 22/23 Season, plenty of work was taking place in ‘Old Town’ with the removal of the Loggers Leap station, the Canada Creek Railway Station and not only that, at the start of February they had also started work to remove Loggers Leap!

For the main 2023 season, work was taking place to prepare the ground along with the installation of the ground pins for the track supports to be installed.

On the 6th of October 2023, Thorpe Park announced that their new ride would be called Hyperia! In their announcement video, they also played music from the ride’s soundtrack! The name announcement comes as parts of the ride were moved to the construction site, ready for vertical construction!

In the 9th October 2023, Project Exodus started to go vertical, and a few days later the first parts of the track were then laid!

The biggest excitement came on the 18th April, when Hyperia was tested for the very first time. Since then, much more testing has been taking place and final work on the area to be ready for opening day!
