No manufacturer listed as of yet for Secret Weapon 8 in 2018
It will replace the Log Flume at the Staffordshire theme park and at its height would be 16 metres above the ground level. The Mexican Cantina would also be demolished to make way for the attraction. It would also feature a shop, games unit and a new food kiosk. Park bosses are simply referring to the rollercoaster as Secret Weapon 8 but a permanent name has yet to be confirmed.
Documents submitted to Staffordshire Moorlands Council state that the timber ride will have a maximum height of around 33 feet above the existing ground, indicating a family target audience. It has been scheduled to open in 2018.
Planning documents state: “To enhance the offer at the resort, it is proposed to remove the now dated log flume attraction and install a new rollercoaster to the west of the Congo River Rapids ride. The proposed new coaster will be contained outside of the woodland area (located to the south of the application site) on a previously developed area.
