One of the world’s most awesome rotary thrill rides and the only one installed in Europe opened on 28th March 2005 at Thorpe Park.
First riders were taken soaring 105 feet towards the sky. As their faces confronted the clouds they were flipped over to be slam-dunked towards the earth in an intense 30mph “free fall” only to swoop skywards again just before hitting the ground and giving the ultimate pulled out of your seat experience!
An impressive looking ride, gived both a positive and negative g-force experience, with two giant paddles rotating 360 degrees backwards and forwards around a centre axis.

Ever since Slammer opened in 2005, dependability problems plagued the ride.
