A few weeks in...

Saw - The Ride has been open for nearly a month and thousands have braved the ride by now. Advertising campaigns have been popping up on Radio and TV.
Click here to watch the full TV Advert. Also you can look on my favorites on my You Tube channel to watch many clips of SAW, related videos from the web. SAW has had a few problems running after its opening. Make sure you check the Rides Currently Unavailable list to make sure it’s not closed on the day your will be visiting. Some great news this week, the park have added a new Single Rider queue to the ride, so for people who visit the park alone (like me) or just want to skip the long queue just join the short SRQ line.

Treat yourself to some spectacular images from various sites:

SAW’S Opening Day!!

Sorry I have not been updating this blog recently as I have had trouble with the computer.
SAW – The Ride has not been running properly since it opened. On Thursday, for the coaster enthusiast event the ride was shut all day as something was wrong with the air gates. The next day, Friday, the ride was running fine all day for the annul pass and winners of the competition event. Saturday was the official opening day for the ride and the day I went. I have never seen so many people waiting at the park’s gate by 9:30 ready to sprint to the ride. When the park opened at 10 everybody ran to SAW.
I was one of the first in the queue line and after 20 long minutes of continuous testing the ride was officially open to the public.
And hey was I impressed!!! The themeing was amazing. I’ll try not to spoil it for you who have not been yet. But I can tell you there were gruesome torcher devices everywhere and lots of other scary stuff to make you feel like you’re a part of the game. Going inside the building you are greeted by blood splattered around the walls and two shotguns aiming towards you going off every so often. The guns scared me s**tless. Lots of sounds everywhere such as, Billy puppet laughing and talking on a TV screen and screams and loud clangs and various other scary stuff going on. Going up the stairs the fast trackers got mixed with the ordinary Q line in little groups and the staff warning you “don’t look up” as there were lot of dead bodied floating in the air. After that you enter the loading platform.
A good tip, two cars leave at the same time, and for safety reasons the second car has to stop for a bit before the ride continues. If you are in the second car you get a little pre show of Billy on his tricycle talking to you about what you are about to embark. Luckily I got on the front row of the second car.
The staff put their thumbs down instead of up when you get sent off. After the talk by Billy you move into complete darkness and then suddenly some blades come churning towards you.
Immediately the ride drops at an extreme angle and make you really jump out of your seat. Impressive for such a small drop. After a sharp corner to the left you go through a room, not really sure what was in it, looked like some axis trimming above your head with some gusts of strong wind blowing into your face (made my lips go dry). After that you head into the barrel roll with some sort of dead body spraying some warm blood into your face as you’re traveling upside-down. Then you go zooming outside the station building just realizing that the main ride hasn’t started yet. Then Billy appears again on another screen saying “over” followed by an evil laugh and other clangs sounds when you look straight up the 100 foot climb. It goes so fast, no time to think of what you are about to embark on. Going over the top you get a glimpse of the park before you plummet straight down the amazing 100 degree drop. The head chopper effect really worked for me and made me duck or not sure if it was just me braising through the 55 MPH speeds. Skipping through most of the amazing ride elements as you have got to experience it for yourself. The best part of the ride for me was surprisingly the first drop, thought it was a bit better than the main drop, but they were both very thrilling. I also loved the amount of airtime on the ride such as the main air time hill and the drop just before the dive loop going off the MCBR. That to me was a more intense weightless feeing than the main air time hill. Both drops had a nice pop of airtime. And the dive loop was a great ending to the ride. Pulled a lot of forces and made me stick in to my seat. When the ride comes to an end and you collect your belongings Billy appears again saying “ you think it’s over, the games have only just begun”(most people missed it as they were so excited from the ride and were dying to see what they looked like on the ride picture).

Afterwards I rushed to buy a fast track ticket to skip the long wait, then I noticed the ride wasn’t running and people were leaving the queue line. The staff told us that the ride had some technical difficulties on its computer system. People were anxiously waiting to hear news and half an hour later it was confirmed that SAW would not be running again that day. It was soo disappointing after such a build-up and as today was the official opening of SAW. I was lucky to get on it once. Unfortunately the ride is still having problems today (Sunday) and not sure when it will be back in operation. Just have to keep an eye on the rides currently unavailable list on Thorpe Park’s main site.

In my opinion SAW – The Ride was superbly outstanding and definitely worth the 3 year wait. This coaster is better than anything else at the park by miles. The themeing on SAW was phenomenal definitely reaches up to Universal & Disney standard. You got to ride it to see for yourself how amazing SAW – the ride really is. I did not get as many pictures as I had hoped as the ride closed.

SAW - The Ride on BBC News

Today I switched on the TV just in time to see SAW - The Ride on the 6 o'clock BBC News. Lucky managed to capture it all on my camera for the people who missed it or for those who wanted to see it again and again. The video shows riders having fun as well as the news reporter (some facts she said ain’t true).
Here’s the video from BBC breakfast news (videoed by Calum a You Tuber)
and Here’s the video I took from the evening news.
Also in the first video you can see a new poster saying “on Ride DVD for only £12”. When I get mine I'll post it on YouTube.
Edit: Extreme Spoiler! "Shy news" POV video and lots more.

Thorpe’s new map, Competition finished, Construction update and more.

Today Thorpe Park released the new map for 2009 on their site and SAW looks good on it and definitely grabs your attention. The one of the first to Ride SAW competition is now ended so congratulations if you got the e-mail saying that you have won! Sadly I did not get one. Also today there’s three new pictures posted on the Thorpe Parks main site of random people I suppose, riding SAW. And on Thorpe Park Mania there’s an update of the site; Saw's head chopper blades were spinning , along with the police car's lights and the flickering entrance sign lights. I’ve been looking very closely at my pics from Saturday and if you look at this picture, it appears to be the onride photo camera, so prepare to say ‘cheese’ after going over the airtime hill. And another thing I spotted in this picture from around the queue line right at the back are bits of theming such as a wooden torcher device, what looks like a random police car door and some other various stuff. That’s pretty much it from today.
Hope you didn’t get too bored reading this.

Construction update (one week to go)

Saturday 7th March 2009 – back to the park one last time for a construction update, as next visit will be opening day of the ride for the public. The site was very busy all day with worker and ride testing and polishing, getting ready for next week. More painting and signs around the place and extra themeing going on. The police car will hopefully be staying because of the siren sounds and flashing lights going on. The Colossus and Samurai queue lines have been extended. New paving is being laid from Samurai to SAW. (Spoiler) lots of sounds being played around the area such as the loud clangs, dog barking, police sirens, and “Billy” the evil puppet laughing just before you go up the lift. And much more sound you can just about hear on my videos.
See Pictures or Video, you can also click on an image to enlarge.

Next update from me will be on the main opening day this Saturday when this blog will be jam packed with news and maybe if you are lucky a POV (point of view).

Sunday 22nd February 2009 – A few pictures on Thorpe Park Mania from yesterday. Work continues with the fencing almost complete as well as the paving. More ride signs and barbed wire on top of the fences of the queue line put up and lots more stuff. The 9 meter Wind Mill and Main area sign should be up soon as fundation is being laid. On one signpost is a notice saying: 'Please be aware that there will be live actors in the queueline today' (very exciting).

21 February 2009

Construction update

Saturday 21th February 2009 – It’s my third visit in a week and just three weeks till SAW’s opening day. Many workers on site today, most came in just for painting and the theming. Lots of work has happened today, with some finishes and touches added around the site. Some signs for the ride have been put up as well as the CCTV cameras (not sure if they were real or just the theming) and barb wire put up on top of fences on the queue line behind the station building. Fake windows have been installed to the building. Not much testing going on today but managed to get you one or two videos. My next visit will be in 2 weeks but you can still see updates from around the web on my blog.
See Pictures or Video, you can also click on an image to enlarge.

Edit: I also find these shots on this Site after I just left the park, more painting has happend and the fast track and main queue line signs have been put up!!.

Saw: The Ride Info

Saw: The Ride has now been released on the Official Website and tells us a lot about the ride Click Here
to see the link. The ride at its fastest point reaches up to speeds of 89km/h (55mph) (Colossus 45 mph) (Nemesis Inferno 47.8 mph) so I think you can imagine the speed now. The Info also tells us that more than 1,100 passengers board the cars every hour, same as Nemesis Inferno, so the queue line will move at a nice rate. To experience SAW you must be a minimum height of 1.4m tall. And the ride it is not recommended if you’re under 12 (sorry kids) At least all the age related speculation has gone, no more arguing on the Forums. It’s all looking very good.
Edit: popping in to Thorpe tomorrow to get you another update.

18 February 2009

Construction update

Wednesday 18th February 2009 – Just got back from the Thorpe Park again to keep this blog running and captured lots more shots of the site this time.

See Pictures or Video. you can click on an image to enlarge

Much more progress since I last saw it four days ago with busy workers finishing the paving on the ground. Fences has started being put up, silver frames have been attached around the two huge industrial fans, as well as a big rusty pipe attached to the main building leading to the fake boiler tank, and some various other little bits and bobs. A little testing was going on. And just to confirm “Saw” The Ride’s opening day will be on the 14th of March. Next update from me should be in a week’s time.

14 February 2009

Construction updates (First day back)

It’s the first day back for the February Thrill Chill, and just one month till SAW opens as well as the park’s main start of the 2009 season. Saturday 14th February 2009 – The site has had some major progress since I last saw it. The cars were running most of the day but only took 2 videos of the cars going down the drop, and not as many pics of the site that I normally take as the Canada creek section and Colossus area was shut most off the day.
See Pictures or Video. (Got to have a photobucket account to view the pics sorry, but the video shows it all)

From what I saw the ride entrance frame was up. Lots of paving has been put down, and the island is getting island off and the bridge to it is starting to get
constructed as well as the 2nd path heading down to the Crust snacks bar. The head chopper effect has got even more spikes and more theming added on to it.

Someone from a fan forum confirms that the head chopper blades will be spinning on the ride’s main drop and also there will be a part of the ride’s queue that goes past a body that is bleeding and shoots out warm blood when guests walk past it, (Sounds very spooky) I guess only time can tell.

Construction update

Friday 30th January 2009 – SAW: The Ride testing is now in full swing, and TPM are very pleased to bring you pictures from that today! All the shots are of the cars running on its tracks
Click Here for the Link!!

I have to say the cars are looking really good, highly themed, with some rusted effect on its side and blood splatters as well, and I like how the cars are more open designed compared to the original Euro – Fighter. (But it’s a bit of a shame that the head rests arn't lowered, so you can get a better view from the back row) Rumors told that everytime a car goes down the first drop an alarm is played, Part of the theme perhaps?. Or just to warn the workers that the ride is testing so stay way back.

Many thanks to Thorpe Park Mania.

Ride Testing

Saturday, 24th January 2009 - Thorpe Park Mania has some amazing first footage of Saw - The Ride testing.
Click Here To See The Video!!

The ride runs so smoothly and so fast, at least 50 mph. The noise sounds brilliant through the woods (well apart from that squeeking noise that they have to adjust) and the air time hill is just right as well as all the other elements, but I do think the last Inversion (Dive Loop) looks a bit too fast going over but when the MCBR (block brake's) get's adjusted they should be just the right speed for some bad ass hang time!! (Edid: The MCBR are now adjusted and the cars run much slower than in the testing video so you will definitely get some great hang time on the Dive Loop now :)

Many thanks to Thorpe Park Mania.

12 January 2009

Small construction update

Saturday, 11th January 2009 - TPG have got an update of the site showing the station building from all angles (except from front) from the outside of the park. Work continues on the interactive elements inside, audio and visual components, queue line. See some new pics of the shed you go through just before you enter the vertigo lift hill, with lots of pipes dangling down to create the theme atmosphere. It is bound to be more theming when complete.

If you've recently visited Thorpe Park and have some great construction photos of “SAW The Ride” I'd love to use them, so everyone else can see a bit of the action. Let me know by emailing me at
