Thorpe Park
2005 - 2017

Slammer was a ride like no other, it was last of its kind in the world for a fair number of years before the ride closed! The S&S Sky Swatter took 48 people up into the air, rotating you 360º at heights of over 105ft. 

Guaranteed to leave your head in a spin, the ride rotated you both forwards and backwards 3 times each way. With very minimal shoulder and lap restraints, this ride is not for the final hearted. Due to ongoing issues over the years and what we expect was yet another big set back, the ride was closed in 2017. Even though the ride was on the park map the ride never opened for the 2017 season.
