Project Amazon Rollercoaster Foundations Near Compilation
Chessington World Of Adventures
Sunday 15th May 2022
Groundworks for Project Amazon are fully underway at Chessington and it shouldn't be long until we start to see the rollercoaster track and buildings start to be constructed. But all in good time!
Work on foundations across the whole site has progressed rapidly since our last visit a few weeks ago. We've gone from seeing holes in the ground to full foundations ready for supports to be bolted onto. Around the whole of the Project Amazon site, we can see footers complete along with some still in progress. Those that are still being poured and made have plates sitting next to them showing off how many bolts and the space required between them. This could be our first proper clue as to who is manufacturing this ride!
Comparing the template of support bases we think it's between two manufacturers, Intamin or Bolliger & Mabillard. Comparing these bases against photos and plans we would say we're learning more towards Intamin, seeing as the ride will have a launch section. We've included a image of a Stealth support base which seems to match the guide plate.
Very exciting times are ahead at Chessington and we cant wait to see this project progress further.
