Rush at Thorpe Park looks to remain closed for the rest of the 2017 theme park season. Although not confirmed by the park yet the maintenance team have started to dismantle the ride ready for its closed season maintenance. All of the seats have been removed since our visit last weekend where only one side of the ride had all cables connected.
The ride was shut a few weeks ago after what we think was a normal cable change on the left hand side nearest to the ops cabin. We expect a whole new cable for the last 2 months of the season isn't cost effective since they get changed every season.
We’ve contact the park to try confirm the news however the website just says:
+++ PLEASE NOTE: Rush is not currently available +++
EDIT: Thorpe Park have confirmed the ride will be closed for the rest of the season
"Rush is planned to be closed for the remainder of the season now unfortunately"
