Flying Fish is a Mack Rides powered family roller coaster located at Thorpe Park in Surrey, England. The ride was known as "Space Station Zero" when it first opened in 1983 and was re-themed in 1990. It was removed in 2005 to make way for Stealth, a new roller coaster built for 2006. In 2007, the ride was reinstalled in another area of the park.

HistoryEdit

Space Station Zero opened in 1983 at Thorpe Park  in England and was Thorpe Park's first roller coaster. This indoor, space-themed ride was inspired by Space Mountain at Disneyworld. From the outside the building appeared to be a Georgian house but inside was themed around a space station. After boarding, the train travelled around a bend before being launched into space through a tunnel of flashing lights. The ride did two laps of the track, the first in the dark and the second lit by glitter balls to appear as stars. The attraction closed in 1989 before being moved outside and renamed The Flying Fish.


It is located in the Amity Cove area between Depth Charge and Tidal Wave. The ride opened on March 10, 2007 with a new colour scheme, on-ride camera, and new lap bar restraints.
