Saw - The Ride experience

Based on the infamous horror movie franchise, this themed roller coaster goes further than any vertical drop ride has gone before. After a terrifying indoor section, riders face the torturous tick, tick, tick up a completely vertical chain lift hill. A 100ft drop awaits as the roller coaster car plummets through free fall at 55 miles per hour. Face your fears on one of the top ten steepest roller coasters in the world!

Thrill seekers and scary movie fans will endure 4.7 g-force, the highest g-force roller coaster ride at Thorpe Park Resort. Expect to be turned upside-down three times, around the twisting, turning track of dive loops, heartline rolls and surprises around every corner.

Look out for the camera, as you’ll want a ride photo to remember the time you were a character in the world’s scariest horror film franchise!

Saw - The Ride Reviews

Saw: The Ride roars and screams, as if it’s alive [...] The Drop delivers completely. As you crest the top of the hill, the track completely disappears before you. You really do get a “freefall” sensation. It’s pretty breathtaking and hard to describe.

- Coaster Critic

It’s an incredible experience that I would ride over and over again” - Sean Evans, Back to the Movies“As opposed to other coasters in the park, Saw is away from any pathway and gets around the forest, so you really don’t know what you’re going to find.
