Amusement Park Ride Near Chessington World of Adventures Resort
Vampire is an Arrow suspended swinging roller coaster at Chessington World of Adventures Resort theme park in London, England. It opened in 1990 in the new Transylvania area, and was designed by John Wardley. The ride closed during the 2001 season so it could be modified to use new trains, and reopened in 2002. The ride has a gothic theme, and its station features strong theming, including an animatronic organist.HistoryThe Vampire opened in 1990 in the new Transylvania area at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, with coaster layout designed by John Wardley. The ride featured elaborate themed design, including a queueline through castle gates, a fog-filled underpass beneath the coaster track, a graveyard canopy and dark crypt passageway into the station. The station itself was dressed as a castle ballroom with torch chandeliers, Gothic murals by Rex Studios and a large pipe organ set piece. The famous theme music in the station was composed by Graham Smart in the style of an organ overture with hard rock embellishments, alluding to Phantom of the Opera.The station features a pneumatic animatronic organist character known as Marcel, produced by Tussauds Studios at the same at their Rock Circus animatronics show in London. The animatronic was programmed in time to the soundtrack using SMPTE timecode, appearing to play to the soundtrack. However, the intended synchronisation was not maintained following a minor refurbishment of the station c.1998. In 2014 the graveyard canopy was demolished following years of little maintenance. The station chandeliers were also removed, due to the winch motors used to lower them for inspection being removed.
