Drayton Manor has confirmed that it will close the Sombreros ride on October 31, 2010, with an "exciting new ride" set to replace it for the 2011 season.

As previously reported, the new ride is rumored to be a Vekoma-designed rollercoaster, although the park has refused to confirm or deny this. Screamscape reports that an announcement on Sombreros' replacement is due to be made in the next few months.

Sombreros sees guests climbing into giant Mexican hats, which then spin as they rotate around a central arm. Drayton Manor has previously confirmed that its replacement will not be a flat ride.
