Paultons Park has all but confirmed the name of its new ride for 2012 as Magma, after posting a logo for the attraction to its official teaser website.
The logo, posted to theresnosmokewithoutfire.com, replaces the previous teaser image that showed a volcano and a dinosaur. The ride system that will be employed by Magma is yet to be revealed, but it seems certain that the attraction will feature a volcanic theme.
Magma will be located close to the EDGE Disk 'O ride and the Cobra roller coaster, with Paultons Park claiming that "unusual rumbling noises and rising ground temperatures" have been felt on grass close to the two thrill rides. Early rumors have pointed towards a small drop tower ride being installed on the site, but these are currently unsubstantiated.
Paultons Park has seen a major boost in attendance in 2011 due to the opening of Peppa Pig World. It is unlikely to open a new attraction in 2012 aimed at the same young age group, with a thrill ride aimed at older visitors more likely to be on the cards.
