Flamingo Land Is to get 3 new rides for the 2013 season,
Flamingo Land has revealed that three “sensational” new rides will be coming to the park for its 2013 season.
. More Information can be found at this website http://riderater.co.uk/2012/flamingo-land-to-add-three-new-rides-in-2013/" I personally think that this is a good move for FL as its my home park and the first park I ever went to, can't wait to find out what these rides are. :b :b

^ As someone who rode it as BMR-X at Kobe Portopialand, let me agree wholeheartedly with this!

Not that I'd hold my breath for it.

Its been announced that Flamingo Land WILL be adding a Zamparela Volare to the former site of the corkscrew for the 2013 season the story reported as by riderater.co.uk (permission to post story on here has been granted)

Flamingo Land will install a Zamperla Volare flying roller coaster for its 2013 season, this website understands.

It will be positioned on the former site of the Corkscrew roller coaster, in the Metropolis area of the theme park.

It will accompany the addition of two further rides this year, whose identities are currently unknown.

The standard factory model Volare stands at approximately 20 meters above ground, which would not require planning permission from the local council.

Their trains seat four people, with the ride having a maximum theoretical throughput of around 600 per hour.

Rumors of the ride’s arrival have been circulating since late last year.

EDIT
An Example of the volare can be found on this link- http://rcdb.com/9205.htm?p=35974
Also I'm Guessing that Flamingo Land have bought the volare that previously belonged to Elitch Gardens as it seams on RCDB that it has moved park. Just a thought.

Well, now I know the source of tonight's nightmares. I hope you're happy Flamingo Land. I love Zamperla, but not when they make this coaster.

So, they're replacing a rough Vekoma Corkscrew with something...worse?

Elitch's Flying Coaster is operating at Scream Zone in Coney Island.

I've heard some volare's aren't necessarily horrible, I mean I heard the one in Finland is tolerable, I'm hoping that Zamperla can find a way to make it a better ride, its been a couple of years since the last one and I'm hoping for the park's sake that its much better!
