    Im not sure if this is still there but a few years ago i found this in the gardens

    This is stuck to a window along the Hex disabled access behind Driving School
    [​IMG]

    This is located just before the screaming heads in Dual

    Here is a photo of one of the stones in the wall along the Haunted Hollow, presumably the year the driveway was originally constructed

    I don't think it states the year in it anywhere but its been there for as long as i can remember, at the very least the last 10 years.

    Presumably predates the construction of Splash Landings, otherwise they would of been advertising that instead you would think

    oh and also just remembered this, some of the very tiny amount of original Towers interior left on site

    I remember walking through a route not often used by the public and spotting a plastic drinks cup with Henry hound on the side! It was very very faded and all cracked but made me smile none the less.

    It had been spotted on TTF a year or two ago and I saw a cup gusting under a pile of leaves near X-Sector.

    In one of Oblivion's shuttles, all restraints are repainted apart from one which is still the fading orange. (Subject to change as I haven't seen it since the towards of the season despite my many rides on Oblivion.

    I'd say the skeletons within the truck were worth a look out for!

    Didn't they remove the safeway logo this year? Pretty sure I was left disappointed when I last used it beginning of season.

    Something to look out for.. Air written in the block paving near the shop (half covered by the seating area of ripsaw cafe now)

    I dunno if its still there. But between the haunted hollow and the flume you can find the buffers from the end of the old train line.
