    I think it mainly runs from the fact that we all thought and hoped she would get something for the 20th anniversary. But all we got was a sign in the Air Shop and some new merch...

    We can only hope that plans were put in place too late to materialise last season and thus we will get something for the 21st.

    Towers have hinted that they will be giving Nemesis a bit of a re-furb for next year. Although we all know how quickly plans like that can change. I believe there have been other rumours in the past also but I've not heard of anything recently. Chances are they may paint the station but forget that they need detail in the painting and actually make it look awful! Either that or nothing will happen.

    I don't think it not being in the FHT posters means anything, pretty sure it didn't feature in them last year either. They certainly haven't marketed the thrill element of FHT for the last couple of years.

    :)

    I thin the past two years all the posters have been moshi monster related so haven't featured Nemesis. Apparently the line up will be released during December Towers Tweeted the other day.

    Best we will get for Nemesis is a bit of a paint maybe, but I bet the budget gets cut!

    I'm 99% sure I remember reading on here (I think it was in the interview with the manager of AT) dissatisfaction with the 20th anniversary not having being marked in a better way and his reply was something like "maybe we have something planned for the 21st"

    So not a massive move forwards from speculation but slightly better right?

    Also not sure it would be easy or even right to turn a whole train backwards or even the back car (but I live in hope) however it is long over due a fixing up, I realise some people love it and im already on thin ice but its showing its age badly and needs something to happen, the noise on the hill lift is shocking!

    They love those temporary fences more than they love shipping containers

    It just looks naff! To me that's one tree and some lights around a games stall which won't even be open! (Or will it?)

    That's not all there is in the entire park :/

    Besides, Sealife is the only thing on park open because of Pirate weekend so it's not surprising there's not tonnes of Christmassy stuff around Mutiny Bay.

    It doesn't pay to be cynical about EVERYTHING that Towers ever do. :)

    My point was that they've gone out of their way to theme it christmassy, just they've only put a very small amount in. Looks a bit half-arsed.

    Anyway, moving on.

    The park is open for Christmas for hotels guests from next Sunday. Mutiny Bay is part of that hence decoration.

    I think they do make an effort in terms of themeing for Christmas on Towers Street, at night it does look magical.

    Now if only they made the effort for themeing for Scarefest.

    COME ON LOLOLOL!!! :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

    That looks hilarious, sorry @josht dude you know I love ya mate but really I thought that post was a pee take as well :D

    That stall with less theme than my fireplace and a smaller tree looks very very sorry for itself lol!!

    I understand what's being said in the following posts and that totally makes sense to me, but guys come on, give @Tom.B a break!! That photo had a sarcastic tone to it given the usual style.

    I tell you what. All those who thought that photo was supposed to be serious, go find me a photo of Europa looking that sorry for itself and meant as complimentary. Then I'll accept you aren't all being proper harsh to Tom.

    Give the boy a break, that photo oozed typical forum satire, and rightly so.

    On the other side, in terms of what the park really looks like as a whole package that I would still like to see.

    That photo just had this air of sadness to it lol!! The H&B stand looks all forlorn, like "please come and see me, look, I have a tree, all my ducks have gone, but I have some green - please someone love me".
