    Probably, same style as Chessington ones (not that there are different styles of them).

    What amazes me more is there always seems to be an every willing group of mugs willing to camp out in them when they could have 10 days in a tent a mile down the road for the same cost of a nights stay.

    Probably for the Santa’s sleep over event, I’m sure there was a tipi related option for staying in the enchanted village

    Just a general observation on Galactica yesterday, Got the last train of the season with VR (I only wear it in Air's tunnel cause that VR scene is quite nice also VR > Concrete) and it will only play the left station video so if you dispatch from the right station, You get the wrong video and it's weird.

    ...right...we pass a camp site with teepees in (much better quality than whatever the hell that thing is) on the x52, its very close too (like, in cotton)

    Just sayin!

    ...now I think about it, didn't the original Enchanted Village plans show a big entertainment tent?
    The tents in the 1st picture are interconnected, could that be the entertainment thing?

    I’m not sure how to quote tweets but Alton Towers tweeted a picture this morning of the blades queueline with the blade removed and the caption ‘what’s missing’ is this done for maintenance?

    Yes this is done every year. Although there will probably be one year some time soon it will be dismantled and never put back up :(

    You would think that a Tweet that begins "Let's play a game!" is not how they would gently break the news that they have removed another flat ride, but maybe they have been getting PR lessons from Billy & Jigsaw.
