    Has the definition of ''insight" changed?

    What twaddle. The guy who operates the chocolate fountain is not a good source.

    Really? I strongly disagree with you there. Air was an extremely strong brand. Everyone knew Air as "the one you could fly on". A lot of the GP tend to still refer to Galactica as Air...the pre-show even has nods to the air brand with fonts and names.

    Once VR leaves, Towers SHOULD revert it to Air, open up the station again, remove that terrible cow Eve, pressure wash the track, leave the stone work grey, leave the Galatica A logo on the path/building (it could pass as an A for Air), leave the portal (if you must), bring back the old logos, fonts, signage and keep the Galactica music in the queues and area but the old Air theme in the station...bring back the station dispatch theme and open up the bridge and BOOM, you have one of your most well known brands back.

    But this is Merlin and Towers....they won't do this and instead all it will be is Galactica with a turned off portal, removed VR (if we're luckily they might remove all the wires though), turned off projection screens in the station and peeling vinyl. All references to VR text wise will be taped over which will be peeled over during the season and the tunnel will have those RGB disco LEDs still. :)

    Yes. However i believe some of the stuff could stay.

    I think it better weather proofed, paint the walls in sky blue and add a few lights

    I think getting the screens to display sky with clouds drifting across the screen. Maybe even add people flying like they where in the original advert.

    I agree, I used to love the blue lights come on, the seats tilting back, the "assume the position" boom and then "now fly ....." as you exit the station.

    Sad to see 10-4 returning it was expected. However it does say all other rides open at 10 so that’s a positive!

    Open from 10am :confused:. Hopefully they won't reintroduce the staggered openings but who knows.

    A 4 Day Week for staff at most on minimum wage having to travel to the middle of no where. I'm amazed they manage to keep most of the staff.
