    I wouldn’t fully trust the website, I wouldn’t have thought Merlin would have set next years budget for the resort yet so things will probably change.

    I've heard the operating budget is two crisp new style five pound notes and a packet of smokey bacon crisps.

    I wonder what will replace forbidden sweep. I'm guessing the chances of a new flat next season are very low given bugets and time?

    Isn't that the same thing at a Merlin park?

    :)

    Yeah i did think of waiting for the sun code but Merlin Holiday Club was 40% discount and it came in at £105 for a family of 4 which i think is a good price for EV

    That went to the board for approval and never got through. The original plan was for a Grab Bag packet of Walkers Smokey Bacon, but they realised they could get a Sainsburys Ready Salted multi pack for 89p instead and share it amongst the parks.

    Why is the park opening on a Friday this year? I thought the park always opened on Saturdays.

    I would be more than happy if they did open sw8 on that Friday but I just can't see it not opening on a weekend. I could be wrong though :)

    The park did; the date was on the back of vouchers handed out.

    A selection of photos from towersstreet showing closed season. Interestingly there is a purple rapids boat with modifications.

    Just looks like a sample boat. Only one door fitted and head rest to the left of that and a rail on the right.

    The safety door is a different shade of purple, so looks like that has been added independently of the original.

    Look's like they have taken an old boat, and tried out a few mods on it before modifying the yellow boats
