    Just retheme it back to Air. Can't be too hard. Just tear down that giant portal thing and repaint everything light blue, and maybe just to please those people who kept complaining about Air's tunnel, paint a big smiley face on the ground saying "There, you happy now TowersTimes?".

    Two further things have come to me since my comment yesterday why don't they turn the park map into a "where's wally " type game "Find the non rollercoaster attractions! "
    Also a further game could be devised whereby guests can find attractions or their old site on the park but not on the map because they are closed or have magically disappeared for game stands.
    The place is a mess such a shame when I compare it to my visits in 2015 what a difference 3 years make .
    NOTE don't use the incident as an excuse as I'm sure the cut team already had ripsaw, NST and Charlie in their sights and the flume had to go because it was knackered .

    Look no further than the Main Admin offices on the right hand side as you go down Towers Street! All of the first floor is Admin Offices & any bit of the ground floor not occupied by Box Office / Corner Coffee is too. Or the Admin offices in the Magic HQ building!

    Eh, personally I'm a much bigger fan of the theming of Galactica than that of Air. Air's theming was kinda lame in all honesty, with not much to it, at least Galactica has an actual theme, a space theme is far more interesting and fleshed out than... Air.

    Personally I think the brand and style of Galactica is MUCH better than that of Air. Space really captures people's imagination, so it just works.

    A shame the VR couldn't work long term, as I do think the idea has potential. But making the technology practical and affordable, whilst creating a streamlined, quality experience for guests is a long way off for a park like Towers.

    So we're now going to have a space themed coaster that has a ride experience that has nothing to with space? This place gets more embarrassing by the day.

    I also prefer the Galactica branding to the Air branding and would like to see it stay, despite the removal of the VR. Even though the Air branding is arguably more iconic than Galactica's, I personally prefer the soundtrack and general aesthetic of Galactica.

    Who looked at that map and went "good work guys, that'll do us!"

    Seems the laziness of Merlin has stretched far beyond the actual park to the point where they are giving the intern the job of adding the logos. Nothing about that map makes me desperate to go.

    Have just had two days at the park, adding from the no VR Galactica, Congo river rapids was drained and wasn't running yet this season (no waterfalls yet then!), battle gallions also wasn't running yet ( although you would have to of been mad to of ridden it in that weather!)

    Not sure if it's new news but going by what staff told myself Smilers single rider queue is now in operation again, was told it had been brought back but this was the first time I had ever used it so didn't really notice if it had been gone previously. It seemed to be the only ride with it, did ask at spinball but pretty sure they aren't running with it, really hope they bring them back as they benefit everyone. Looked like some painting had taken place in smilers exit stairs. WickerMan at the end of the day was absolutely hauling round! Taking into account it was pre the begining of the season I had two very good days.

    Id be very surprised if the waterfall was reopened - especially as DM are still being investigated by HSE

    Nemesis is an alien themed coaster with a ride experience that has nothing to do with aliens.

    Mako is a shark themed coaster with a ride experience that has nothing to do with sharks.

    It's just the way it goes.

    Exactly, I have no issues with the Galatctica theme remaining despite the lack of VR.

    As long as they do something about the awful Galatica tunnel in the Queue line. That was the worse bit of the re-theme as it was so covered in Graffiti!

    The bridge uses to give some nice views of the ride, not sure why they thought the tunnel would be better.

    I suspect it was either add a tunnel, or add 6ft high fences and danger of death signs to the bridge as per the Merlin Ridiculous Fence Act (2016).

    I cannot believe they're leaving TTQ to rot another year.

    Who the hell has approved all of these FAILED projects?
