    Whilst the app has been updated the map section hasn’t changed. You can see where they have badly edited out CATCF and Twirling Toadstool as the colour doesn’t match the surrounding areas.

    Were they not on before? I genuinely don’t know whether they were but if they weren’t but are now, that’s quite promising.

    Casting for the dungeons has begun! Looks like the actors will be getting a lot of training (hopefully) as auditions are on 27th/28th November which would give them a lot of time to prepare them in other dungeons. Last admissions are 23rd November, if anyone here is interested. ;)

    No! I thought that I stole the crown of negativity on these boards when I got heavily criticised for being so, a few weeks back :p

    Am I missing something? I can’t see NST or CATCF on the new app anywhere? Other than the actual buildings?

    No you’re right. The NST building is there but not labelled. The Charlie building isn’t even on the map at all. On the other side the CBeebies Hotel is labelled but isn’t physically on the map itself.

    Since the map got updated a couple of years ago Charlie and tree top quest was removed, but sub terra has always remained.

    Strangely when they added Wicker Man this year they never added CBeebies Land hotel or the changes to the plaza.

    The park map is incredibly frustrating. They can dedicate the time to label steps, yet they can allow Sub Terra's building to remain on there and fail to label the abandoned toilets in the Gardens?

    I don't get why Sub-Terra is still on the site if they have no plan to reopen it

    If The Blade finally cops it next year I suspect they'll at least make an attempt to re-open it. The intentions are probably there when they can finally afford to staff it. Perhaps that's why they aren't adding to the flat ride portfolio; they'd rather just scrape the pennies to operate the biggest waste of £4 million Merlin have ever spent.

    I really hope they do manage to bring it back to life - even if it’s with no baggage hold and nobody in the end mini maze. It just adds something else to do and it’s indoors! Will be needed if visitor numbers continue to pick up and even more sorely if (as mentioned above) Blade can’t make it through closed season.

    Forbidden Valley itself needs to feel loved again... yes they gave it some TLC but it’s had Ripsaw removed, currently has no options for food unless you want a coffee or the RCR and has a dark ride sat SBNO. For such a stand out area of the park it’s poor.

    Where are all these Blade closure rumours coming from?

    The fact it has only just scraped by these last few seasons and Merlin hate flat rides. Also it is 40 years old this year and metal fatigue is a thing
