    Does anyone know the date the park first operates this season. And I don't mean the main season I mean the john lewis and services events

    Will John Lewis have an event seeing as they can’t afford to pay any staff bonus this year due to zero profits. :rolleyes:

    To be fair the staff have to pay for the John Lewis event, so I imagine that covers the cost of hiring the park anyway.

    Details released? I don't usually keep a track of off season shenanigans, does this mean they plan on announcing its' departure? Or is it actually going to be something positive?

    It probably means they have no idea whether it's coming back or not themselves

    They might well be announcing details of TLC to The Blade or something; that's always a possibility! They replaced the entire ship only last closed season, so I don't see why they'd remove it so soon after that!

    They updated the Alton towers website recently and blade is still on there so surely it's not going

    highly unlikely but what about a refurbish/retheme with it being installed elsewhere?

    This is the same park that threw money at Sub Terra on modifications then closed it; not to mention the "closed for TLC" rides which have never re-opened nor will ever re-open.

    A new area for it is an interesting idea, however I can't imagine a location that could house it without having to do some upturning. The Blade is a pretty long ride.
