    That’s only for stoppages and breakdowns etc. Routine maintenance is the line when a ride fails to open all day or they know it will be shut all day.

    "Technical delay" is used for breakdowns usually. "Temporary delay" is used for non-technical stoppages like guest incidents (e.g. someone spewing) etc.

    It's what they told me when I asked the staff that it was down to a scheduled maintenance day, was a bit of a bummer but still had a great day at the park

    Online booking price for weekends and school holidays has gone up by a quid. Was £38, now £39.

    Anyone know if the Towers ruins are open to walk around at the moment?

    Nemmy and Funk N Fly haven’t reopened yet this morning. Hopefully they won’t be closed for too much longer!

    Yeah hopefully they'll both be fixed by the weekend, as two out of four rides open in that area won't be great for the expected crowd levels.
    Plus I'm going on Sunday so need my Nemmy fix lol.
    Fingers crossed! :)

    That's a shame. Probably because they are preparing to re-install the refurbished front windows. Was hoping to go up there on Sunday mind. :(

    Knowing towers, they are probably preparing for scarefest

    Good point actually.

    Well, both Nemmy and Funk'n'Fly were closed all day again today. Hopefully they'll both be back in operation by Saturday, ready for the crowds. :)

    Remember when there were rumours about nemmy getting a refurb. Seems like a long time ago now

    That will happen though, I'd expect in the next couple of years.

    Looks like the Stained Glass Windows that have been under restoration for years are finally going back in. Great to see.

    I have to say Nemesis has had a hell of a lot of downtime this season, probably the worse out of any other ride this year. It’s definitely in need of some major work, as it just seems to be down for whole days now.

    There was a time Nemesis was the most reliable coaster on park ....

    The fact that both Nemesis and Funk n Fly are down at the same time makes me wonder if this could be a power supply issue? Obviously not to the whole of Forbidden Valley but to those 2 areas?

    Nemesis is just general maintenance. Yes I know staff are told to say this with whole day closures but I could actually see the engineers in the maintenance shed and on the lift
