    This would have been impossible today without some significant abuse of the RAP system.

    Platinum fastrack would do it but that seems like an odd use of £105.

    Link doesn't work for me, possibly a FB permissions thing

    With Gangsta Granny and the RetroSquad all drawing significant crowds, is there any inkling of what the plans are for next year in terms of additions? I’m sure we’d usually have heard something by now from those “in the know”

    Nemesis with a queue...whatever next!
    Considering they are going to pull it down in the next few years, it is suddenly doing very well.

    Well I still stick to that opinion unless they give it a major overhaul at some point as its starting to become quite unreliable

    Anyone know why CRR always seem to open at 11am whereas everything else is always open at 10am?

    Money saving.
    Also many guests won't choose a water ride as the first ride of the day, they will wait until it has warmed up later on.

    It has been the case for many many years that rapids open at 11am. It’s a combination of the fact demand is low for the ride early in the day as people generally don’t want to go on water rides first off, and the fact it is an expensive ride to staff and run.

    Edit: @jon81uk beat me to it!

    They really are not. It almost certainly may need some major work due to its age that may need a season of downtime depending on the extent but there are no plans to get rid of Nemesis unless something has changed dramatically.

    Replacing the temporary Retrosquad rides with permanent flats would be a good start. Definitely not a waltzer but a permanent Smashing Jump and Super Trooper in X Sector and Forbidden Valley respectively (themed in to their respective areas of course) would be ace as they are being so popular. :)

    This would be brilliant. I’m still hoping for the return of a Mondial Supernova to AT in The Dark Forest themed as a possessed tree, but one can dream!

    Womping willow style! Would definitely make sense and a taller ride there is defo a must since the Waltzer is pretty hard to spot.

    The Unchained Oak as a name springs to my mind but it could be a clash between DF and Hex

    Yeah I didn't even see the Waltzer when I was in the area last week as it's so far back from the main path. :confused:

    Not sure the Chained Oak B&B would be happy with that either. :p

    Good point! On that note I’ve booked that place for our visit on 29th/30th June. It’s our first time stopping there.
