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.
I hope they don't see this as a reason not to build a permanent flat in this area. Not only are the Waltzers the weaker of the 4, but the flow of the area is completely wrong.
As built, Festival Park was the area that just kept on giving. You walked in from Fountain Square, the food outlets to your left, the Corkscrew to your right and flats against the back drop of trees as far as the eye could see.
Then some idiot thought they'd built an Intamin launch track in front of it all. Later, a further barrier of a wooden underpass was added.
This area was designed back when the funfair was still in use, the Towers ruins were the main draw, Towers Street didn't exist and the car park was at this end of the park. The main entrance to Dark Forest would make much more sense being from the Swiss cottage end of the area, starting between the archways and the kiosk.The flow would work much better in general. All that would be needed is some signage.
