Wicker man will certainly help massively with soaking in crowds this week. So hopefully it opens soon, otherwise its going to be a horrid time for the likes of the smiler and th13teen as they'll get ridiculous queues againHopefully whatever it is will be sorted soon though, the park really needs that ride this week with the crowds they're pulling in!
You said it in much better way and in more detail than me! I was thinking along the lines of that it's not the temperature itself, but the sudden change in temperature (and dampness) from what we've had these last few weeks till now.I don't know what the issue is with WM at the moment, but you've got to remember there's a huge difference between wooden coasters and steel coasters. Steel is one material bolted together, wooden coasters you've got the timber frame, the laminate and then the steel running plates on top.
The wood is far more susceptible to atmospheric changes and parts are changed much more frequently and at differing intervals across the year. Although 23 degrees isn't all that much compared to actual heatwaves (which newspapers seem to have forgotten this week!), it is a marked change to the non stop wet and damp we've had for the last month. When those repairs and routine maintenance have been carried out in that wet and cool weather, it's entirely possible the sharp shock into dry conditions has caused a few problems as the newly fitted/repaired materials expand and contract.
Hopefully whatever it is will be sorted soon though, the park really needs that ride this week with the crowds they're pulling in!
Even my bank has updated their logo and made a commitment / statement to LGBTQ+ causes , but not a whiff from Towers
