yes they shocked me as well. Why wouldn’t you just sell it? What was wrong with it anyway?
It's Merlin, we're talking about here people, they couldn't see a high quality attraction if it was right in front of them. They only thing they can see value in are the Parks SWs.
Name 1 ride that isn't a Secret Weapon or Hex, that's genuinely fantastic.
a ride that Merlin have put in……er…….
Nope can’t think of one
Nothing , it was just never that popular apparently. It wasn’t a free flowing, free swinging, gravity driven ride like Ripsaw or Boneshaker in the way that these rides span and swung so apparently is was quite boring, slow and over engineered.
Still, it’s better than what currently occupies its former site - a dead lifeless space.
A shame, they could’ve up-cycled the gondolas by installing a couple of bespoke picnic benches inside of them pre Mix Tape.
I never found it boring I have to say - always thought it was pretty good - filled a gap and made a change to coasters
Sounds quite sub-standard to me….
Better than rusting away in the bushes imo
Anyone know what the structure is in the woods beyond Thirteen’s queue line? It looks almost like an old queue line but I can’t think what ride it would have been for that far into the woods. Or maybe it’s nothing!
My money's on it being The Corkscrews old line, or something else that used to be part of Ug Land
I’m pretty sure it’s not the corkscrew’s old line as this was just around the front of the ride and didn’t extend into the woods (unless it did when it first opened?) I initially thought Boneshaker but it was never that far into the woods, and also never warranted a much of a queue line
Your link seems to take you to near the prospect tower on the other side of the valley, I’m guessing you don’t mean that area?
Can you post a screen shot of where you are referring to?
Have you an image? I think your referring to park of corkscrews old station / photo booth
I would if I knew how for reference if you go on Google maps, and then zoom in to the woods just south of Ritas bottom section you’ll see what looks like old queue lines
to add photo's I use https://imgbb.com/
Once there upload your picture and select BBcode full linked and paste that into your post. There are other ways to do it but that's how I do it.
Wouldn’t let me embed it but you’ll see where I mean if you click on the link.
I use discord to host photos. You just post the photo on there then copy and paste into the image box here.
That's definitely old queue line.
Yeah looks like old queue line to me.
If you want to embed it when selecting the link on imgbb click BBcode and then paste that in instead (usually works for me) if not then select the link you've got there and click the image button on the forums and post it in there.
