    Sequoia Magic Loop was refurbished for the 2019 season but this year, it has remained shut (could just be temporary cost cutting or weight load as the train can only hold 4 people). On-ride, it's by no means a good coaster but it's actually kind of fun to be on.

    It had been up for sale for a few years if I remember rightly, but based on the fact they gave it a bit of a tart up to coincide with the Year of Magic in 2019 (When it became “Magic Loop”) I’d assume no one wanted it and they’re now stuck with it.

    That said, this is Merlin. A proud tradition of dressing rides for the funeral :tearsofjoy:

    They SHOULD rip out both rides and there's space for a decent sized new thing.

    But they won't.

    Whatever was supposed to open new in 2020

    That’s not including anything that’s been closed or mothballed for years *glares at Thorpe*.

    Justin’s house also at towers (which could actually open at some pint when rules were relaxed but they chose not to). There were also plenty of rides shut at Heide park when I went in the summer, which were closed due to COVID, such as the observation tower, driving school, a selection of flat rides. However pretty sure most are closed due to costs and not COVID, as similar rides were open in other German theme parks we did on that trip!
