    What makes you say that? The press were not informed before Saw re-opened.

    An e-stop button next to the entrance makes sense, so good to see that there. Looks deliberately faced the wrong way to ensure no idiots go pressing it for a laugh.

    I wouldn't get too excited seeing staff cleaning the area. Yeah it could mean it's opening soon, or it could mean the area is being made clean and presentable for some men in suits to see all the work that has been done... Would be nice to see it open soon but lets not get ahead of ourselves. Work has been going on for weeks now, and could carry on for longer for all we know.

    I agree men un suits will be the first people to be round, hopefully that is booked for tomorrow and we are looking at part way through the week

    Not sure they would clean it for the suits. After all the rest of the park looks a dump and that's open!

    Off topic and you may be right, but the train is now significantly shorter since the accident. I think the last train now was in the middle before.

    It was a nod to my Smiler aapparel and a comment from a staff member on park ... or maybe they were just throwing crumbs of hope out to a sorry looking coaster enthusiast to make the queue for the Postman Pat vans i was stood in more bearable?

    Thanks. Hard to say really I'd imagine staff could face discipline if they mouth about a re-opening.

    I agree about staff not letting any secrets out ... maybe I just looked like I'd been on site for over an hour and hadn't yet ridden anything faster than the Night Garden boat ride so needed cheering up! Anyhow, fingers crossed for my next visit over ScareFest!

    They've been lining the bins in the queue as well, not sure men in suits want to use all the bins. It's got to be soon, very soon :)

    Has anyone who has been on park recently seen any men in suits or would this be done out of hours?

    Could that be gerst or HSE to remove the prohibition notice? If HSE re-opening will surely be next week some time.

    That's a good sign. Why would they line the bins if opening wasn't imminent?

    For HSE to bin the notice.
