    Interesting concept, but does it risk having low re-ridability?

    So we know there will be no new long flume on the flume site ,catcf is looking favourable right now i would say. Any sign of anything at all in that area of the park? It looks dreadful imo.

    I say retheme the whole CCL back to a victorian Street but a more dark, Jack the ripper style Whitechapel area aimed at older children. Build a mainly dark ride log flume in the CaTCF building extending into coaster corner where the last drop would face towards where toadstool now sits. Could be themed around the victorian London underground and sewer system with a few jump scares, comical scenes etc

    Gut CATCF, use the fresh water supply there etc and give CCL a proper theme a bit older than CBoobies

    This would be a decent idea, if there weren't about 50 other dark themes that exist already at all the Merlin parks, No thanks. Definitely agree though about going back to a Victorian style theme, but I want it to be light hearted.

    They won't ever do a Jack the Ripper anything outside the London Dungeon. Remember the stink SJWs kicked up a couple of years ago when the JtR museum opened?

    Steampunk theme would be great to see, something that you can imagine working well at Towers.

    As far as I'm aware, the fume was because the museum was supposed to be, and given the go ahead originally on the understanding it would be, about celebrating important women in history, but instead ended up being about someone who murdered women. There was something about the location too but I can't remember the specifics.

    A Ripper themed flume would be great imo, but only in London, doubt it'd work in the middle of Staffordshire.

    Use the idea from those old jazz land concepts. Dark ride plus a water splash outside. Costs would be lower due to using the Charlie building for the dark ride section and have the outside part utilising part of coaster corner.

    Did I miss something? Jazzland as in Six Flags New Orleans, or something different?

    Jazzland was supposedly a planned major redevelopment of Cred Street, involving the extension of the Toyland Tours warehouse, multiple new attractions, shows and a water ride/dark ride with a drop crossing over into coaster corner.

    The project was only ever confirmed by TowersTimes and plans were released online, most people believed at the time (2004ish) that it was made up by some enthusiasts. Towers never confirmed the existence of the project.

    The lines between parody and reality are regularly blurred when it comes to Towers so anything is possible.
