    There is very little as it has been sanded off the wooden posts.

    Although they've done this and it's great they're keeping on top of it, it is very, very sad that people feel it necessary to deface anything they see. Says a lot about mentality of some stupid people towards other people's property.

    Why do people feel the need to graffiti. Really annoying after all the hard work put in by staff.

    Those that do are stupid and if they had a single brain cell between them they'd be dangerous.

    It's a certain mentality of person that takes a marker pen to a theme park.

    If only someone could invent a walk-through detector for pens. Pity they aren't made of metal. :(

    People have no consideration or respect now-a-days. I see it where ever I go.

    Indeed. Who remembers the Air queue line from 2002? Chewing gum and graffiti everywhere. I think they painted the fences black in the end to fight the marker pens.

    All you have to do is look at car parks everywhere, people couldn’t give a toss about damaging your car. Unfortunately it seems no different at theme parks, people in general have a total lack of respect for others and it’s not just the younger generations

    No the strobe is stupid, just an unnecessary flash in the face. The projection stuff was cool but totally broken these days. I just love watching the magnificent steel beast swooping overhead.

    I did notice from the documentary how bad the queue looks. I normally don't notice because I'm too busy looking up.
