    How old are the dodgems now? I suppose as they get older they must be harder to maintain?

    Wait...they're gonna have two sets of dodgems? Are the other ones so popular they need a duplicate to manage the crowds?

    No.

    The others are really crap fairground style ones that have been there for decades however. Wouldn't be surprised if they go soon.

    This was on the PWH facebook page earlier:
    We have the biggest crane you've ever seen at PWH today, but I wonder what it could be doing? An early Christmas present perhaps? #WoodyMagic

    Unofficial PWH note that it could potentially swing around to Tales of the coast from that position.

    They can't have seen many cranes.

    If the owners of Knightmare hadn't wanted so much for it they would have it by now!

    We have any clues to what it could be?

    Looks like they're doing work on the old 'Tales of the Coast' dark ride. Which was terrible.

    I like Tales of the Coast, just throughout that was a massive issue, it has, what, 3 boats going round?

    Wow! That's just ridiculous, when I went last year the queue exceeded 30 mins and nearly other ride was walk on, except Hob's Pit.

    It was running two or three boats when I was there in May, took about 20 minutes to process a queue of no more than fifteen people!
    The concept had potential but the entire ride and building was in a dreadful state.

    It's a recurring problem at a lot of these small parks. If 75% of the time there's no demand for higher capacity then they won't bother adding more vehicles to the rides even if that means that the remaining 25% of the time results in slow moving queues.

    Update: It turns out they've decided to replace a water/dark ride which worked well with....

    A 23 year old Wave Swinger. Yes. A wave swinger. Words cannot sum up how annoying and frustrating this is after the years where we saw a drop tower, a dark ride and a coaster installed. Safe to say I won't be returning this year.

    Posting teasers for a Wave Swinger is a waste of marketing money. I'm sure they already have one as well?
