    2015, shows how long since I’ve been there and I live literally 5mins down the bypass from it.

    I reckon you should revisit once the log flume reopens, if you go in expecting a world class park you're bound to be dissapointed, but for a cheap park, you could definitely do worse. A lot of painting has been done recently too.

    Pleasurewood Hills reopened on Saturday, Reliability was mostly good. Although the Fireball and Jolly Rodger Drop tower were both out of action for Maintence. Most staff members wearing masks, reliability was good with Cannonball opening about a hour late and one small down time in the afternoon. Social distancing is in force on all rides, I noted the coasters were leaving a row between groups. Markers in the queue lines, and staff cleaning restraints and other high touch surfaces on a regular basis. The Water Fun Factory log flume building is looking good and the new entrance provides a nicer welcome to the park.

    Yes, this and the Lake End revamp last year has really seen PWH step up a level!

    Good on Pleasurewood. Looking forward to getting back there. They do seem to have a good thing going at the moment, ensuring that the park is looking smart - adding some charm as they go. I was almost certain we'd never see Cannonball run again - great effort there.

    That said, it feels like you need both the charm and the attractions - it's not either or, it's both. Will be interesting to see how things evolve on that front too.

    Looking forward to visiting next month, visited a very long time ago in the late 80s and can't remember a thing about the place.
