    Just a wee roundup on things at the park... From the park Facebook and Unofficial Pleasurewood

    The Railway Tea Rooms have been renamed in honour of the lady who has run them for well over a decade:

    The 2013 park leaflet with new art style has been released:

    Some very scary promotional art for Hobs Pit has been released:

    Woody's Fairytale Ride is all but gone...

    Hob's Pit exterior and interior:

    A promo video:

    Oh, and a bit of a name drop as to some people who are working on the ride...

    [hr]

    So, pretty damn exciting times for such a small park... The Park Q&A Thread on Unofficial Pleasurewood is where a lot of this info has come from, and allows fans to directly ask the park what's going on...

    The Hobs Pit video is a bit strange, but it is great always for smaller parks to be investing and moving forward, always refreshing to encounter.

    As for naming the tea room after that lady, that's a wonderful gesture!

    Is Hobb's Pit where the Aladdin dark ride used to be? Or is it a completely new build?

    The Aladdin boat ride is still there as Tales of the Coast. This ride is where the Gift Shop and old Fairytale Fantasy dark ride were located on Main Street.

    I was really expecting a jump scare at the end of that video!

    More news from the park... Firstly, an e-mail shot send out today advertising Hobs Pit and the www.hobs-pit.com website - which is really fantastic stuff:

    Also, in an exclusive bit of news for Unofficial Pleasurewood, this year's Halloween event has officially been named:

    I'm sure it was Pleasurewood Chills last year?

    The event was officially "The Hills Have Eyes" though they may have used Pleasurewood Chills as an alternative slogan. The logo wasn't redesigned (thus the park wasn't renamed like Frightwater Valley) for the event though.

    Has it been clarified what Hob's Pit actually is yet?

    Re: Pleasurewood Hills 2013: Hobs Pit Dark Ride / Pleasurewood Chills!

    Hobs Pit is currently a bit of a mystery to be honest! It's known to be using the old Fairytale Fantasy ride (though how much the ride system and cars have changed is unknown) as well as what used to be the Main Street shop plus the space inbetween the two. It can only be speculated that it will be part walkthrough/scaremaze and part 'ghost train' but from the teases it looks set to be great.

    Hi Chaps.

    I should be off to PWH for the first time in 3 years tomorrow. Will be sure to provide a Trip Report when I get back. Really looking forward to seeing how the park is doing and riding the Jolly Rodger for the first time. Shame that Hobb's Pit won't be open. Will probably go back later in the year if the reviews are good.
