    I'm sure there will be, its just a matter of time, once the weather sorts itself out and there are a few more positive reports about the smiler re-opening the footfall should rise

    I think most people have already made up their mind about the smiler, with regards to riding it or not, before it reopened and what with the amount of other rides being sbno or gone and food outlets being shut it doesn't really give a great impression of the park.

    They're going to have to rely on Galactica and the fact that they've started this TLC to draw the crowds in

    Ripsaw was on its last knees, it sounded awful. It needed removing (well replacing!)

    Well at least Ripsaw will live on, as a parts doner.

    Feels a shame for Towers to have so few flats now. I know they aren't as essential as coasters and dark rides these days but parks still need a few of them to dampen queues.

    A nice modern topspin like Talocan would be perfect, although unlikely.

    Yes, you are quite right. The other spelling goes infront of kebab.

    Me too - unless I was making some abstract, subconcious point about Ripsaw resembling a kebab.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Towers have already scrapped the sculpted screw section in the middle. Shame it would have made a great sculpture in Forbidden Valley with a great little reminder of Ripsaw when people visit years later.
    It's little things like that which the fans would appreciate and just enrich the park in general having historical artefacts hidden / reused.
