The fact that people need to react positively to normal maintenance for it to continue is ridiculous and points to everything that is wrong with the current running of the division.
It's great that these things are finally getting done, but they still have a long way to go.
Though I remain skeptical RE: the Nemesis repaint. Unless it is an exact recreation of what was there before, I will be disapointed. The repaints so far (Splash Landings and the Ice Age fence, for example) have left much to be desired. You wouldn't paint over the Mona Lisa with a crude stick figure and expect people to be greatfull, would you?
IF this turns out to be true (not that I doubt you, old bean, just Merlin's ability to see anything though) Then nothing will make me happier. Throw in the return of the bloodfalls and there might even be hope.I am aware that the track is being painted to original 1994 specification.
the number of small to medium scaled refurbishment projects around the park is easily over 20
I do hope the Oblivion mist is one of these said 20! If I remember rightly the pipes have got blocked with limescale but surely there would be some way of getting sorted?
It's not quite the same looking into a dirty concrete hole!
I simply wish that opinions didn't seem to have be black or white. Either licking the boots at St. Peter's gate or throwing the dummy out and slagging them off some more.
It is of course diabolical that things got to where they did - that is exactly why I wrote to Nick Varney and Ian Crabbe twice last year about the state of things, to voice my concerns. The park has been left to rot for too long and it's shocking that it has come to this.
But finally, they seem to realise and if things are going to get better - then I think we can all have a pint to that.
Do you think if they had this programe in place years ago (and on going). The flat rides (ripsaw, submission??) would still be going today? I love what they are doing but it still feels like a knee jerk reaction to me.
