    It will almost certainly be Blackpool to meet the usual suspects. @rob666 @Dipper_Dave @Rick

    Not sure who's round it is but I can categorically state with 100% confidence that it is not mine ;)

    Usually is.
    Dippy is another tyke, but I can usually rely on our Rick to stand his round, as another generous citizen of the County Palatine of Lancashire.
    Back on topic(ish), do we think we will be back in the parks for Easter?

    Personally, I don't. I think May is more likely tbf. We'll have to wait and see though.
    Although apparently the "stay at home" message could end next month so who knows!

    I don't envisage indoor areas of parks opening for a few months after the parks themselves do. April/May seems realistic for parks opening, depending on how the vaccine roll-out goes.

    I completely agree. People need to remember that when the parks do finally open some rides might not open straight away.

    It was pretty much the same with 2020, IIRC. It's hard to put an exact time frame on when indoor stuff will reopen, as a lot of it does depend on the vaccines. Plus, given lockdown fatigue is likely to get worse, it may not be overly responsible to open too much too soon, lest it give rise to an increase in coronavirus cases.

    I'm hoping to do Thorpe this year as I've also only been once. When was your last visit? Mine was in 2013. Didn't do any of the big coasters though as it was raining and I wasn't really into riding them back then anyway. Did ride Loggers Leap though, so will be strange going this year knowing it's gone. :(

    I did visit in 2020 at the end of summer but that was my only visit.
