Filth outside the tavern?? Should call @Craig on you!
I heard from my cousins neighbours aunts dogs groomers dads hairdresser that we are getting more worlds first benches!
Nah, that's pie in the sky stuff. Now if it was your cousins neighbours aunts dogs groomers mums hairdresser, I'd have believed you
Closed season or not, back on topic now please
I'd expect Wicker Man to have a fair bit of work done over closed season. Wonder if it'll be even smoother next year?
i expect the track to grow some moss over closed season - will be a nice addition
Personally I'm wondering how long it will be until the heavy maintenance sections of track are modified to use GCI hybrid track they announced this year (or was it last year?) [https://greatcoasters.com/steel-track] since I pretty sure the trains are compatible and the track can be mixed and matched.
Only down side, it would probably make some sections way too smooth. What I love about Wicker Man is the feeling of out of control as the train tries to escape the rails. Having it all smooth would just ruin the ride in my personal view. I also think that my ride in October was smooth enough.
I will add, that I do believe that one of the trains is not set up perfectly since I've have good and bad rides in the same day. Just wish I knew of any markers on the trains to identify which one to the 3 it is to confirm my suspicions or prove I'm talking out of my arse .
I'm sure the trains are numbered 1, 2 or 3 on the front or back on the chassis I think, can't remember which
As mentioned above Coaster Touring who is usually very reliable has said that Wickerman is being re-tracked in places using the new iron wood system
Ironwood is more well known over here as hardwood...there is no Iron!
There are lots of species trees that are known as Ironwood, I think any hardwood that sinks in water can be called ironwood.
what inversion rumours?
The latest random unsourced and unsubstantiated social media ones of course.
Probably coming from the same place as the cross valley B&M hyper "rumours" - Broadmoor
