Since when were the seats sponsored by McDonalds?
Unfortunately I couldn't get a good photograph of it using my phone but today I saw these workers on a ladder there installing what looks to me like a camera angled at the first launch? Could this be the on ride photo point? If not what is it?
They tested with one train a few times today. And at one point were testing the tunnel mist again. Looks very good. Looking forward to riding it some day soon!
That’s completely untrue because the one visit I was there in the school holidays the park was packed with almost all rides running at full capacity and still having long queues.
I've been 5 times this season, all during weekends or school holidays, dead every day. I can only speak from personal experience given that the park do not have a queue time monitoring system. Granted, the weather hasn't been great, but it was only horrendous on one of the days.
The fact that the park reduced opening hours by one or even two hours for almost the whole of the school holidays also suggests that attendance is not what they were expecting.
Apparently the shop will be open within the next couple of weeks.
Five days does not make a fair assessment.
Due to Icon watching, I'm up to about a dozen visits this season.
If it was sunny...the park was busy.
If it was wet...the park was quiet.
If it was in between, the park was steady.
The weather has been poor overall so far this season, so the park has been reasonably quiet.
Same as always.
No change is sexy...to quote jah wobble.
True, 5 days is not a lot, but 14 days of reduced hours is a lot
Announcing that they might be announcing the opening date...
(but looks like 20-something (25th?) May - as expected - under those Icon icons)
Uhhh, another long month to wait.
That didn't take long...
I don't think she could help herself.
Btw the 25th is a Friday.
Indeed, she had a bit of a twitterjaculation...
(then the one I posted above)
and then finally one with the correct image...
There is also this:-
She didn't even get the year right on this one:-
Anyway, the Icon daggers have been removed from the post:-
It's opening on the 25th of May.
Is it opening on the 25th May?
Officially yes, but soft openings have been much rumoured for after the first May bank holiday.
Nothing confirmed however.
They will want it open as soon as possible to rake in the pennies though.
No, what makes you say that?
Like a rider on the Steeplechase, I’ve got a hunch.
Press will be the Wednesday (with potential soft openings until the Friday). I'll be going on the Friday. YAY.
Yaaaas, I was hoping for a late May opening. Will be going a week later on 31/05, but still within May half term. FUN TIMES!1
Bum. I'm away camping that weekend and I don't fancy half term queues. Will whore this after my US trip.
