    WTF Merlin?

    You are exactly right - and this was my thoughts exactly. As theme park enthusiasts, we see it a bit differently to Joe public or the business perspective. In my local area - a retail park had a small Aldi. They then built a larger premises as part of its expansion for Lidl. Aldi then 3 months...

    Accident on Splash Canyon

    Teacher here - in my experience, the pupils are told to stay in groups and are left to go around the parks / resorts themselves. There are specific meeting points around the parks that they 'check-in' with. Some groups of children generally have an teaching assistant with them for most of it...

    M&D's Theme Park goes into Administration

    From a business perspective - it is important to point out that M&D's went into administration. Entering this process means no money is in the bank so as @Bentleya said, not really an option.

    A write up for bookings next year states "In addition there is a great choice of junior and family rides including the Lost River 4D cinema ride." Anyone got an idea what this is?

    Could Merlin have been in touch regarding the use of their coaster in promotional material and that has resulted in signs/posters being removed?
