I need the cred but until I see it being constructed on site then I can't get even slightly excited. Obviously I'll go when/if it does reopen.
I'm quite surprised that this isn't generating more of a buzz on here, especially among some of our more <cough> mature members.
Even if the thing is in a bit of a state, just the fact that something is happening should be sending the 'Old Skools' into a bit of a tizz.
I for one am really rather excited by the prospect of a written-off Schwarz' coming back to life, especially on home turf. If it does actually reopen in 2018, could make for a vintage year in the UK coaster calendar.
Perhaps I'm extra excited because I don't have the cred. Funny story; I very nearly 'did a Griswald' trying to get this coaster. Was literally at the point of leaving the house, keys in hand, but decided to check the opening times online, just to be sure. Wait... Whaaaaat? Closed for good?? Was not a happy bunny.
Anyway, back on topic; Yay for Knightmare at Southport
The park's Facebook says that the Pinfari is now open, by the way:
Had a snoop round the outside of Camelot yesterday, Knightmare rotting nicely, absolutely no sign of anything changing, guard dog was nice though!
I just cannot see Knightmare going anywhere at all, let it rust in peace.
Nah, there's definitely track gone. Until the news of the refurbishment and then it turning up in Southport I had thought it was an attempt to stop people climbing up by removing the pieces that are easiest to reach.From my limited view, it looked like the whole ride was still fully standing.
I thought the exact same when looking at those photos.It’s always such a shame seeing pictures of Camelot, even though the park was a dump it a massive part of my childhood.
