ah just the usual;^Elaborate?
if you don't like it and say your piece you'll be hounded for having a hint of a possibility of being slightly controversial, and for being a 'hypocrite' for the fact that you criticise the park but will inevitably visit anyway;
but at the same time if you say you like them you'll be eaten up for allowing merlin to get away with putting literal temporary fairground rides in the site of what was once one of the best flats in Europe.
Had a couple convos with friends and the general consensus is ew, but they might eat up some crowds. But will they actually? If I wanna go on fairground rides, I go to the fair. They are just temporary. Are they really? I wouldn't be surprised that if they do well, they'll be kept on in their already sorry looking state.
I think the situation is very forced, but entirely the park operators doing. Of course its unprecedented, but if there had been generally better investment and management beforehand as has been seen in the likes of Paulton's, and many parks across Europe and the world, the situation we have here would never need to be resorted to.
For me personally, I find it a little bit heartbreaking that this was approved. Totally flabbergasted that whoever's decision it was to trouble-shoot potential over crowding and long queues was to literally hire fair ground rides to dot about a THEMEpark. How that can ever be approved in one of the UKs most prestigious leisure destinations is beyond me. Grade 1 listed Victorian gardens & protected sight lines to a f***ing waltzer. Cheers.
