UK park news said:...we learned that 2012 would see the installation of a new Drop Tower at Pleasurewood Hills. Rumoured to be a 196ft Fabbri Giant Drop at the time....
Although the park has confirmed that their planning application was successful (and remains valid) for a 60m tower installation, the new attraction is the 40m (131′) Fabbri “Mega Drop” version named “Jolly Roger” – which is presented with a loose pirate theme.
The ride hasn’t been purchased by the park, but is on long term lease and represents part of a three year/£3.5 m investment plan for the park. UK Park News has been informed by PWH that the intention is to purchase the larger tower at some point. It’s unclear why the original purchase did not transpire, however we have been advised that Jolly Roger will remain until then.
When you mentioned about the Enigma, I asked the question, so here's the answer:
The Enigma coaster is in it's second year of a 4 year plan worth £400K. Over the years Enigma has been modified and adapted to suit - This has left Enigma beyond true repair.
Last year the decision was taken to take Enigma back to it's glory day's and eventually have the ability to run 2 trains. The control panel and gear box have had to be totally replaced as the old ones had been modified. Next year Enigma will be fully repainted.
By the end of the 4 years (if nothing in the plan is changed!) Enigma should be back to being fully operational, with two trains and all authentic parts as it should have been.
The plan is to eventually relaunch Cannonball Express with theming in it's final year.
