    Maybe they will twist the cars round so the ride will be backwards?

    It's literally just a new theme. Confirmed on their Facebook.

    This is a surprise, the ride (what was left of it) looked in a dreadful state when I visited last year:

    Could this potentially be a new coaster on the site? As I'm not sure the old ride is really in a state fit for operation if the photos above are anything to go by; bits of track have even been removed!

    Steel Eel is getting a new colour scheme!

    I think it will look great with pink, or light/dark blue track too!

    From the same source as the coaster rumour, apparently the little monsters mischief mansion ride at Flamingo Land is being rebranded to a Peter Rabbit VR ride

    I first heard about the Peter Rabbit VR ride on Attractions near me website but with this 10 Inversion coaster, they might hold it off till 2020 maybe

    New clue off PWH about Rattlesnake, something about chickens and/or eggs?



    (link goes to page advertising 2019 season passes, nothing about ride)

    Coming from the park that named their sky ride "Merry Go Straight", I am not shocked about the possibility of this being themed to chickens.

    It's not like we've never seen a coaster themed to chickens before...

    I think that Pleasurewood Hills leaving their Zierer Tivoli SBNO for 3 years, selling off the main sculpture of the ride and tearing apart parts of the train and track only to announce a re-theme is kind of confusing. The ride might've been down for extended rehab, but still it almost feels to me like they were planning on selling/removing Rattlesnake but decided at the last minute to reopen it.

    The main reason they stopped operating the ride was due to local complaints about the noise, especially from Gunton Hall, the hotel/resort that is directly at the back of the coaster. I'm wondering if there has been some form of agreement between the two companies and that's why they've rebuilding it as a whole ride and opening it again.

    To be fair, some of those Tivolis are bloody loud!

    Just swap out the little steel wheels with some nice polyurethane ones and you'll be fine. :p
