Surely there are a bunch spare trains going at Universal Studios...?
Maybe that Twitter post is a hint at Merlin purchasing SeaWorld? Or at least the 2 Busch Gardens parks?
What Twitter post?
And why would they want to buy SeaWorld?
They've been saying this as a "motto" for years, just someone got bored and wanted to post something on twitter.
"we do believe that those assets (Busch Gardens) are interesting and we could certainly do a lot with them, particularly around accommodation.”
Yeah I'm aware of them rumours (I was at a Merlin park when I heard about them) but months past by and Merlin released a statement that they weren't interested in buying those assets as well as SeaWorld's CEO saying that SeaWorld is not being sold.
The way they're going it would be more appropriate for them to try and catch up with Premier Inn.
My general feeling was that they've lost a bit of interest in the resort parks (non-lego) and were mostly keen on expanding the midway and lego sections of the business (lego parks are in a different section to the non-lego parks), the last few years of acquisitions and openings suggest so. Could be wrong.
Nemesis is back to 2 train operation today, with one of them running without wheel covers (source ThemeParkWorldwide on Twitter)
Wickerman flame effects are currently sbno that took a long time...
Well that didn't take long.
Flames were already off on Sunday, but I thought it was just because it was due to weather.
The world's first rollercoaster to fuse wood and fire...... *as long as its a peak day and there are 6 billion people on park.
@Serena wins the sweepstake. @Mysterious Sue - What does she win?
I bet this time next year it won't have a baggage hold... And by this time the year after no pre-show
The effects aren't broken, It's just they get turned off every time it breaks down and it needs someone from management to reset the effects.
When I rode Wicker Man a couple of weeks back there were no fire effects in the morning but there were in the afternoon up until ride closure.
Well you know what they say. There's no smoke without fire.
That'll explain why they were never on on Sunday then as it broke down every hour... Needs management to reset them? Really!?!?
From an operations standpoint, it would be wiser to keep a broken effect off in order to get more people on the ride instead of having to go down so management can enter the ride area and reset the effects.
Most broken effects aren't fixed until Maintenance comes around the next day to do their daily inspections.
No, it is just that due to the cuts, and wastage of the last box, management are in charge of the box of matches.
