    Rides that would be better without an element?

    I see what you mean. By the time it reaches that stage I’m ready for something big to finish it or for it just to end and it just seems a bit boring so I definitely agree Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    How often do established parks really add new rides?

    I think the word “established” can mean different things as well. A park might be established yet still want to do a series of investments to attract different audiences to create an all round park. Paultons Park is a great example of this: despite being established in the young family market...

    Yeah like that. That’s why there’s no application for TS, PPW or LK Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I’m literally having déjà vu right now. This is exactly what I was thinking with the cobra area! And I even thought about planning. I’m not sure what the planning position is right now but I know that they don’t need permission to build in most of the grounds. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Yes PPW stands for Peppa Pig World. The area was built in 2011 and the park built Lost Kingdom in 2016 to keep the same guests coming back. Therefore I think TS will be trying to do the same thing, as if you were 3 in 2011 you would be turning 12 next year and would be looking for something more...

    The fence in the picture at the top definitely reminded me of Paddington so I think this quite likely the IP if they go for one. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I see what you mean and your point is valid but I do still hope they use both modes otherwise it would be a bit of a waste. I think the intense mode should be for special events like when it’s dark. I think Paultons are going to do night events in the future as they’re installing permanent...

    The one problem they will need to address is that the different settings will likely carry different height restrictions so any changes in operations might be complicated Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    What is the wettest water ride you've ever been on?

    Thanks for clarifying this, it’s been a long time since I went to Florida and I was only 7 Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    What is the wettest water ride you've ever been on?

    I see what you mean but I found that I felt wetter overall on Valhalla. Although if it was based on a single drop then Tidal Wave would win as that splash is insane! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Good idea! It could link in with their Halloween event where they run it on the highest setting into the night. Talking of Halloween, has anyone been to Paultons Park’s event?

    I think they’ve bought this model as it can be flexible with catering for the future. It will give them the option to turn it into an intense ride if they develop the area behind TS into a thrill area. I think this has all been thought through as they’ve placed Cyclonator on the edge of the area...

    It’s incredible how well Paultons Park have been with the construction of these areas. They always leave plenty of time to complete the areas for opening and allow the vegetation to settle compared to many other UK theme parks (especially Merlin) who tend to finish late or only just on time...

    I think (subject to planning) it would be incredible if Paultons themed the cobra and edge section into a jungle theme with a rapids surrounding the area. Magma would be incorporated into it and you would cross a bridge over the rapids to access it from Lost Kingdom and the other side. The area...

    New tweet: This tweet doesn't really say too much we didn't know but it does suggest that the Rio Grande Train will keep its current name when it reopens but it will run through Tornado Springs and be incorporated into the area. Possibly they will move the station into the area around Junkyard...

    It’s worth noting that US Independence Day is 4th July which is a major public holiday there which is why it would make sense for the reveal to be then. Less than two weeks to go!
