    CF Lives 2023... and beyond

    Icon Park - Drop Tower Accident 24/03/2022

    I didn’t think it would be long before we saw currently installed attractions retrofitted - in fact, I would be shocked if these were not added, as they have no choice but to be proactive.

    @Sandman - this is the main reason I’ve been avoiding going recently, but I’ve told myself I need to make a conservative this year to tick a few things off and then I don’t need to worry till nemesis is sorted / something new and noteworthy needs my attention. @Nicky Borrill - I’m aiming for...
