It's hard because people would look at the Tikal model and just walk past it as it looks small and childish but they wouldn't realise Tikal gives better airtime than some full sized drop towers!
The problem I have, and I can see happening, is that people won't ride this stuff 'cos they'll recognise it's just old funfair tat and at the end of the season the park will say "see, people don't want flat rides". That's not entirely true then, is it?
Plus, it's just tacky.
Well even though the themed areas have completely gone out the window lol This is epic and the marketing is spot on! I can't help thinking they planned this for the anniversary year last year.We now have an official announcement from the park; the scheme is officially being referred to as The Retro Squad, with all 3 rides being given retro names and themes:
In terms of the rides announced; 3 have been announced as part of this, and they are:
For some reason, the Twist in The World of David Walliams doesn’t seem to be getting included...
- Funk’n’Fly - Super Trooper in Forbidden Valley.
- Mixtape - Smashing Jump in X-Sector.
- Roller Disco - Waltzer in Dark Forest.
What do you guys think of this?
Why can't we just wait and see what happens before we determine whether we think the flats are successful or not. It's not like we won't get a guage pretty quickly once the park reopens. Either they will have decent queues or they won't. But either way, I think they will get at least one permanent flat, simply due to capacity reasons, which we know Towers have clearly noticed at this point. That being said, I think the number of them we will see, and/or the cost/quality of the flats will increase if they do prove to be more successful than some of us are thinking.
TLDR; Literally none of us have a ****ing clue how successful these will be yet.
