To me it looks exactly the same as Bubbleworks with some foam, ducks and sign writing in places.

It could've been a lot worse. Personally, I wasn't bothered about this retheme, I don't seem to be quite as attached to it as some people are, but its definitely not been just, erm, 'duckified', its just been brightened up a bit and kept its kiddie/family fun style. I'm fairly confident it'll turn out okay.

i think all they are going to do is change the colour and puts some ducks around the place and they will be imperal leather all around the place! :x

The colour is bad its a mixture of bad colours its still the old colour with added colours which just make it look wrong.

I've never been to Chessington, let alone on Bubbleworks, but it doesn't look too bad to be honest. :lol:

Just because a ride is endorsed by a big company, doesnt mean we will buy their products! Thats what TV adverts are for, not theme parks! :evil:

But it's publicity, isn't it - thousands of people will see that brand name every day at Chessington - it's really effective for getting the name out there. I should imagine it will heftily increase sales, that's why it would cost so much to sponsor a ride. :)

I only went on Bubbleworks a matter of two or three times, but I can see why people really loved it. I don't think the ride experience is really going to change that much, which is good! I'll be interested to see how it's different.

It will be better then the Tidal sponsorship. For a start bubbleworks won't have the Cussons Imperial leather plastsered over every nook and cranny of the ride. the sponsorship will be there, but not in your face.

A Video of the new Bubbleworks has appeared online. What was Chessington thinking thats all I can say its a disaster :x :x :x. Theres been alot of comments around forums about the new Bubble works and none are good.

Arrrg! the ducks are coming. Now I believe Duckman! In the video I thought that it looked a bit sinister rather than inviting and fun. The atmosphere has just been completely wrecked by rubber ducks. When will Tussaud's learn that ducks are not the answer

Argh is horrible, especially all the quacks in the soundtrack. The ducks blatently ruin it, pretty much a half arsed attemt at a better Bubbleworks. This ride would have been better without sponsership.

Chessingtons' really got the short straw this season. That's horrid, it's like a really long flume tunnel.

Anyone go to the annual pass day today? If so please tell us all how the not so popolicous Bubbleworks is?

I'v read a few reports about it and my god it doesn't sound pretty from what everyone raved as a great ride.

If i'm there this season, i'll be gutted that i'm riding the aftermath of a once called good ride.

Edit: this edit has a point
