Re: Chessington - The Future

Scruffy Dog have shared this image of a new project, and for some reason it screams Dragons Falls to me. They also noted the name is recognisable which both Chessingtion and Dragons Falls are. It could be entirely unrelated but I wouldn't be surprised seeing as Dragons Falls is expected to have a refurb similar to Scorpion Express at some point...

Scruffy Dog have confirmed that the image is not related to Dragon Falls, nor any Merlin project for that matter.

What a shame! I was beginning to look forward to some sort of re-vamp of Dargon Falls! I guess it may still get one though a some point hopefully.

I'm so excited by this! I've done the forest segways at the GoApe located in Sherwood Forest, and it is fantastic! Really glad it's coming to chessie!

They also offer it at Go Ape Thetford, although I've never been there. It has been a while since I've been on a Segway, but when I go biking nearby, they always seem to be in use!

Just found a little video too!
