A lifelong ban to the premise and legal action must have made it all worth it.

They have been given a 2 year ban from the park and it appears no legal action has been taken. :)

The park probably want to keep it as quiet as possible, hence the lack of legal action. It doesn't reflect well at all and will only encourage further idiots, who may not be so good at climbing and balancing ...

One thing they can take from it is to step up their security of the premises as it was quite outrageous how they got into the park easily and managed far too much before being noticed.

A problem though is you still! have Monk's Walk which needs better fences. It would be very easy to climb over it if you climbed up via the trees.

Perhaps. But then again, it's pretty much impossible to stop people ever getting in without ridiculous investments. Plus, even then, people could just go to the park for a normal day and then hide somewhere for a couple of hours, coming out late at night.

As for security around the park, it looked to me as though they got into the park, got straight to Stealth quickly and climbed it fast. They were spotted fairly quickly, but (as I understand it) by the time anyone got to Stealth they had got to the top and were on their way down. Short of having a security guard on virtually every ride, I can't see how they could have stopped this happening. They had plenty of security considering nothing happens on 99% of nights. There just coincidentally wasn't anyone at Stealth at the time.

An example of getting "outrageously far" would be them getting up and down stealth, then running to Saw and getting halfway up that before being noticed.

Was at Thorpe over the weekend and noticed a couple of small things. The closed toilets opposite Detonator have now opened and are quite fancy I must admit. Saw now has a RAP queue.

Also, the Wipeout attraction near Rush has now been removed and replaced with the Hang Man attraction that was near Nitrogenie

Oh and Timber Tug Boat was testing on Friday and I think also today.

^Not to be too negative or anything but seriously, how have they possibly not managed to get Timber Tug Boat and the other drop ride open yet? I find that really bad to say they've barely had to do anything with it or the area to get it installed
