I reckon Samurai will be gone for the end of the year, the ride just needs more work doing to it than necessary. If we look at the last few years, there has been a lot of major breakdowns, they've tried to fix problems and it's always gone down for a extended period of time. When it is working, even on a long cycle it is dire for a top scan, whether that's due to problems with the ride itself, or just how Thorpe operate it I don't know, but I'm a massive Top Scan fan, and even I don't really like Samurai. By now it'd probably be better to get a brand new top scan
A saw trap theme could work brilliantly! I do think this year is the last for Samurai though.
