Rumba Rapids alongside Rush will remain closed for the rest of the season and will reopen in 2018. This will bring the amount of closed attractions at Fright Nights to 4.

I don't get why they would shut the rapids so randomly without notice? Guessing its to cut down costs on staff, but it seems silly having it shut for fright nights as its probably the best water ride out of the lot to go on at night (you don't really want to get wet at night). 

Could they be renovating it or something? It seems so dull and pointless at the moment 

Also I noticed one of the flood lights right on top of slammer on the other day, is that normal? 

Feels like at this rate thorpe park will have more SBNO rides than operating ones.

If I remember correctly there was talk that Rumba was set for an overhaul for next year, so that may be way!

An Overhaul as in retheme like Dragon Falls is going under or overhaul as in refurb like Hex went under? I wouldn't think a retheme is too likely as Merlin wouldn't want it to clash wit Tiger Falls. However refurbs are nice when you have done to the standard of Hex and AT's Driving School. 

Also wasn't it mentioned in the Project 2020 thread that Thorpe was taking a year out for general improvements could 2018 be the year as we haven't seen any planning app or rumours of something new for Thorpe.

It was mentioned at the SouthParks Summer Sizzler event. Some areas of TP are looking rather unloved so it would be really great if they could just refresh some areas. I think it will be more TLC style as opposed to Dragon Falls overhaul. I hope they really use the year out to their advantage.

Does anybody know if the Kelloggs or Cadbury 2for1 vouchers are valid for use during fright nights? As I'm hoping to go on the 1st October, and don't want to turn up just to be turned away.

All the Terms & Conditions say is that October 20th to 31st the vouchers cannot be used. You should be fine on the 1st as it doesn't say anything about fright nights at all.

(This is for cadbury)
