Re: The little things that make the magic

The cold mornings walking through the park gate with the layer of mist over the lake and the towers themselves overlooking the daily mayhem. The music played around the park. Like Disneyland in England I always say lol The headstones that tell jokes in Haunted hollow The musical toilets in the farm ...

I feel like one of the reasons the haunted mansion works so well, is because the theming is amazing and the staff really do well in keeping in character. So I agree with the poster above; if the staff in duel were d...

Re: The Smiler - Construction Discussion

Has anyone seen a train go round since the 22nd May? I think you see that the builders have finished with just little bits and bobs to do now. Today it can be all out testing with maybe dueling as if they can't get that sorted I can see very long queues and angry guests. They've been doing night te...
