Seems like a daft idea tho half the park looking like a construction site will hardly make the park look tidy for the new season.


It will still look better than it did last season. It could be classed as a theme.

No gates were closed so couldn't get in and look around.
On magnum you have to sit in the front seat and make sure your harness is very tight otherwise it hurts more than the alton corkscrew.
