I can answer the 1st and 2nd point lol No and No Its a shame because like i have said before there is a good basis for a decent park to grow out of what is there at the moment. If they replaced the pirate ship with a drop tower (no height issue there!) they could theme it as a totem pole or something

I wouldn't get your hopes up for an answer either, they are highly stuck up when asked about park information, especially future developments. Or, you could just get an email asking you where you got the authority to take pictures, or get permission to put them online!! :evil: :evil: Okay, maybe th...

A ride like storm runner would be an excellent addition to the park, Its a shame that it wont be that kind of ride though. Something like a standup top hat would be excellent, Storm runner is only 150 ft high so if positioned correctly AT could have one in Ug Land

I read them throughout the day, I was very impressed that you could talk about this park for so long. I love this little park, I have been going since 1988 when it was awesome. Although there has been a lack of investment over the last few years i do think the park is slowly regaining some pride. Th...

I have read the whole of this topic (22 pages!!!)
