You don't pay for entry into a closed theme park and if your talking about the tours towers did then it was specifically said to all guests that they had to stay with the tour operator at all times and not to go in to the other areas as they were off limits due to maintenance.

By the looks of it these people have no permission to be there or to take the photos and looking even closely they have entered not only into the ride area, but then into the pump area of the tunnel which is extremely deep and dangerous and all without any life jacket or harness equipment.

And if the bypass is built the roads from there leading up to the park will still be the same as the only route open to this road is down the old railway line which is where this coach has crashed That's not correct.

Hmmmmmmm, for the staff to say it's your fault is terrible and unlike alot of the staff who work up there, the turntable stopping can throw people off balance so how can it be your fault, fill out the form and see what they say but to try and pin the blame on you is not fair and very unprofessional ...

I'm sorry but if you are sitting down in the boat then there's not chance you can fall out, for starters where you are sat is recessed into the boats so you are sat below the side. The only way you can fall out is standing up.
