Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

Rita's name is the perfect example of their whole ethos for the last few years - a short term punch to get in your face. Then let's step back a bit - we're all very used to it named Rita - but think about how utterly ridiculous it is! It sounds tackier than blutack. Plus it's not much of a brand its...

Re: 2010: Secret Weapon 6

They will change Rita's name if they have any sense, plus the whole ride should feel and look very different if they theme the area imaginatively.

Re: 2009: Cred Street Re-Theme, Skyride Refurbishment & Shows

Disneyland has an area for Children (Fantasyland), so does Europa-Park (Kinderland) andThorpe Park (Octopus' Garden - although a bad example I feel). Also so does Alton Towers (Cred St. and Farm) and Blackpool (Beaver Creek), along with Phantasialand (Wupe and Wooziland)... You mistake Fantasyland ...

Florida's is actually grey, and Tokyo's brown btw.

Re: VAT Reduction ?

LOL, just wait for what lies beyond the horizon! A likely inscrease in VAT in 2011 to 22.5% to start to pay off this huge build up of debt.

Re: 2009: Cred Street Re-Theme, Skyride Refurbishment & Shows

The rides in Cred Street (Waveswinger, Frog Hopper (hopefully a re-themed Frog Hopper), Carousel, Driving School and Play Area) are fine for a child-orientated area. But a decent family coaster would be the next step. If Coaster Corner can't be used for a major coaster, surely a YoungSTAR would be ...

Re: Fireworks at Dubai Hotel

Kaz, its not the point. The fundamental point is that it actually has a selling point, thats why people go there. All the rich and glamours hotels as such, despite its culutreless-ness it has a unique selling point which attracts its visitors. People wanting to escape from real life may not want to...

Mushroom - how original - they had to look realllllly far to think of that theme for a Wave Swinger didn't they. :roll:

Hopefully they won't miss the second opportunity to add water jets to it.

Re: No closed season next year

There is no way on Earth that all year openings at any of the ex-Tussauds parks are viable, and they won't be for a several years (and even that would take a lot of work and the mind of a visionary).

Re: Goodbye Ug Land and Cred Street!

The theme in both of these areas is terrible, so there is a huge opportunity to make a fresh start here. Let's hope the proximity to the Towers is taken into consideration this time.
