Well just back from a day on park with Dean, Dan, Jamie and Vic and I have to say it's looking seriously good! As Thomas said, the sphere looks way better in the flesh. Two tesla coils have been erected on the lawn which are sure to look absolutely amazing on park at the weekend.
The park itself was pretty buy with queues reaching up to an hour on Air and Rita. A few things to note though:
> Rita didn't open until later in the day due to essential maintenance. We didn't stay around the area long but saw techs studying the track etc so unsure if it was a problem or it was just maintenance.
> Ripsaw had a long period of downtime this afternoon. There's something not quite sounding right on it at the moment. I don't think it's anything too major, since later in the afternoon we rode it 4 times with no hassle.
> ERT is Rita, Ug Swinger and Oblivion - It has not changed back to Nemesis etc. so beware you'll have a long walk if you use the woodland walk (as we did :P!). Since Rita was down first thing, Corkscrew was opened as an alternative.
We were lucky enough to catch the lights being tested on the Towers, and it looks fantastic. I have a picture but unfortunately I wasn't quick enough to catch it and only have one of spotlights shining on it. Still, looks very good though!
Some pictures of the day - sorry they're not brilliant - been playing with new camera and haven't quite found the right settings!The SphereSphere 2The Towers Lit UpTowers, Treats and Trails
This one's not Electric Towers related but just thought I'd mention that this, along with Adrenaline Week is being advertised big time across the park.
That's it for now, more photos tomorrow!
