The Eiffel Tower's looking a bit worse for wear, maybe we should plonk a 6 foot statue of the Green Giant at the base and vinyl wrap the whole tower in a fetching sweetcorn related design, maybe the lifts can play "ho ho ho, Green Giant" as you approach the top?...the Green Giant's tall like the Eiffel Tower isn't he?
Sorry, just thought I'd point that out.
But overall, I agree, I don't like the retheme. It certainly looks newer but not necissarily better. I personally find that the new red and blue colours are much more garish than the previous colour scheme and the whole Sonic theme is just unecissary.
Sometimes ride sponsorships can work and be unobtrusive such as Air with Miniature Heroes. This is just in-your-face advertising. I don't want to pay £30+ to get in a park and then have brand names rubbed in my face. It's supposed to be an immersive experience that takes you away from such things. Very poor form from an operator like Merlin
