Slap a QR code on it and put it on the app and see how many people can find them all.

#5, staff walking to the break room across the road next to Oblivion, usually lighting up.
THC selectively targets and destroys tumor cells while leaving healthy cells unscathed. Conventional chemotherapy drugs, by contrast, are highly toxic; they indiscriminately damage the brain and body.

Toke up...

I saw them between gloomy wood and Forbidden Valley and also IN forbidden Valley. Nothing quite like being in this terrifying alien world and then you see a CAT. I'm assuming they don't get fed much, if at all so they probably live of rats/mice/spiders and stuff...Maybe they fish from the lakes. I'm surprised they didn't move to Mutiny Bay.

This is one of them and the others I saw looked like this too.

Yeah they hang out there.
I wanted to hug the s*** out of them but they are a bit weary.

From a few years ago when they had a kitten (actually looks like the same cat)

-The house is also something to look out for! I think newer fans haven't seen it.

That would be Ripsaw the cat  :)

I haven't seen it for myself, but there's apparently some old Thunder Looper scenery still in the Blade pit.

Open gates leading onto roller-coaster track... ;) spotted 3 times before. Everyone makes mistakes, but if you do ever spot this, as it probably happens more than we realise inform a member of staff immediately! You could save someone's life.

A fire exit being left open in Duel or someone having the one in the station open cause they fancied some fresh air.
