N:OC's building, themeing & CCL in general would lend itself perfectly to the world of Lazy Town A.K.A. Sporticus...

I think It would be a good choice to have something like Garfield dark Ride consider where Nickelodeon Outta control was which would be based on the ride in Kennywood Park in the US.

It would also be a good choice to have a Super Mario themed ride to consider where Beastie was if they sign the contract with Nintendo

Half of submission? Could swear the farthest half hasn't operated since the year of opening!
I'm not completely useless, I can be used as a bad example :P

Don't think I've ever seen it move, even with excessive queues.
I suppose once they've decided they wont use it, it takes a lot of effort and time to start operating it again.

Damn, you beat me to suggesting The Smiler!! lol

Submission's arm was working for the first few seasons, but there are MANY varying reasons as to why the other arm is not operational - ranging from cost vs benefit ratio not being high enough, the one arm requiring parts that are no longer manufactured, damaged beyond repair, staffing issues and most recently that there wasn't enough power in X-Sector to run it on full capacity (despite nothing having changed since it's installation AND the introduction of the new sub station - yet still no 2 arm operation)..

It's nice to see that we are struggling to find rides currently SBNO at Alton actually.. A few years ago, we'd have NO problem at all...
