I can't view earlier in the conversation but I'm confident this is in regards to Oblivion.

On ridetimes.co.uk, family and thrill have been swapped around. I might be overthinking this, but it will have been done for a reason. Perhaps AT want more of a family friendly approach to the whole thing after the smiler incident? I suppose with the investment of sw8 and it being a woodie/hybrid and a possible 1.2 m height restriction?

Maybe not fully kiddie type park like Chessington, nor like fully thrills like thorpe, more in between and appealing for all ages.

(Probably overthinking it ;))

They've been making many a mistake with ridetimes recently so it's probably maybe nothing

Easter comes extremely early in 2016 though (27th March) so it may be Saturday 12th March for opening day.

(In 2013 Easter was 31st March & park opened Sat 16th March, easter is even earlier than that next year!)

The park is open for the forces only on the 13th and 18th which would suggest that the season may start on the 19th, the invite states air will be closed so it may reopen late in 2016 following the 'upgrade'.

That's weird. I wonder why...
Ride count since the beginning of 2015: 1770!
Ride count 2019: 618!
Cred count: 88!
