I hope they do something about the draining near the base of the marmaliser because that looks very wet from the inoculater.


There are drains there already. They were laid into the concrete

Well then it looks like the drains aren't working because that is one mighty puddle.
In just 1 day I managed: 75 rides on stealth, 8 swarms, the dodgems and a tea cups. February half term was good.

They've had pressure washers out in some areas, perhaps the drains are a bit clogged with mud right now?  I'm sure it'll all be taken care of.

drains were fitted which was probably why oblivion mist was off for a while, so that they could hook up the drains its possible that dirt from the track above has fallen in the drains clogging them.

I agree here, they're for stopping the train falling too fast, that much were agreed on at least

Guys, do you think they will do anything to that hole? It seems like it will be left like the air tunnel. :(

I don't see any reason why they can't, however have they finished assembling the trains yet?

So basically all they have to do left now before the ride opens is finish off groundworks, finish the station and theming and what else...?

Have they finished the fencing? Can't commence testing until there is a barrier between the workforce and the track (though they may test things such as the lift hills) :)

It was completed a while ago. That's the finished look.

... That sucks a bit. I was hoping there'd be something covering the joints on top of the thing.

Why dos the marmeliser look slightly differant than it dos on the sun newspapper photo. It seems to have more wires and differant feet to the legs on the photo. I thought they where suppost to go with the complete plan?
its always good to go to the dentist so you can get a better smile :D
