Having spent a substantial amount of money last week at the resort I find myself wanting to drop everything and do my best to make the 250 miles trip to be there but something in my head tells me not to bother. I had a lengthy chat to the higher powers at Towers and Merlin on the phone this afternoon, I now know it will open as soon as it's ready so as to not upset anymore guests. That means that the ones that love the buzz of the opening day will have to suffer.
For the bigger picture I can see they are right to do this but that goes no way to compensate the likes of me and others that wanted to be among the first to ride, paid good money and stored faith in the resort to deliver.
I'm off now to call watchdog and throw my thoughts into the mix.

*UPDATE* spoken to one of the senior people in suit who left the shop if it'll open tomorrow. She said with a cheeky smile "ooo not sure. You'll have to check the website"
Confirmation of opening tomorrow???

We don't need 100's of posts saying things like "ooo I hope there will be a soft opening later", or "I agree, I hope so too!", nor do we need multiple requests for images, one will do. These things do not contribute to discussion, and make the topic extremely difficult to follow.
I will start indiscriminately removing these types of posts from this moment on.
Can we all make sure that what we're posting really needs to be said, before doing so. It would help a lot, thanks

I was told that there may be things to still be done in the areas we cannot see and to wait for an official announcement from their website and social media.
I really want this to be open ASAP but greedily want to be around when it does. This does not make me 'negative' by a long shot. If it does open tomorrow then fair play and whoever is among the first to ride spare me a thought as I will be bleeding inside

Also thanks to the guys taking photo's at the park. Very much appreciated
Probably should be fine, nearly all schools will be back then and most on study leave will be back into the second exam period.
I have an English Language test the day you'll be on that beast jammy sod!
I'll post a review for you. Lol well hopefully queue lines will be tolerable then.
Best of luck with your test.

POV should be done with a go pro or something something small and compact that is hand held
