It's a good thing they haven't mentioned the rides that are going to be possibly open on the map. Last year they had to close early due to reaching capacity a lot and I remember many angry comments on their facebook page from people who were either inside a packed park or turned away. It is better for them to set the expectation low and set out that only the zoo & sea life will be open and then anything else will be a bonus!

We only need a hard frost which could prevent some rides opening or a technical issues. TB and HP for sure will be open.  Shame no Bubbleworks

If they're using Mexican Cantina, they could at least open rattlesnake ;). I'll probably be going with my mum and the 2 year old she childminds. She could go in with them to do arts and crafts, whilst I went round on Rattlesnake.

I could do 50 @ 5 min queues = 250min or just over 4hrs and then give time to ride that's about right :P

It is pretty good! Especially in the dark for building up the atmosphere. Not sure if it beats The Mystery of Hocus Pocus Hall's music though! IMAscore did a damn good job of that!

Pretty cool :)

Has anyone else noticed that there are a lot of Festive Zoo Days scheduled for this year? 20 in December alone!

I'm pretty sure it was just last year there was a lack of Festive Zoo Days, and pretty much no actually Zoo days. This was because of the £5 million refurbishment. As well as Azteca and Amazu construction.

Precisely. The park were actually unsure of whether or not to open during Half Term week or not. Luckily they opted to. :)
