maybe it's sarah's whos wrong!!
Woah there! Sarah only reported what she has seen from her recci around the park. Sarah reported that the Missile was still standing but looking shabby and that the flume was still there and looked like it might have had a repaint. We also had a report some time ago that the third drop of the flume would be refurbished this season - this ties in well.
Is there any chance that you could get hold of theletter to scan in and either upload it somewhere? If webspace is a problem I'm sure someone could host it somewhere.My Two Cents:
This is my opinion and mine alone, you may not like this, but here goes:
1) Pirate Ship staying this year (previous rumours indicated it may be replaced),
2) RMT repaint/refurbishment complete (train last year, ride this),
3) Log Flume staying - looks to have been painted, and to remove would make RMT look odd in the 'mountain' alone,
4) From the evidence before me, I truly believe that Spaceport might be closed this season, or a good part of it.
Evidence for no. 4?
i) Rumours that Driving School was going and something was happening to the Go Karts,
ii) Missile looking shabby with no effort to repaint it,
iii) General cost-cutting in the park indicates that savings need to be made - why not save on retail, catering and rides by closing off an area. Starbase slide could easily be moved elsewhere in the park if required,
iv) Reports that the park is to become a family fun park - nothing wrong with that, but they won't need the Missile. It would also give space to develop new family rides away from residential areas.
Sorry folks, I hate to be a pessimist but that is how I see it. until the website is on line or leaflets available we won't know :-(
