Must have been done by Sparks creative services.

While I'm at it, here is an awesome creation (Professor Lightbulb animatronic) of someone who worked with Chessington including making Fizzy the Dog in the Bubbleworks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MipSNCKvQ4M

The scenery part of the ride was actually made by a company known as Rex Studios. Their website is not long online, not sure why. The ride was listed as one of their projects.

King Nemesis, looking at the video it just doesn't conjure much magic - but I had previously put this down to the fact its a video and I never rode it as a kid to have its magic cast in my nostalgia

There used to be a really catchy song throughout the ride "...in the tinkaboo factooorrrryy..." classic! My main memories from this ride were massive bars of rock and the smell of sweets was really strong!

Bet it's gone totally downhill now, like the rest of the park!
