Just come back from the towers today and noticed that in the old queue line for duel there has been trees cleared and the old fences that made up the winding route to the haunted house have been renewed.
I was worried for a moment... I thought you said removed
, rather than renewed.
Well, thank goodness, it looked like it had never been used for years last time I saw it. The "forgotten" atmosphere actually quite suited the Gloomy Wood theme and felt brilliant with the music and everything... But not so great when the fences wobble if you lean on them and large sections of the path closed off because of broken paving.
I queued there for ages in Scarefest 2009 and a little bit a year or so before that. On really busy days the queue does get long enough to extend back into the trees, but whether the ride hosts can be bothered to close the gates and reroute the queue to the other entrance is another matter...
