What they should have done is go for an almost relaunch where they improved their existing rides and added some new ones. A couple of high quality dark rides and some good flats to be added in areas such as X sector and The Dark Forest and then the Air retheme + restaurant along with the smiler reopening would have made for a good reopening of sorts to make people come back as the resort would be bigger and better. The poor attendance this year would have been a good time to do it as there was less people on the resort and areas could have been closed

HSE are only concerned with the smiler, seeing as it injured people, all the other rides have been signed off prior to opening, so to HSE their job is done.
Towers Loving Care wrote:..in 2016 we will introduce ‘Towers Loving Care’, our experience improvement scheme which is all about sprinkling extra sparkle and shine on the Resort. From repainting whole areas of the Theme Park, relaying pathways and improving signage, to complete redesigns or refurbishment of attractions.
Over the next 3 years, it is our desire to bring you new and exciting attractions for all ages, develop our accommodation offering and to ensure that the existing areas of the Resort continue to feel our love. As part of this scheme you will see changes to our line up in 2016 but we’ll bring you more news of this in January.
