The Next Themed Area or Area Refurbishment

Thu Dec 06, 2018 3:35 pm

Just came to my attention, what does everyone think will be the next refurb of a current area or even a new area altogether?

I think the most likely/most logical area to refurb/retheme will be Cloud Cuckoo Land. With the Dungeons coming in 2019, I would really like to the see this part of the park restored and made to look good again. It's going to be getting a lot more visitors in that section of the park so they really need to make that area look vibrant and attractive again like it once was. If Twirling Toadstools made a return; even better imo.

Yeah, I think CCL will go in 2019. They'll stop access through Scarefest then the first teasers will come then and the full announcement in January 2020.

CCL is the most likely to next undergo work. Its been a while since it received any real love, so it would be nice to see the area get a revamp. But after that, I feel, much to my hatred of saying this, will be Katanga Canyon. I adore the area to bits, but its look old and needs so new life brought to the area.

Cloud Cuckoo Land I think we’re all in agreement with - it’s the one area of the park that lacks a standout/signature attraction (unless you count HoM which is seasonal). This will obviously change this year with the Dungeons going in nearby, but I don’t expect the area as a whole to remain the same once that’s open because having them both next to each other would be like Danzig playing at a school disco if you get what I mean. 

I think a Tudor/Victorian themed old English style street would compliment the Dungeons perfectly, if it was up to me that’s probably what I’d go with.

Hopefully it's just some TLC and freshing up of the area and maybe a new attraction rather than a retheme of Katanga Canyon, the area holds too much memories for me.
Reassess your modern lives and ignite your senses.

When it opened as Talbot Street that’s exactly the theme it had, a Victorian Street complete with undertaker! I’d like to see some sort of return to this too, but it really does need some more attractions. It’s a dead area of the park with a fair amount of space. The theatre is unused, as is Outta Control. What used to be Wobble World is also just a glorified rain shelter. The Dungeons’ arrival to the park isn’t a popular one, but hopefully it can breathe some life into the corner of the park.

It wouldn't surprise me if Cloud Cuckoo Land was closed throughout 2019 with the area boarded off with signs saying area under redevelopment.

Gallopers Carousel relocated to Fountain square, Driving school closed and Frog hopper removed due to the replacement in CBeebies Land.

I have a few questions/comments:

1. Is there any chance they would move the Dark Forest entrance so that Burger Kitchen and the Dungeons are separate from a kid friendly area? It seems a bit of a waste to completely change the area from a kid area to another “scary” themed area when they didn’t revamp the Driving School too long ago

2. I wasn’t born when it was there so my knowledge is very limited, but could they open up more into the area behind the CATCF building (like where Doom & Sons was) in order to make another area completely? I understand when Toyland Tours was demolished they made the CATCF bigger, but how much room would remain from that area used years ago?

3. Could they theme the area around the Dungeons, Burger Kitchen and Skyride to match the Towers theme and make them an area?

I’m aware that these don’t make much sense but I’m just curious.

Wobbleworld now has house of monsters in it. As for the theatre/ outta control you do have quite a bit of space there and I was looking at it the other day and i think you might be able to squeeze a dark ride in there somehow or another type of attraction. It would be nice if we could have house of monsters open year round though as I think that would be a good addition to the line up currently at the resort but then it might lose some of the charm. I quite like the idea of being back Talbot street though and the House of Monsters has a good cast of characters in so they could easily expand on them and use them to theme the area if they wanted too, I highly doubt this will happen at all but hey I quite like the idea.
