I've only ever done the attraction three times, once on its media night, once later on in its debut season, and then a couple of years later. Whilst it did have very good interior theming, and there was a clear effort to keep the trials up to date and fresh, for me it never quite worked. It also just always seemed a little odd to have an attraction which used an IP that had its peak interest during the Resort's closed season! That being said, if nothing else opens at the Resort this year, I think it wil be missed, if purely for its ability to hold a good 30-60 minute queue at peak times and therefore help reduce the queue times elsewhere.
What does seem a little strange is that if indeed the attraction has left the Resort (remembering that at this stage its departure is pure speculation based on the ride page on the website being removed - nothing official has been announced), it seems as though the decision has been made relitively recently with a job posting for an Entertainments Host at Thorpe Park on the Merlin Jobs site
, posted on 21st December 2018, including the following in the job advert text:
As an Entertainments Host you will need to be a lively individual who is not afraid to speak to crowds and interact with guests. You will facilitate the daily operation of the I’m A Celebrity attraction, Angry Birds 4D and scare attractions on selected dates, along with undertaking duties allocated to you which may include assisting guests, undertaking Health and Safety checks, venue cleaning and front of house duties.
Of course it is possible that the text used has simply been copied from a previous year, but could it also suggest that the Resort have only decided in the last couple of weeks to remove the attraction?
