    I think they look fine, am just concerned at the limited capacity with them being 2 across seating.

    You are completely missing my point. The post I am replying to in this thread is essentially about the unprofessionalism of the social media team this year. A park for what ever reason closes its ride (whether their own fault or not is irrelevant to my point) yet they then make a post about a band regrouping and write #currentlyunavailable in the place of the one not there. It is not a sensible idea to do that when so many customers were recently angered for attractions not being available during a recent busy period.

    OK perhaps I should have quoted what I was referring to for you. Look at the very last image in the post two above mine (by ChiapasC) and you'll know if you had read about the fiasco of unavailable attractions over the busiest weekend of the year.

    Have they seriously put #currently unavailable on a social media post !? Absolutely disgusting knowing so many thousands of people complained at that during the busy weekend with the cold(ish) weather. They are essentially saying they found that situation funny!

    It sure was but it did offer completely different views which could be a preference factor in some peoples eyes.

    Ride Accidents

    Accident on an inflatable slide in Woking at a fireworks display. Prior to being confirmed as an inflatable it was thought a helter skelter had collapsed. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-46085445

    The outer seat is my favourite! You feel really exposed and as if you are going to slip out which adds to the thrill.

    haha, just what I noticed, but your older looking image pretty much confirms it. Hotel finally going to be built???

    Could well be! It appears as if Google maps has very recently updated its aerial view of the park and that could be an older version of that same area highlighted above. That said I can't imagine anything being able to be built there tbh as that would require an insane amount of tree removal. It probably has no meaning to anything new at all but time will tell. EDIT: Could even be the location shown here but rotated: Wasn't the hotel planned slightly right of this location???

    This makes me laugh more than the actual post you have quoted! The forum is a place for opinions and supposed to be a fun place so there was no harm done in saying what was said! Clearly Cedar Creek (and myself) was joking and would not think those things would actually happen!

    Fright Nights 2019 - General Discussion

    I was originally with the "bring back big top" idea but since thinking more about it, the event just needs a complete refresh. 4 or max 5 mazes that are brand new, well thought out and high quality. Everything already done including popular attractions such as "Big Top" ans "Asylum" just need to be put to rest.

    Good shout, I am confident we shall see Slammer, Loggers and CCR return, but seriously no chance of the rest I'm afraid Cedar Creek!
