  1. I don't think it can be denied that doing this is his work. I don't think it could be argued he could do this work without going there to do it, and there have been very few attractions open to chose from. It cant be argued that you can travel for work if you cannot work from home because that's the law, and therws nothing in law that states the work needs to be essential. That's not a loophole or bending of the rules, its the law which is written that way deliberately. That being the case I find it hard to be critical of him doing it, even if it's not something I'd do myself right now.
  2. I don't get the TPWW hate. I'm no fan, I'm no fan of any vlogger really as I find the whole thing a bit of a cringy embarrassment, but he turns out comparatively decent videos and seems a nice enough chap. I watched this Adventure Island one, what with it being my home park, and he shows the place off really well. Made me want to visit, as his series of videos at the end of summer from loads of smaller parks did for those places for the couple I saw, and having people visit is exactly what these smaller parks need.
  3. This is a very silly way to look at things. The park have put more than reasonable measures in place to be covid safe, you can't blame them for who turns up from where.
  4. This is an excellent move. Sell fewer for more money, make the same money. Now for the same move with fastrack please...
  5. If you struggle with when and when not to take things literally maybe look at a posts reacts to give you a steer. 🙂
  6. I know sarcasm doesnt always translate well in writing, but I'm hoping I'm missing some here otherwise this might just be the most deluded themepark statement since scenic world announced orphan rockers opening date.
  7. Sadly I ultimately think it's right that an open water system water ride does not have a significant amount of investment to keep it operational. It's not up to current regulations for a new build and I can see a time when they are health and safety'd out of existence. What would be perfect for the park would be a new modern flume alongside and interacting with a family thrill coaster.
  8. Adventure Island Errrr.... Billy Butlins Fairground, Bognor. Oh dear. Next year should be better, daughter is just about the magical 0.9 mark so kiddie credits ahoy.
  9. Trademark on Croc Drop has been disputed by someone it seems, so maybe they'll be forced into something a bit more imaginative? I was thinking Never Drop n Smile at a Crocodile, after the crappy kiddie drop towers. (Although I thought Drop n Smile was a generic name for crappy kiddie drop towers so people would know what I meant, but it seems it's just the one a Southend called that so that doesn't work and I apologise for an atrocious attempt at humour)
  10. Reports coming out of USA and China that Stealth blown bulb vaccine only around 80% effective.
  11. The thing that really made Valhalla was it's extremes and it's scale. Assuming the ride layout is largely unchanged that should remain solid. The extreme wetness we can live with being toned down, but if it also loses its extremes of temperature and spectacle as I fear with the expense of those effects being well documented it's not going to get a good reception, and rightly so.
  12. The question we all need to be asking of course is 'can you RMC a log flume'?
  13. I imagine next year will be a near repeat of this year. TWD, DBGTROTD, BM all closed. Capacity issues elsewhere. If only they had a nice open space like a farm to relax in, a large capacity train ride to take you there, an event space like an arena where people could be spread over a large searing area, or a log flume where each riding group could have their own socially distanced ride vehicle.
  14. Well this thread was a massive waste if time, wasn't it?! 😄😄 My plans for 2021 - maybe leave the house?
