    Logger's Leap

    Yeah no one would give it insurance due to health and safety concerns. The risk associated with the ride was not worth the pay off for the insurer. Admittedly there would be other things that increase the risk with the ride but health and safety would have been the biggest one.

    Can we please stop banging on about bpb and the Mouse. Just like loggers it was evidently closed for health and safety reasons. Also like loggers neither had any chance of reopening once it closed so it might as well be torn down. Loggers is typical Merlin were they don't see any value in reopening it. I'm just thankful they didn't stick a dated or inappropriate IP on it with a load of actors to reopen it.

    Living Nightmare Extreme - SPOILERS

    Yeah it would be a step backwards but they have limited resources. They can't just keep spending money on actors. The year of the walking dead was always going to suffer from this problem. Personally I doubt that the spending the money on extra actors would bring about a return on the investment. The park has been moving towards higher running costs for years with throwing actors at everything and the year of the walking dead is another prime example of throwing actors at something as a "cheap" solution to pulling people in. It is unsustainable as they are sacrificing long term assets for short term gain.

    I doubt it would be back for fright nights. They would have to employ more actors which they shouldn't be doing if they want to maximise profit.

    It looks like it should have just been that little bit faster or just a bit shorter as towards the end it just seems to drag on too much. No idea if that's how it feels on the ride but from the pov that is what I would be concerned about.

    The water table is normally determined by boreholes and the geotechnical engineers would have been able to design for it. The sheetpiles are taking care of the water inflow and pumps during excavation would deal with any possible upward seepage of water. If the temperature has been below freezing then the sheetpiles wouldn't have been able to go in. Winds could have caused issues and any rain would have delayed the excavation. Any issues not detected in the boreholes could have caused delay as well. I'm surprised they have had trouble digging a hole with a sheetpile cofferdam seeing as they are normally used in much more complicated sites.

    2018 General Discussion

    It will be something like pass holders spend more so more pass holders is more profit. While true in the short term it is unlikely to be long term. More passes would likely lead to a lower amount spent per person and if they go multiple times in one year for a discount price they are less likely to return in following years at full price. That being said if they used the short term gain in profits and invested it wisely to encourage people back then the vast amount of discounted passes wouldn't be too much of an issue. But the park has no long term vision so it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    Leaning positive or negative compared to your expectations atm?

    Alton Towers General Discussion

    I meant general filming around the park. Rides are under there own conditions ontop of the park wide condition which I was explaining.

    It's just no film or photography for commercial gain. Private use is fine.

    A lot of places will have a no commercial gain clause about filming on there property. While technically YouTube does fall into that category most places are sensible enough to realise it's free advertising. The clause is mainly there to stop TV, adverts or films being filmed there without them getting paid for the production company using their land.

    Cedar Point

    It had a low speed collision in the station on opening day and has been running on reduced capacity since. The park are currently operating a boarding pass system where if guests want to ride they must collect a boarding pass first. This was introduced because of running on one train.

    Truly brilliant. I love the shambles that is Merlin and I love the over the top reactions of the public. Today is a good day. Legoland seems to hit capacity quite often. Maybe Merlin should spend some more money on increasing capacity or (if the council forbids increasing capacity) develop a system so MAP holders can book.

    Paramount Park UK

    London Resort Company Holdings is delaying the planning application again this time until 2019 along with the 5th public consultation. It appears to be they completely under estimated how long a traffic assessment takes so in a statement they said they need more time. Apparently they are £55m in at the moment and they do have highway modification drawings from engineering firm WSP so it would seem the project is progressing although very slowly. If it wasn't for the engineering drawings I would have said "Paramount Park" was dead in the water.

    Blackpool Pleasure Beach

    It's likely that the poor attendance at the start of the year means the advertising budget had taken a hit and so they can not afford to ramp up the hype train.
