  1. Can somebody please tell me what the current state of Black Buckaneer's ride area is? I'm asking this as Blue Barnacle was due to reopen as in Black Buckaneer's domain a week after Lockdown began.Can someone please inform me of the Blue Barnacles manufacturer. All I know is that the Blue Barnacle is not a Huss Swinging Pirate Ship like it's predecessor was. Penultimatly can someone please tell me if the Blue Barnacle is new or second hand? If the latter is applicable can someone please name the Theme\Amusement park where it previously operated. Finally will the Blue Barnacle be operational when Chessington can finally reopen to the public on the 4th of July 2020
  2. SteveJ how do you know that Vampire is finally receiving it's_much needed refurbishment? I truly hope this refurbishment restores Vampire to how John Wardley intended the ride and theme to be,three decades ago! In addition to this I hope this revamp enables Vampire to operate with three trains again. To be honest it wouldn't be an impossible request to deliver as Vampire previously operated with three train's. "With the Vampire hopefully being restored to its former glory as well as all the other refurbishment work going on around the park,I can definitely say that 2020 will be the best season Chessington World Of Adventure's has has in it's thirty-three year's of being a Theme park".
  3. I hope that none of the rides and attractions at Drayton Mannor have been irreparably damaged ,by the flooding brought on by Storm Dennis. If Drayton Mannor had to demolish a ride or attraction it would be totally catastrophic. Flooding is the last thing that Drayton Mannor needed just as their recovering from the tragic Rapids accident of 2017. I sincerely hope that Drayton Mannor can repair thier flood damage and reputation. I hope that Drayton can remain a tourist attraction for many years to come.
  4. I agree. The pit the boat sits in is already there,as is as the control booth and queline.The only work that will be required is the painting of the booth and queline and the errection of the boat and supports. I would also like Chessington to enhance the queline by adding more theming and even a new soundtrack. I wonder if the arrival of a new swinging pirate ship mean that the of Pirate's Cove will receive an overall refurbishment? To all me fellow forum members I hope that you all have an awesome weekend,kind regards Theme Park Fanatic
  5. Does anyone know the date when Blackbuckneer's successor will sail into Pirates Cove at Chessington? Additionally can any I tell me how many months,weeks or days it takes to assemble a swinging pirate ship ride. In my personal opinion I doubt that the new swinging pirate ship will be open for the 19th of March the first day of the Chessington 2020 season. kind regards and have and have a brilliant weekend from Theme Park Fanatic!
  6. MarkC what was the cut off age and height of the log flume while it was located in Weymouth?
  7. You say that but Toadies Crazy Cars neaver had a cut off age.Due to this I don't think that Jungle Rangers will have any rules prohibiting adults from rideing.
  8. I personally can't wait to experience the Jungle Rangers,River Rafts and Treetop Hoppers. I hope Chessington theme the indoor section of the log flume will.
  9. No I didn't I heard someone else say that this rumour was going round the theme park community!
  10. Mattgwise I should fit in the boat as I believe that the person sat at the back in a pink raincoat is a full grown women. I'm a very short man at only 5ft in height so my slim frame should slip into the boat with ease. I'm terms of length and height of the track its the same as Pirates Falls at Legoland Windsor isn't it?
  11. Sorry MarkC I wasn't aware that there was already a thread for this subject.
  12. I should fit into the Crocodile's on River Rafts. I went on Pirates Falls at Legoland Windsor. I think River Rafts and Pirates Falls are both the same size, and maybe even manufactured by the same company. If you compare pictures \videos of both the flumes Pirates Falls looks taller but I think the wooden rooth on top of the drop creates this optical illusion. Can my fellow forum members please tell me if they think I'm correct?
  13. Does anyone believe the rumour that has been going around the theme park community lately. People have been spreading rumours regarding Rumba Rapids being reverted back to Thunder River as it was prior to the 2002 Ribena Rumba Rapids sponsorship that has since expired resulting in the simple name change too Rumba Rapids. Please share your opinions and thoughts about not just this rumour but the general long term future of this Thorpe Park classic!
  14. What exotic animals do you think could end up living in the Rainforest land besides the already confirmed Giant Tortoises and Capybara?
