Timber Tug Boat

Recommended Posts

What on earth are they thinking?! It looks so out of place there, but would look completely natural next to fish, or tidal, or rumba, or pretty much anywhere else really. Are we supposed to see the word timber in the name and suddenly think it's a good match for the area, despite what our eyes tell us? 

 

With that wagon sitting there it's a nice bit of contrast where previously something as small as  place to sit was worth theming well, to today where it's fine not to bother with theming on a whole ride. Well done everyone.

Jokes aside... is that the undercoat for the fence or did Merlin simply pick any colour they fancied? Blue is so cohesive with the surroundings... (!)

It does look ridiculous, even more so in person! It's quite sad to see what was a nice little area of the park being destroyed. Sure, people will argue that things don't last forever and theme parks have to change sometimes...but this is just a mess.

I believe that's so they can work on the electrics under the boat easier. It isn't testing as the barrier is up on the side, that if testing the ride would have smashed down. It's just wedged like that.

Ah Boaty McBoatface. I guess the fences were probably painted with whatever bulk-buy paint was the cheapest on offer at B&Q. :P Just glue some shells on some drainpipes, throw some pebbles on the pavement, hang up some rope netting around Old Town, and the theming is done! :good: I mean they haven't even bothered to jet wash the dirt off it, never mind trying to theme it properly.

The dirt probably IS the theming 

 

Still can't fathom the colour of those fences - just doesn't fit in the area at all
