Slammer

Recommended Posts

I'm in Cabin's queue now and Slammer has been dead all day as far as I'm aware. It's also got a sign outside its entrance explaining its unavailable. The ride may have well packed up for the year now, or worse, for good.

2nd time this year it dies the day before I go :D So this leaves 4 rides unavailable now, Samurai Vortex Tidal Wave and this. Not good.

I'm a Celebrity is also unavailable, as are Loggers, Rumba and Rocky Express after 5pm - meaning that today, the last five hours of the event sees 8 rides/attractions closed.

It may just be understaffing as for fright nights a lot more operators are required due to the extended hours, and if I remember rightly one person cant operate a ride for more then 8 hours by law...

Slammer is not closed because of understaffing.

It heard everyone slate it saying they wanted to get rid of it, and is having a hissy fit....

Actually no, all you haters would want that, it being closed longer gives more chance of it getting removed haha :P

They had better keep it... One of my favourite flats I've been on in the UK and abroad... It would be a shame if they got rid of the world's only... Love Slammer. Also the throughput and operations are improving a lot recently on it.

I think Thorpe will keep it for a while now..

In the last 2-3 years Thorpe has poured loads of money into it..

 

Last decade more like...

 

Let's be honest, as soon as S&S stopped producing actual components for it Slammer was doomed...

Dead as a door knocker. 

 

It's amazing it lasted this long as it was, by the end I was treating every ride as a final ride. 

 

Bye Slammer you unreliable, amazing ride. I shall miss you.

YES it might finally be going! So with Samurai and this pretty much doomed, hopefully they can buy something new for either next season or 2017, although I'm not holding my breath.

I still don't understand why on earth they weren't advertising it when opening, focusing in on the worlds only tag line!
