Paultons Park

Recommended Posts

Maybe they're creating a walk through science thing/dark ride where Wind in the Willows was to do with this CritterCreek thing? And retheming (or theming in the first place) Stinger to something as the Paultons Park website says it is closed for the remainder of the season until Easter next year. 

 

Remember professor Stanley H Blast like roller coasters according to the site thing about CritterCreek. The Diary by him has also been updated a few times in the past month. https://paultonspark.co.uk/education/professor-blasts-diary

 

Would be great if Paultons could create a themed experience around this! And once again, use the success of Peppa Pig to develop there own creations! I look forward to seeing what this develops into! :D

The Stinger has been completey re-painted with dark green track and light bold green supports. Wind in the Willows building is being kitted out inside. I should imagine a lot more will happen after Christmas leading up to it's official opening.

 Wind in the Willows building is being kitted out inside.

 

Oooh, with? Is this bringing an indoor queue experience as as part of Stinger, or will what's in the building be a separate attraction?

 

I thought the old Wind in the Willows thing was quite charming, shame to see it go but I suppose it was a bit dated.

Sounds as if Critter Creek will be an area then!

Professor H Stanley Blast liking roller coasters is obviously going to link to the retheme of Stinger (and the colours sound like they'll work well together from what you've described Rich).

Maybe Wind in the willows will become an interactive creepy cave sort of thing?

Either way it's great to see the park continuing to grow and improve from the success of a pig! Paultons is in my eyes the best park in this country to have used an IP well and added to the park in different ways since! Just love Paultons!

Latest diary is up! https://paultonspark.co.uk/education/professor-blasts-diary/2014/12/566/an-amazing-discovery

 

 

 

One of the larger creatures is the Cat-o-Pillar. He happily takes me for rides upon his back all around the island, purring happily as we go.

Could this possibly be relating to The Stinger? Would seem so.

 

Also it would seem that the Rio Grande train might be involved in this development :o

Stinger in the background, the house thing could be Professor Blasts place replacing the Wind in the Willows and then the train. Exciting times!

If ParkWorld is correct (and we have little reason to not believe such a thing), Paultons might well be getting a new custom Vekoma Junior Boomerang for this season!

Ben 10 at Drayton is such a neat little ride and a ride like that seems to be a ride that would suit Paultons perfectly.

 

Hope to make it to the park this year, and no doubt a Junior Boomerang would pull me back for 2016.

The dinosaur walk through needs serious work anyway. It's not great so to see them reviving it (well you'd assume that's where it's going) is great! A new coaster between the level of Stinger and Cobra is nice to keep luring in the slightly older generation with Critter Creek this year clearly aiming for the youngsters. 

 

This is how an IP should improve a park! Great to see Paultons continuing with creative ideas and strong investment for an independently ran park, this places future should be excellent!

The new addition isn't going to be an IP...

 

However, it can be said that Peppa Pig is clearly the source of Paulton's recent success, which goes to show that one done RIGHT can certainly make a lot of difference to a smaller park...
