Winter Off Season Report

Barry and myself visited the park last Thursday to find the park pretty much as it was in summer; minus the people and of course the rides were still mostly dismantled. But at least everything was still there; including Absolutely Insane.

Other good news is that park maintenance staff were clearly evident throughout the day. A selection of which were bemused by our presence as we captured photos of the park. They were mainly seen working on the log flume and applying some of Stig's super grease to a few of the children's rides (i.e. - Pony Express) next to Volcanic Impact. It appears that the erection of the structure of the dodgems has already begun too.

The seats on Amazing Confusion seats were uncovered.

The gondolas for Beast have been taken off as usual, but the ride structure itself wasn't packed down as it had been in previous years.

Unlike last year, the cart for Absolutely Insane has been removed.

It looks like the arms for Techno Jump are still getting some TLC back at their home in Italy.

We also noticed this sign for Wrecker's Cove leaning against a storage container in the car park beside Jubilee Odyssey. A random place to leave it. Perhaps they're getting a new one to reflect a fewer number of tokens required or wrist bands?

Whilst speculation is rife about what's been occurring inside the pyramid this off season. Sadly we didn't get a chance to check any of these developments out. However, it's only a little over 2 months now 'til the park opens for the 2008 season.
