Grant a Wish Weekend
Permalink Closed


Hi Guys,

PWH ran a Grant a Wish competition and I was one of the lucky winners. They even showed me around Wipeout and Marble Madness.

 

I found out some information....

It is a possibility Rattlesnake will return, they are in talks.

TTT wont be replaced for at least a couple of years.

If they wanted to add another train to Cannonball, they would have to upgrade the whole electrical system costing tens of thousands of pounds. Not only would they need to spend that money, they would also need to buy a new train.

KMG has said they cant run Fireball over 90 degrees and for a certain time.

 

It was amazing to see under the track and in the electrical room of Wipeout!

Yikes, i'm gonna be really negative now... so be warned lol
Cannonball use to run more trains on that system so i don't see why it can't again.. but as for money how much did the throw down the toilet for Hyper Drive? I know what id put they money towards.

Interesting news about Rattlesnake, but i doubt it'll happen.. PWH is known for talking about things than doing things.. and i suspect it's an excuse to keep it dumped there.

So but the time TTT is replace it would be about 10 years later than it should have been.. also this sounds like bad news for any new flat ride coming in the next 2/3 years, as they've already got the base for on and a location ready to go. if they're not going to use it for another 2/3 years they're not going to be buying any new rides for a while.. yikes.

Yeah it's quite cosy under Wipeout, i did some work under/in there.

so nothing we didn't already know really... yet no new flat next season ? oh dear.....

Pretty sure Cannonball had 4 or 5 trains when it opened - the cost of a new car would not be worth it I cant imagine for the footfall the park gets - but my question is what happens to the current car when it goes ? Scrap the ride altogether ?

This is sad news, because TTT must be the cheapest ride to replace.... And if they can't do that.... :(

Knew I was on to something with my Rattlesnake theory ;)

Shame to hear about TTT not getting replaced anytime soon tho, really would have thought that would be a top priority.

Obviously things can change, so we'll have to wait and see!
