They might be repainting the pirate ship as well, it did need a new layer of paint

Also looks like a pathway through wavebreaker, if we are getting a new flat it could be going there

As the large snake that was on the control booth was sold, plus the cars are still the ladybird eyes...the work by the miniature railway Looks like security fence work. I've just thought too wasn't the welding picture posted with new against it ?

looks like the mini railway has a new tunnel?

I don't think you've got anything to worry about in regards to the pirate ship, quite normal for to be in bit every now and then.

The only real concern with re tracking The Snake is it wont solved the drainage issues, the feet of most of it's structure under the tunnel was always under water.

It'll probably turn out that the activity we see is just them removing what's left of it. We had a classic return with the Waveswinger so many it'd that elusive Enterprise this year ;) (or the Roller.. remember that bad boy?)

I agree, i reckon it's the Ladybird, a classic that's themed for kids and that's the direction they're going in.

I hope we’re not sitting here 2/3 years time talking about parts needed to be re tracked again

It's not a new tunnel for the train, it just looks like they've cut trees and stuff down from around it, so it's now in view.

Something is defo going on there tho. Look at this picture, they've made what looks like a gap in the fence for a new pathway to go under Wavebreaker?

Unless of course that's just for access for the machinery that cut down the trees etc.

But then it also looks like there's markings on the ground for where a new pathway will go?

It's a shame we can't have a drone go over there once a week! laughing

Chances of a new flat over by that boundary are remote. I would have expected to see something somehwere to show us a place or work for a new flat. Sure there is time just but id say its highly unlikely. What does everyone else think ?

I'd say 100% that the next major flat ride will go on the TTT pad.

That are behind Wavebreaker would be ideal for a little cluster of kiddy rides.

^ Most probably putting the rest of the train back on, you could see in that drone footage that there were only 3 cars on the track.

It wouldn't take long to install a flat ride, but we have no idea what their plans are. Seems as though there is a lot going on considering the very recent change of management. 

 

With regards to the area behind Wavebreaker, it looks like they've marked out where turf will be removed, usually that's what would happen when making a new pathway, only time will tell I guess. If they do make a new little area behind there, is that considered a park expansion?lol

Scrap all of that, upon further inspection, those groves in the ground are just a shadow of the supports for Wavebreaker!lol

Still, I do wonder why they've cleared all of that land behind there....

I’m pretty sure the ducks went near end of the season. Also I doubt ttt will be the next flat atm considering part of the ride is still stuck sodily in the ground with concrete

That's what I said , if we were to be getting a flat even a lorry one it would surely be visible where on the video. Unless in true style it rolls in mid season...for now I rest that the balloon rays and pirate ship in refurb yet still the ship won't swing at full height, and the reopening of the snake...a new flat would be wicked though and so desperately needed

Why don't you think theyll get the ship back to full hight ?

its not been at full height for years.... if it has this sort of maintenance every few years I would have hoped that would have been looked at....

I agree with @coolskin, if they do regular maintenance every 5 years they would have had it going much better. I see it going higher again (its one of the main reasons for refurb) but never to its full height.

I don't think the ship has ever been stripped like it has now. I don't know for sure obviously, but I have never seen any HUSS pirate ship looking like that before. If it was regular maintenance, we would have seen pics like before from PWH and other parks too.

I imagine that the boat panels are in the process of being repaired and/or repainted - maybe at the same place as the Balloons?

One is that is for sure, it will definitely be running better this year.

maybe they choose not to run it at full height, not that it can't?
Maybe due to it's age, or it costs to much to run full, or there's new safety restrictions.
But they certainly seem to be going to town on it anyway.

That really is an interesting find, I wonder if that is a historic listing and the plans have changed since? If not, we could all be way off the mark in presuming that Rattlesnake is the "classic ride" that is set to return.
