    Theme Parks Reopening Post COVID-19

    Why bother social distancing, no one social distanced when the flu season normally hits, what’s different now?

    Let’s not forget that Village already did a massive redundancy sweep a few years ago which saw quite a few departments gutted and left a lot of admin areas bare. So would there be many left to make redundant that aren’t there for day to day operations?

    ALL HAIL THE WEB STUDIO GODS!!
  5. Agree there, which is what happened with Sky Voyager. It possibly would have been quicker and more beneficial for them to build a new purpose built building for the ride, rather than trying to shoehorn it into the existing cinder block building. That’s just my 2 cents I guess

    Does it really matter though?
  7. Ride design is not intense, but the way it’s situated puts a lot of people off it. It is quite an intimidating looking ride, mostly because of the way guests view the ride.
  8. Remove the splash down tubs, put in remote control boats, now the abandoned pool has a use and can make money.

    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    Just on the Dolphin pool proximity to the Vortex, hopefully Bikash/ Management can confirm that thought has gone into ensuring the safety of the Dolphins with a ride right next door. All it would take is a hydraulic leak.. but even things such as the rides noise could have potential impacts on the animals. Justice for Captive will have a field day when this ride opens and if the dolphins move back in.

    Nostalgia at the Parks

    I saw it hit the O in its final legs, I also saw it struggle to hit the F, it’s reach was variable. It was really only at the beginning of the rides life that it hit close to the very top and kiss those brakes. If what I’ve been told is correct, it was a struggle to get it that high during those early days.

    It’s not really that much higher than how high it was going towards the end of its life. You just can’t see the letters to reference how high it’s going, and also you are lower on the eastern side of the tower than you are if you were on the western side.
  13. Whilst they are at it, Disney should demolish Sleeping Beauty's Castle because it has been there for a really long time... The castle at Sea World is sadly another case of Sea World neglecting what was once an icon (much like the light house). I am with you, going by the recent trend at that park, it will probably be unceremoniously removed, much like the light house was, but what could or would they put in that location? I mean, it would give them a chance to help flatten that area, perhaps even re-work the pathways around storm, they could fill in the splash down pool for Vikings and make the area more and easily accessible.

    Does it matter what they are called? The world has gone mad, but if people are now getting offended by what people call a parking space, then I don’t know if I want to live in this world anymore. When did everyone become such snow flakes?

    The New Atlantis - Construction Updates

    Some solid ideas there mate. Agree with you 100%. LookinG forward to seeing how the rest of the area turns out, but if this any indication, it is looking to be expected sadly. Also disappointing to see the mentions of the monorail removed, that is also painting a picture. The sea world we once knew and loved is now dead. Can someone please just build @joz’s boardwalk idea, please?
