Commenting has been turned off.
Time to end this thread now, I'll make a "Winter 2022/23" thread to use until the season begins
New Mcdonalds granted despite continued opposition from us locals.
Another nice back hander given to ESC no doubt. What a waste of natural land and space and this brings the 7th Mcdonalds within a 15 mile radius of the park boundary.
A large crane currently working on the pirate ship...so let's hope it's getting the work needed , maybe off to huss for a refurbishment, maybe being replaced...maybe being removed. Time will tell the next couple of months. **update, its still very much intact.
It’s all quiet on here recently, let’s hope the park gives us something to talk about soon
The park gates will be open this Saturday 5th to allow people to park and walk through to the rugby pitch to watch their firework display.
Short video now on Luke Martin photography page. ( just the finale bit of the fireworks)
Let's hope this closed season brings some serious changes...
Fireworks were good. Nice use of lasers and two drones flying above too.
Oliv3r drone photography via Facebook has some aireal shots, and luke Martin photography has the other pics - with a video to be uploaded soon.
This season is over what's the thought for 2023 ?
Very wet and quiet start to the day on park today
The carousel is actually in operation . Which is good news for this half term week, leaving just rattlesnake out.
So Cannonball Express will be open for Halloween!
But rather surprisingly, Eggspress will not and will remain closed until 2023. Its very strange for such a low maintenance coaster like that.
Wonder if they are refurbishing the carousel now before they go on there break because they know they have something new coming in the new year. Really hope the wave swinger gets a refurb it’s more then needed. Ponies could do with some fake hay bales to go with the hurdles and safari needs a lot of work. I’m not sure we will see cannonball open again.
Sadly the 3rd McDonald's drive thru in lowestoft just outside the park gates is almost but approved following a change in the planning process/application.
Really unnecessary ( all for the jobs i must add yet not when we have 2 already - a different idea would be better ) and it will affect the park and the amount of the food they churn out before, after and during the times its open.
To be honest, when you got close to the Carousel you could see it was in really bad condition paint wise. I hope they do the whole thing and not just the horses. Would also be nice to see some greenery placed around the ride!
So the carousel is off for a refurb, ok fair enough yet could this not have waited another 4 weeks. As assumingly we will have cannonball closed and now another for the half term, it leaves even less to do than ever
Last open weekend of the season until the chills starts.
Cannonball still closed, don't think that will be back until 2023, maybe it's finally getting new trains....
I visited the park today. Beautiful weather and the car park was full (wouldn’t have been with a parking attendant) but still nice to see. It’s strange because it is still the school holidays and the park was busy but some of the food kiosks weren’t open (Roosters, so nothing down the bottom, Amigoes and kiosk near the kids rides.) shame also that the Circus stopped on August 31st. Seems a strange date, Wednesday with 4 more summer holiday days.
Cannonball wasn’t running unfortunately but everything else was and the park atmosphere was great.
spending A lot of time in the kids area the Old woody’s driving school is derelict and looking worse for wear. i know this was a pay to play attraction but shame it’s just sitting there not being used. The footprint would be great for a small toddler coaster.
The Safari is starting to look great tbf with the vegetation really grown up now. But my goodness the animals may as well be thrown away as they look terrible. snake half fallen over, paint jobs non existent on them. A simple refurb or new animals would make that ride a really great experience!
everything else looked good. Still using the exit as entrance in RTTT. Not much of an issue but the great ride audio still plays in the now exit tunnel. The scoreboard wasn’t working properly either. An on cart system like Duel would
