So I visited the part today after a long absence from coasters and I can finally call myself a season pass holder for a park. Got to ride the Wicker-man, (Which is incredible), The Smiler which seemed to be running rough and I got the chance to go on an old favourite in nemesis. Disappointed at the early closing time of 4 as it was a stunning day for coaster riding. However the pass is very good value for money to go back later and finish the rest of the park.

Closing the park at 4pm in July is kind of one of the worst things Merlin has done in a string of terrible things!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Wow I think it at least stayed open until 5 on a weekday in September two years ago.

Sounds like budget cuts to me.

It was one of the most disappointing things about our visit last August, and we were even fortunate enough to visit on a day the park closed at 6pm.
