- FEBRUARY 18TH 2007 :NEW DIMENSION TO THE RIVERBANK EYE-SPY
News has been churning in Old MacDonald’s farm so far this year, but in case you haven’t heard the Dung Heap is not the only thing to look out for in 2007.
The Riverbank Eye-Spy is going 3D for the new season, as the old 2D theming is replaced with all new models, in a style similar to that seen on the Driving School. Farming has never looked so good.
- FEBRUARY 24TH 2007 : BLACKHOLE DEPARTS AT LAST
The Blackhole, which closed in 2005, has finally left the X Sector this week. It is not known where the ride is destined to end up, but it is good to see the park finally remove the coaster which had spent much of 2006 sitting in pieces outside of its tent.
When the The Blackhole closed in 2005 it had thrilled riders for 21 years, being one of the first coasters to be built at the park arriving in 1984.
