And so, as night follows day, the 2007/2008 closed season rolled around, which would see a new area rise from the dust that was Merrie England. While pictures of Battle Galleons can be found in the construction archive, the rest of Mutiny Bay’s construction is documented below. Other notable features of this closed season would be one of The Blade’s “Big Ol’ Refurbishments” we see every now and again, as well as significant restoration work on the Towers themselves. After the fire at the end of the 2007 season, the Skyride also saw some TLC over the closed season and McDonald’s departed from the park after ten years.
