Didn't manage to get any photos, but while on the train on Saturday, it looks like they're building some sort of platform on the opposite bank from the boat scene which I assume will be manned by a staff member (like at Alton Towers).

I also noticed there are new speakers around the course but no cameras as of yet.

Did you film a vlog? I think Adventure Cove is the best themed area in any uk park this year ( I class David Walliams world and Tornado Springs as last years projects) Like the looping group could have just painted the shockwave building and reopened the rapids and many guests would have been happy but they also retheming the diner, Maelstrom had a new roof and buildings repaint, Stormforce 10 is a work in process so they been painting and adding stuff when the park been closed, the play ground is now finished just fencing left to put up and after the wave swinger finished and opened I heard they gonna close Air Race temporary to paint and theme it better to the area ready for the 6 weeks holidays.

I didn't Film a vlog no but a video will be out tonight covering all the changes that have happened which is almost half an hour long - by the way what have they added to storm force lately - I'll have a look next time! I do hope the rest of the area looks as good as the rapids

I totally understand that rides are not only safe but are seen to be safe. I've got a little lad who ate all his vegetables so that he'd be tall enough for the water rides this year...it worked too! But then the heights have been bumped upwards. He loved them at WMSP, not hurt by the fact we could go round the log flume 3 times as no one else wanted to come on, but it will be a disappointment if there isn't a sub 1.3 m option.

I think that there will probably be no unaccompanied minors option.

Looks like the boats have all been moved down and ready to be put on the ride for more testing. More cables been added around the circuit and they added more areas for staff members to sit around the ride.
