Interesting, I would guess that is for greater visibility.I’m not sure but it looks like the operators cabin has been removed from the station platform. It looks like there’s a new building going in opposite.
No I was looking out for new cameras as I think it’s a certainty it will be blanketed it cctv cover now.The trough is actually looking quite clean, in some pictures it actually looks like new concrete. They must have done a lot of jet washing as it used to be filthy and a much darker shade of grey.
Has anyone seen any new CCTV cameras being installed yet?
Intamin I think.
Thanks, I’ve had a look on the Intamin site and the 9 person boat does look exactly like the image Drayton published. I guess it makes sense them being the rides original manufacturer.It’s the same design but with 9 seats instead of 8.
They almost certainly are. Apart from the actual trough, almost all of the ride system has been replaced. I believe it’s had new pumps, a new operating panel, new motors and new wood everywhere. As well as new boats. I think the only remaining things from Splash Canyon are the trough, station buildings and the turntable.Thanks, I’ve had a look on the Intamin site and the 9 person boat does look exactly like the image Drayton published.

I wonder if intamin are involved in the refurb
Yes i can also see that happening, maybe in some of the themed buildings and having a lot more CCTV coverage on pretty much every aspect of the ride to ensure guest safetyI think they know with the 1 million fine the former owners got. They know with the HSE report they got to get this right to get the safety certificate and signed off by HSE. By the time guests get to ride it again in June/July only the route will be the same. Can also see staff positioned all around the ride with E-Stop buttons
