Well... There goes my last lingering strand of hope for this park. If they are still around in even a few years time it will be a miracle.
Personally, I think it is dead.So what do people think the long-term prognosis for Ultimate is?
Seeing it removed on the new park map really drove home the point for me that it might truly be gone forever. As a yank, I've unfortunately never ridden it, but it's always held a place of mystique for me due to its extreme length and general all around unusualness.
What are the odds that, what is quite possibly the world's most eccentric coaster, will ever roll again?
Living in the immediate catchment area for LWV I thought the park provided a viable alternative to Flamingo Land and on some occasions, certainly events, came up trumps over Flamingo Land.Personally i don’t think LWV has been a main attraction for thrill seekers for probably a decade and apart from the ultimate and raptor attack there wasn’t really anything to draw people to the park.
I think for the park to survive it needs to move forward with its holiday village plans which they spent years getting permission for. The site itself is stunning and offering lodges and moving more towards a family resort would be great. They could offer a lot of outdoor activities to make use of the space. Although it would be completely different to what it has been in the past it would survive if done well
Better than a Pinfari Zyklon at least.Raptor Attack's now at an F1 circuit, which will be hosting the Grand Prix in two weeks time, so I suspect they're trying to get it in operation in time!
...I suspect that particular ride would be a bit 'meh' outdoors in the light though.
