Monks Walk is a hive of activity full of enthusiasts wanting to see a moment in history, Loggers Leap being ripped up like a piece of paper! The ride trough is made up of fibreglass panels which when picked up by heavy machinery looks to come apart very easily.
Over the past few weeks, it looks like the park has been concentrating on cutting down trees around the area and land clearing. The area looks even more unrecognisable since our last visit over 2 weeks ago. The final drop, lift hill and train station remain standing for now but we don't think it's going to be long until more dramatic changes happen around the area.
With two of the fence panels of Platform 15 now removed for easy access, we can see straight through to the first lift hill of Loggers Leap which has had its retaining walls removed and the land around it flattened. The entrance tunnel/building to the first lift hill is long gone now! All of the dirt and concrete retaining walls can be seen pilled up in the middle of Old Town.
Looking into the area you can see metal posts where the Loggers Leap trough once sat. The removal of the old log flume is fully underway.
Our favourite part of these updates is seeing where and what's been done to the piece of theming that previously sat on Rocky Express. This week he's found a wig to keep his head dry! Stood next to the old water tower theming for Rocky Express he's not letting the ship go down without a fight.
