Canada Creek Railway going.

Postby Thekingin64 » Mon Oct 24, 2011 10:03 pm

Major news: Canada Creek Railway at Thorpe Park is to close forever on the 6th November.

While it's possible they're making it go round the whole park, it is most likely they're getting rid permanantly due to highmaintence costs.


It wasn't that good anyway and I only went on it because my dad wanted a break from the major rides and it had no queue.

OMG:
Why remove a part of Thorpe Park History!
(I will be sad to see my Canda Creek Railway goo because I have many happy journeys on it!)
I would hope they are closing it to re-route the journey then re-open it in 2013.

Like I said, most probably maintence costs is the reason they're getting rid of it.

Check out this sad video...


remembering CCR...

And by "tribute", I mean crash the train, buckle the tracks, paint it burnt out and put it beneath Swarm as theming


I agree with Tim there. That is a good idea and would work really well.

As their are three trains I think the best tribute would be leave at least one of the CCR Trains in the Canada Creek Station.
