I heard Camelot were opening Knightmare today so ignored the weather forecast and made the 30 minute trip to the park. Knightmare had been advertised on Local radio as well as taking some prime TV commercial slots in the granada region yesterday evening.
The station with train number 2.
When we arrived at the ride however all was not good, the operators had been doing some training earlier in the day in anticipation of an opening this afternoon and we were told operator fault caused the ride to stall before the first set of brakes.
And finally taken from further back showing the train in relation to the rest of the track. Train is on the left hand side.
I didnt get chance to speak to any officals but a couple of ride ops told us a boost section at the top of the lift hill wasnt switched on, the resulting the car didnt have enough energy to make the first set of brakes.
I thought they might lift it off but the intense rain must have put them off, the rain didn’t ease during our 3hr trip. I felt a bit sorry for Camelot, with the delayed opening plus the amount they must have spent on advertising.
Hopefully this is a minor stumbling block and the ride can be open tomorrow without any such trouble. I’ll just have to wait another week to ride it.
That aside it does look like an excellent ride, heres some general photographs I took.
Finally train number 3.
