Not a good year for the park or the Thompson family. Here's hoping the damage wasn't too severe.

Poor Blackpool. The park has experienced more than its fair share of disasters and upsets this year. At least the rebuilding of the Grand National is supposedly on track (no pun intended).

Have they not heard of sprinkler systems in England?
Especially in an indoor attraction like this one, not having sprinklers is really dangerous.

I guess their laws aren't as strict as the ones we have here in the U.S.?
