I remember when Gomerpyle had a hand in closing one down in the south of England a few years ago.

This one was closed due to lots of complaints.

^ Gomer really got stuck-in on that case.

You can read the whole sordid tale HERE about Lapland New Forest if you have the time.

Gomer steps into the fray around page 10. Wink

They seem to be a recipe for disaster. I remember the first one well, it was horrible and a lot of people seem to have been left out of pocket. This one at least has recognised that it's gone belly-up and has at least promised to arrange refunds instead of spinning things out for the purposes of overt thievery.

It's not helped by this year's rather warm December, it's just soggy and cold, not really wintery at all.

Why on earth do they try and do things like this year after year in the UK ? It never works and when we actually get more than 3" of snow the whole bloody country goes into lockdown and nobody then can near these places anyway, not as they are much to write home about from what I have read. Smile

We can ship you the snow from here, but it would probably melt in Customs.

They were just talking to some angry visitors and sponsors of this event, on the radio. The organizer is being presented as someone who bit off more than he chew rather than it being any out-and-out scam attempt.

I got that feeling as well - I've seen quite a few events like this where a well-meaning but inept organiser set something in motion before figuring out all of the important details. Most of my experiences have been related to medium sized arts events or music festivals by people who have never done anything of the sort before & just don't realise what all is needed.

In this case, it looks like the real problems were related to sourcing enough old fat dudes to play Santa (the one time of year when we are in great demand!!), and getting "better" decorative and interactive elements. In other words, having a better sense of what parents may expect when taking their kids to a paid Christmas experience. After all, everything is magnified at Christmas, especially disappointment and rage.

PS I had the same feeling after parting with £12.50 at Kew Gardens
"illuminated trail through our enchanting winter landscape" recently.

Looks like Jade Rabbit wasn't that impressed either

"THIS Winter Wonderland theme park has been blatantly mis-sold to me by the Chinese lunar program."

the ice rink photo appears in the BBC link in the OP.
But very much worth appreciating here:

It is slightly larger than a bathtub I think.

You may not be aware of how it ended or all the background but eventually those behind it were prosecuted and convicted. However, it was then 'discovered' that a member of the jury had been passing comments by some electronic method, that somehow the defence got to know about, and the conviction was overturned.

It became apparent that such a result was as inevitable as it was unbelievable.

For legal reasons, I'll say no more. Wink

As regards this event

For the benefit of non-UK eater members this is a major UK and highly respected charity. Shocked

By the way, I don't think Slightly was posing as Santa, due to this quote from the article:

Quote:
the Santas were described as being young, thin men in Santa suits.


That pretty much rules out the squirrel...
