What is the problem with getting this ride to Dreamland, is it between the Council and the park owners or something else, anyone got any recent pic's of how it looks in 2018.

The adult Whip is the property of the Dreamland Trust. At the end of the day someone would need to pay to restore this ride , cant see Thanet Council doing it. I cant see Dreamland paying out for it either as they are running a business. Its a one off ride and a real shame to see it end its days like this. The junior Whip is going to be restored in 2019.
