Many years ago I worked as an engineer and some of the engineering jobs I had were on funfairs, I even worked at dreamland in this capacity. This was all a very long time ago before Dreamland was bought by the Dutch Bembom Brothers in 1981 and wristbands were introduced. Back in my day you paid on the ride and ride prices were adjusted depending on busy the park was at any given time.
Anyway wristbands are coming back, see https://dreamland.recreatex.be/Exhibitions/Register?id=4B7AA032-6AC8-4612-9312-5D7E04467620&_ga=1.166891962.561389745.1449603563
I guess that if Dreamland has one mayor and resolvable problem it is the lack of a showman running it
To expand on what I mean, this is a picture of the main entrance taken yesterday and I guess it screams the person running this doesn’t have the first notion of the meaning of the word attraction.
I am not saying that Dreamland was all good, back in the day, this film was made in Dreamland and is as close as I have seen to expressing the old Dreamland that I am sure most people would like to, what? Forget is not perhaps the right word, perhaps view with a selective memory
