Tornado Springs Theming

Set in a desert resort town of the 1950s, Tornado Springs is teaming in Americana. From vintage vehicles and decorative registration plates to the US diner serving up burgers, breakfast pancakes and shakes.

In order to acquire objects for the new area of the park, staff visited lots of places and pulled stuff out of stinging nettle patches. They bought old tractors and bikes and sprayed them up to make them look abandoned. Everything looks a bit weather-worn and beaten. The engineers added to the authentic, making things like a sparking electric box that is hanging off the side of a wall.

They also did lots of planting in the park and have stuck props in the flower beds too. When we visited we were overwhelmed by the quality of the theming comparing it with Disney standards. The effort that has gone into this is phenomenal and all these little things really add something to it.

This is just another reason why we believe that Paulton’s Park deserves the title of the ‘UK’s Best Theme Park‘ in our Top 10 Listings.
