The "Bouncing Bugs" (formerly Ug Bugs in Ug Land) in their new location, as the operator cabin for the ride is constructed.
These pieces of steelwork were used for the transportation of Rita's trains from Germany to the UK.
The trains were secured onto these pieces of faux track, inside the containers.
The steel used in the trains' transportation may be retained for future train maintenance purposes.
Another look at the discarded steelwork. It is being stored behind Toyland Tours, along with the Lava Lump that is due to be relocated to the Forbidden Valley for 2005.
