Series 5 uses the fun fair ride/trip around the house notably less than series 4. It's entirely possible that this was due to the budget being cut (the supporting cast disappears almost entirely that year) or diverting the money elsewhere (like the giant fan Grab a Grand, and the international Gotchas). So setting it up and the work involved to do the "stunt" each week presumably did cost a bit.

But so creative, I doubt we’ll see anything on that scale again.

Do you mean, strike and rebuild the set every week? or striking the set at the end of this final run?

Each week. So much detail involved.

I would have thought House Party would have just remained up in one studio for the run. If they managed to book one of the five main Television Centre studios, they could have the set up for the entire run from October until March?
