Nah it's not been confirmed yet, still speculation. I have a feeling that they will want to get it back open in time for the 30th anniversary in 2024, but of course we don't know how long the re-track will take.
Bit random but I do find it odd that the Tickler is the only marmalizer effect that doesn't actually do anything to the riders (because of clearance of course). The other effects do wet or disorientate the riders.
A heads up folks, Chessy could fall within the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) if the expansion of it is approved.
Yeah I'd prefer it to open next year too, in time for Nemmy's closure. A compromise would be it being open for Scarefest and then opening for the whole of next season. Would have to be included in admission though, but the throughput won't be great if it's a maze (and would Towers really want to...

A doctor's letter (on official, headed paper) would be accepted, as long as it states that your anxiety is the reason you are unable to queue normally. A letter just stating your diagnosis would not be sufficient.
Edit: it may have changed, as doctor's letter is not mentioned on the list. I...
Yeah I think people are forgetting that not every ride at Towers gives a time. You can ride the ones that don't via the exit as many times as you like.
The rides covered by the pass (and so give a time) are;
Peter Rabbit Hippity Hop, Gangsta Granny: The Ride, Wicker Man, Runaway Mine Train...
Ahh I see, fair enough. It's definitely just two though.
On my last visit to the Beach in 2019 it was fairly busy but not overly so, and I didn't have to use my pass at all. Most waits were below 30 mins If I remember correctly.
