    @ihaveaspergers sounds interesting, do you keep historical data? I think a few other parks have public queue times as well do you keep track of those?

    Yep. ParkPlanr has queue times for Alton, Chessington,thorpe, Legoland Windsor and efteling and any queue time updates are logged so I have data for each park from when I added them to the app.

    Some one did also mention it on Alton FB page that they had been stuck on the mono rail and was going to miss the ERT, the quote below is a copy and paste of the FB post

    That's definitely the incident my friend was involved in. She's since posted they had to get off and walk back into the station

    It can be brought inside the park's control by installing air conditioning in the gondolas :p

    True, but that doesn’t solve the issue for today.

    what so the Sky Ride can’t operate due to the temperature inside the gondola?

    How would they power a Air Con unit? And what stress factors would it add to the cable and drive system
