    Wickerman was ace! 90 minutes in reality - and that was from the ridetime sign, which has stated 0 mins since we arrived!

    As is the Rapids, which never really has been in the past.

    It's only the other day people were saying Smiler had been most reliable this season.

    Has it even opened today so far or is it just the last one out of the hat to be opened eventually?

    Could that be because the tech teams had to rush it into service thinking that they were having a May opening for it?

    My mate was telling me that his mum went on Smiler last weekend and it shook one of her teeth out. It wasn't even loose. Just vibrated the tooth out because her jaw was being smashed about so much due to being on the back row. Then to add insult to injury the ride ops wouldn't even retrieve it for her.

    I know The Smiler isn't the smoothest however I don't think it's quite rough enough to rattle a tooth out! God help her if she was ever to ride the likes of SAW: THE RIDE, Colossus or Furious Baco! She'd have to eat via a straw for the rest of her life!

    Is this a late April fool's joke?

    :p

    I can't help but think a lone tooth would be very difficult to retrieve.

    She just wanted them to have a look for it, but they said no

    And quite rightly too.

    They can't/won't shut a ride just to look for what can only be described as a needle in a hay stack.

    Was good to see Wicker man actually open for ERT this morning. Joined the queue at 9:40 and people were already on the ride, got on within an hour. Big improvement from a few weeks back.

    No fire on the shoulders this morning, no. Looked like they’d cranked up the mist though .

    I joined a small queue for it before lunch which ended up taking an hour, horrendously slow throughput.

    Gonna take a stab at this one, hopefully it's on point as it's a sharp piece of ride soundtrack...
