    Sorry, I've not been posting as much over the last couple of weeks. But if it helps you all relax, I'll do some moaning:

    Merlin suck.

    Good day on park today. Very quiet, car park about half full. All rides running well (apart from Wicker Man which expired at about 2.30pm.

    Wildly inaccurate queue times. Wickerman said 25 mins, it was walk on. Galactica said 35 minutes, but was 15 minutes. Smiler said 65 minutes, i fast tracked, but then saw the queue and it was no more than 20 minutes. Nemesis walk on all day

    ...but they don't exaggerate queue times to boost fasttrack sales.

    Dispatches on Wicker Man were fab this morning and very poor tonight, resulting in a massive queue.

    Did the ride break down at all today, out of interest? Only asking because I've ridden Wicker Man 3 times since it opened, and it has broken down 2 out of those 3 times, so I wanted to see whether its reliability has improved since the start of the year.

    Least it didn't break down all 3 times, though!

    Yes, last night I was in the queue for my the last ride of the evening, and it broke down for 30 mins. They kept playing the announcement that recommends that you leave the queue line and go on other rides, despite it had gone past 9pm and all the queue lines were now closed :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy: Obviously we all stayed put until the ride was up and running again.

    Yup - we waited as well, and it was worth it.

    It was better riding Saturday night with the flames working, it was a little disappointing that the flames were not working after it broke down. You could see them working while riding the ride in the dark nice and clearly.

    The flames need manually resetting after a breakdown and this requires going to the little building down by the Wicker Man. With it being about 9.30pm I assume they did not have a staff member available to perform the reset (I think it needs to be someone from ents but could be wrong).

    :)

    Is Nemesis OK? According to the ridetimes.co.uk I notice that it was down for most of the evening last night and never reopened. Still showing unavailable this morning

    Was riding yesterday about 530 and there was a loud noise from the train about half way round. It then estoped and never reopened again.
    Apparently I wasn’t the only guest to report it.
    Sounded like something hit the train.
    Maybe a phone , I don’t know.
    Hope the old girls ok.
    Need my end of season Nemmy rides ! :(
