    Yes but by skipping it staff now take that to mean hold you back and you walk through when the pre show has finished, you don't skip the room as such.

    When it's empty I think it's a lot easier to see than everyone moving forward as a group. I've never actually asked to skip, so wasn't aware of the exact route, but assumed it would be walk though at the end.

    Yep, the problem is if the staff rush they try to get you to go through the room before the group's exited.

    So they don't take you through the back door into the station anymore?

    I always thought that was the case too, maybe too many people have used this to jump the queue?

    Wayne commented saying more people then expected were using that route.
    I'm guessing if they saw someone in the middle of s meltdown they would consider still permitting it, but otherwise it's the hold back method.

    So apparently this poor guy is still sitting in the old Flume tunnel waiting to scare the sh*t out of unsuspecting riders. Someone should tell him.

    I think you can still see part of it from the rapids queue

    Last time I went to towers, I went into the depths of the gardens and saw some guy lift his hat without touching it. What is that all about. I was convinced I was on drugs and couldn't believe what I was seeing. I thought this guy got magic or something. He came over to me, and the hat had thread attached to it...
    Well my dreams ended very quickly and I felt an anti-climax more than I do when riding thirteen

    Haunted by gardeners once employed there, by empty Henry the hound coffee cups, and the strange sounds (and smells) of bottom burps from the abandoned toilet block, spooky!

    General discussion about the 2019 season at Alton Towers. Not general discussion about whatever pops in to your mind when you wake up in the morning (I am not saying anyone has done that mind).

    The scary thought is there appear to be people and the first thing that pops into their mind is the queue times....
