    I have heard its pretty major structural issues so I think it's had its last swing.

    Can't wait to see what HB Leisure game will be replacing it next year!

    How busy is it there today with the good weather? Are they coping ok with visitor numbers offering a good experience?

    70 mins at night compared to 120 last year, nah I'd say they're pretty good

    Two trains. 30 minute fast track queue (parent swap).

    Very disappointed.

    Two trains at scarefest! Well that's not good. Although I'd rather queue 30 in fastrack than 70 in main

    It was three trains. Batching was good, merge and baggage hold not so.

    Not a fan of the baggage situation on WickerMan. It does help with the Train batching, but creates a bottleneck at the door for the showbuilding.

    WM one-shot fastrack really not helping tonight, we joined an advertised 65min queue at 7.30 but got off at 9.

    Don't they limit fastrack?

    The problem is that loads of gold fastrack users save WM until after dark. On a regular day the spread of fastrack users is fairly even but during scarefest rides like WM and Smiler (that a lot of people want to ride at night) see a surge in main queue and fastrack usage after dark. Ideally they need to cut the one-shot allocation in the evening to compensate.
