Don't know why anyone would pay £10 for smiler fastrack anyway when SRQ is free and quicker
They should almost issue the Fastrack into time slots to ensure even distribution throughout the day. They used to with the free Virtual-Q tickets back in the day.
They do have time slots. When I bought single shot for wicker man they asked me what time.
WM one shots are limited and display a time slots, the problem is gold FT can be used at any time. If a lot of gold fastrack users want to do WM at night there's no way of directly controlling this.
Does you know the limit on fastrack packages and single shots?
If it is still as it was the limit sold is variable based on the main queue wait time, with the fastrack wait time a percentage of that.
This is a mental way if doing things as the longer the main queue gets the more fastrack gets sold, compounding the problem, both queues grow, no one is happy.
I imagine the limit for packages is about 2,000 when the park is at capacity, 35,000.
True. Riding on your own doesn't make any difference tho rly
It does when it's a awful (rough) ride like Nash or a Euro fighter--had some of the most fun rides I have had on those due to us all laughing due to the pain /jolts
Theres nothing quite like having a chat about ride block layouts whilst on said ride, hard to do without going with someone.

I always feel more comfortable on a ride with other people, especially when it's one I'm not keen on. (Cough Galactica)

I do wonder if there are any limits on FastTrack. I was at Thorpe a few weeks back and whilst waiting in line for Saw the main queue line pretty much stopped for 10-15 mins to let FastTrack on. The lady at the door even said that when they have too many FastTrack they need to stop the main queue line. I felt sorry for her, everyone was pretty mad at the situation (FastTrack and main queue).
I also can't see Merlin limiting a revenue steam. I suppose it's like EasyJet - there is no limit to the number of speedy boarding passes the sell.
There's some sort of limit as I've seen nearly all Fastrack products sell out at one time or another.
The speedy boarding analogy works to a point, but you can't sell more speedy passes than you have seats, which is effectively what you would be doing if you sold unlimited Fastrack tickets.
With the amount of structure they have built for The Attic maze in the only public accessible part of the Towers
And with Towers mentality of leaving Scarefest mazes set up all the time.
I’m gonna say RIP to the Towers ever being open to the public again.
Here's to hoping they havn't destroyed anything in there.
It’s so annoying that 5 years ago you could go in pretty much every part of the towers. Now ents just leave everything up and that means you can’t get anywhere.
If they do leave the mazes up then you won’t be able to get anywhere next season. They should open the west wing again as that’s not got any mazes in now sanctuary and TOTT have gone.
I bet they won’t - and health and safety will be the excuse
shame - if this building was in the hands of the National trust it would be a different story. Beautiful building with a rich history left to rot
Such a shame and another oversight by M£rlin. During closed weekdays I could imagine tones of oldie coach trips visiting the towers and gardens if they both were looked after.
