Interestingly I noticed that a lot of outlets where doing a roaring trade in beer (woodcutters, welcominn and coffee shack ) I guess that's all the familiesI would agree but all parks are pushing the family market, so it must be economically more viable to focus on families. Drayton push Thomas Land, Paultons is Peppa Pig, Towers with Cboobies and a family friendly SW in Wickerman.
Even Blackpool went with a Mack family coaster in Icon!

Is this true? I am in a family 2 adults and 2 kids and once I get in with our MAPS we take our own packed food and looking around Cbeebies and other parts of the park most similar families or those with younger kids have food packed in a rucksack etc. Most of the people I see in woodcutters or explorers through the window are teenagers or older groups with families so I don't know where this "families spend more money " comes from or do merlin get data to prove otherwise?
Really sad to see nemesis with much smaller queue than other rides. I know it's throughout is better but still remember the days when it was upto 3 hours
Nemmy is always run on point. No faff. Bish bash bosh. Get them in and out.
Unlike all the other faffy rides
I was thinking that on Thursday. All the overgrown queue lines too. Then I thought that reason it has a short queue, is unlike the other on that day. It was the only one not to suffer Down time. The old girl is showing its sisters how it's done.
Wicker Man is a great all round experience though, it’s not really about the coaster on its own, it’s about the who package; the theming, the effects, the story, and the coaster. And with the family market seemingly more lucrative than the thrill market is a present I can understand why they’ve made it a ride for the whole family. And it also helps fill a gap in the parks lineup, and although they’re still very much lacking in family rides, it’s something at least. They didn’t need another thrill coaster.
Oh, I agree.... To a certain extent. What I don't agree with is it being a family ride. Well, the coaster is, but everything that surrounds it isn't. If it were a family coaster, I could understand it. But to take a maily into the preshow and tell them they are about to be burnt to death....
I would say the ride was a bit of an own-goal... But clearly it isn't going by the lines. I find the whole thing really puzzling, but I guess that I'm in the wrong!
