    Thanks both of you :)

    So in theory could you operate a one train service with the trims off and not require the minimum riders without issue? Of course it’ll kill throughput though.

    No, 'cause the train would overspeed and cause the ride to fault.

    I assume it is not possible to have some trim brakes on and some trim brakes off.

    Seemingly not without a major systems upgrade.

    The issue is the turn after the first drop, it was going to fast around it. There isn’t enough time to calculate the trains speed once it leaves the lift to engage/disengage the correct number of brakes.

    So better sensing and faster operating breaks?

    It seems on the app you can't book on 4th july so I'm assuming it's reached capacity

    Doesn't the app just open the same accesso passport store as the website does?

    It certainly does.

    @Ethan Apologies it is showing as sold out when you try to checkout for the 4th July.

    @imanautie want to check via dev tools to see what the limit is saying?

    I doubt it’s sold out probably someone has taken them off sale or something like that.

    It depends on the package, if someone gives me an accesso passport URL for a package I can check for that particular one.

    Have sent you a PM.

    The 4th July has now disappeared off the booking site.

    It seems they are changing the packages, it never used to have duration or used as fields.[​IMG]

    Looking at Chessington passholder numbers seems they are operating with a total capacity of somewhere in the region of 5k guests.[​IMG]

    Not in the case of The Smiler and Th13teen. The Smiler always has 8 dummies on empty trains after stoppages/during testing, so would always need at least 8 riders during normal operation. For Th13teen, as others on here have already stated, when running empty trains the trim brakes are turned off. They need to be on when the trains are loaded with any weight, but any less than 18 riders and it has a high chance of stalling mid-circuit.

    So they put in trim brakes to slow it down when the ride has people in it, but if it has less than a certain amount the ride risks stalling? Well how stupid is that. The manufacturer designed a ride that is too fast without trim brakes and risks being too slow with them
