    Capacity ranges from 2250 to 12,750 with an average of 8250.

    Edit: @Ethan it's showing 6000 on the 6th but only 2 out of the 3 packages I'm monitoring have capacity.

    You know it's hot and busy when Battle Galleons is rocking an hour queue

    We were at Thorpe yesterday in similar temperatures, and everyone there seemed OK. Thorpe’s probably worse for heat as it has a lot more concrete and less trees than Towers.

    Great decision to extend hours, though!

    Haha typical Alton Towers communication there! It’s literally just opened this afternoon, the closed message has been removed now. :)

    Nice to see all attractions now open again. The queues don't seem too bad today considering the weather

    Would be interesting to see how social distancing has been implemented on Hex. It's currently on 30 mins! :eek:
    (Usually doesn't exceed 10)

    At a guess hex is less likely to have such issues with the automatic system then others as its not such a wide zigzag queue line.

    Doubt it, they’re breathable fabric, not plastic bags over their heads I’m sure people will cope with 40 plus mph winds in their face for a minute or two

    I don't know why you guys think I was just reffering to the heat. The actual force and intensity of rides added on to the very warm weather today means it's far more likely.

    If there were then we would know by now because the tabloids would have found out.

    Was at park today and was real hot..... queueing up for Wicker Man about 4pm, if anyone was on site as well did they spot the low helicopter that hovered above towers Street and then lined up and started to land? I didn't get the exact location of the landing just saw it prep for landing before losing sight of it due to buildings in the way as it descended.

    The helicopter was yellow so don't know if staffordshire air ambulances are that colour (west mids are red and fly out of Cosford)
