    Regarding The Smiler, a few years ago my partner had knee problems and while she could walk it was only for short distances and she also couldn't stand for long periods of time. So she used a wheelchair while at Towers. At the Smiler, she was asked if she could walk and she said yes (because for the relatively short amount of walking needed in the event of an evacuation she would've been fine) so we used the lift from shop to platform and everything was fine. So there are situations where wheelchair access is needed even for ambulant guests

    I'm not sure where said ramp is... could it be for H&S/evacuation procedures, if they required other means to safely evacuate guests?

    Just a wild guess.

    I'm not sure if this is going to link as it should...
    It's to the right of the exit stairs and can be seen with the wooden planks running along the fence, it was added either last year or the year before.

    They have been messing around with rap entrances in the last few years, that could be something they planned to use but decided against too late.

    That ramp has been there for years and it runs into the staff ride area

    That pic must be a few years old now, it’s the ‘old’ rapids roof, before it was redone.

    Again, it's not always the length of time spent that's the issue, but the environment waiting/queueing is done in.

    The biggest issue for any disabled guest is always the evacuation procedures. Eg if the rapids stopped you could have to climb out at the bottom of the lift, even across some other boats.

    Same for most coasters, eg stuck at top of the lifthill you’ll have to walk down the steps of the lift. Many disabled people wouldn’t be able to do that if you have mobility issues.

    Ah I see. Yeah you'd have to use a image hosting site to post it on here.

    In my experience it's often easier Sharing images publicly via twitter.

    24 days until riding on coasters in the uk hopefully resumes. With it being just over 3 weeks now I'm sure everyone is ready to get back to towers finally
