So, went yesterday which was the first visit since 2019 before the pandemic. Was really looking forward to it. Entrance to the park was so quick and effortless so well done Alton for that. Thought all the staff were excellent on the day. Rides were running (not rubbing) really well, Wickerman was on fire excuse the pun! Wow it was much smoother and faster than I remember. Nemesis also running great although I was saddened to see they have removed the front row queue. Ate in Woodcutters, decent value and good sized portions. Refused to pay the stupid prices at some of the vans on “food street”. Went in Duel and oh my, what have they done to the indoor queue!! It’s so high compared with the scenery below! Totally has spoilt the effect of the pre show. Ride seemed to have more dark sections than last time but apart from this, not much has changed. Managed a go on Gangsta Granny. Was very enjoyable although I thought the ride cars would of had a a bit more movement (up and down tilt) not just side to side. In terms of Covid, I thought Alton had a done a great job and we felt very safe. The regular queue line announcements helped and the majority of people kept to the chevrons in the queue lines. Overall we had a great day, but it was much busier than we expected. Queues went up to 45 mins for the main rides. We managed 8 rides during the day but the 4pm finish was just too early. Park looked good overall. Enjoyable day!
