    So we arrived at towers just after ten. Brought our tickets. Used 2 for 1. Got in pretty quickly and checked ride times.

    Headed over to thirteen and had a good ride on that. Then we realised that most of the coasters were down. Rita was on too long a queue so we headed over Galactica. My son rode but I didnt. Dispatches seemed pretty slow. But then I guess that's nothing new. We had a couple of rides on blade then headed into the queue for wickerman. It was advertised as an hour and a halfs queue but we reckoned we waited around 2 hrs. They sent some empty trains around x3 so I'm guessing they were struggling. The dispatches on this were awesome and although we had such a long wait we reckon it's faster than last year. We then wandered over to the dungeons. We waited ten mins paid 10.00 for two of us and I was quite surprised I quite enjoyed it. After that we nipped over to oblivian and had a front row ride first two seats on the left. Apologies to the guy I made deaf but it was an awesome ride and dispatches were phenomenal. Then we headed back to thirteen which had gone from an hours queue to 15 mins. We doubted that it was actually that to be honest. We then called it a day and headed back to towers street.

    Really impressed with operations today. It was hot and I could see the ride crews were shattered and hot. Blivvy. Thirteen and wickerman crews were work horsing. Different feel to the place than last year. Very happy me

    It was really busy today but since I did all coasters last year it was more of a relaxed day. Looking at ride times is a bit more reliable this year. I really hope you enjoy your day :)

    There were quite a few school trips in still. I caught a teacher having a sneaky cig while her kids were on Galacticca. I will be interested to see what you think of the atmosphere. We thought it was so much better than last year
