    Alton Towers Trip Report - Tuesday 27th & Wednesday 28th May 2014

    Despite being the school holidays, Alton Towers was surprisingly quiet!
    The weather was forecast to rain all day on both days, however we didn't get more than an hour of rain on either day. I can only assume that the forecast put some people off visiting.

    We had a very enjoyable two days at the park, with very few faults and I was very impressed overall (as the visit last October had been very poor!)
    Most rides were on full capacity, and apart from The Smiler breakdowns were minimum.

    HIGHLIGHTS:
    - Single Rider Queues are very useful at the park and I wish Thorpe would bring them back!
    - Lots of re-rides on Nemesis!
    - Got on The Smiler more than expected (considering it was school holidays).

    LOWLIGHTS:
    - Four breakdowns on Smiler on the second day (only one on the first day!)
    - Skyride down until late afternoon on the second day
    - Courtyard BBQ was not up to it's usual standard, and the one at Thorpe is much better.

    NOTES:
    - Duel is looking past it's best, and I hope it sees some work over the closed season.
    - Staff weren't their usual cheery selves.
