    In my experience early May weekdays are usually perfectly fine, as the nightmarish school trip season comes a bit later in the month. That said, The Smiler might throw a spanner in the works depending on the exact opening date. Even then I'd imagine that queues for everything except that won't be too bad.

    Yes, I went on it when it was at American Adventure too. Loved it as a kid. When I found out it was coming the PWH I couldn't believe it! One of my favorite childhood coasters in Suffolk? Bliss!

    Great news about ERT! Can't wait to use that on the second day (I doubt we will get there early enough on the first day.)

    Hahaha...!

    I could swear there always seems to be a suspiciously high number of school age children on park even during term time... :mad:

    So, I'm off for my trip to Alton Towers tomorrow. Can't wait. Not looking forward to the long drive (I've only been driving a year and it's my first drive longer than an hour,) but my excitment for the trip is going into overdrive.

    I'll be sure to post a trip report here when I get back. Shame I won't get to ride The Smiler, but will probably head back later in the year to ride it.
