I'm from the forest too and I'd hardly say it's bucketing it's just a little drizzle but yeah hopefully it won't be much busier when I go next week.I don’t know that it’s exactly a ghost town today… 3 coasters (Smiler, Rita and Galactica) are on 60, with Wicker being on 55 and Spinball being on 50.
Nemesis on 30 is pretty quiet, though, and Oblivion on 10 is practically deserted… particularly when Smiler is on 60. I know Oblivion has a somewhat higher throughput than Smiler, but surely a few extra pph on their own wouldn’t reduce the queue by 50 minutes compared to Smiler?
Perhaps the weather might be playing a role today? I don’t know what Alton is like, but it’s bucketing down with rain here in Gloucestershire…
EDIT: Scratch that, Oblivion’s now 30… must have been an understated queue time.
