    Queues seem somewhat low for a Saturday? Obviously most things have queues but they're not outrageously bad like they have been?

    To some extent I would think that's because they have so many shows running.

    I thought this might be the case!

    Don't forget that compared to every other weekend this season, there are now 10 other rides/attractions/shows now open.

    They've finally decided to shut th13teens queue when it reaches capacity rather than letting it spill out

    How accurate are queue times on the app at the moment? They definitely seem to be longer than what I would usually expect for non-school holiday midweek days.

    Yesterday I would say The Smiler’s advertised wait time of 60 minutes was accurate, however Wicker Man was advertised at 50 and we waited 30 due to consistently fantastic train dispatch times. Most other rides advertised between 20-40 and I’d say they were more or less accurate. It is easier to predict queue times on a weekday as there is far less fastrack and RAP in particular.

    Where did you queue an hour from? Just so I have an idea of how long the queue is

    Close to the entrance stood underneath the marmaliser screen, with the caveat that there was less fastrack and very little RAP.

    It could end up varying depending on RAP and fast track though so you could in theory wait substantially more than 60 minutes.

    Yesterday I thought the queue times app was pretty good +/- 10 mins. It’s not going to be 100% accurate but it certainly gave us a decent estimation how long to queue during the day.

    Ah I see. Its normally 90 mins from there at weekends so it shows what difference fastrack and RAP makes

    I don't believe that for one minute that's impossible

    Ethan is probably right to be fair, it will be around 90 with the fast track and RAP influx I'd imagine.

    I queued 100 just outside the entrance in the extended queue, so I'm assuming it only took 10 mins to go down the stairs and under the marmaliser

    Are they running Galactica on a stupidly low capacity? There's no other reason for it being on 70 minutes currently, particularly when the two flats in the area are walk on and Nemesis is on just 5 minutes.

    Galactica was on 2 trains 1 Station like usual when I was there earlier today. They may have put it down to 1 train temporarily but I doubt

    I think how much busier it's getting justifies it being on 3 crafts 2 stations, especially when it's getting up to 70 minutes.

    For those visiting soon, I seem to have figured out the accuracy of the advertised queue times of the coasters.
    Understated:
    Smiler
    Galactica
    Fairly accurate:
    Wicker man
    Th13teen
    Rita
    Overstated:
    Oblivion
    Nemesis
    It has always been the case that nemmy and oblivion are always normally overstated

    I plan on getting The Smiler, TH13TEEN, Rita, Galactica and Nemesis hopefully done in the first 70-90 minutes on Friday so can hopefully avoid The Smiler and Galactica's understated times.

    EDIT: I've seen Oblivion hopping between an advertised 30 and 50 minutes all day - did you manage to figure out what it's actual wait is?
