    Also, I’ll reiterate what I said earlier and say that I don’t think the coaster queues generally seem too long compared to 2020, even with the park’s highest throughput ride in Nemesis shut!

    Is this the flat rides taking effect, or are crowd levels just low?

    the new flats must be having some impact, between them they've got a combined queue of 100 minutes, so that's 100 minutes worth of waiting not in a queue for an existing ride before this year! Nemmy is the only ride down now as well - starting the season as it ended the previous one!

    Do we think that these queue times might reduce even more once Nemesis is open?

    Spinball is currently on 40 mins, and was 50 earlier. Expected though as it has a low capacity.

    That still isn’t as high as it sometimes gets, though; I saw it on 60+ minutes at plenty of times last year!

    These times would be higher 100% if the Retrosquad hadn't been introduced because the people in those queues would have to be in the queue for something else if they weren't there.

    I'm not surprised that mixtape and funk'n'fly are doing well. They're better flats than Enterprise and blade realistically

    Can you compare the retro squad to Enterprise and Blade though? They’ve been open for one day, the other two for donkeys years.

    Enterprise still gets relatively big queue in the Summer, and rightly so, it’s an underrated fun ride I’d be sad the day it goes.

    Enterprise was at 50 minutes earlier today, proving it's still popular!

    But now you know you can avoid all (most) queue chat drivel, everyone’s a winner ;)

    I think I understand what you're suggesting but I am not sure the maths work out ... ?

    The people in the queues for the new rides aren't in queues for other rides is the basis. It can't be measured in minutes though, as throughput differ. So yes the maths doesn't quite work out, as a 20 minute wait for Mixtape is probably fewer people than a 20 minute wait for Oblivion. But even if that is only 50 people, it is still 50 people not in the other queues.

    Yeah I realise now it doesn't work out that way, it'd probably have been better for me to word it differently but you get what I meant!

    Good to see that mixtape is doing well. Not even 10:30 and it already has a 70 min wait! Yes these fairground rides will have very low throughputs but it's clearly getting plenty of people in

    Smiler at Capacity and Oblivion shut has contributed to it but even when all of X sector was open yesterday it seemed pretty busy. Just glad I'm going in October when it's not the English school hols meaning queuing shouldn't be a huge concern.

    On another note, Nemesis still showing as closed. Time to be worried?

    Never time to be worried! It'll open eventually. If it was closed all of yesterday its clearly a fairly big issue. It might open today it might not we'll see
