What would you guys say has the longest queue line in the park
Yeah I'd agree, I definitely think Wicker Man's is the shortest, and I thought Galactica's was the longest just off the top of my head so maybe that source is accurate.In fairness, if we’re excluding extensions, I’d imagine that WM’s queue line is actually surprisingly short compared to the others. You’ve only really got the one little switchback section within the first big turnaround, and then it’s mostly a gradually curving straight from there, with the odd set of steps here and there. It’s actually not that long, if you think about it; I think all the steps make it seem longer than it is. I’d imagine that the 100m figure also excludes the pre-show area, which makes a difference.
While I do think the 100m figure seems oddly short relative to the others, I certainly wouldn’t say it’s out of the question, and I don’t think Wicker Man has the longest queue at Alton by any stretch; at a guess, I’d easily say that Thirteen, Rita and Smiler are noticeably longer, at very least, as those have a surprising maze of cattlepen within them. Thirteen’s entrance is also a very, very long way from the attraction boarding point.
Except for Galactica, which must be on 1 train currentlyBesides, GG is only on 50 minutes at the moment; I’d imagine the effects of less children at the park will begin to be felt when it comes to GG’s queue time! I think only a few areas have half term this week, so next week, the crowd levels at GG should be even lower!
You know what, queues are looking pretty good today given that some schools are still on half term (apparently)! Only Thirteen and Smiler are currently even hitting an hour; both of those are on 60 minutes! The next highest after that is Gangsta Granny on 50 and then WM and In the Night Garden on 45!
Given that the park’s been open for an hour and this is what crowds are like, I’m feeling cautiously optimistic about crowd levels for my 28th June visit!
