    I'm here now. It certainly is a quiet day and it seems to be getting quieter every day this week! I imagine the weather forecast for the afternoon has put people off

    Yeah I think Saturdays and Sundays will definitely be busier than the Fridays due to kids being able to visit

    11am and smiler still isn't open. Now I'm thinking I should start in FV!

    You should indeed, as Nemmy is on 0 mins atm. :)
    Rita is on 15, so that might be a good idea to get out of the way, although Thirteen is still closed as well.

    Has it been mentioned that you are overthinking this.

    Yeah I think FV is the least risky option to start with as if I go on Nemmy, Air and the flat rides, I should then be able to pop over to DF soon after and work my around that way.

    Wait until you see me IRL. Overplanning and anxiety through the roof!

    Just thought, have you ridden Gangsta Granny yet? It's currently on 0 mins, which it won't be for long.

    It was on 0 all day yesterday. I got straight on it. Much better than the previous 45 mins I waited for it

    The same thing happened last season, it was down for months and then re-opened around this time. It was doing pretty well until it went down back in July. Funk'n'Fly has been down for a couple of days again though.

    I imagine Enterprise was down because it was awaiting a part. These things took time even before Brexit and Pandemic related delays, so it’s not a surprise it took a while to get it back up and running again.

    Nice to see all rides having low/reasonable waits today!

    Smiler on 10 minutes right now. Looks like I picked the right week to go to AT! Cannot wait for Friday now.

    We all told you it'd be fine didn't we? Even if it's a little busier it's still quiet enough to get multiple re-rides on everything.

    I was on park today, and I can confirm that it was indeed rather quiet; possibly one of the quietest days I’ve had on park since before Wicker Man opened! Between 10am and 2:30pm, I got a total of 11 rides in!

    Operations were very good too; Thirteen was hitting 1,200pph, Wicker Man on 2 trains was hitting 820pph, and Oblivion on 4 cars/one station was hitting 633pph, which I thought was brilliant!

    To be honest, I think reducing capacity on some rides was fine given the crowd levels on park; had rides been on full capacity, I think the queues would have been non-existent in some cases!

    Oblivion and Galactica are always on 1 station on weekdays. Interesting to see that wicker man seems to be running 2 trains on weekdays too
