I don't understand how the smiler is so high though. Isn't it's capacity like an hour? Maybe it's fastrack idkIn fairness, this is the sort of time where everyone’s just entering the park and starting to get into the queue for rides, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the queues go down a bit later.
I remember Wicker Man’s queue was initially quite high yesterday, but went down as the day progressed.

Not in advance though, remember. It's only available on the day via the Box Office or app.They're selling the packages aswell as solo for fastrack this year. So more fastrack this year
Yes it is daft. It's a rip off aswell
It is a rip off if the only way you can have a decent day out is by paying for Fastrack.If people are willing to pay for fasttrack, why would it be a rip off? People are free not to pay for it.
I am not sure it’s the best circumstances to sell it in on rides that can’t fill all seats. But if people are willing to pay those prices it’s not a rip off.

The overselling of Fastrack was bad enough before Covid kicked off, but with all the extra faff involved it's going to be next to impossible to have a decent day out without it.
You're right, nobody has to pay it, but it's getting to the point where the alternative of not doing so isn't really worth it.
That's a good point. Don't think people will be put off by 90 minutes though. If people are willing to wait that for wicker man then I'm sure they will for the smilerThe solution to that is less fastrack sold at a higher price, not cheaper fastrack for everyone.
In terms of Smiler, there's an argument that if they don't have enough queue space for it then just sell more fastrack so the full queue takes longer to try and deter people from joining it. I'd rather have a fast moving queue but if they're constantly having to close it on account of running out of space then it makes sense to try to solve that issue whilst raking in £££ at the same time.
