    Was that an actual announcement? Have they stopped using “We are experiencing a temporary delay, and have ceased our ritual”?

    Ah, my apologies; I’m not very good at sensing that kind of thing, as many of you know by now!

    No; I’m genuinely not very good at that type of thing, sadly.

    I'm the same Matt, it can sometimes take me a little while to understand some things.

    I thought yesterday for how busy the park was the queues wasn’t that bad. Started the day on:
    Spinball 20 mins
    Mixtape the queue wasn’t that bad but it’s painful slow on loading/unloading and it didn’t help having 2 arms out of action and loading quite a few fast track guests 45 mins
    Enterprise was a bit better than mixtape but at times filled nearly half the ride with fast track guests 45 mins
    Flavio’s Fabulous Fandango this is the type of ride the park need to keep as it ate though the queue lines 15 mins
    Raj’s Bouncy Bottom Burp as they wanted to fill all seats my daughter jumped to the front of the queue 0 mins
    Driving school 15 mins
    Gangsta Granny on the app it was listed as 90 mins but my daughter really wanted to go on it but the queue was moving quite quickly and thought it was gonna go all around the inside of the building but only queued 45 mins
    Roller disco love the way they load this ride and was quite quick with loading and unloading 15 mins
    Sky ride down to Forbidden Valley 15 mins
    Funk and fly another painful slow load/unload of guests 45 mins
    The Blade as they were trying to load 4/5 guests per row 15 mins
    Duel 10 mins
    Runaway mine train 30 mins
    Marauder’s Mayhem 5 mins
    Heave Ho 0 mins
    Thirteen now on the app was listed 100 mins but only waited 60 mins
    Spinball 20 mins
    Wickerman 70 mins
    Didn’t think we get on this many attractions in 1 day and hopefully in 12 months time my daughter will hit the 1.4m mark.

    Not quite a busy as yesterday though. Hex has been closed all day so far and most of the day yesterday, so it's not looking good for tomorrow. :(
    sighs sadly

    Have you looked at the queue times? It looks even busier

    Yeah not sure what the deal is with Hex, gutted for you that the time you finally decided you wanted to ride The Smiler as well, and you're not going to be able to! It'll hopefully make your first ride next season worth the wait!

    Out of interest @Skyscraper, was Smiler your only “first ever ride” planned for tomorrow, or are there other coasters you’re yet to do?

    Yeah it's ironic and a real shame! I might be going on a March/April weekday next year, so will hopefully ride Smiler then if it's back open. :)

    Spinball is the other coaster I'm finally going to do which I haven't ridden yet. Can't wait to ride it after really enjoying Spinning Racer! :D
    Still not sure about Rita though...

    Spinball can be on the jolty/rough/painful side so just make sure you brace yourself!

    Yep it’s by far the roughest coaster at the park and it’s much more thrilling / intense than it looks! It’s a really fun ride though.
