    The park should be much quieter in September once all the kids go back to school, so I wouldnt expect either of them dates to be busy. Sundays are usually more quiet than Saturdays.

    It's likely to be a busy day but the atmosphere is always good, plan to get there for opening and leave after ride close to maximize your day.

    Normally alright the major dates are the few days around the actually date, but it's the main TST meet on the 20th

    We're thinking of going on either Monday 22nd or Tuesday 23rd. Hoping it'll be reasonable. Any ideas?

    It will be the calmest the park will be over Scarefest but this year some schools are on half term that week rather than the following week so it probably won't be dead.

    On the app, I didn't see the queues go above 30 mins at the most so it shouldn't be too busy. ;D

    Me and the missus have just been for two whole days and the biggest queue we saw was rita which was around 40 minute wait. More rides even in the nights were walk on.

    For anyone going this week and wanting to use yesterday as an example of queue lengths, we didnt queue for any ride more than 10 minutes except Air because they had to add "the third craft?". N-ST was walk on most of the morning, 25 mins around lunch then down to 5 from 4 onwards. Nemesis, as far as I could tell was walk on all day, as was 13. Rita had the smallest I've ever seen. I would guess this will follow for the next 3 days!

    Can anyone enlighten me as to how busy it will be this coming Sunday 28th October? I know it will be busy but a rough estimate of queue times would be appreciated as I don't own iOS or Android devices to download the app.

    Many Thanks :)

    Its impossible to give queue times as it depends on how well a ride is running. That said, I would expect most rides to be very busy.

    I'd expect most of the big queues to be hitting 60minutes+ during the bulk of the day as it is peak Scarefest season :)
