    Both days busy with the Monday likely to be busier than the Sunday and full of school kids... Sunday probably won't go much above an hour queues (Smiler and Rita might hit 90 or more). The Monday could hit 90 all around. For the Monday get on park early as school trips don't generally get on park till 10:30-11

    If last Monday is anything to go by, then pretty busy. Probably 90-120 minutes for The Smiler at a minimum all day, and then 30+ minutes for Oblivion and Nemesis.

    Anybody know how busy it'll be a week tomorrow? I'm doing an overnight stay on the 18th/19th and am wondering if somebody could hazard a guess at the rough queue times of all the main rides? Sorry to be a pain, many thanks in advance! :)

    Generally week days are quiter but I would say a medium day, but expect to queue for the smiler. But it should be alright over two days. Have a good time :)

    Could anyone please let me know how busy you expect it to be tomorrow (27th June) with the NUT strike. Should i bother or can you recomend a day when you think it will be no more than 30 mins for the majority or rides.

    Thanks

    As for when the park will be quiet enough for below 30min queues, thats not guarenteed now until late September mid-week. Though the August holidays are very fickle and can sometimes be quiet.

    Busy as the Scottish School trips are in this week I believe and if the teachers are still on strike I'm guessing it will be busier than normal.

    Today was RAMMED.

    For anyone considering tomorrow if it is like today, expect queue sections of Nemesis you forgot existed, abhorrently slow Rita (if today was anything to go by), a poor chap had a fall on Th13teen which resulted in them closing the lot (assuming it will be open tomorrow, but looked like it had been closed for the rest of the day this afternoon) - which was also a shame because it was destroying queues as usual, and just a general sense of frustration, and irritation.

    Nemesis team as always on form, and The Smiler whilst busy again was running well, team really getting that ride down now. Probably the busiest I have known it on park for a long long time, though I do try to avoid the very high season, today felt busier than Smiler un-opening opening day!
