This is interesting; I’ll keep an eye out on my next visit!
It was a fast moving queue too. Although the park was at pretty much the peak attendance it's ever achieved when it opened, there was no fast track so a very long queue moving fasterI never knew that sub terras queue used to be Nemesis queue! That explains how it used to get 3-4 hour queues as there's no way the current queue could hold that. Id be surprised if it took any longer than 90 mins with the current queue line given how good the throughput is

Yeah I enjoyed walking the left hand side these past 2 seasons and getting that different view across the pit. It's the right hand side blue bit I'd like to do again. Even if they did let us, it would involve going into Galactica's ride area so I'd imagine it would be mostly impossible now.Looking at the image, quite a bit of the original queue is still used, just accessed from the lift hill side not the loop/station side. I think it could easily hold a two hour queue and with fasttrack that could get up to three hours. I've waited almost an hour just using the first loop, add in the section to the right of the lift hill and it will get over two hours.
In this video from 2000, in the opening 20 seconds, you can clearly see the Nemesis extension queueline going through what is now Sub Terra's queueline from the monorail.
great footage. I can only imagine how long you would have had to have waited on opening day. Through all of nemesis extension queeliens as well as probably some extra.
We queued around 4 hours for it in 1994.
But it was worth it - the ride was so unique and groundbreaking- especially for Europe
I get them at the younger members of the community won’t get it, but this really was a special ride. It would be an engineering challenge now, but back then this was a real achievement.
I guess this is why people go on about the good old days on here. Alton then did truly push the boundaries - and I’d say they did right up until AIR openers.
Isn't the smiler the definition of pushing the boundaries. They fit 14 inversions in the space of an old tent
