    I've touched on this topic before but what is the best order to do the coasters to minimise queues as much as possible

    Don't follow the crowds. Get into the park as Early as possible. Do all the coasters first before lunch and then the rest of the park afterwards. I never have a particular order or will post one, otherwise if everyone read this thread and follows a particular order, then it won't be feasible, far better if the crowds disperse by following their own order.

    No, that's his identical twin. He'd never be seen outside smiler. He's busy using the VIP entrance.

    Arrive for ERT - Wicker Man first. Then Oblivion, Rita, Thirteen, Galactica, Nemesis, Katanga Canyon. Should manage all of that by midday. Bite the bullet and queue for Smiler and Spinball in the afternoon. They usually start out with long queues but have relatively shorter waits later in the day.

    Hi, unsure if this is the correct topic for this but I have an interview for ride operator in a few weeks, has anybody been through this process before that could offer me any tips? Also what’s the best option for accomadation for staff? I can’t find much info online, would be great if someone could point me in the right direction.

    Just be yourself and answer the questions honestly. If you're not sure about something then it's best to be open rather than try to blag it. Also remember you're applying for a job so they'll want to ensure you understand that and you don't think it'll just be a jolly (some people do... I can assure you it's nothing like visiting).

    I'd expect questions along the lines of:
    • how would you deal with difficult or rude guests
    • how would you deal with an emergency or unusual occurrence
    • how would you keep focused (e.g on quiet days or when doing monotonous tasks)
    I was also asked a bit about what I knew of the park, its history and its owners. Also, being passionate is good but if you're obsessed with coasters or rides then don't be too enthusiastic :)

    There’s more chance of Charlie reopening.
