Duel's indoor queue is for better wheelchair access (also why there's the big ramp outside)
Agree with you there on cargo trousers (or cargo shorts if the weather’s warm enough), Matt. So useful around parks, though I do sometimes put stuff in my bag before boarding, depending on the ride. Only just had enough space in my small DSLR bag when I visited Energylandia in 2018 and went on Hyperion, where you HAVE to empty your pockets of anything that’s in them. I tend to take a more standard-size rucksack on parks anyway, so it’s not usually a problem. Don’t like wearing jeans at parks, as they can be problematic if going on water rides. Jackets with zip-up pockets can be useful as well.
Only one. Every other time I've lost one I got it back
Can you wear a bum bag across your chest on all rides at AT?
Does anyone know what time the Resort Box Office opens? Does it open at around 9 when the park gates open or later?
Are you still able to buy fast track tickets on the day?
Yes but they sell out mega quick
They're certainly selling this year. Platinum Fastrack is sold out for the first 5 days in September already.
Usually around 9 along with most of Towers Street if I remember correctly.
Perhaps that's the real reason why they won't update their crap opening hours until the last minute? People logging on knowing how busy it's been, seeing 6 hour days and scrambling to buy fast tracks to compensate
I have an AT resort stay coming up next weekend, are they doing ERT again now? I can’t find any details on the website.
They aren’t. Galactica gates open at 9.30am for hotel guests but all rides open at 10am for all.
Thanks. That’s a shame, any ideas why seeing that Chessington, for example is running ERT?
I don’t know for sure, but I suspect it’s a mixture of being able to save some cash on staffing, the issues they are having with recruitment in general and the fact they are easily flogging hotel rooms this year without needing to offer ERT as a perk.
Also they are now closing at 7pm so although it’s not exclusive time, the overall day is longer than it was 2-3 years ago
Even without the exclusive ride time you can get loads of rides in the morning if you head straight to the back of the park first thing.
Absolutely. If it’s a choice between early ride time or longer overall hours, I’m happy with the current set up.
No, any kind of bag will have to be put in the bag cage or lockers.
I’m unsure about across the chest but I often wear a bum bag across my waist on rides at AT.
If seen you should be made to remove it
