    Yeah if it's really windy I'd expect Big One and Flying Machines to definitely be shut, and maybe Ice Blast and Infusion too.

    @Matt.GC . Went on Sun 14th Nov and the place was dead (big queue to get in thou). Managed to get all 9 roller coaster done in about 2hrs even thou everything was on 1 train and waited 15+mins for Avalanche to be repaired.

    Icon had longest queue but never exceeded the buildings exterior at its longest. Also the front row queue was at worse an additional train wait. Big One, Revolution & Infusion were walk on or wait in the air gates for train to return. Worse queues were Steeplechase, Big Dipper and any family orientated flat rides. Last 20mins of opening we managed to get on Big One, then Infusion (nephews fav ride, sorry) and get into Icons queue with 5mins to spare :D.

    I was skeptical about weekends as well, but took the gamble that in Nov not many would venture out to the coast on a Sunday during term time. Otherwise, Unless I have an annual pass, no way am I going on a weekend normally!

    Extra tip. Don't take food, they don't allow you into the park if you have pack lunch with you :mad:.

    Rumours from a distant tyke that the Big One will be closed for the rest of the season anyway, but no chance this weekend.
    Poor weather forecast, so expect the place to be deader than dead.

    Just a reminder that this is Alton Towers Quick Questions, not BPB Discussion. Thanks. :)
