    I think they all do except Oblivion and Spinball.
    Galactica does if you end up queuing over the bridge or if you count the steps in the exit.

    Oblivion does have some surprisingly steep ramps though.

    I suspect the issue is the steps on Wickerman are mostly around the back of the site and not that visible from the entrance, whereas you can see the steps on Nemesis etc from the ride entrance.

    Hey if it helps people who have some mobility issues but are happy not using a RAP pass then it’s fine by me.

    But people might see that sign and decide to get RAP.

    Yeah I can see why they have done it. On the face of it it shouts "H&S gone mad" but when you think about it it is sensible to have the sign so those who are mobile enough to walk but not necessarily able to do a lot of steps can make a decision.

    I guess it's "H&S gone mad" when we see plans of the queuelines on the ride info boards with land contours and elevations above sea level quoted!

    I am confused.

    What would happen if people cannot navigate 8 steps in a queue line but then are required to evacuate from the top of a lift hill?

    It's more about having to walk more then is required, I know of a few people who could walk down a lift hill but would be in pain after.

    I guess in the case of the Wicker Man, the lift hill is a slope not steps

    At least it's been themed properly and isn't the usual unthemed bodge job they do when adding new signs to an existing ride/area.

    Wicker Man throughputs today were nothing short of superb.

    I don't think the Wodan team could have done much better.

    I second this, pretty solid consistency of a train hitting the lift as or just before the previous train hit the break run.

    For my money, Wickerman, Nemesis, The Smiler and Galactica have been great this year operations wise. Credit where Credit's due.

    Real apparently. It opened late as the screens weren't working.

    Blue Screen Of Death. The PC that runs the fire animations on them did a Windows update overnight and it never restarted properly
