    Nice to see that WM's queue has gone down to 70 minutes. :)

    EDIT: it has gone down to 60 now!

    Anyone else think the station smells vaguely of tinned sweetcorn?

    The ride is running a lot better today; queue line is currently to the shop and dispatches aren't exactly infrequent.

    I went on it for the first time today, queues up again right at the air gates and a restraint got jammed and we were evacuated also I agree it smells like sweet corn in the station and first thing this morning it was slow but later in the day when I rode it I was shocked as I got second to back row really impressed

    You lot should have come down to Smiler, we got three goes on the go (if you saw two people sitting on the floor in the Wickerman rap queue around that time who disappeared, that was us, we decided to go to Smiler, glad we did). Wickerman is good, but not that good.

    So it smells of a mix of sweetcorn, cabbage and tomatoes.

    Sounds like a meal for simple folk.

    Given that our modern food does not please the wicker man, that makes sense actually.

    If they are using smells in the station for basic food stuffs, then they have really gone to town on the experience planning and execution.

    I thought I smelt something but wasn't sure if it was just my mind playing tricks on me.

    Either way if it's smell packs thats good and if it's so immersive that's it's possible to think there's a non existent smell that's also really good

    I was wondering about the smell in the pre show. If it was a smell pod or a room full of wet people that was making the damp smell.

    Consider yourself lucky RoyJess, I have just finished a house clearance of an elderly lady customer.
    Driving with the car windows open all the time.

    The thing with smell pots is that they can be very subjective. I've used some in the past and had them been described simultaneously as Pizza, Roast Dinner and Cakes...

    Truth was they'd been broken for years :p all anyone had really been smelling was the left over residues still in the pot.

    The one thing i am wondering. How long is it going to keep the bag room?
    I hope as long as it is popular.
