Solid 4 out of 5 star review from Ride Rater: http://riderater.co.uk/6835/review-wicker-man-at-alton-towers/

Re: Fright Nights

Hi - if a Saturday is a 10/10 in terms of busyness, could anyone please rank Friday and Sunday? I guess they would be a little quieter (the pricing certainly backs that up), but I was wandering if anyone could recommend a Friday over a Sunday or visa versa.

Their priority is preventing dangerous occurrences and they have don...
