Sounds about right.

:O :sick: How?

The protocol for basic cleaning of the queues seems to be for the ride-ops to do it as part of the ride shutdown process in the evening. Long days and the hot weather and I can see that job not being done properly. A sad lack of care from management, who coincidentally are often the only people frequently walking around the park with litter pickers. Maybe they should be made to walk the queue lines daily.

It is positive to see that some areas of the ride have been jet washed. Hopefully this is just the start of a much needed clean of the ride and surrounding area.

That photo is absolutely shocking, Dan.. :sick: It's shocking just how bad some areas of that queue really are!

Will be sure to channel thoughts of installing flat rides, reinstating SRQs, and longer opening hours on my next visit ;)

Please do :lol

I think they should close the ride for a day and give everything a deep clean, jet wash and repaint. I don't go often to AT, and I was surprised at how shabby and how much the exit queue line needed a repaint as well.
