SmilerLover wrote:I think mine might be the longest. I queued for 4 hours for Rita, and then after 4 hours, Rita broke down. I didn't even get to go on. If it hadn't broken down I probably would have queued for another hour. As I say, I think mine might be the longest.

Did you get some form of money back on your day there?

2 hours for the smiler and 2.5 for air in 2012. A bubbly 30 mins my butt. I did enjoy it as it was my first thrill coaster. I remember it breaking and having 1 hour testing, greAt for a young thrill seeker.

At Towers? Can't remember.

Outside of Towers? 3 hours for Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts. I usually buy fastpasses at parks but Universal Express was like £100pp.

I honestly think I queued for up to two hours to ride Hex. Two hours of my life I never got back and to this day still hate Hex for the huge queues when it first opened and AT for keeping the ride a secret. The disappointment of the ride being dreadful didn't help matters. ](*,)

The chained oak will get its revenge on you... :lol just joking, it's your opinion but I wouldn't queue more than ten minutes for any flat at alton again, 30 minutes for hex was bad though.

Can't remember the exact time but it did feel like an age when queueing for Hex when it first opened. Though to be fair I found the videos and suspense of the secret very interesting when I was younger so didn't feel as bad as some other rides.

Between 2 and 3 hours for the Haunted House when it was new. The queue came way out of the graveyard.

I've got a new one after today. Nearly 3 hours for The Smiler, it was advertised 90 mins but it was more than that, then it decided to brake down twice when we were about to get on.

At Towers, it would be Rita, at 45 minutes.
At Thorpe Park, Colossus, at 150 minutes (times board claimed it was 90 before I unknowingly entered the queue... I was alone, without my phone or anything. Worst 150 minutes of my life.).
And as for Chessington, it's Vampire, at 120 minutes (times board claimed it was 45- a girl working at Bubbleworks later admitted to us that it she had forgotten to give it a much needed update).
