We arrived about 11 and went over to DF where we waited about 25 mins each for Rita and thirteen (at this point I was worrying a bit how it was so busy midweek) Smiler had been showing 90min lines all morning on my phone app but once we did DF we headed over to the smiler at late lunch time and walked onto the Smiler, got off and walked back round to do it again! We either caught the end of some down time or everyone had gone off for lunch I dont know. By mid afternoon it was showing 60 mins.

I just wanted to leave but I was so close. Lucky I didn't. They handed out free Fastrack to us in the queue. I would want to say we queued about 2 hours 30 mins.

I've never had to queue for Stealth. For some reason i've always walked on it. I've been on it 3 times as well lol

Alton Towers aside, we queued for nearly 2 hours to go on Tidal Wave at Thorpe Park on a blistering hot summers day when I was about 7 or 8. That was...not fun...
It's funny how at the beginning of the season you can stay on Tidal Wave all day, but at the summer it has the longest que on the park. It always seems to have breakdowns during the summer as well, when they need it :p
