A practically shameful 68,400!

It was a very quiet day with no one on carts before or after us!

My highest was 27,000 if I remember correctly (I know it's a bit crap, but I don't often use the guns any more). :)

I intend to beat my personal best when I go back in September for my annual trip, maybe even before that if I get chance

Quick question chaps, hope you can help!

Was on park on Bank Holiday Monday when it was so quiet, but so cold (hence Wicker Man not opening all day) - so I’m off back this coming Saturday with the family.

My question: I purchased a 2 for 1 ticket on the gate (me and my mate paying £27.50 each) yet the ticket states valid until the the end of November 2018? Does this mean the ticket is still valid falling into the realms of the 'Season Pass' promotion, or has this now become invalid after being used to enter the park once already?

Cheers!

If the barcode has been scanned then it will be invalid.

It may be worth taking the ticket to admissions and asking if it is possible to upgrade to a Season Pass, although this usually has to be done on the day. You'll have to pay the difference, but it may be worth it if you are visiting again. You have nothing to lose, especially if you are using 241 vouchers.

Some horrendous queues at Alton today (hence why they're shutting at 6). Wickerman on 200, Big Six between 80-120, even The Blade is on 30 mins :O - glad I went in the snow/rain :lol

Anyone know what's happening with the RMT? I don't think I've seen it open at all yet this season.

 Oh god.. another ride having problems.. is there any ride which hasn't been unavailable at some point this season already?? 
Surprisingly Galactica seems to be running pretty well... strange... :-k  :lol

And Runaway Mine Train is back with a 25 min queue. :)
Lol. It's down again :lol
And so is Wicker Man. Seriously. They better get this mess sorted out soon.
Spinball Whizzer and The Smiler are now also down in addition to Wicker Man. RMT back available again though. 

And Wicker Man is back, with an instant 120 min queue! 

Spinballs back now too. And as if by magic, Galactica has decided to cease operation!
Galactica now operating again. Just The Smiler unavailable now.

Except not now. Rita has also become unavailable in addition to The Smiler. This seriously is not good.
