Back at Alton today and have been told that Rita 'is unlikely to open today' by the guy at the entrance.


He was right....

Other rides were, sporadically, open.  So a better day than yesterday!

So, currently unavailable is Rita, Wicker Man and Congo River Rapids. 

Edit: Wicker Man is available again.

Edit 2: Rita now back open as well.

Should I be worried? Looking at booking a trip for May 10th - 11th.

There should be no need to worry about ride availability. There is no way to predict what will be open or if rides will suffer downtime throughout the day.

Today was good for ride availability. Wicker Man only went down once or twice all day, and Oblivion closed once. Apart ftom that, I think all the other coasters were open all day!

I wouldn't stress too much - I'd been reading about the dire operations at the park for the past month and when I got there this week, everything was absolutely fine! Wicker Man went down a few times but I never waited more than 20 minutes. The Skyride got stuck a couple of times but that's nothing new.

Looks very very quiet today. Interestingly, Hex is closed at the moment.

If it's been down all day, they might be fixing the bars in bay 1 of the front row left side.

Makes sense to do any maintenance work on a quiet day like today though. Hopefully back open tomorrow!

It's that a possibility? That it was kept closed because it was so quiet?

I guess it could be a two day job. So closed today, and more work done tomorrow when the park is closed maybe

It was VERY quiet yesterday (woohoo!) - the only downtime I saw was Nemesis for about 20 mins and Wicker Man for about 15 mins. Gutted Hex was closed as I love it!

Galacita,13 and Oblivion are all down, not looking good today. All queues are ridiculous.
