How many visits per year?

Sun Mar 12, 2017 10:14 pm

For everybody:
How many times do you all generally visit the park every year? When we had a MAP we went about 10/11 times but lived closer than we do now, mixed in with Warwick Castle.

With a MAP it was around 20 visits but now I'm without one I'll probably return to a singular annual visit.

I normally get around 1 visit a year and I like it that way as it seems better as I try to make use of the full day out getting on all the rides not just the coasters and thrill rides :D

Very impressive, that probably pays for the MAP in 3 visits. It's certainly good to be able to see a 2.5hr queue for something and think "I'll give it a miss and be back in a fortnight or so"!

Or, just get in the queue and think "I can do the rest another day!" :lol

Also, thanks!! I try to go as much as possible!!

I only visit the park for a weekend a year. Its the issue with being a southern who can't drive. Train is rather expensive

I normally visit 2/3 times a year being down south. However this year I already have 4/5 trips planned thanks to the MAP :)

Before I was married, about 10 years ago, I used to go at least once a fortnight. Maybe more often.

I got every other Friday off work, as I worked a weekend, so I'd head over on my own and use the single riders.

My maximum ride count was 31 rides, 18 of which were on Nemesis.

I'd use the single riders queue then jump of and run back around. I'd sometimes get back on the same train!

Now, married with children, I get about 3 or 4 times a year.

I like to try and get 3 in a year. I would love to do more but 3 times is more than enough for the rest of my family! Unfortunately I think I am only able to go twice this year meaning I have no more trips planned to go there again this season! :(

My sister doesn't go on anything, my dad's not keen and my mum thinks she's getting too old for it so I haven't been in 4 years! I'd get the train with friends but the schedule doesn't work. You'd have to go the day before and leave the day after.

I usually visit around 4 times a year, but I do two days at Scarefest on the fourth trip.
