If I was you, do dbgt at the end of the day as a final ride.

Coaster wise start on saw/ colossus before doing inferno/ stealth. Maybe do X at this time. Later on in the day, in late afternoon do swarm.

Alright thanks, I suppose I'll have to see how queues are. I'm there for 2 days, so I should get on (if it even opens). The weather for Thorpe doesn't look good on those days either, hopefully that puts people off.

Yes, and the queue was evacuated at some point around this time with people getting fastracks. Either you got on it just after it reopened or before it closed.

Did anyone managed to get some Summer Nights tickets? Wasn't lucky enough, but would love to go if anyone has some spares. :(

EDIT:
Nevermind, just got a confirmation for a ticket!

Good to see you're sorted. I managed to get one, so I'm pleased!

It is going to be a good night!

It is worth checking your 'Spam' folder as some emails have been found in here.

Nope I already checked that, it would be nice if they let you know regardless, it seemed the emails have gone out fairly slowly but I'm thinking it's too late now but I'm kind of still left waiting, my brother will be gutted too!

EDIT: Confirmation has finally arrived, that's a slow process!

Does anybody know what's happening with stealth, it seems to be having a lot of downtime at the moment.

According to some other forums it's something to do with the launch cable. Supposedly it's getting replaced.

For an event that built a reputation for being really quiet, yes it is.
