I Couldn't find this so I thought i'd post my views... ( sorry if its hidden somewhere in the forum
Went to Thorpe Park a couple of weeks ago to discover the new queuing system 'Reserve N Ride'
At first I was like 'aye??' so some Thorpe dude explained it all and awkwardly tried to scan something that wasn't working and it all seemed a bit glitchy, however it finally worked and we reserved Nemesis Inferno.
A mere 45 minutes later (and a ride on Stealth) we were allowed to go through the fast track entrance and straight on the ride. What a result!!! lets keep reserving rides!
SO WE DID.
Colossus was running a one train operation and had a horrendous queue so I thought Id reserve it (but im stupid so didn't take into consideration this would still affect my waiting time)
We 'virtually' queued for 1 hour to then join the back of a very long fastrack queue ... which would then equal to an additional 40 minutes!
This was what felt like the hottest day of the year, we were all very hot, bothered and dehydrated, but we made it, we finally made it to the front of the queue.. yes this was it... we were going to ride the amazing 10 looped coaster.
Until, It happened.... an announcement, one I did not what to hear. One stating the ride we had been waiting forever for had ceased operation.
We stumbled away through the fire exit, fast pass in hand, given to us due to the 'inconvenience caused'
Then, we went home.
The moral of the story - great idea, but needs some more thought put into it?!
