Not so much how busy the park will be on a particular day, but what order to do the rides in.
From everyone else's experiences, what's the best route around the park, with rerides and shortest possible queues? Obviously this depends on the day and a lot of it is down to chance so there isn't really a set best route, but I just want to see from everyone else's experience
On an average-weathered May/June weekend, my order is generally (arriving 9:30am):
Stealth - On a quiet day you can almost walk straight on the front row!
Saw & Colossus (either way around)
Zodiac (if the queue's reasonable)
The Swarm (it's dead at lunchtime)
Anything in Angry Birds Land that's on a low queue (cinema & Detonator usually)
Rerides on anything on a low queue, especially NI and Stealth (if I have time)
Then in the last couple of hours or so:
I'm a Celebrity if I can be bothered
Rumba Rapids (sometimes)
Stealth rerides if it's quiet
The Swarm rerides
I know this is not completely perfect. For example, Nemesis Inferno is probably not the best ride to do second, but it's on the path between Stealth and Saw and it'd be rude not to when the queue's usually in the station. Riding water rides at the end of the day is really dependant, I'd advise against Tidal Wave at 5pm in March/November.
