Re: Wicker Man General Discussion

Thu May 17, 2018 9:02 pm

Was on site today, Wicker Man was running extremely well today, even for a mid week day the queues were extremely low. 

Entered the queue today at 3:50 to get a last ride in, unfortunately the ride ceased operation around 4:10 due to technical difficulties. When the ride was stopped, the chain lift had also stopped implying something more than a temporary delay compared to normal. By 4:25 we were evacuated out of the queue and give priority passes. First ever queue evacuation for me but obviously something more than a simple fix was needed, hopefully it is running ok tomorrow and over the weekend.

Shame it went down at the end of the day. Was running well today.

I did notice a couple of long waits on the brake run. Definitely caused by restraint issues on the train that was loading. I saw a couple of larger park guests doing the dreaded walk of shame today because the restraints wouldn't go down.  Later on I saw one of them also having to disembark Oblivion for the same problem

I got on it today, was working well apart from the big fire effects when you go through the ride, which was a shame. Preshow was as good as ever though.

I went on Thursday and I am here today, ridden it 3 times. All three times my restraint only had to click once and the train went, however when I first went on it a couple weeks back it needed two clicks. So hopefully more people will be able to ride on this comfortably/at all!!
