Lift hill - was surging/undulating on the first section of the lift hill, definitely felt as if the lift was struggling.
I noticed that, or something similar, during my last visit at the end of May.
It was as though the chain was speeding up and slowing down every few seconds, which was causing it to really bash against the guide trough. Pretty much everyone in the queue noticed it, and a few were commenting that ‘surely it shouldn’t do that’.
It wasn’t something I’d ever seen it do before, but as I’m not overly familiar with how GCI’s design their lift systems (Wicker Man is only the second I’ve ridden after Gwazi), I’m not sure if it’s normal.
