the waterfalls have been working on the 2 days i have been there this year but the oblivion mist was only on on 1 day

i aint happy about this 'reduced throughput' they are currently trying on 'off peak' days meaning nemesis ques have hit 210 minutes on certain days! this needs to be sorted!

Re: Nemesis removal

You only need to look at the things to see what state they're in.

Although i would love to see a woodie at AT if we are talking about a flagship ride i dont think that wood is the way to go as the general public see it as old and dated. a flagship ride has to be a world first or record breaker IMO

i agree, AT should not be getting rid of perfectly good rides, im not to keen on the new theme, but its still a good ride. the only time they should get rid of the flume is if they are going to build a better one. every theme park should have a log flume.
