Apparantaly Sky News just said that the roof of the skyride station is still on fire and 3 engines on site. They are trying to contact someone at the park for further updates.

They said park is open as normal tomorrow.

I agree, we should see a permanant show with regular actors, and brilliant themeing, just like in American parks. Even if it was in the 3D Cinema or another building sitting empty, I'm sure it would attract the guest. I think the entertainment should also include interaction between staff and guests...

We did both Air and Nemeis in XRT and not in the day, so we thought we will make more use of Air since it usually has bigger queues than Nemesis in the day. During the day, the queues on the boards were 25 mins for Nemesis and 30 for Air although when we looked the queue for Air was right up the hil...

Well there was loads of people around the park, but queues didn't seem too big. We did tend to go to rides that had short queues though, I can remember seeing The Flume at 70 mins at one point!

Everyone must have been queueing in Cred Street McDonalds I think! :lol:

Unfortunatley, didn't take my camera :cry: . My phone got drenched on the flume as well :evil:

It was the Cred Street McDonalds. The staff were taking ages!

The queues suprised me as well, thought it would be much busier.

When you order online, it has to be manually transfered to AT's system from Maddam Tussauds in London. I had a right game with my annual pass. So in the end, they just put me in separatly on both systems, so I've got two different membership numbers for each system :D I only use it at AT though so I...

I hope John Wardley buys the park from money grabbing Tussauds!

Failing that TTF could start a PayPal collection now, and in 2030, you never know! :D
