I think AT did well for the queue considering they could have made it so much worse! The interactive games are goos fun if your with mates or children and it goos to watch the ride go over your head! also its a great photo taking oppertunity. But i admit it moves so slowly

yeah those grills have been like that for a while now it is a little disapointing as they are a key moment in the walkway, one o the only times you stop and look at the themeing! a fence would be good or they could just move the graves of the pathway and onto the side or something

Yeah I admit it is just amazing, but it's definitely not as good as Oblivion! I do think Nemesis is overated, because I think Rita is better than Nemesis. Good old nemmy is a bit boring considering it's the only ride in the park that hasn't got anything about it that is particularly special or uniqu...

I think it's great! The best thing about it is that its such a big shortcut, but then again it is quite fun just to pass through and look at the scenery and the views! Also it's good for families because the statues use comedy in their conversations to each other.
