Re: Theme Parks for August

AT is alright as long as you go on weekdays. Most of the kids are in Cbeebies land so the longest queue I was in was half an hour for the Smiler and Nemesis.

Re: The 'How busy will it be?' Topic

Is there any day in the next two weeks you think the park will be at its quietest. Thinking of going but can't decide when. I don't want to go when there's school trips in so thought of waiting till August when all schools are shut, but the park will be quite busy, but then I thought maybe going on...

Re: So I'm in London on Saturday

If you are in London then it'll be easier to go to the Natural History Museum and it is cheaper but Thorpe Park is out of London so the travel costs are higher and then you have the price of the tickets. If you like thrills I suggest Thorpe Park instead of Chessington.

Re: The Smiler - General Discussion

Sorry for going off the discussion topic right now, but on the 28-29th of September there is a discount for all youth groups (Scouts, Guides etc) so I would expect more people there with the discount as the explanation.
