Re: Th13teen - General Discussion

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

There were 4000 guests on park on Saturday, which may seem a lot, but the park areas were quiet.

Ride queues were still sizeable due to the understandably longer processes in place, and reduced availability on each coaster train.

It was only The Smiler and Wicker Man that was over an hour I believe.

Sadly, Chris (L) has now left the team.

No, but then it's down to the parents to educate them about the reason why.

Re: Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Walt Disney World in Orlando have announced the phased opening of the theme parks from July 11th.

I wonder why they need so much more time than Universal and SeaWorld which are opening in early June?

This is fine if the park was fantastic at keeping things loo...
