A couple of weeks ago I was watching Oblivion and it stopped just before it actually hangs over the drop, was thankful i never got stopped there, thought it was something technical but it was someone with a camera, and slowed down the ride, took about 10 minutes. My friend took his camera on Nemesis...

Not really, got a bad headache after a lot of rides on Nemesis but i've never been sick after a ride. Went on this ride at Brean leisure park called Wipe out like 15 times in a row, and it went twice a go if you know what i mean, so they told us to go on other rides lol, did feel very bad after that...

wow, the world is just insane, what has it come to?

I hope they introduce them soon, it certainly makes sure you feel a lot safer. They have them at Disneyland Paris so I think they'll be brought into other theme parks. Well at least i think they should anyway.

The last time I exited Alton Towers, something hit the bottom of the damn bus and we were stuck there for 2 hours. They do need to resurface it.

Oblivion not for the fact that it's unthrilling, far from it actually, it's for the simple reason, it scares the s**t outta me and I've only been brave enough to ride it once! Others i'm fine with..

It's rained a lot of times whilst I've been there. Heavy rain forced Nemmy to close once.. been on Oblivion whilst it was raining. I don't think that many will close but sometimes the rides are 'uncomfortable' in the rain. I know Blivvy was!

I went on a normal weekend and queues were just as bad as school trips.

Air was about 120 minutes, Nemesis about 40 minutes, Oblivion 30 minutes, Rita nearly 180 minutes, it's insane.

I was planning a trip on 15th July but now I think I might skip it..

Gotta be Nemesis. Amazing ride, I just love it. It beats every other ride in the UK for me. After that it's Ripsaw, I adore this ride, it's great on a hot day and it's always fun to watch.

Rain was quite painful on Nemesis and my hair looked a right mess thanks to the rain but other than that i didn't mind. :P

Saw you on the games thingy, i wouldn't like to work on that all day, and even in the rain lol.

All of it! But probably actually getting on the ride more than most, because you have one final chance to turn back. Some rides don't bother me at all now, like Air, Nemesis.. but Oblivion and Rita always make me think twice about going on. The queue on Oblivion always freaks me out and I've turned ...
