Re: The Future of The Flume

Re: What could AT have done which could have increased the queue times?

The last time I went to Alton Towers on the 17 & 18th of August all queues were less than 15 minutes (exept Sub Terra, Spinball, Rita and Air which are always the longest queue times)

Re: The Future of The Flume

To be honest just get rid of it, it looks really gross and dirty and even if it got a 3rd re-theme (which is highly unlucky in my opinion) it will just get grotty again.

Re: Merlin Cut Backs

Re: Whats your favourite Queue-line video?
