I might go for a controversial Ripsaw! Meh, but chances are probably Air. I'd like to pick and choose my first rides but I'm waiting to here what ERT will be on first.

During the half term hullabaloo my first ride was Air, but i'm sure Battle Galleons will be my first port of call during the main season....

I'll probably head over to FV first of all, so probably Nemesis.

In half term my first ride was Nemesis, but when the park fully opens on the 15th, I think I will most likely be striate over to Battle Galleons.

Work my way around the park,
checking on queue times.. even though there rarely correct.

Not sure which one yet but either Nemesis, Air or Battle Galleons. I usually start with Air and Nemmie but with Battle Galleons that could all change this year. :)

I usually hit the newest ride first if it's a big one.

So (even though battle galleons is the newest) i will head for Rita Queen of Speed.

Loving the use of onomatopoeia there! Generally, I head for the newest ride, but it depends on what it is etc. Otherwise, I head for Air or Nemesis; get the queues out of the way, break myself in gently- I am always so hyped at the beginning of a day at AT that I feel sick, so Rita and Oblivion are not good ideas first thing...

its usually spinball for no other reason than it gets too bloody busy later on in the day.

I like to save nemesis for a little later savour some towers atmosphere before riding my favourite. Cant believe shes entering her 14th season and i have had the chance to ride in every season (now im getting sentimental)

probably do Rita early to avoid the queues too.
