This is a great way to ride Oblivion. With a bit of space between yourself and the restraint you can virtually float down the drop, it's an amazing feeling which I would recommend to anyone!

However, I concur with those mentioning the mist on Oblivion! I have never experienced it mist all the way through the tunnel, only on the entrance, but it's a whole different experience with it on!
Speaking of steam / mist, I've never been on RMT with the smoke machine on the tunnel exit, and also in Th13teen, with the distinct sweet smell of a smoke machine!
Do AT usually sell Alton Towers branded clothing, without Scarefest or Fireworks logos? I'm looking for a hoodie / t-shirt with just the logo on, but have only come across special event branded items?

I wonder if this is the same woman that me and the other half saw complaining. We had got on nemesis, were sat waiting for ages questioning why we were waiting so long but noticed a woman speaking to a ride op.
All we heard was the ride op say that he was responsible for the ride that day and would write down his name for the woman, thought nothing of it for a bit then nearly wet myself when I heard " well he was clinging on for dear life, he almost fell out"
I couldn't pick up and all of the conversation, but did overhear the ride op mention how the restraint has so many different settings when it locks in place and if her son had pulled down to hard forcing it to close to him then it would just have lifted to the next setting and locked in place. Made sense to me as I have done this before. Got on, pulled my restraint down as close to me as I could and kept rattling it, only for it to lift up and release the whole rows restraints. I thought it was funny though as at the time all I kept thinking was I hope it don't do that again when we are moving I havn't rattled my restraint since.
The woman in question moaning though was of the, lets say without being rude........chav variety. It might not be the same woman but the story sounds very similar, only if it is the same one then the account of the staffs attitude is far from the truth and her son didn't exactly look petrified. It might not be the same one as the woman I saw as she only had 1 lad with her.
EDIT: After seeing a picture this is not the same woman I saw.
