We had a FANTASTIC day yesterday, I would definitely go on opening day again - thanks to everyone for your help. Got on Thirteen just before it broke down, and went to the Smiler first thing, risky strategy but it paid off cos we only waited about 40 mins for it (and I think I saw TheSmilerMan legging it through the empty queue line well ahead of us as soon as it opened!). My only grumble was the loading on Oblivion, they were only loading one train at a time with 3 trains backed up waiting to be unloaded, leaving it with a massive queue.
I casually walked the first bit
but yes I was having a great jog through the queue line with the old crystal maze theme tune going through my head...love an empty queue line! Glad you had a great day.
