Unfortunately not, It wouldn't be available in the public domain, unless someone has recorded a copy of the announcement whilst on park.

Does anyone know exactly where the drop-off point is, as I need it for an upcoming trip.

If you head up the road into the Resort as usual, and before you get to the big curve by overflow/traffic lights, there should be a sign pointing to Priority, Disabled and Drop Off zones :) there'll probably be a little queue going into it, halting all cars from moving.

Is that the car park right next to the entrance?

Is it worth taking a bag if you can only put it in the baggage areas? How often do people steal things?

Depends what you need to take with you.

We have our 6 year old with us, so we need a bag for snacks etc for her, and I like to have water/merlin cup etc with me. 

But I have zip up shorts/trouser pocket, so I keep my phone and cards/cash/car key on me on the rides. That way if the bag goes I'm not in big trouble. 

That being said - my bag has never been touched.

Anyone know how busy the park was today? I know it was horrendous yesterday, just wondering if it's quietened down any

Heading to Towers next Saturday from down South. 

I've only recently been, so it's not hugely desperate we get on all the coasters, but would be nice to. 

Wicker Man is my boy, so I am hoping for at the very least 2 rides on it. 

What's the best plan of action for getting the big rides done on a weekend with the least queuing? 

We'll have ERT as I have a PMAP, so that will take care of Wicker Man on arrival, then hope to get back to it again before the day ends. 

Should we head to The Smiler/Oblivion straight from there? Or head back to Nemesis? 

Rita is probably the one we're least fussed about, as it's pretty disappointing and over so fast. Plus I can get to Stealth very easily from home.

My plan that I follow is this:
9:30: Aim to be one of the first on Wickerman
9:55: Get to Nemmy for opening
10:10: Galactica, then walk through gardens to Dark Forest
10:25: Rita or Th13teen
10:45: The ride that's left in Dark Forest, then head over to x-sector to ride Oblivion and Smiler and that is your Big 7 taken care of! 

Then re-rides! 
Ride count since the beginning of 2015: 1653!
Ride count 2019: 501!
Cred count: 88!
