On Monday 10/08/2020, the ride was closed all day. At the beginning of the day, it was expected to open within the first hour. I got speaking to some staff, and waited outside of the entrance for around 2 hours. Then because I hadn't ridden anything that day, I was allowed to go on Th13teen through the disabled entrance, skipping an atrocious 120m queue. I hung around Rita for another hour, and then I went to The Smiler, which I queued 45m for. Then I stayed in Dark Forest for the final 4 or 5 hours of the day, and actually a staff member let me have a free large plush toy which I gave to my sister. Rita never ended up opening that day, so I waited a total of more than 7 hours for it to open, but at least at the end of the day the Th13teen queue went down, and I got on it 2 more times. Once was a 2 minute wait, and the other time I let everyone past at the entrance so I could get last ride of the day. Only 5 guests were on that train, so a few staff members joined us. It was brilliant! Haha
I saw Rita roll back twice in one day. Not many people other than staff can say they've seen that before!
