For me, the worst time I went to AT was recently on a school trip. i was in a group with me and about 6 friends. And oh my God it was so tedious.
As I was one of the only ones who had actually been to AT (many times), you'd naturally assume that my advice would be taken. Well, honestly, it wasn't (most of the time).
'Bring your own food' - one friend made sandwiches for everyone, I brought crisps and drinks for everyone, no-one else brought any and then complained at the high food prices.
'We'll do a variety of rides' - As two members of our group don't like big coasters, I suggested to go on some smaller attractions. The only rides those two went on were Hex and Duel. Me and one other also did go on Runaway Mine Train (which I used the Priority Pass for that I got off Wicker Man, more on that later)
'If we eat lunch while in a queue line, we can get on more rides' - This didn't even go noticed at all.
Now for some rants for which are more AT's fault:
The Skyride was closed due to the heat (which was a problem for me as I always take the Skyride to FV therefore we ended up a bit lost)
Oblivion was closed (my friends really wanted to go on this)
Wicker Man was stuck for about 20 mins with the other half of our group still on it.
Also, our group left at 4pm, the other school was there from 11-3, which in my opinion isn't enough time to enjoy yourselves properly.
Although, props for AT reducing prices for school trips, £5 is a much more reasonable price for a photo.
Right, that's my rant over, what was your worst AT experience?
