And, where will it be released? On the main website or the forum?

It will be emailed out to all those attending. We'll let you know in this topic when it's been sent out so you can look out for it!

Sorry, I must have forgotten it is Nemmy's trains that hold 32 people. #-o

Still, what time is everyone doing The Smiler? I do like to do it earlier.


Nemesis holds 28 :-k

I count 8 rows...

8 x 4 = 32

Anyway, back on the topic of the #TTSummerSizzler please!

How many times will we be able to do Air in the exclusive ride time?

I would assume maybe about 3-4 times but I might be wrong.

Depending on how quickly you walk/run around, pre batching etc you'll get a fair few goes.

As the itinerary suggests, Nemesis and The Blade will be operating from 9am as Early Ride Time. You'll be free to use both attractions until Air opens exclusively for us at 9.30am. We can't predict how quickly other guests will arrive in the area. :)

Just checked the forecast:

Rain in the afternoon.

I assume it will be sunny in the morning.

Hopefully it will be wrong, but because of this, I would be tempted to do the rides with big queues earlier on in the day, possibly in the 3 hours before lunch.

You could easily do The Smiler and Blivvy in that time.

We won't be able to get an accurate weather forecast until a couple of days before the event, so I wouldn't read too much into any forecasts right now.

As Dan says, take it with a pinch of salt. You're welcome to spend your free time how you wish, or of course spend it with the main group. I imagine we'll just work in a circle as always.

So, do you mean go to Gloomy wood or KC after the Forbidden valley ERT's? By going in a circle I mean.

After flicking through the archives, I saw that virtually everyone had a picture of themselves on Oblivion. Will there be a ride which someone takes some photos of us on?

Hursty, who is one of the site photographers, will be the one who takes all the photos.

If you look through the photo albums from this years events you will see that there have been photos taken of us on numerous rides, I imagine Sizzler will be the same.

As for route round the park, like has been said numerous times before, we don't follow a set plan, just sort of go with the flow. But yes Gloomy Wood and Katanga Canyon is a possibility.

KC could be a problem as the rapids sometimes don't open until 11am. But the mine train would be open.

As stated before, there isn't nor will there be a set plan to go a around park, so no point in trying to organise it here as on the day it's just go with the flow as in no plan no we must go here now etc, but If you want you can plan with a small group of friends over pm or something :)

Not knowing where we are going is part of the fun. It makes the day that bit more fun, because it is just so random. Southern Screamer at Thorpe Park, we basically went all over the place and in many different directions. And as this is my first AT event where i plan on staying with the group the whole day, who knows.

I think I will stay with the group, if anything, just to get to know some of you better.

You all seem like really nice people. :D

Hi guys, tickets are on sale until midnight on Thursday so anyone still waiting to buy a ticket needs to do so by then.

We can't wait to see some old faces and meet some new ones along the way!

Itineraries will be sent out by email on either Thursday or Friday.
