Some of theses food buildings have been build in poor places. The 1 on Air is 2 close to the ride station&13 as well. As there no way you could drink a hot drink by the time you get on the ride. I think on the flume&the rapids the queue doesnt get a queue as far as where the shop is unless it's a very hot day so most the time it was closed. When I went 2 weeks ago. The shops on the rapids,13,Rita were closed. Not sure about Spinball as I used the single rider queue.
Anyway I am shocked how slow things are moving along. Alton use to take there time building great coasters/rides like Nemesis,Rapids,Haunted House,Hex,Air&Oblivion but I feel they rushed Spinball,Rita,Charlie,13&now Sub terra. I know there sorting Sub Terra now but if they had started this is the summer they wouldn't have needed to close it down for a week. They could have even had a preview week just for a couple of hours during Feb half term to test the ride out on guests&still had another month to get it sorted.
With about 10 months to the start of the 2013 season I would have though that at least all the ground would have been cleared and leveled ready for the footers to go in.
