2 hours for Th13teen, April 2010. Queues were pretty decent all day and I got a few goes on it, but then I decided to go on it last and it started having issues...

About an hour for The Smiler - was at 9 am and was one of the first trains round. Bothered waiting for more than that throughout the day when everything else is deserted
I went to OBLIVION and back, faced my own NEMESIS and it's origin. I flew through the AIR, I played with SONIC but was cursed with a HEX from the number THIRTEEN. I was the QUEEN OF SPEED but most of all I was a SMILER

I am jealous of all the people who say their longest is 30 mins. I don't mind waiting that as for me that's alright :evil:

In just 1 day I managed: 75 rides on stealth, 8 swarms, the dodgems and a tea cups. February half term was good.

2 hours in the rain for the smiler. Worth it tho.

After that it's probably 90 minutes for RITA, and close to that for Nemesis back in the 90s (like Martin I remember using the full queue line)

2.5 Hours for Th13teen when it was new, and the ride was having technical problems! Grahhh!
Longest Queue I have ever waited for though is Se7en (Thorpe Park), Furius Baco (Port Aventura) and Thunder Mountain (Disneyland Paris)...All of which were around 3 Hours.

Me too and I will never queue more than 1 hour for the ride again. as much as I hate to say it, I'd rather Fast Track or miss the ride out altogether as that queue for the Smiler is so painful when you see a steady stream of people with Fast Track tickets moving in and you never seem to move any closer.

Never queued more than 20 minutes.

Visit once a year (ish) and always make sure I go on a random Tuesday which isn't on or around school holidays in either Scotland or England.

On the day I go I actually will it to be raining.

Rain I can handle, queues I cannot.

4 Hours for Oblivion back in 2004 (i think), Sky gave away free tickets to most of their customers, never seen the park so busy.

Probably the Smiler, I think it was nearly 2 hours? Something like that, but it kept breaking down  :(
