I wonder, with the arrival of Th13teen.. what behaviours exist now!?

Do you think the general customer charges straight for the new ride, leaving say Sonic and Oblivion quite quiet? I'm taking some non-Towers regulars in July, so want to try and ensure that they get the best from their day.

Any hints would be very welcome!

Cheers, Kev

Yes your correct, at the moment most people head straight for 13 and thus the ride has huge queues, usually out of the queueline entrance at the moment. Personally I would leave 13 for the last ride of the day.

I've been several times this year now, well into double figures both at weekends, weekdays and bank holiday Monday and it always seems to be the same - everyone seems to head to Dark Forest first thing. The queue starts from 9am then at 10 the masses pile in. Quite often this year there has been 80 or 90 minute queues for Thi3teen while Oblivion is a walk on.
I really think Thi3teen should be on the ERT lineup.

How long is the queue when it is out of the entrance?
When three trains are on?

I queued for about 45 mins when the queue was at the entrance. Cant remember how many trains though, but it was the 2nd week after opening so prob running full capacity.

I would like to think that once all the teething problems are ironed out with Th13teen, that it will, perhaps from 2011, be added to the ERT line-up.

At present, even many guests who go into the park at 9:00 head straight to Dark Forest and wait until Th13teen opens. If it were open at 9, these guests would have been on it before the regular day guests get on park and be out of Dark Forest, reducing the congestion. It would also ease queue's the rest of the day as 1,000 or so people could potentially ride before 10.

As it stands, not having Rita or Th13teen on ERT just means there's a huge crowd at the entrance on opening - which, let's be honest, doesn't create a great impression to guests who are greeted with huge queue's the moment they get to Alton. Of course, it isn't Altons fault that Th13teen gets a massive queue on opening - the guests decide what they are going to do, but they could at least ease the problem.

In April, I recall riding Nemesis 3 times with no queue at all along with a ride on Air with about a 5-10 minute wait whilst the Forbidden Valley queue board claimed that Th13teen had a 90 minute wait...!
