Mega busy. In fact, if you don't want to fork out for Fastrack I'd say intolerably busy.

How busy do you think the park will be this Wednesday or Thursday. Planning on going on one of those days, just before half term and not expecting hardly any school groups yet.

I'm going up this Fri and Sat and i'm expecting it to be very busy. School trips are going up there already, someone on TTF took 100 or so kids up there last week.

Can anyone give me a guess at how busy it will be on Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th of June.

It is the week schools go back after half term so I am hoping it will be quiet and no school trips as they would have only then gone back to school?

Hi Ollie. The park is beginning to enter the busy season. I think the queues shouldn't rise above 90 mins. You can buy a fastrack pass before you visit. This would ensure you get at least one ride on the some of park bigger attractions.

Ohh thanks, I had a feeling this might be the case. I might book one, but without, do you have any suggestions on areas/rides to head to first assuming we are there when the gates open at 10?

Th13teen usually fills up fast so if you want to ride, either, sprint to it when your let in to the park or wait until the end of your day! I usually head to either XSector first to get a few rides on Oblivion as its quieter in the mornings.

As I said before, I would recommend you buy a fastrek to get the most out of your day biggrin.gif

Overall though, its up to you!

Hi everyone,

I'm thinking of making a trip up there on Friday 3rd September. How long are the queues likely to be? I'm not sure if the kids will be back at school by then or not! Thanks smile.gif

Busy enough to warrant not actually visiting and just waiting until next season.

If you want Fastrack, I'd prebook it as it will almost certainly sell out.

I went last year on the 5th I think, it was ridiculously busy.
Took a good 2 hours to get off of the car parks as well which turned it to pretty much a swamp by leaving time.
The fireworks were good but not something you need to see before you die as it were.

I am willing to turn a blind eye to poor safety regimes as long as they get the theming right. In Six Flags, we get neither.
