Rides Done in Order

  • Good time of the year. Very little in the way of queues.
  • OBLIVION (no real cue at 9.45am in Early April - Hurrah!) Very smooth and piece of cake. Definitely one to do multiple times. Mist during cool morning is quite effective.
  • Ride the "line ride" to:
  • Black Hole
  • Enterprise (sat this one out - too nausiating from previous experience)
  • Energizer (sat this one out - looked too nausiating)
  • Dino Dansaur (sat this one out - feeling queezy)
  • UG Swinger (sat this one out - feeling queezy)
  • Ride the long "line ride" to:
  • Corkscrew (30 minute wait during the day)
  • Ride a long "line ride" to:
  • Hex (new from last year)
  • Skyride Station (again, we couldn't be bother walking to Nemesis)
  • Ride a short "screaming" "line ride" to:
  • Nemesis (10 to 15 minute wait in very fast moving cue)
  • Ripsaw (looked too nausiating)
  • The Blade (looked too nausiating)
  • The Haunted House
  • Ride the "line ride" to:
  • Runaway Mine Train
  • Ride the "line ride" to:
  • Congo River Rapids (queue can look deceptively short - but beware)
  • Log Fume
  • Tea Cup
  • Ride the "line ride" to:
  • OBLIVION!! (attempt to look non-chalont(sp?) for the camera) - followed by:
  • Queezy drive home and getting a decent Chinese meal in Stockton Heath.
