  1. So I went to the park on 30th October - had an enjoyable day, but I have to say that I felt like the park is in a complete state. I didn't make a list, but small things like the numbers in the boarding area for rush and just general wear and tear throughout the park it just felt dirty and extremely tired. Sinks not working in the toilets etc, it's a shame to see it like this. I know it's never been the cleanest of places and it's the end of the season, but this shouldn't be an excuse. They should be putting maximum effort into making the park look presentable for their busiest period of the season. It felt like a 'Pop-up' event, everything seemed very temporary about the place and the cost-cuttings are evident throughout the park. One example appears to be the closure of multiple park-owned F&B and retail units and the introduction of out-sourced suppliers. Another examples is the reduction in staff numbers on Rides. Obviously the park was extremely busy, we paid for Ultimate fastrack and got on everything, but the queues were still pretty long so we ended up going home at about 7ish. I personally won't attend Fright Nights again, my previous visit was during covid restrictions and I enjoyed it alot more. I really hope that through the closed season the park focus on improving the general presentation throughout the park and look to re-open their F&B units too. My standards are alot lower than when I used to visit the park regularly and when I used to work there, I wouldn't say I'm an enthusiast anymore. I'm someone that visits once a year and comes over especially to visit, but it was poor and unless I see evidence of significant improvements next season I can't imagine I'll be going back again.
  2. Yeah, fingers crossed. Always a couple of rides that seem to struggle with longer fastrack queues than others from my experience. All depends on how the loads are being batched also. I've e-mailed the park to clarify the rides included in the fastrack package as it isn't overly clear in the T&C's.
  3. I went for the cheaper one without mazes on, but as long as we can get on all the rides and the queues aren’t really bad then I’ll be happy enough.
  4. This is what I recall seeing when I purchased them, however the website now has a much smaller list. Going to contact the park tomorrow for clarification. They should honour the T&C’s when it was purchased.
  5. I’ve just realised something. It seems as though most of the flat rides are removed from the ultimate fastrack and it’s only for the coasters from the looks of the website. Can someone confirm?
  6. For fastrack? I’ve paid out quite a lot of money for these tickets so if I have to wait in queues all day I’ll not be pleased.
  7. I can see that the park is now sold out, with the exception of Sunday. I completely forgot this was half term week. Does anyone know how bad the fastrack queues have been on days where the park is at capacity?
  8. Thank you for sharing that info - what a shame, I'll certainly think twice about purchasing the maze tickets now if it requires having to queue for an hour!
  9. That's actually really helpful and something I wasn't aware of - I'll probably opt to stick with purchasing the usual Ultimate Fastrack and then purchase the mazes that we want to do on the day then!
  10. They've just changed the Fastrack for Fright Nights - It is now £150 if you want to include the mazes for the ultimate.
  11. An hour! Used to have it up and running within 15-20 minutes when it rolled back. Has it been windy / cold the last few mornings?
  12. Yeah - Not for me then, would feel quite awkward having to drag around some poor soul for the day in all honesty! I’d have been tempted if there was some other perks, but I can’t see how you get any value out of that price.
  13. Yeah that was my thought - I'd say the host probably takes you up the exit (Not in that way), but I can't say that justifies an extra £150pp.
  14. Has anyone done the VIP package? I was having a look, but it looks like you're essentially just paying alot more money for an ultimate fast-track. Ultimate Fastrack and Park Entry is about £160 for Fright Nights, the VIP package is £295 and the only difference appears to be that I'd have a dedicated host with me for 8 hours of the day (Which I really don't require!) is there any other benefit of the VIP package that I'm missing?
  15. Does it still get stuck in the brake run - I used to have to go and push the trains to get them back into the station. Also remember it stalling once before it made it to the second lift hill due to the snow
