How Busy Is It Going To Be?


Question

Right, so instead of endless topics asking us how busy the park is going to be, instead here is a rough guide to the kind of business the park/s should be expecting this season. It's not set in stone and remember business can be effected by weather, ride reliability, mount of trains/cars on the rollercoasters, amount of staff working on things, fastrack etc etc etc!10am - 5pm Weekday. Likely to be very empty, particularly in term time. Queue time should be minimal (Unless your name is Stealth and you have a stupid system where you can only load 4 in the first, 8 in the second and then you end up rolling back anyway etc etc) 10am-5pm Weekend. Will be emptyish, however likely to be long queues for Saw, Colossus, Stealth and Nemesis Inferno.10am-6pm. Busy but not so bad. Queues for the coasters could reach 45/60 minutes, whilst the rest of the flat rides should be a max of 30 minutes. June and July are when schools start rolling in, so between 11-3 the park will be very busy.9.30am-6pm. Should be busy. Queues for the coasters could reach 60/90 minutes and the rest of the rides queues will be between 20/40 minutes. Fastrack will be in operation.9.30-7pm. Expected to be busy. Queues should be similar to 9.30-6.00 close except the last hour should be quite empty.9.30-8.00 Again should be busy. At least you have a long day to get on quite a few rides. 10.00am-10.00pm Will be busy. Last year wasn't as bad as previously however if it ever hits peak capacity, queues will be up to 2 hours for the rollercoasters and between 45/90 minutes for the flat rides.Remember guys, read this guide to help if you beat the queues without wasting money on Fastrack. Also use the park well. Head to Stealth and Inferno instead of Saw and Colossus. Do rides whilst they look empty instead of following the majority of the crowds.

15,243 people exactly Queue times for the top five rides are as follows. Stealth - Minumum queue time - 5 minutes. Maximum queue time = 83 minutes and 25 seconds The Swarm - Minimum queue time - 5

Just for you, (and this is a Mark9 special)! I am going to predict accurately all the rides queue times from 10am to 6pm. If I am wrong then you will have to blame the spirits, we have a bad connectio

From what I've heard (and seen of the car park), it's been packed.

As a large amount of visitors will be on school trips which have been planned for a long time, the weather isn't going to put people off. I'd expect the rest of this week to be heaving. I dunno when schools break up, but presumably it's this week / next week; so there's bound to be a fair few school trips going on into next week.

Then, after that, it's summer!!!

Hopepro186: - Probably will be busy as it is the middle of the summer holidays, however, as it is a Tuesday, it will be slightly less busy than the weekend. Also, travelling to the park may be affected because of the Olympics. I'd suggest you look on Thorpe's website for directions as they have Olympic related diversions on there.

Ibwoody: - Probably will be averagely busy still as most schools don't go back until the Wednesday or Thursday of that week. Should be a little quieter than the end of August though.

Just to let everybody know, I have literally just got back from Thorpe Park today (12/09/2012) and it was RAMMED! I've never been to Thorpe before and it to be so busy.

Colossus had a 90 minute queue, Saw had a 75 minute queue (Which then went up to 90 whilst in the queue) Nemesis Inferno had a 40 minute queue, as did the Swarm whilst Stealth had a 60 minute queue. It was ridiculous.

Only walk on rides was Loggers Leap, Mr Monkeys Banana Ride, Quantum, Zodiac and Rocky Express! Everything else had an oversized queue line.

Just to add, Samurai was closed for the day.
