Rameses Revenge

Recommended Posts

Rameses did have quite long queues this year. Certainly a lot of the time it would have up to 30 minute queues. Part of the reason its queue is shorter then Rattlesnake majority of the time is because of throughput, no inversions on rattlesnake and spectatorship. People don't know what to expect from Rattle as most of it is hidden away and so are more likely to try it. Its the same reason dark rides such as No Way Out and Black Hole always had/have stupidly long queues.

The ride goes around once, stops, swings.. goes forwards and backwards.. over, water thing.. stopped.. is the setting at the park. That video is near exact to that.. I cant see any major differences, and I hope I bloody know the cycle after watching it daily a year ago.

Rameses runs on 6 different settings; settings are run with another one after the ride has finished it's cycle - I.e setting 2 is run after setting 5 and so on. I'm not sure of the coupling, but it happens after every ride to ensure difference between rides.

Although I've just been informed that they have a combination of 1 & 3, 4 & 6 or 2 & 5 although I've only EVER seen or even heard of it being used on 4 and 6.

Just to back up what sheepie said all operators of rameses revenge during the training must make sure they know that they can only use programmes 6 followed by programme 4. This is to keep it consistent and so people get the same ride they saw 2 minutes ago there is nothing worse than riding a ride then getting off and realising the ppl getting on get a different ride lol.

Only time I've seen Programme 7 being used while guests were on the ride was back in summer after the bars were being a pain and then it code phasing.Guests got 3 cycles to make up for it 6,4,7 :rolleyes:I was like grrr why do I have to be batching? Only time you guys weren't doing programme 6, programme 4 was when we had problems with the brakes and you guys had to keep sending it programme 4, programme 4.More intense ride :rolleyes:

I love Rameses Revenge soo much! My favourite ride at Chessington. I make sure get at least one go when I go there. I really do wish though that they put it on a better cycle all the time, it just makes it soo much more fun :P

Well Rameses wont be as good this year as 2 of the best people to ever operate this ride have left chessington for better things. The ride itself will still be good but the 2 operators that are not at chessington anymore will make for some upset guests riding it.Rameses is one of the best rides at chessington in my opinion either Rameses or Fury are the best rides within the park. I will have to wait and see if they replace 2 of the best operators with anyone good.

Everytime I ride Rameses Revenge, I haven't been too impressed with it's operation. Maybe I missed these 2 operators when I ride. Although, let's hope this reason, people will learn from Ripsaw.

It's on a setting, it's not manually operated (except for the fountains). So you must've just been unimpressed with the ride setting and not the operator.
