We had a great day, got wet on Congo River Rapids and then dried off on Air!
I was quite impressed with Alton Towers attempt to save water in the middle of this water shortage. None of the waterfalls on Nemesis were flowing and no one got wet on Ripsaw.
Air (my favourite ride) was a disappointment as it was plagued throughout the day with technical problems, but we still managed 6 trips on it.
The new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ride was even more of a disappointment. We queued to be first on then came out thinking 'Was that it?' It was basically 2 rides, one in a boat and one in the glass elevator but probably appealed more to kids.
As I always take videos/pictures when I go I decided not to bother this time. However, I have decided to share the video I made last year.
