I was at Alton Towers on Thursday and American Adventure on Wednesday and both parks were almost empty. That is only to be expected of AA but not AT. The longest queue time was just under 10 mins for the front of Nemesis. For most of the day have of nemesis was empty and Oblivion was a walk on aswell. I could stay on the rapids and log flume for up to 5 times in a row and the bloke on the mine train sent it roun 7 times at one stage. October is the best month to visit theme parks dont you agree!

Blackpool's really crowded, thanks to the Illuminations. Good weather last weekend, though.

I do actually. If you can put up with the weather there's no better time to go. I certainly never go anywhere between June and August. Paying 20 quid to stand in queues all day isn't my idea of fun.

There's always the risk of getting pneumonia after the water rides to weigh up though. ;)
