Premier Screaming and opening day were both a huge success. Friday evening was much busier than last year, and Saturday attracted over 11,000 people to the park. Nemesis Inferno waiting time peaked at an hour and a half, while Colossus had over a three hour queue due to one train operation. Engineering are still working on the other.

Pictured is the new Extreme Games Zone, which looks plain tacky. The Spiderman show seems very popular going by the amount of people who watch it throughout the day. Has some excellent stunts and effects well worth seeing. The Thorpe Belle is to the left with its new maroon paint job.
