-I actually quite like Rita. Don't think it's uncomfortable or anything either.
-I think that Wickerman is not a good family attraction. The theme is too dark for the 'track and train' roller coaster experience. The cred itself is weak and does little for me. I get people enjoy it, but I cannot understand it when people rate it highly.
On a woodie-related statement, I have a new uncommon opinion that I think I might have the more I think about it, and I apologise in advance as I think it could be a controversial one:
Wicker Man is my favourite ride at Alton Towers and my second favourite UK coaster behind Icon.
I know it's a very uncommon opinion, but I absolutely love coasters that are just plain fun and leave you wanting to go back round again and again, and even though I've only ridden it 3 times, it never fails to put a huge smile on my face! Despite having followed its construction avidly for nearly 2 years, Wicker Man still remains one of the biggest positive surprises I've ever had getting off a coaster, and it somehow grew on me even more as the 2018 season progressed! The most recent rides I've had on it have all been in the front half of the train, so I can't wait to hopefully get another ride in the back half fairly soon!
EDIT: While I'm here, I have another one; the more I think about it, the more I think that Epcot might be my favourite WDW park. It would seem that lockdown has given me a lot of time to think about this sort of thing!
