    Theming Fun Dead spots

    Wickerman has incredible theming, which elavates the ride in the minds of a lot of people, the ride experience feels fast, with light laterals and some faint airtime, with the highlight being John Wardley's reprofiled S Curve as the second drop being suprisingly intense. The ride rides rough in spots, but I find that makes the ride more entertaining, as it creates intensity where the ride would just be meandering. The ride is overall fun, with an incredible and immersive theme, however let down by it's scale and layout.

    Theming Pace Fun Lap Bar

    It's a good fun GCI! Don't get me wrong it's no Wodan or Troy, but for its size it's really good. This year it's back to running smooth again which is a bonus, yet it still has enough of a small rattle to feel exciting. The layout itself has nice pops of airtime and surprisingly strong laterals, as well as a great sense of speed. The theming is also fantastic! However, as much as I like millennium flyers, the lap bar can really come down on you throughout the ride, which (on this ride more than any other I've ridden) REALLY ruins the airtime. I'd recommend holding onto the lap bar to stop this from happening, if you do this I guarantee you'll enjoy the ride significantly more. Overall a great family/thrill coaster and in my opinion one of the country's best!

    Airtimes Theming Discomfort

    Good ride, nice moments of airtime and the theming is incredible, just feel like this ride is very overrated, its also a little uncomfortable. Not a bad ride just really overrated for me

    Airtimes Theming Pace

    I don't think i'll ever work out how a 72ft height, and a 43mph top speed, can feel so fast and wild. GCI really nailed the out-of-control woodie feeling, and did a fantastic job with the challenge that is Alton Towers' height restrictions. It is of course the theming that really makes Wicker Man an elite ride though. The queue line is one of the best going for views of the ride, and you get the amazing 3-stage Imascore audio that really builds up the anticipation. Then you have the preshow, that couldn't be any better really, superb. The station looks amazing, and then you get to hurtle towards the effigy with all it's fire and mist. They've even upgraded the screens this year, so it looks even better than before. The execution was 100% with this one, and that is why it remains my favourite UK coaster, and a must ride on every visit to Towers

    the theming for this ride and the area is absolutely top notch - i could stand in the area all day i just love the music and environment. the theming definitely steals the show but the layout is still great as well. its not a family coaster like many say and it has some great airtime and intense laterals especially towards the back. i dont think there are any dead spots and i just love how GCI transitions ride. the best woodie in the UK for me

    An extremely fun ride. Lots of airtime and lateral forces. Theming is a huge positive. It does not need a large layout to be fun. Would recommend to both experienced enthusiasts and those just starting out.

    This ride is great fun, And it feels like it zooms through its layout but despite this it lasts a satisfying amount of time. There was no airtime for me and i've heard this coaster has some. There was some spots that just were pulling no forces at all.

    Airtimes First Drop Capacity

    I rode wickerman a few days back but 2018 was the first time I rode it and it overtook smiler into the best coaster at Alton towers. I rode it 2 times a few weeks ago and the first ride changed my mind completely, it felt like it had so much airtime and the theming is honestly so good the station is brilliantly themed as well as the ride itself, it’s not my favourite in the UK but definitely my favourite at Alton towers! No coaster in towers has more airtime than that and that is why it’s my top coaster! Some like oblivion have intense drops that are awesome but the speed, airtime, and first drop on wickerman makes it an amazing ride, I also think the smoke effects on the first drop of wickerman is the best theming that they have put into the ride!

    Initally didnt think much of this, had it levelled with galactica. However, a back row ride really elevates this to 2nd best in the park. The fire as you fly through Big Bob, the airtime that you get being flung around the layout is truly outstanding

    Theming Lap Bar Pace Airtimes Reliability

    While the theming is incredible, sometimes not all parts are working, and actually quite often there are parts of the main structure that are broken. The unbanked turn provides interesting laterals. Would definitely be my favourite Alton coaster if there were pops of airtime, but the ride is lacking in this department because the layout favours large swooping turns instead.

    This ride is only an average length coaster, however it feels much longer. This is really exhilarating, especially on the first drop that begins in a tunnel.

  • James Kerfoot

    A solid woodie, with a great first drop. However from then on I would have liked to see more airtime. The Grand National at Blackpool is a far more intense ride, but Wickerman has it for smoothness. I couldn’t pick between them for best woodie in UK for those reasons.

    Best themed wooden roller coaster around. Fun family thrill coaster. Could do with being slightly taller and a couple more airtime moments but is still great as is

    Theming Fun Intensity Too short Airtimes

    A family coaster which is intense enough for thrill seekers and tame enough for the kids. The central piece of theming is very imposing, and the theming is consistently good throughout. The pre-show is a nice cherry on top. The smoke in the station really does make you feel like you are being sacrificed to the Wicker Man. The turns had AMAZING laterals but the hills were lacking the airtime I expected, even in the back seat.

    Theming Masterpiece Ejectors Dead spots

    This is a perfect fit for the Towers. The theming is world class, best theming in the UK for sure, it's suprisingly intense for a wooden family coaster, the way it whips you around some of those elements, and you get some incredible ejector. And that centrepiece, Big Bob, is an absoloute masterpiece. Wickerman is really more of an experience that just a coaster. You have that pre-show, fab pre-show by the way, then you board your train and start the ride, everything about Wickerman is really immersive. There are a couple of dead spots, for example that long flat turnaround, but even I didnt really mind that. Overall, Wickerman is an unmissable experience and is a true Alton Towers masterpiece.

    Theming Airtimes

    Theming is amazing, with one of the best preshows I've ever seen! But the ride itself, meh... Lack of airtime and speed and hardly any fun GCI twists and turns. (Rode it in the morning in the back row)

  • Dave Scott

    Nicely themed wooden coaster, however the horror theming is incongruous with the ride experience, that is a marginally oversized kiddie woodie. Well built, but only mild airtime to be found in the back seats

    Beautiful theming and a fast, exciting ride, though with a few dead spots where it just seems to be trundling along waiting for the next drop. A worthy addition to the park.

    Have rated this in comparison to other family coasters. As a family coaster it is easily the best family coaster I’ve ridden, but as a thrill coaster, it doesn’t stand up to some of the bigger woodies I’ve done. Sooo good job it’s a family coaster then, although with what some might consider an unsuitably dark theme. Great little woodie, amazing theming, some nice forces of all kinds and an amazing dark ride... Beg, and beg, and beg for the back row ;)

    Great ride, especially the head choppers. The drops really got me off guard and got my stomach going. The only issue is on my second ride ( at the back ) I got a headache because it was so rattly. I know it’s wooden but it was too painful

    The theme to this ride is incredibly well done. On a good day there are some great pops of airtime throughout the layout. My biggest gripe is the assigned seating making it impossible to choose a back row ride except by chance.

    Not a special layout compared to other wooden coasters across the world, but unique in the UK and just what Alton Towers needed. A fast paced ride with airtime pops and fast turns. The Wicker Man theme fits the hardware well and adds to the experience. A fantastic addition for the UK.

    I was really pleasantly surprised by wicker man and what it brought to Alton towers. The area around the ride fitted in entirely, and the ride itself was nice and intense with some good near misses and airtime moments. Very good ride for everyone.
