    Don't get me wrong, I loooooooove rollercoasters and it's be awesome whatever... but we're spending ages at the theme park and my friends don't wanna go on any of the non-rollercoaster rides because they say they don't like them.

    there will be practically no queues for anything when we go because it's a weekday..

    how can i convince them!? the non-rollercoasters are almost as good as the rollercoasters!

    Don't worry, they'll change their mind when they're inside.

    When me and my friends went to Thorpe Park (theme park), before we went they were all like, let's go on the good ones, don't go to the rubbish ones etc etc.

    But when you're inside the themepark, you and your friends would just go on everything. We even went on the LAME SLOW RIDES/Kiddy ones just for the fun of it! XD

    So yeah, you don't need to convince them

    lol if they dont like them, they dont like them. nothing you can do about that

    but as you said there won't be that many queues, so you'll burn through the rollercoasters pretty quickly, I'm sure you can convince some of them to come on the rides you want

    Lol they're missing out. The barrels at Alton Towers is the funniest ride in the park, fact. They may as well go on all the rides if they've paid for a ticket.

    I agree with this. Especially if it's pretty empty which it probably will be on a weekday at this time of year. If it looks pretty busy you might want to get a fast track ticket if the park does them. But it probably won't be needed.

    The rollercoasters will be all dealt with pretty quickly, you'll probably get multiple rides. Me and friends went to thorpe park one october and we went on pretty much everything, although that park is mainly big rides anyway.

    I wouldn't stress too much.

    once they've been on a rollercoaster or two, they'll want to go on more other rides, hopefully.

    My friends are the opposite, they hate roller coasters and would rather go on the nice tame rides. Well, two of my best friends are. The other two will go on any ride they want. Sometimes the non-rollercoaster rides are better than the roller coaster! If the waltzers go fast enough (the one at the beach near where I live goes really fast, it's better than the roller coaster there for sure) then they're brilliant, and swinging boats are decent as well. Plus, they usually last a fair bit longer than rollercoasters, so it's better. If you can convince them to go onto one good non-rollercoaster ride you'll be able to get them onto others.

    At least your friends are going on some rides. I went with my friend last year and she wouldn't go on anything, not even the kiddy rides. Im sure once you're there your friends will change their minds, hopefully.
