Queues have been lengthy, with some up to two hours long, but despite this, fans braved the elements of Storm Gareth and took to Twitter to announce that it was worth the wait.
Glad we went to see the #phlegmgiants today – long queue even 20 minutes before opening time, but well worth the wait; brilliant use of the industrial space.https://t.co/VZBG9IUmpC pic.twitter.com/gpGF09Y2qe
