Ok. On the Cedar Point website, I looked at the ride policies, and for the roller coasters with front seat waiting, it said that if the front queue is full, choose another seat. Is that for all of their roller coasters or is it limited to some? If some, name them.

just some, that is pretty much regularly just top thrill dragster, although it hasnt really been enforced, and definately millenium force. Those are the two main ones, everything else is generally lax on those policies.

It's a subjective policy which basically means that if the trains are being sent half-full because there are hundreds of people all waiting for the front seat, they reserve the right to tell you to board another row.

One thing that does piss me off (especially if I'm NOT waiting for the front seat, but not solely) is when I'm at a park and I see trains going out with completely empty rows because the line for the front is blocking non-front-riders from getting into the station fast enough to fill the other rows.

Raptor enforces it because if the line is full it blocks the turnstile and all the other rows are empty. Really kills capacity on one of the park's fastest lines... so we really try and keep that clear.

I just don't like it when the headrest blocks the view.

On Magnum we try to keep the line for the front up against the blue railing so that guests can ride 1-2 and 1-3.

The only thing I like about a long line for row 1 is that it usually makes the second row a relatively short wait :)

^ true dat! Pain though to look over the first peeps though on that 80* drop. One thing I look for when I'm headed for the back is to make sure the person that will sit in front of me doesn't have A) Wet hair B) Long Hair C) An Afro, or D) An almost impossible combination of the 3, most common are letters A and B. I roll front seat in the day (no bugs) and back at night (You have no idea where you are going, especially on Nitro, that's why it's my No. 5 coaster). I also opt for the front so I can see the track. On rocket coasters, front seat is the ONLY way I ball, so I can feel the wind, Look straight up into the sky (Not like I remember or anything), see the view at the top, and the drop.

You can't look up into the sky on the other rows? ;)

You guys need to do what you used to always do and have the front seat queue continue down the side of the station to the end, but just have an ride op make sure that the entrance to the stairs is clear for riders to go to other seats. Those who want the front row can just wrap around and go to the right.

But at times the line STILL blocks the queue from the non-first-row riders.

Nitro's line does that doesn't it? On busy days, people who don't realize that the line that is at a standtill is the line for the front, not the line to get into the rest of the station. So, it does cause congestion, thereby making the line slower.

From my experiences on Nitro, there's enough room in the station to pack in about 4 or 5 trains worth of people.. by the time people realize that it's the line for the front, there's a whole bunch of people that then go around them.. meanwhile, no empty trains have gone out, and the station fills up again. Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

Well, I really don't care about 1 empty train, I just think that the line is better when you are in the station: you can see what is going on vs. having no idea when you are so far away from the place.
