Yeah, the double track coasters tend to have the quicker lines but only if it is running with full train capacity. American Eagle at SFGAm used to have great line movement because they used to run both sides with 2 trains on each side consistently. However, those days are gone because you are lucky if you see both sides running anymore.

Yes Gemini moves very fast, but I never see it running six trains anymore. I was at CP on some pretty busy days last summer, and all I saw running was four trains, which is still good, and the line still moved really fast. When they run six trains,though, it's unbelievable how fast the line moves.
I agree SROS221! I was at SFNE once last year when the line was out of the queues, past the fountain, and working its way up the ramp out of the Superhero Adventures area, and SFNE was running one train on Superman. The red train was just sitting on the transfer track. No maintenence people were seen working on it all day. I guess I can't know for sure if they really did have a good reason to only be running one train, but knowing SFNE, I have my doubts. Even when they are running two, the one train always gets back and is halted on the break run for around 30 seconds (longer than Mantis got stacked for with 3 trains! :)) To me there is no excuse why the second train can't be starting up the lift as the first one hits the breaks. That is probably around 2 minutes!
P.S. Everytime I go there to ride S:ROS, I ask myself, "Why does such a great ride have to be here?"
MF at Cedar Point seems to be the same way. I would think that during the summer they would have got the loading and unloading down to a science. But on the other hand they are a lot better then CP's Mantis and SFNE's SROS.
Hoosier Hurricane at Indiana Beach...no doubt about it. They made the line very small for some reason, so sometimes it will be packed and sometimes it will be empty (sometimes, like withen 10 minutes or so). A full Hoosier Hurricane queue is about 20-25 minutes. I suppose it depends if both trains are running. If one is and you have slow opperators, it may take 30-35 minutes. With two trains, they have them flying! Not much stacking there. I wonder what Cornball Express's queue will be like and how long the line will be....
I'd have to agree with Gemini and Dueling Dragons, but really any coaster that has a high capacity (like 4-across inverteds AKA Raptor) really moves fast. Sure, you might be in line 45 minutes, but look how many people were in line before you!
