How long will you wait to ride a coaster?

Monday, February 5, 2001 11:50 AM
For me, 1 hour and 15 minutes is about my limit, and that's for spanking new stuff like MF or X, or GREAT coasters like Ghostrider. After about an hour I get extremely antsy and the least little thing(slow ops, brake downs) will send me over the edge. I won't wait more than 45 minutes for good coasters that I have ridden before(Batman,Invertigo) and 10 minutes is the longest I will wait for the less then average stuff. My longest wait ever was 2 hours for Indiana Jones and I will never do that again.

The first time I rode Millennium Force I waited 3 hours. The first season Batman The Ride opened at SFGAM I waited about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. I rode both of the coasters in the early spring on a weekend.

For a new record breaker, I wouldn't mind waiting in line for up to 7-8 hours.

I'm with Middleman. An hour, max. Now, Charlie... I'll just say it must be nice to be able to pay forty or fifty bucks to get into a park to stand in line most of the day for one ride!

For a coaster that I really want to ride, I'll wait however long it takes.

When i rode Millennium Force i had to wait 4 hours. If the ride is new expect to wait for a couple hours. I don't think i have a wait limit as long as it is a good ride.

Depends.....

in reality, I waited 5 hours for S:ros-SFDL opening day... since I arrived a couple hours early, was 1st in line, ended up being long time... *ahem* long story..

...anyways, I also remember waiting for about 5 hours for Nightmare at Phantom Cave on opening day.. LOL!!!!!!! Wow..

...see I didnt mind when it came for Superman, but for Nightmare? lol!

(oh, this is SFDL we are talking about)

The worst for me was waiting 4 and a half hours for Raptor, and not ending up riding it. A long story as well!

I'll patiently wait 2 hours, but after that I get irritable.

I've never waited longer for any coaster, longest I've ever waited was 2 hours 15 minutes for Magnum like, 6 years ago. The longest I've ever waited for MF was 1 hour 35 minutes.

I will wait 1 1/2 hour for a ride, I dislike standing waiting for a two minute ride, I get all light headed and crap.:)

Well, I can just about handle a 2 hr wait, but anything above that, I refuse to queue up for it. No Ride or Coaster is worth a 3,4 or 5 hr Wait in my opinion(Not even coasters like Millennium Force)and yet people have done it before.

Luckly, the longest I have ever queued up for a ride was 1 hr 45 mins for Batman at SFMM, and YES I am very lucky indeed when it comes to visiting theme parks, I always somehow manage to avoid the crowds.

I'd say I'll only wait 6 hours for a new coaster, and 4 hours for an already ridden coaster. Longets I've waited was SoB for 4.5 hours, only becauese I waited for front which tacked on another hour.

The longest I've ever waited is 3 hours for Magnum the year it opened. I'll tolerate an hour wait if the ride is worth it. I rode MF 4 times last year and waited an average of an hour each time. Not bad for a new coaster.

Thank you for riding America's Roller Coast

I'll wait pretty much whatever it takes to get on, but I'll start getting irritable and a little vindictive after about an hour and a half. The longest I've ever waited for any ride was for the Rocket Rods at DL. I waited almost two hours for that lame excuse for a ride. The longest wait I've ever had for a coaster was about the same for Space Mountain. But that ride is worth the wait. As for non-Disney rides, I waited a little over an hour for Top Gun at PGA when it opened. That's about all the long waits I've had, pretty much every other time I've gone on semi-good days. Peace. :)

The longest I have waited for a coaster was about an hour. The longest line I ever waited in was Splash Mountain, WDW 3 hours!!!!! Could you imagine how long the line on Dueling Dragons would be if it started at the Dragons Entrance.

waiting is half the fun!! especially when you use the que themes to entertain guests...(they're all going to eat us!!! OL:FoF) the most i ever waited was 4 1/2 hrs for SoB on opening day for the general public, but of course i go to CP and only wait 10 min for MF. GO FIGURE!

I dunno how long my limit is. The most i ever waited was about 2hrs for mantis in '00'. My wait for MF(before ticket to ride) was only 1hr 15mins. w/ it stoping twice to switch red and gold trains, and i got in line around 5pm on a friday. I was very surprised to say the least. But i dont think i would ever wait over 3hrs unless i had something to really make the time fly.

It depends on what ride. I'd wait about 3.5 - 4 hours for MF.
