Least boring queue line?

Thursday, April 5, 2001 2:17 PM
I just wondered what coasters have interesting queue lines. We all know queues are inevitable (most of the time) so at least its a consolation when a ride's queue has something to keep us occupied or amused or worked up.... I like queues which are near to the coaster so that you can see what you are about to face but also keep some surprise elemants for when you are on the ride.
An example of this is the Hulk at IOA. You can't see inside the launch tunnel or the second half of the ride (an extra 3 inversions!). There is also some great music played. Boring queues are ones that just go back and forth so that you always see the same thing until you get on the ride. I could name MANY.....

Dueling Dragons also has a good queue.. Umm the MF queue is pretty cool when the train roars by.
But then again that MF maze can go on forever!...

I like the queue to the Rock N Rollercoaster too..

"I like queues which are near to the coaster so that you can see what you are about to face but also keep some surprise elemants for when you are on the ride."

In that case, you will love the queue line for Nemesis at Alton Towers, this queue line takes you very near the coaster at times, one great view you can get is looking up the first drop, its even better if you catch a train going down at the same time(the faces of the people in the front row can be hilarious) Another good view is where you can stand right next to the vertical loop with just a fence in front of you, I love the wind you get in your face standing here.
You can also stand right under the Corkscrew which is cool. The Queue line also gives you other great views of the coaster.

I also agree about Hulks Queue line, Great Music, good themeing too, Also I rather like Duelling Dragon's Queue line for its amazing themeing inside a Huge Castle

The Magnum queue is awesome! You don't see any of the ride, the DJ is playing music, line dancing, beach balls...

Looking for ideas...

I loved Volcano's queue....it gave me the whole survivor feel! The trains roaring through the launch and the rumbling mountain with the fire balls is great too!

Batman: The Ride at SFMM has a great que. It is unique and entertaining.

Alpengeist has a great queue. Theming, theming, theming. Not to mention the close proximity to two of the coaster's inversions.

Viper at SFGam is themed around a wild west snake elixer plant. (What ever that is.)

I agree with you about Nemesis' queue Paul. That music is absolutely fantastic and it offers some great views. I also like the 'wind' next to the helix after the first barrel roll (although its not in the queue). Its a real surprise when you're not expecting it.

The MindBender at SFOG goes through a wooded area and on hot days it is a blessing. Plus you get good view of the Free Fall.

Personally I like the exit from Riddler's at SFMM. The track comes right out of a dive loop, literally a few feet over your head, at like 50 mph. Almost an attraction in itself. But you just can't beat the Prince music piped out over the Batman queue. Unfortunatley the removed the shot up cop car at Magic Mountain...anyone know why, the ride just isn't the same.

Oh one side note; I know it isnt a rollercoaster, but Indiana Jones at Diisneyland has the most amazing themeing ever.

Flight of Fear atleast had an interesting queue. I don't know what is like right now though. The queue for Hypersonic is also neat as they left in a bunch of the old trees and put in lots of landscaping.

The Nemesis queue sounds great! From the descriptions given, it sounds like it's the best.

I loved the Dueling Dragons queue, but we never had to wait in it - I would imagine it would get old pretty quickly. When I'm waiting in line, good theming just doesn't do anything for me. After you stare at the same thing for a while, it ceases to be interesting (down with all of the indoor queues (FoF, Mr. Freeze, many Batmans, etc.). For that reason, I like the Mantis queue line because of the view you have of the ride. The RB at SFGAm is also pretty good (although those ummm..."roofs" can get in the way of your view of the ride).

I must take issue with the Batman queue. Although I haven't been on the Batman at SFMM, every Batman (not just B:TR) queue I've been in has been exceedingly annoying. They've had blaring, obnoxious sound effects, corny announcements, and much more.

I know this isn't a coaster but I thought spiderman at IOA had a great que. It really feels like you are in the daily bugle from the comic book.

id have to say, without a doubt, space mountain@d-land which has the tv thing that gets u into the mood and the sound of the coaster as if it was a space thing takin off. it gets you really pumped up and when u enter the loading room with that big thing above makes the ride much more enjoyable. Also (just behind) indiana Jones at d-land which you have to see to understand. i bet they spent more on the queue then the ride itself.

I think The Jokers Revenge's queve is AWSOME! You go thru a fun-house and there are black lights and mirrors that change the way you look. Its pretty cool for a boring ride!

I agree. Space Mountains line is cool. But my favorite is Riddelers Revenge. It's like a dance club. It's so cool! Last time I went, the ride broke down. So while we were waiting, people were dancing in the line. It was so cool!
