6 hours at SFOG the first year the Mindbender opened. We waited in line for 4 hours to get our hand stamped and then another two hours until it came time for our ride. The line was all the way from the Mindbender to the dolphin tank (diving tank now).

I somehow always seem to get lucky when it comes to lines. 1 1/2 hours for Millennium Force.

You mean everyone doesn't get walk-on rides for Dragster? Or Dragster, Superman Ultimate Flight, and Delirium in the same week? ;)

Anyways, 2.5 hours for the first day SOB was operating.

You guys are WAY too patient.

I'm trying my hardest here to come up with the longest lines I can remember waiting out and this is what I have:

Just over 1 1/2 hours for TTD last year.

Just under 1 1/2 hours for MF the year it opened.

1 hour and 10 minutes for X in February 2003.

I can't honestly think of a situation where I've waited longer than that for ANY ride - coaster or not.

Only time I've ever waited more than an Hour for a ride that I can recall was a little under 2hrs for the first time(first season) I rode Batwing. One Train op on a friday. Even Superman was only maybe 40min. I don't wait for hours for rides, I go during the week and get there early to ride the more popular rides.

Right at 2 1/2 for a front seat ride on MF. I have waited in many hour lines for ride such as GhostRider, Xcelerator, Magnum, Mean Streak, Superman Ultmate Flight, Goliath and X. But 2 1/2 is my longest, anything longer is simply not worth it IMO.

I waited 1 1/2 for Millennium Force the year that it opened. (Coincidentally, the last time I was at the po!nt.)

I honestly wouldn't wait any longer than that unless it was a super-amazing temporary attraction.

If TTD was going to be torn down in a month and I'd never ridden it, then maybe I'd wait a couple hours.

Otherwise, I'm sure it'll be there next time I go. I'd rather ride something else four times.

Believe it or not, I think my longest wait ever was for Batman at SFGAm... two years ago. The line was over two hours long but I wanted to get that one trip in on the "original."

I did MF of one and a half hours opening year, Son of Beast for about the same, but it wasn't operating until the last ten minutes (I don't really count that, but I see that others have), just over an hour for Nemesis, Air, Medusa (SFMW), Kumba, Big Bad Wolf, whatever the hang-n-bang at SFNE is called (don't ask), Space Mountain (DL, DW) and Mr. Freeze. If the line is over an hour, I'll generally leave and come back to the ride at the very end of the day. Most parks have enough to keep me occupied that I don't visit them for only one ride, so if one queue is too long, I'll move on and return...

2.5 hours for MF on AAA's CP preview day back in 2000.

1 1/2 hours for Deja Vue at SFOG two years ago.

2 hours for TTD last May. That was 2 hours of waiting outside the queue to even see if it would open. Once they let us in, it was like 10 minutes.

1 1/2 to 2 hours for a backseat ride on X this past January. Wouldn't you know it, we come back the next morning and it's a walk on.

7 hours for Millennium Force. It broke down, but it was the one ride we HAD to get on, so we stook it out and ended up getting exit passes to come back when it was fixed. We got on the next morning.

13.5 hours for opening midnight showing of Star Wars Episode 1. It was worth the wait. Yes, the movie was disappointing, but the experience of being there all day with such an enthusiastic crowd was great!
