Most unbareable que lines

Monday, August 18, 2003 11:58 AM
I absolutley hate the que lines for Superman and Deja Vu at SFGAm. Those have to be the worst. Of course only when they're full. Other honorable mentions are Millenium Force and Mean Streak. What I mean is which coasters have the most boring, sweatiest (that means when your surrounded by sweaty people for a long time!), dragging (Deja Vu), and shadeless lines. Which ones do you dread to get in line for when they are full? Then again when they're full most people dread to go to them.

I also hate being in line for superman at sfgam because I hate swerving back and forth! But then when you are out of the swerving and going towards the station I love it!

As for Millennium Force, I also hate being in that line, but it is well worth it for that coaster!

Finally, for Dejavu, I have only ridden it once, and when I got in line we did not have to swerve, but I still hate the line because of the SLOW loading process!

How about X?? Decent shade, but broken pop machines and agonizingly slow one train op!

Millennium Force's queue certainly isn't boring, sweaty, dragging or shadeless. I find that's always moving, there is ample shade, the DJ is very entertaining, and it's hardly ever over an hour and half long.

I think the worst queue at CP is the Mantis queue. That ride's capacity is probably the worse than any of the other roller coasters. It's always far too long for the ride it gives.

Batman at SFOG. The first time I saw that interior queue, my jaw hit the floor. Luckily, it was empty. ;-)

Shaggy beat me to it. The only difference is that it was full the first time I saw it!

I only think Millenium Force's line is boring. everything else is okay. It does have shade and does move quite quickly. Deja Vu's line isn't boring but it feels as though you'll never ride it cause it moves so slow!

I like Mantis because it's diffrent. You're over water and the coaster is always zig zagging across you. It's something to look at.

Why did your jaw drop? I've heard it has excellent scenery. i'm not attacking you, it's just I'm curious, since I never rode the Batman at SFOG.

V2 at SFGAM... no shade whatsoever. Deja Vu & Superman's queue lines are excellent in comparison.

crazy kal....not once you get inside the building....B:TR at SFoG has an endless maze inside the first building, BEFORE you get to the station....luckily, the worst I've ever waited for the ride was about a half-hour, just a few rows inside there....with a FULL queue in that building, I'd imagine you're looking at 2 hours plus.....ugh!

duh-duh----------duh-duh-------duh-duh-----duh-duh-duh-duh JAWS! Especially on a hot, summer, humid, Florida day, with that annoying video not stoping for 200 minutes straight. The first time we went to Universal about 8 years ago we actually expected this ride to be good and waited 3 hours for it.

Gator - Yep. The whole building was full, plus the majority of the outside queue. That wait alone inspired the purchase of a Q-bot, our new best friend that day.

I waited about an hour or so for Batman @ SFOG, with most of the big building full. Each time I thought we were getting closer, there was more to go through. I didn't like the fact that part of the que ran alongside the parking lot, it took away from the overall experience, IMO.

I hope nobody here "bares" anything in any queue.

Flame me if you must, but TTD's line is quite nondescript and boring and almost entirely unbearable.

After so many launches, the interest in watching them go is lost. Then after winding through two big sections of queue, you get behind that ugly wall - feeling more claustrophobic than before and you're left with only silly little Dragster fact signs to read. I've never seen so many people playing cards in line before in my life -with good reason.

As you get towards the end you can watch the rider's reactions in the brake run to blow a little more time, but after 20 or so trains of high fiving, teary-eyed riders, my attention quickly turned again to "how much farther to go".

It also felt like next to no air was moving back there once you got behind that wall.

Maybe it was just that 2 hours is the longest I've ever waited for a coaster, but that line killed me.

Up until last year, mine was PKI's King Cobra. You couldn't see anything, and the maze was the longest one I've ever seen. Not in total length, but in the amount of steps you'd have to take before reversing direction. Also, it was right below the brakes of the ride, which were very loud.

Now, I'd have to say any line with lots of stairs (Vortex, Raven). I hate waiting on stairs.

X with 1 train is probably the worst line have experienced, but in the end its worth it. When I was there about 2 weeks ago, I was just outside the station after waiting 2 hours and it took me an hour more to get from right outside the station until I got on the ride. I hated being so close, but yet so far away.

Yes, V2's line is by far the worst. Along with the shade, there aren't any TVs to watch either, even though those are quite boring.

Another coaster I would like to add to the list would be Viper (Great America). For the most part, your sitting out there baking in the sun.

Top Thrill Dragster has the worst line ever. It makes you feel like a caged animal, especially when the brown fence starts. The little drag racing facts do not help at all to make the experience better. After six hours of waiting in line, I think I was more excited to get out of the line than to ride it. I think this is due to the fact that line is torture.

I second that.

Also, waiting 2 hours for Flashback is dreadful.

(that was a joke by the way) ;)
