Does your park let you re-ride (coasters) if no one is waiting to get on in your seat's row?? At SFGAdv they usually do in the spring and fall when the park is not as crowded.

I got three re-rides on Face/Off at PKI and have gotten re-rides for all the coasters at World's of Fun. In all cases, the ride-ops made me exit the car and stand on the unloading platform until what few people there were in line boarded. After that, you fill in an empty seat and go another round.

Starfire, I can't believe you got rerides on Face/Off. Not for the fact PKI wouldn't let you. Just because that line was always an hour long in '99 and still about 30 min. in 2000. Did you just fill empty seats? We do that sometimes. At IOA we got about 15 rerides on the Hulk and DD each. The operators didn't care at all on DD. He said it's always a walk-on ride anyway. But the operator at the Hulk wasn't too crazy about allowing us to do this because there's a single rider line. But oh well. I had fun. ;) *** This post was edited by Koaster King on 2/19/2001. ***

The ride ops (Heather in particular) on Ghostrider know me pretty well, and will allow me to fill in any empty seat, even if there is a line. It goes to show you, if you are nice to the operators, they will be nice to you!

Technically, it is against policy at KBF (being Cedar Fair) but if it is really dead (like weekdays right now) they will let you re-ride.

SFMM, they were sending out half empty trains on Goliath, last Saturday (Feb. 10), and FORCED me to walk around to the enterance, every time. I really like that park, but if the trains are half empty, why not allow re-rides? It's not like the turn gates actually keep an accurate rider count, there are always the jokers who turn them 5 times whenever they go through. So what's the difference?

SFGAm...Absolutely...as long as no one is waiting in line for you seat. Cedar Point...Actually I have ridden Raptor 2 times in a row without having to get off. There was no lines. I guess it really depends on the operators.

I've had numerous rerides on Wyandot Lake's Sea Dragon. Depends a lot on the operator it seems. Some are friendlier than others

Yea, at SFA when it got late and no one was on line except these two other guys, we just alternated between the front-front and the front-back until the park closed.

Michigan's Adventure. I rode the Corkscrew five times in a row in the front seat until someone wanted to ride. I then rode in the back but I eventually got sick of riding the old Arrow. Too bad they don't let you do that on Shivering Timbers. Not when I was there at least.

My last trip to MM was really dead. The longest wait was less than five minutes for Goliath. They let us re-ride on every ride except for Goliath. My cousin and I were in the second to last row on our first ride. When the train emptied, the last row was free. We got in and the ride op told us there were no re-rides. So we went around to the begining, got back in line, and waited for the front. When we got on we just gave the ride op some dirty looks. When the train started out the station I screamed no re-rides. That guy was a jerk.

SFSTL Ride Op Policy states that re-rides are not allowed. If Ops give re-rides they can get terminated. Silver Dollar City allows re-rides. I rode Thunderation 45 times in a row in the same seat.

At Lagoon in Farmington, Utah, we do not allow re-rides on our coasters. When I was being trained for Dragon/Mouse Crew, I was told it makes a park look "Unprofessional." I do agree with Lagoon's opinion of that. I do think it makes a park look Unprofessional when they allow re rides, it is not normal operation. I know the rules, as do most people, and follow them. If you really want to ride the coaster, what's the big deal with walking out the exit and walking back through the queue? If the ride is worth it, I don't mind, it's just more exercise.
