How long are the lines for S:UE this year? I'm wondering because maybe if the lines are short, V2's line will be the same in the future!
V2 Memorial Day! I can't wait!

So far, in four visits, the longest it has been is about 30 minutes. I think the lines will get longer, as the season rolls on. Plus, you must factor in dispatch intervals. Last year, Superman was 4 or 5 minutes between trains, but this season it is only about 2 minutes (from what I have seen)

I agree with Mongoose that SUE's dispatching is WAAAY better than last year. Longest wait was about 30 - 35 minutes and the line was quite long.
From last year's experience at SFGAm and the great dispatch on all their coasters (well, Batman was a little sluggish but not bad considering), V2's line should move rather quickly.

It should. An hour and a half wait on opening day is pretty short!

I was at the park on Physics day and the line was running about an hour while Villain and Batman were only 15 minutes.

Well, when you think about the ride loading process itself you can see where it'd be quite easy to keep the pace up an a design like S:UE. Unlike normal coasters where the ops have to bend over to check the bars/OTSRs repeatedly S:UE makes quick and painless checking easy on the operators physically, which means they're much more likely to be sending trains out quickly *consistently* which is the biggest factor in making lines move.

This year I haven't seen the lines go beyond an hour but on Memorial Day Weekend, I expect it to go beyond an hour.
