I've recently seen multiple parks support virtual(scheduled)queuing. Does it make a real difference if a few people don't wait on the line? Also, if you've tried scheduled queuing, what are its actual benefits? I've heard that FastLane users cant go on the front row.
What's a world without upstops?!

First of it dosent really have a benafit just a good thing to have becuase you can skip the line maybe if it dose it gets about 20 or 30 peoepl out the line at most maybe less. second of all i think its ok but then when waiting in line it isent basicaly i dont like it i think everyone should wait in line like everyone else. 3rd of all if you use fast line etc you cant and wont get the front becuase its just not fair if your using the fast lane that means the line is most likly long now if you where in line 40 plus mins and then another 15 or 20 mins for the front and then a pair or 4 peoepl (in some coasters) come cut you off after all that time as if it isent bad there doing it for other seats now they are taking the front seat? there would be alot of park complaints and i would be one of them.

The only reason that parks offer V.C. is so that people can spend money in shops or on games while they are waiting for their time. I have used V.C. twice at SFoG. It really comes in handy if you have a big group and the lines are huge. We saved 30 mins waiting time on every roller coaster and spent lots of money on games. But mostly we just sat around killing time. So while we didn't have to wait in line we had to wait all the same.

Thet used to have that at Alton Towers on Nemesis and Oblivion but more people ended up queing outside the ride than would normally!! Useless system because people still que when they don't have too!!

Velduanga, FastLane differs at each of the Six Flags parks. I know Six Flags Great Adventure does not offer choice of seat on its version of Fast Lane, however I know of another Six Flags park that will offer choice of seat, at least on a few attractions.

You'll never convince Dave, but I believe that theoretically it's possible to have an actual working system. From what people describe, Disney's system is very close to being that system. However, whatever they're using at some of the Six Flags and Paramount parks and that atrocity Cedar Point used last year sound like horrible disasters.
