Does anybody here ever re-ride on coasters, but if there is a line?? (When you get off the ride, you jump back into an empty seat) I do it occasionally, only iF a)- theres a big mob of people getting off, b)- the ride ops are on the other side, c)- the coaster is worth re-riding, and d)- I can sneak in quickly.
I know it is kind of disshonest, but i hate lines. I sometimes have trouble doing it because when people board, they move in as far as possible, so the empty seats are usually on the other side. Also i fear the "tatle tale" who shouts out at me...

LOL...I've never done that...but I guess I should. I usually don't re-ride coasters directly after I just get off them, though.

Ride Ops are usually very on top of this and I even asked one while in the station and he said," We will see" The ride was a walk on and no one needed my seat but he made me get out :( OH well not like I was spoce to get another ride.

I do it all the time :> Why not? The only reason not to do it is when you get caught! Especially after waiting for over an hour for SUE last summer, it was nice to get 2 front seat rides. I been caught, yeah, but only a couple times. It's totally worth it. Plus, technically, the train will go faster with you (verses the empty seat), thus making a more exciting ride.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not for breaking rules and such... but this is too good to pass up. And doesn't hurt anyone.
This little boy jumped back in an empty seat when I was riding the Boss a few weeks ago. This "bigger" kid (probably 16) started making a fuss and was trying to get the ride ops attention. I told him to shut up and stop being a dick. He told me "I work here, you don't, so I can get him in trouble!!!" then I said "why??? would that make you happy?" He shut up when he realized how stupid he looked:> It was pretty funny.

I forgot something! If you're gonna do this, just don't look around for a while, and don't ask the ride ops! Just do it! You gotta act like you know what ur doing :>
Ow! My lap bar IS down all the way.

I did that with RRV! Snuck on while no-one was looking & another guy got caught. Sure felt sneaky :). That's the trouble with Beemers, four across & lots of people in groups of varying numbers. I hate
it when there are empty seats on the train as with the Hulk, what with a hour long line. There should be a separate queue for single riders to fill those seats.
Back to the topic, if the line is small, sure. If it's long, forget it or like coasterbill said, you gotta act like you know what you're doing.

I think it's OK under the following circumstance: if there is no one waiting in a particular "stall", like say the stall for row 4 is totally empty and nobody wants it, then once the airgates close, if you're able to safely get into a seat, I say GO FOR IT! Yes, I've done it. Besides, I think it gives a better appearance for a ride to go out looking filled than with empty seats. I agree too that a separate line for single riders would be brilliant! I've gone a couple times alone and had to wait/hold up a line that could be moving a lot faster with the single rider line. Are ya' reading this Six Flags!?! Hint Hint
