I'm not sure how I feel about this pay to skip line privilege. People should definatly not get into fights over it but it does cause problems. Opening of SUF at SFGADv they let about 4 trains of fast pass go in a row and a fight almost broke out. I stayed out of everything but I was still pissed since I paid to get into the park and these people were putting a damper on my day.
You know or corse it would just be asking to much for folks to wait those extra couple minutes for their entire group to gather before entering in line for a ride. But who in the hell would do that. Thats crazy talk.
I've had friends who reported line jumping to park employess at SFGAm and were later harrassed or assaulted either in the parking lot or on the streets as they left the park. 2 of those incidents were with people who were heard in line complaining about the fastpass riders going ahead of them and making them wait. Now I know that SF uses a virtual line system now but, most park patrons don't understand that system and still see it as the same as fastpass. So these people got tired of watching others ride ahead of them and they decided to line jump themselves. I know it won't ever happen because the parks make good money on them but, the fastpass, VQ or other systems need to go. Everyone should be treated equaly in a park regardless of how much money they have to throw away. And, at the very least, it should not be allowed on rides like V2 and Deja Vu where the wait is already at a snails pace. I'm certainly not condoning beating someone because of it but, I am saying that it seems to happen more and more and you can't even feel safe if you report violators to the park.
Save it, RollerCoastin!!!!. Do you want some cheese to go with that opinion? No one wants to hear THAT viewpoint here on CoasterBuzz. Most of us have the extra cash to "throw away" at parks and we don't need to hear an opinion AGAINST line-jumping-for-a-fee "Privileges". We all find the "service" to be very helpful in allowing us to steal some poor sucker's place in line, and if you and other like-minded "Victims" keep complaining about it, there is a chance that the parks will listen and decide to not let us rich folk pay to break the rules anymore, and then where would we be? That's right, the same place we were 10 or so years ago...and personally I don't want that, not in MY overcrowded homepark.
Your opinion is wrong. Deal with it.
About the lady, we don't know if she was rich or poor, so it's hard to form an opinion on this story.
You know, we were almost afraid your Disney experience changed between last night (when you posted the exact same thing) and this morning :)
There's a big difference--at least in my mind--between a group of people pushing their way through a queue and a parent who was parking a stroller while the rest of the family gots in line. Or a kid sent to fetch their mom a Coke or some Twizzlers or somebody's sunglasses.
Taken at nothing but the textbook definition, that's line jumping. Taken in the context of a family experience, that's life.
So there are cases where I can see past my own ass. Is that the 'line-jumpers' situation? If he or she tells me what's going on and asks me nicely and I'll let 'em right through. Candidly, 70-80% of other people asked in the same fashion will do the same thing.
Like the sheriff's spokesperson said, "Everyone was going to get on the ride."
Reasonable person or intolerant jackass...where do Coasterbuzzers draw the line?
It doesnt matter. You are still line jumping. Why couldnt they park the stroller before they got on line like every normal person would do?
It still line jumping. Especially in a crowded park like disney.
Yes beating the person up was wrong but doesnt nullify the fact that the person was still cutting the line. Also doesnt not mean that just because somebody cuts the line at disney that can be forgiven but if that happens at six flags its automatically bad.
