Your longest wait...

Tuesday, September 25, 2001 3:10 PM
On which ride has been your longest wait on the line??? I think my longest would have to be Test Track at Epcot. I waited in line for about 2 hours and 50 mins (was a very crowded day and one car stopped for about 20 mins)...that was bad.

Batwing: 1 hour and 30 minutes. The wait would've been shorter, but the ride broke down for about 20 minutes.

In 2000 I waited 2 hours for mind eraser at SFNE. A very long wait for a very crappy ride. I will never go on it again since it so rough it gives you brain damage.

Three and a half hours for Shockwave, the first stand-up coaster.  It was at SFMM, where Psyclone is today.   It was the opening season for the ride, it was summertime, and I'm pretty sure it was a Saturday.   Bad combination.

4 1/2 hours for Volcano : The Blast Coaster at PKD on opening day. 3 hours for Millennium Force at CP because the ride suffered three breakdowns and was shut down twice because of rain. But the ride that takes the cake is Batwing at SFA. I waited 9 hours for it. It was on opening day and was an event for the Coasterzombies. I went there around 8 and we were supposed to ride for about 30 minutes around 9 but because the ride was turned over from Vekoma that day and the employees weren't trained....... the ride did not operate all day. But around 6, Batwing opened to us enthusiats and we got around 3 to 5 rides in and then the gates opened for the rest of the public. About three trains ran and then the coaster broke down and was closed for the rest of opening day.

Actually the very first Stand Up coaster is King Cobra at PKI...Iron Wolf was the first B&M coaster.

My two longest waits were both in Ohio. 

 

Back in June, I waited three hours and 48 minutes for X-Flight at SFWoA.  This did include a 45-minute period where a train was put out of service and even though we would have been next to ride the train that was down, we were rather rudely re-routed back down the line to the other side of the station... which added another 20 minutes or so.  The saddest part is that I was already on the ride a few times earlier that week, yet I still waited. 

My second longest wait was three hours for Millennium Force on May 16, 2000.  The ride was having some troubles with the yellow train and it was raining outside, so that did add to the time in line.  MF was well worth the wait in my eyes, X-Flight was not.

4 hours for Mean Streak in June, 1991.  It was about 92 degrees and they didn't have the canopies built yet.  That sucked, but it was worth it at the time.   MS was new, smooth, and full of speed.

2hrs. for front of MF.  I went on a Fri. and I missed all the good times (early morning, lunch, late at night). :(

 

I don't know how Jeff manages to keep his wait for it below an hr. all the time.
