I"m sorry, but nothing is worth 5 hours. Absolutely nothing.

Hell, I was mad when I had to wait 2 1/2 hours for millenium force. I mean, it was great, but nothing is worth waiting that long for.

Idiot.

Yeah, those are some nice queues. Does anyone happen to have pictures of Scream at SFMM's queue. If you don't have pictures, can you describe it. Thanks.

Mmm... Xcelerator...

Scream's isn't that interesting. You enter the queue from the right side of the dive loop, go through the straight queue for a while, then there's the fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo once you reach the entrance. And you climb up the stairs to the station.

My last TTD visit was 1.5 hours. Not that bad, but the switchbacks...OMFG I kept sitting on rails whenever the line stopped slowly progressing. Did that on Raptor, also.

Oh yeah, Raptor's an ass, also. It's all in one area, and you can see the really elevated station from almost any point in the line. It's like Cedar Point wants to make your wait on Raptor hell. You can't even figure out when you're going to get into the station, it's so freaking compact.

Thanks COOOOLkid, wow so Scream! is just a straight line up stairs into the station. Does anyone know about X's queue?

Medusa @ SFMW is pretty weird when there is a long line, the queue doesn't even switchback properly! It sorta circles around and then goes into a long strait path. And if you have been on Zonga (back when it was still open) when it is walk on. It's makes you dizzy!

People do the circle thing on Nitro sometimes. Zonga's queue does make me pretty dizzy.You know what I have noticed. Cedar Fair is like obsessed with switchbacks. At Dorney Park & Cedar Point, every single coaster queue has switchbacks. Talon, TTD, MF, & Mantis's queue are all ONLY switchbacks. Raptor is just a straight path and then a huge set of switchbacks.

this screenshot from Windows Live sorta shows X's que. But since I've never been on X I can't offer any details.

You can use Windows Live to get aerial views of many rides all over the country (including their queues) :D

Also Cedar Fair parks put in extra stuff like fan, tents, vending machines, DJ's, at the rides that suck! The 2 exceptions would be Magnum and MF.
