LOL, dude, Magnum sucks if you're in a wheel seat. Also, I've only found one train that's smooth. I think it was #1.

But yeah, DJs in Millennium Force save the day. Magnum, you only hear them for about ten seconds as you skip through the empty switchbacks, but I do remember hearing "Somebody Told Me" by The Killers.

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.

I totally agree. We went to Disneyland the year Splash Mountain opened, didn't even go on it. We did the fastpass thing last year. You wanna wait, get to the park when it opens and head to your fave. 5.5 hours in the sun? Forget it.

Oh, I was quite upset at CP during my last trip. For every ride except for TTD, there are tents and fans. Well, there were fans for the 3 hour queue for TTD, but they weren't working. I ended up with a case of sunstroke because of it. I was out of commission for the rest of the day. Not happy.

Here's a picture of Talon at Dorney with a full queue. I wouldn't have believed it without the picture because it's hard to imagine any coaster at Dorney with longer than a 10 minute wait, let a lone a full queue:

Did my donkey title just change???

Did you know the line was 5.5 hours?

The line was only supposed to be 1 hour, but the weather wasn't great so it kept closing. It was not boring because it was me and 5 of my best friends so we had a blast sitting in line. Then when we finally got on, we got a rollback, so it was worth every second of waiting.

^ I remember that TR. The queues were INSANE!!! LOL!

Anyway, my favourite queues are:

Dueling Dragons (That queue is the BOMB!! The best in the world!)
The Hulk (All the Science stuff, and they show a mini movie too!)
Revenge Of the Mummy (Incredible, I love the part where you reach for the Diamond thing and it it a booby trap!)
ToT (Again...Brilliant!)
R'n'RC (Cool show thing going on!)

And, have you seen how many vending machines are in MF?

I wish when i went the lines were that short. The lines for millenuim for 2 hours 5 minutes after opening! And i dont even know TTD's, we didnt even bother to try to run to that! But later in the day the lines slowed up and everything but Mille was less the 1 1/2 hours!

I've waited in a line that long for Talon before. Luckily it was in the evening and a bit cooler, but it sucked because the ride broke down with me next in line.

On the subject of best q's, I would definetly agree with Dueling Dragons, and I also thought Hulk's was pretty cool too.
