Why does Dorney Park even bother with overflow queues on Steel Force? No one even likes it. Who designed it? It looks like an Arrow hyper, but they don't even do a job like that. It was good when it opened, but now, it is boring and lacks forces. Talon and Hydra, maybe, but if they demolish Steel Force for an Intamin or B&M hyper, then they would need overflows. Or better yet, a Rocket coaster with inversions like Storm Runner.
Even if Steel Force is old, it's still popular. On my last visit to Dorney, it had more people in line than any other coaster (still only a 3 train wait but all the trains were full compared to Hydra and Talon which had trains that were barely 1/2 full and had 1 train waits).
When it opened, those overflows were used. I think when I was there in 1997 or 1998 the wait was 45 minutes.
^^ Oh, well I'm judging on my visit on a week day in June, which may not be fair, seeing as most kids/teens were not out of school yet. There was almost no one there. Talon had no one in the station but us and three ride ops. Hydra had four people in the front fow line and ride ops. Steel Force was not much better off, and Laser got a short line as the day went on.
