That's one way to look at it! Nice way to explain it from their angle...

...though it's not strictly a Universal thing...it's a Zamperla thing. Thunderbolt has the same 9-seater cars, and all of their Hawk flat rides use 3-across seating. Not complaining...just find it odd.
I like the look of the tower, except for the peculiar choice of keeping some of the supports white. It seems like an odd design choice that makes a slightly negative impact of the great tower they created. Overall, good choice for the park.
I never had to wait for any of the rides on my visit with fastpass but maybe that's because they didn't have the unlimited fast pass option back then so I guess all the guests only getting one ride each must have helped spread it out.

It's roughly the same story as the movie.
From the ride's press release...
At the Far Far Away themed zone, the Giant’s Castle sits ruined, entwined within a giant beanstalk. The quest, nine lives in the making, begins here as Puss In Boots and Kitty Softpaws go in search of the precious golden eggs in a bid to save San Ricardo’s Orphanage, which has fallen on hard times. Guests will join in the legendary exploits of Puss In Boots as they take off on an anti-gravity swashbuckling flight
Onboard one of Humpty Alexander Dumpty’s latest flying machines, guests set off from the Giant’s kitchen in search of the legendary golden eggs. The mission runs into trouble when they are spotted by a Tattletale gosling who alerts the Great Terror of their presence in the castle. Once exposed, riders are rocketed through plenty of twists and turns as they are pursued by the Great Terror, who turns out to be one big Mama Goose!
