How is the speed of load/unload/queue going so far? Will there be single riders? Be able to choose seats, or assigned?

BEtter than X2 or Twisted Colossus?

I would assume it would be similar to SFFT and Wonder Women. Hopefully someone post.

They were pumping out trains quickly Saturday, the stand-by line never reached more than an hour from what I saw. Single rider was available, but I’m almost certain they are going to change the process as groups who went through the single rider line (Fastlane queue) were able to be seated immediately, sometimes even with priority seating. Using the single rider line was almost like having a free Fastlane. I didn’t see anyone who waited in the stand-by line not be able to get the row they wanted, either.

Also I can vouch for RB probably being the best coaster in the state. Other than Skyrush no other coaster has left me stunned questioning how the ride is even real. Seriously, it's very, very good.

So what's the point of a single rider line if this is a coaster that has one single row per car?

My guess is because, even though nobody rides "with" anyone, groups still like to ride in the same train as their party, so a single rider line could fill in the gaps to prevent empty seats.

But I agree it is a little strange since everybody is a loner on a coaster like this.

Say you have a group of 4 and a group of 3 and the next group is 3. YOu want to maximize the seats in the train. The single rider allows you to place an 8th rider in that train without breaking up the next group of 3.
