Thanks for all the advice. ^ :lmao: That's kind of funny but also a bit worrying :| Indeed I have not heard many great things about the place (except for the main coasters).

Oh yes, I had already seen a video somewhere about this very issue. Must be pretty bad

The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

Robb explained this pretty well a few pages ago.

At the end of Hyperion's queue before you board, the queue splits into four groups. You have front row in #1, single riders in #2, and the rest of the train in #3, split into two groups themselves. When Hyperion is cycled, the turnstiles will open and let 4 people through #1, 4 single riders through #2, and 10 people through each gate of #3 for a total of 28 passengers.

There are so many problems with this. Splitting the rest of the train 10 / 10 means that each train is guaranteed to leave with empty seats, as no one is willing to communicate with each other for fill-in groups to step forward, nor do they understand what's going on in the first place. And what's worse is that once the doors open and you go to the boarding platform it's pretty much "anything goes death match" anyway. There were several instances where I saw single rider teenagers running around trying to hop from seat to seat, and even if you stick together a rogue single rider might split your group because they aren't told where to sit like they're supposed to be.

Wow, okay....
Thanks for the explanation. That does indeed look like a mess. And it doesn’t make any sense to have a fixed number of single riders per train.
Anyway, we’ll see how it goes. I’m expecting to make a report when I come back home and I’ll let you know how the experience was.

That sounds like the dumbest use of a single rider line ever. The intention should be to make sure there are no empty seats, no cause a free-for-all death match. :wtf:

The free-for-all death match doesn't even have anything to do with the single rider line - once everyone in groups 2 and 3 go through their turnstiles, there are no longer sanctioned lines and people gaggle up in front of the automatically opening door. Once the door opens, it's wide enough that people can go around each other and literally run to their desired row (though I recall the front is still blocked off) if they really want to.

This sounds like the Black Mirror if theme parks. Seriously a nightmare brought to life.

Not really a nightmare, but it can get insanely frustrating. For what it's worth, everyone kind of keeps to themselves so there's never any screaming or shoving, and once you get to the air gate of the row you want, boarding is pretty much business as usual unless, as I said before, a rogue single rider seat-hops into your row.
