I doubt I would've been able to do everything at SFMM in a day, so I love the them. I'd spent so much on the flights, it really did seem like a drop in the ocean in comparison! And there was no way I was braving a 2 hour queue for X2 in the Cali sun. Big thumbs up to Universal for bringing it in, is it in place/being tested at USH?

We bought them on nearly every park that has got them, mainly SF parks and we loved it. It is just so much more relaxing to sit somewhere or take a minor ride than waiting in-line. I never understood the haters.

Hell, there are still people who gripe about Disney's Fast Pass--and everybody who buys a ticket has access to that.

Don't they have the plastic container in the middle to prevent items from getting wet?
I was just about to mention Horror Nights! Q-bots for Horror Nights could be a life saver, it will be interesting to see how they implement those for HHN. Thinking about HHN just reminded me that there will be no more Jaws night rides ever again , just another reason to possibly skip it completely this year in favor of Halloscreams.
Something that I don't think has been mentioned yet is that Universal is doing something very wrong with the Qbots. For example on Hulk they would scan your qbot, then make you put it in a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo?!!? WTF?!?! Come on Universal, the Six Flags parks don't even require this. It has a carabiner for a reason!
