I have some questions for whomever wants to answer them. Why does this ride have such crazy waits? I don't think it totally due to popularity. Is it loading? And how much time do you think this new loading procedure will add to the wait? I have only been on this ride once and I haven't gone on since because the waits are insane!
those gates were added for guest safety reasons. They had several incidents where guests got confusd and they made a turn into the area between cars looking for exit. Some even not noticing that there was a drop.
The same thg has hapened in California Adventure. Guest did not realize he exit was up the stairs and over the track.
thi really soud no slow dow loading
The gates have slowed things down! I think between the slow gates, and the lap bars. The Lap bars don't come down by themselves. And after a long night pushing down those lap bars really hurt your neck and back! (for the cast member)So, from a mixture of telling people to put there lap bars down, the slow gates, OH! The continuous fast past lines, (fast past gets priority) that's why the wait is crazy!
