OT - Since when do SR lines have "rules" other than that the guest is willing to fill in the otherwise empty seats/spaces? Some rides are slower loading than others to allow TM's to group odd/even parties from the standby/EP lines together; others benefit from the TM having the ability to quickly 'grab" singles to fill the seats quickly.I agree with the above about single rider lines. If so many people get in it that it is essentially useless, might as well make everyone go through the regular line. As a frequent solo traveler/single rider, I appreciate Universal having SR lines. I don't mind if groups of adults go in it if it is significantly shorter, but if it becomes overwhelmingly long it doesn't do anyone any good. I did see an issue with the SR line at FJ on Saturday, as a whole family with small children were in it, not understanding what it was.
It's not a debate on if there are rules, or not rules. We've already established there are no rules. Simply theorizing reasoning of why Universal (potentially) might want to do subtle things to keep better control of the SR line as clearly we've seen the numbers of people using these lines dramatically increase when certain rides are popular which causes them to be shut down and defeats the purpose of the line.OT - Since when do SR lines have "rules" other than that the guest is willing to fill in the otherwise empty seats/spaces?
I was looking at the wait times and it looks like it did open eventually, and even stayed open later than usual (still closed before park close of course).So we were at Universal Thursday October 17th thru Sunday October 20th. Saturday we went to IOA. It was pouring buckets Saturday morning and Hagrids was closed. When the rain slowed down, they opened the line telling people they were hoping to open the ride
We will be in the same boat for our 1.5 days in December. It'll be dh, myself, ds, d-dil, and dgd (who will be too short to ride ANYTHING)! I understand all need to get in line together to do the child swap but I'm not thinking that will be feasible with a 15 month old. Has anyone had luck and what was your strategy for this?Can someone give me a strategy for riding this when we have a toddler? We can get there at park opening but probably can't get to the ride as quickly as fast walking adults without kids. We have 3 people that want to ride and one toddler that won't be able to. Any tips/ideas on what to do?
You're going to have to break up and take the toddler to the play areas while the others ride. I don't think you want to be taking the toddler with you through the line. This is one time where the child swap isn't the best. I'd have a couple of people do it at opening and then watch the ap.Can someone give me a strategy for riding this when we have a toddler?
