Another round of queue testing today & tomorrow at Rock n Roller Coaster. This time, it's being held in the backstage area where the ESPN the Weekend Sports Zone has been held (parking lot between RnR and ToT)

This test will be similar to the test they ran a few months ago, details of which are here: http://www.studioscentral.com/column/studi...r-queue-changes

This looks like a big mess. I don't know about this queue-less thing. I call it the deli counter solution. A big problem with this concept is that it functions kind of like a short-term Fastpass. Of course time in a tent seems better than standing in a line, but it's almost like all the big attractions will have to have this pasture/corral system that gives the illusion of less of a line, rather than actually cutting down time.

I was okay with the first test but this new test in the new area reminds me of people waiting at the airport. It's a lot more of a cattle call, type experience to me. Granted, I wasn't there to wait and a 100 minute wait stinks no matter how you wait.

I dunno.. the current system was certainly out of whack when I was there in March. The timer for the single rider line was off, yet a CM said it was a 10-15 min wait, and i ended up waiting about an hour. Still less than the 90+ that the regular line was, but when I told the wife that Id be in line a few minutes and she has our son and it ends up being vastly different, i can understand the frustration all around. THis new system is interesting

one benefeit i see is that you can sit down 100min standing in a queue could be pretty terrible.

Yeah, It'll definitely be interesting to see what comes of it. I'd love to sit in on the meetings discussing the results of the test!
