They could help their cause with quicker dispatches.

Of course, and I'm sure they are working on it now. It's kind of expected with the ride and operators being new.

SDL is down. It was open for less than an hour after the park opened.

The ride is spectacular, but the people in charge of efficiency should be fired. I just saw a train go by with nine empty seats.

I know management is onsite at the ride working on filling those empty seats, while I continue to hear the dispatch times are 3 to 4 between trains. I'm sure this will get worked out, and honestly not surprised to hear given the load/unload process and not being able to pick wing seats. While I haven't seen it first hand, I would bet most if not all of those 9 empty seats are in the middle.

Sounds like a missed opportunity for a single riders line.

Totally forgot about the single rider line! Wasn't that the purpose of the middle staircase? I thought they had one for Skyrush.

I bet it more has to do with guests either not wanting willing to split their groups between trains, nor allowing people jumping ahead of them in order to fill the train.

I dunno, it's space that might ultimately be taken up by Fast Track riders.

Skyrush is not part of the Hershey fast track program.
