^Griffon has two such seats in the middle of each row. For Alpengeist, I think its rows 5 and 6 (or 4 and 5)--just look for the "Diamond" sign over the loading area.

I suppose even if Viking Voyage were included on the Quick Queue it wouldn't be a ride I would feel I would have to ride over and over again. I have enjoyed most GCI's I have been on, but none of them really stand out to me as feeling much different from one other. The only possible exception is Mystic Timbers, just because of its close trees and interaction with the river rapids ride.


Oh, it seems as if there's a bunch of different tiers of Quick Queue now. The one Bill's talking about is Quick Queue Unlimited. There's also Quick Queue Unlimited Plus, which apparently has all of the above for unlimited rides, plus a single skip-the-line one time each on Invadr, Tempesto, Mach Tower, and... Loch Ness Monster? Seriously? Okay, BGW, whatever floats your boat...

Anyway, those ones are $75 apiece. It's your call, but I think you should probably be good if you just hop right over to Invadr at rope drop.

Oh wow, I just searched "Quick Queue Unlimited" and totally missed that. Honestly though, that's stupid. I've never seen a line for Mach Tower, Loch Ness is generally a walk on unless it's first thing in the morning and you only get a single use on InvadR and Tempesto. If it were unlimited (as the name implies) it might be worth it, but that's insane.

It's not Unlimited, it's Unlimited PLUS (some other things that are actually quite limited)

I found out about this when I was there a few weeks back... asked the guy manning the gate if they were selling single-use Quick Queues (the line was estimated at about 45 minutes, and I had no problem dropping a $20 to avoid my kid and I standing in that). That's when he dropped the knowledge bomb of Quick Queue Unlimited Plus, I immediately said eh, eff that, and hung out in the line anyway. Thankfully it moved pretty quickly and ended up only being about 25 minutes after all.

It's 1030 at night, we're stranded in DC with our airplane placed on indefinite standby for maintenance, and it's supposed to rain all day tomorrow. Not a good sign of things to come for our solo day at the park tomorrow, before heading to the outer banks for a week. Fml

^ Aw man! I'm so sorry Prozach! I hope everything still works out for you at the park despite the flight hiccups!

I love donkeys more than me.
