On my last visit (11-24-2009), when I waiting for them to get the ride back up after it temporarily went 101, I couldn't help but notice that most rockets had about 1-3 empty seats...and seeing as how this ride sees long wait times on an almost daily basis, it got me thinking...
...why isn't there a single ride line for Space Mountain?
It would be perfect if they decided to add a single-rider line to Space Mountain? It would provide people going to ride by themselves a short wait.
Now, I told this to a cast member, but she said that it would be impossible to add one 'due to operational matters'.
I always figured that a single-rider line would work if single riders would enter through the exit, similar to how the handicap board the attraction. But instead of using the seperate loading station, they would wait by the front of the line until they are called.
I don't see any flaws with it, but then again, I don't fully understand how the attraction's boarding procedures work.
What does everyone else think?
