Something that I don't think has been mentioned yet is that Universal is doing something very wrong with the Qbots. For example on Hulk they would scan your qbot, then make you put it in a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo?!!? WTF?!?! Come on Universal, the Six Flags parks don't even require this. It has a carabiner for a reason!
^ I can see that, but it will create so many other problems. Remember, guests are stupid. What happens let say if.... the person they checked in with gets bumped from rotation, and it's a different person now at the greeter position? You've seen guests at the fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo. How many of them can't figure out such a simple concept of renting them, even when they are free, and it takes someone 10 minutes to go through the process.
The device is on a very secure carabiner for a reason. If anything they should just tell them "put it in a secure pocket" which also makes no sense because I guarantee you that carabiner is going to be way more secure than any pocket!
Having to check in, and then leave the person who checked you in, go and perform a task, and then come back again, makes no sense. It's actually an inconvenience to the guest and it's potentially confusing on top of it.
And I'll be using it during our trip this summer at whatever park has them!!!
I totally agree with the above though, the fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo thing makes absolutely NO sense. No other park that I've used Qbot at has this policy, and many of them have rides way more intense than Hulk.
I'll just kindly stick it in my pocket, there is no reason to put it in a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo, unless they really are going to play the "overbearing mother" role with these things, which makes absolutely no sense.
I don't mean to be a GP, but what makes Q-Bots any better than the existing ticket system for the guests who use it? It seems like it's much easier to just scan a ticket and step into line than to fiddle with a Q-Bot and wait a set number of minutes first. In addition, Q-Bots are water-sensitive, need to be returned, and require an educational video that makes lines longer and slower at every location that sells them. I have no problems with line skipping or improving existing systems, but, to me, this seems like a step backward.
Sorry to dissent from the majority, but can someone help me understand why this is the majority opinion?
