Although I will say they were moving the line pretty well with their system.


what do you mean by having to tell the employee... when i went last week they had it where you just walked into the single line


I guess since the line was so long and they were using overflow queues today. They actually had an employee walk me to the single rider line. They need to just put a chain or divider to separate the line.

Negative - the bottom of the pond is unpainted. The water from what I saw in a video interview is treated and cleaned, with the pumps being the stuff to the left of the transfer shed.

The lighting as is right now at night looks fantastic; especially that spotlight. No complaints here.


To each their own, but I think the water looks much better as a blue, rather than a murky brown.


the lighting on the ride looks great, but think it would look better with lighting along bottom of the pond (or a fountain in the center they could light).

I strongly suspect the spotlight is only there for opening weekend. (Fiesta is awful close to flightpaths to the airport for it to be permanent)

It was being used last night for the VIP event. It was pretty much done from what I could see, except the flames weren't working. Below is a pic I snapped as I was walking by.

The renderings of the queue building showed flames on top of the pillars to the left and right of the Wonder Woman statue.

^I’m not really sure since I was using the single rider line. I maybe waited 30 minutes at first then about an hour later. They were asking everyone to wait in the overflow queue then they separate us in the main queue. They really need a divider in the main queue. They were telling guests as they enter the main queue that it was another 2 hours wait. Of course for some reason around 1pm, they took a train off so I bet you could almost double that 2 hour wait then.

I highly recommend using the single rider line. Someone asked me why they even have a single rider line since everyone is a single rider. It’s the way they group you for the trains. They group the big groups together on the same train normally leaving a seat or two. One of the times it worked out that I sat behind my friend with me.
