If you set it off you get a red handstamp, if not you get a blue one. The ride ops check handstamps as they check the train and if you have one then they make sure you put your phone in the pouch. They get people through the metal detector quickly because you don’t need to clear it without setting it off, if you set it off they just stamp you and move on.
I was there yesterday as well. And I also noticed they are more biased to the regular line than the fastlane. The fast lane line was the longest I ever seen it yesterday at one point. Going well out of the station and down the stairs. When they switched ride ops it was alot of confusion as to who has what in there pocket and was their hands stamped before. Past the metal detector in the station it was mostly empty at points due to the one by one nature of the metal detetctor. people with phanny packs and small book bags are still handed blue sheets to put their stuff in the fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo. I think the system is clever. But the wait times are gonna be horrendous during the summer .
In other news anaconda had a full queue well into the plaza at one point as well as i305. It also seems as though more and more ride ops are E-stopping all of the rides due to cell phones .
There is also a massive land clearing right behind the first turnaround on grizzly. Looks like it was done quite recently as it wasnt there opening day.
