^ Believe it or not, but Joker never really has a queue. Typically it's no more than 15 minutes and it sends trains out at a reasonably steady pace.

For coasters, Pandemonium gets the longest queue but it has an unmarked single rider line up the Flash Pass ramp.


Another secret Single Rider line is the one for Batman the Dark Knight, you go up the exit and they will let you board in any open seat. This is good because Batman is one of the few coasters that gets a line thanks to its awful operations

In past years, Batman usually didn't have much of a queue, but I've seen it with a much longer queue than usual this year due to the slow dispatches.

I wonder if they would replace that Wipeout with an Endeavor since that ride pad has the space and it would be similar in size to the old Flying Enterprise... or whatever they called it.

I took my singing and dancing fun to the park today and rode Cyborg Hyper Drive. I couldn't hear Grid's voice over the ride noise, but there's a video of the ride with the ride audio on YouTube and Grid's voice is definitely SEXY. "Sabotage? Quite the opposite." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cgf-5pvtoWc

That wouldn't be a bad idea, that old Chance Wipeout gets a lot of downtime and I wouldn't be surprised if Kollider/Joker's Wildcard/whatever you call it is taken off line. Nightwing old pad in the middle of S:ROS's finale has been a spot that has seen a surprising number of occupants. It'd be nice to just have one solid, headache free anchor attraction there that's family friendly. Not everyone can ride S:ROS or a Cyborg dark spin-and-puke.
