Vote of the week: How long are you willing to wait?
Published: May 1, 2009 at 7:39 AM
And so, our vote of the week. How long are you willing to wait? Not for the latest premier blockbuster, but for established rides, especially ones that you love to ride again and again.
To help answer this question, perhaps it would help to think of a specific situation:
You're ready to get in the line to ride (or see) your favorite theme park attraction. It's your favorite, so you have been on it before. You take a look at the posted wait time, which we will assume is accurate.
At what number do you turn around and say, "uh, maybe later"?
Or, let's put it another way, if the wait time were not posted, at what point during the wait would you start getting mad about the amount of time you had spent in line?
The fact we're talking about re-rides is important. I know that many readers will wait just about any amount of time to go on a hot new ride - so I want to take that situation off the table. What's your upper limit for wait times for established theme park attractions?
Tell us your ideas about wait times, in the comments, please.
