**A theme park gift under $10?** *Theme Park Insider: 2016 Year in Review*

"How many in your party?"

When you get the answer, it's time to do the math: How can you fill in the empty seats with these folks, keeping parties together as best you can, while minimizing the number of empty seats?

It's a like playing a live-action version of human Tetris.

So forgive my vote of the week this week. Old habits die hard. :-)

(I understand that this answer often varies. So let's go with the number you tell load personnel *most often* while visiting theme parks.)

Whom do you roll with in theme parks? Let's talk about your theme park crew, in the comments. And, as always, thanks for reading Theme Park Insider! (Please, tell your friends about us, too!)

Even numbers work the best though!

To tell you the truth the hardest group to put on the elevators are groups of 5. Because our rows only fit 4 guests or groups of 3. So I can take the easiest route and just place them in rows one and three (3 guests in row one and 2 guest in row three wich is right behind them). Or I can do it the hard way and put 4 on row six and 1 on the back of row five which I have to explain to them many many times and that they will be sitting to each other. Rows five and six are next to each other and theres no steps or aisle that seperates the rows.

So parties of 5 and 13 are the hardest and the rest are pretty much easy!

Not a good number for most rides if we want to stay together. So of late, we've been taking our chances in the single rider line since we can't sit as a group anyway.

The capacity of a Jungle Cruise boat.

p.s do the math (he,he,he)

WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
