Vote of the week: How many in your party?
Written by Robert Niles
I long ago lost count how many hours I've spent working the load position on various theme park attraction. Hour after hour, day after day, it's the same question:Tweet
"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.)
