Vote of the week: Over, under, around or through?
Published: July 26, 2013 at 8:43 AM
You've lucked out and are enjoying a day in a nearly-empty theme park. The crowd's so much lighter than expected that the parks' employees haven't had the chance (or bothered) to take down the serpentine queue chains blocking your path to an attraction's entrance.
What do you do?
Do you go around the chains, like an obedient theme park visitor, wasting time walking back and forth on your way into the ride? Or do you take a shortcut?
If you opt for a more direct route, do you swing your leg up over the chain to climb over it, or do you hunch down and scooch under to make your way toward the entrance?
Or, do you take the "former theme park employee" option and just start unclasping chain lengths to open a direct route by yourself? It's Vote of the Week time.
I have a feeling that one's answer to this question probably reveals something about our approach to much more than just visiting theme parks. Debate away in the comments, and, as always, thank you for reading and spreading the word about Theme Park Insider.
