I want to ride the ride, not fall and break my face then take an ambulance ride.

To out of shape to step over.
I'll un-hook and re-attach chains if it's an option.
Usually I'll walk.
I won't jump over or do the pro wrestling walk over anymore! I've biffed it too many times under estimating the height! If I go under, it's to do a "limbo limbo rock" type of thing!
From there occasionally you find some gaps with chains you can remove. Somewhere along the line they added a new part of the queue under the loading platform which they created because people would avoid the queue at all costs when they saw the line in the park. Not knowing how long the line really is behind the wall that hides the junk yard area.
There was a shortcut put in for folks in wheelchairs to go through the line like everyone else then hit the cut thru and go up the ramps that make the exit. people abused the cut through to bypass the main queue and re-ride so much that they got rid of it.
I am guilty of using that shortcut but only on slow days. Not when the line was beyond that point even if only by a few people. I would exit and then return.
Can I share another pet peeve that has cropped up a lot in my local park. There are countless rides that have now closed/boarded up booth from when the rides had on-board cameras for pictures. So, now you still have to walk through these areas as you exit which in my opinion is just lame. At the very least, turn it into a souvenir stand for that ride.
