(Larger or mobility impaired riders can wait for one a a few four-seat logs.)
Since most logs are five-seaters, Disney's now introduced a single rider line for Splash. According to one friendly neighborhood Theme Park Insider correspondent, Disney now has single rider lines for Indiana Jones and Maliboomer, as well.
The single rider line is a great little secret for theme park visitors who want to pack as much in a trip as possible. As I mentioned in my recent trip report, I rode Men in Black at Universal Studios Florida three times in the time it took groups to get through the line once.
You don't have to be visiting a park by yourself to use a single rider line. Just have your whole group go through. When you get to the load area, you'll be broken up, but likely will ride in adjacent vehicles. In some cases, a couple of you might even get to ride together.
But you'll all exit the ride within moments of each other. And you'll have saved many minutes (even over an hour on some rides) that you otherwise would have wasted on line.
Single rider lines are more convenient than ride reservation systems like FastPass and Universal Express, since you don't have to wait until later to ride. And since there are no reservations, you won't get shut out late in the day like you can with Fastpass.
Indeed, late in the day, most single rider lines become walk-ons, as it was for me on Men in Black. It's like visiting an empty park--even on a busy day!
IMHO, unless you are on a date with a significant other, or visiting with a small child whom you don't want riding alone, single rider lines are *the* way to wait for any theme park attraction that offers them.
What are some other attractions that offer single rider lines? What's the typical single rider wait on those rides, compared with the normal wait time? Let's build a list here that folks can use to help shave wait time minutes off their next theme park trip.
Indiana Jones Adventure
Soarin' Over California
Grizzly River Run
I use these almost every time I go to The Disneyland Resort. Sometimes it's actually quicker than a fastpass, and sometimes it goes slower. The maximum wait one of my family members waited in single rider was 35 minutes for Soarin' Over california( the wait was 90 minutes that day and people in front of her got mean to 1 of the cast members waiting there, so they made everyone wait longer than they would have. )I use single rider every time I go and I cut the poular rides wait times out. For example: Mulholland Madness is a small wild mouse coaster with very long wait times( 40-65 minutes ), using single rider you can get on quicker than the actual wait time that is not worth waiting that long to ride.
At Alton Towers, Air has a single rider queue.
At Chessington World of Adventures, Samurai has a single rider queue.
