Vote of the week: Left or right? Which line do you choose?
You've been there. You've made the decision. Now it's time to reveal it to the world. When the queue splits on those really long theme park rides, which side of the line do you pick... and why?
this really depends on the ride:
For Dueling Dragons I always pick fire, and for everything else except Tower of Terror and Dinosaur, I go left. I guess since I am left handed i just tend to go in that direction.
Ok now I'm going to start going right
More people tend to go right...
I've always heard that more people go right. So the fact that more people on here are going left is probably an enthusiast thing. (meaning we've all seen the "more people go right" thing on some web site)
Depends on the ride, but with most of my experiences, I go left. I do like to switch it up though, that way I have the full ride experience.
I almost always go left, I have read studies that claim that since most people are right handed that they will go right far more often than left.
I also believe that the general public always goes right and going left therefore will always be shorter. It is also my belief that the park knows this and makes the right side queue a bit longer to accommodate the majority of people going in that side.
I used to head off in the left direction when the lines split off, but lately I have learned that the majority of people feel the same way (whether they are left or right handed). The line tends to have a greater vere off to the right and seems to almost continue when heading left. Most people chose the line that looks like it is a continuation of the line they are already in. I find it quicker going to the right. Hard to explain. Do I make any sense at all?
How come there is not an option for "Whichever way my wife tells me?"
I don't exactly know which rides you're referring to, the ones like X w/two sides or the racing coasters or Superman TE w/two sides? I would've like to have know more specific info so I can give an accurate response. I chose left but seems as though so did everyone else, lol. Usually, if there are two sides, like the racing coasters, the left is less full so I dunno, if they're the same exact track, I choose whichever line is shorter. Those w/different trax such as Rolling Thunder or Rebel Yell (one side backwards) or Dueling Dragons, you know I have to ride both so that's why I was wondering about specific coasters or rides.
My guess is that the question refers to which line when both go to the same ride. If the ride at the end of the line is different (IE: Gwazi, Dueling Dragons), then we have our reasons for picking one or the other.
Yeah I pretty much figured that but honestly, I really don't recall any "split" in a que line other than when it gets right at the end to where you choose your seat.
I am so General Public...seems I always end up going right. Why ? Cuz its right, even if its wrong. Hey whats in this Koolaid anyway ?
Whichever way I go, 4 out of 5 times I end up choosing the wrong side. I usually go Left. Based on reading all these comments, going left must be an enthusiast thing, as suggested.
