So when we go, we get in line at the gates about 45 minutes before the park opens, we wind up about 40 feet from the gates on average. That's about an average to high average ride wait time when we go to the parks, so it just about right.
I've often wondered, how long would people wait? How early do those folks up at the very front get here? How many people are content with sleeping in and getting there an hour after they open, still pretty light crowds, but how you be from out of town and not be up at six and ready to go in at 7:15? That's what I don't understand.
