    Rides that have single rider

    Hi all.
    I'm a long time reader but hardly ever post.

    Is there is a list of rides in the Resort that have single rider?

    Splash doesn't always do it. When I was there two weeks ago they weren't.

    GRR in DCA also does Single Rider.

    I actually just asked a CM yesterday at Disneyland. Splash Mountain is the only one in Disneyland. I was hoping Space Mountain would have....

    Unless it changed after the new year, Splash Mountain is listed as a Single Rider attraction on the park guidemaps.

    I believe Indy used to have Single Rider, but it was removed sometime last year or the year before. Big Thunder would be an awkward ride for Single Rider - having to sit next to a stranger and sliding into them since its just a single restraint across the bench seat. And Pirates' line moves so quick, that theres really no point in Single Rider - kind of like how FastPass wasnt even worth the effort for Pirates. I agree that Space should have Single Rider.

    We used the single rider pass for Indy quite a bit. The line went quick. Sorry to see it go.

    Re: Rides that have single rider

    I miss the Indy Single Rider too. I asked why it was taken out... when single riders went through the exit, the entirely missed the safety video/slide show that all other riders (including fastpass) view. So thank the lawyers.

    The Maliboomer and Mulholland Madness do have single rider options, but when the park is slow, they don't always use them (in my experience). Just ask at the line entrance.
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    Re: Rides that have single rider

    Why not just send the single riders up with the fast pass people?

    Because then the single riders would get mixed up with everybody else. Theres eventually a merge point with FastPass and Stand-By so at a certain point in the line you dont know who had FastPass and who didnt anymore.
    If I'm not mistaken, the whole point of Single Rider is to help the ride maintain full capacity - so spots aren't wasted - and so people by themselves can get on quick since they arent with a large party.
    If Single Rider was mixed in with everybody else it would just kind of mess the whole system up..

    Re: Rides that have single rider

    ^ They should. In some cases, there are 3 lines for a ride( SB, FP, SR). They should actually just do SB and FP/SR. But I guess they want SR separate so they know everyone in that line is 1 party instead of 3, 1, 4, 1, 1, 2 party etc. Might get a wee bit confusin.

    Yes, the guidemaps do list SR attraction. But I'm not sure if they still do that, I assume so.

    I MISS THE INDY SR AS WELL!!

    For USH: There's 2 rides that have SR, JP and ROTM. Most of the time JP doesn't need SR. Most of the time ROTM's SR is open, but for some reason last week they didn't have it open and I didn't want to wait 30 minute standby.

    If this is the case, then I wonder why Space Mountain doesn't have Single Rider - the exit has a couple video monitors playing the saftey speil since handicapped riders enter through the exit. I wonder why Single Riders aren't allowed since the saftey video would obviously be seen.

    Because sorting out single riders coming in from the exit would slow things down for Space.

    They have 10 seconds to load and 10 seconds to unload each rocket or else the ride breaks down. Before they had the assisted loading platform, if someone was in a chair and they couldn't get in a rocket within 10 seconds they couldn't ride.

    Re: Rides that have single rider

    ^ Why would it? There's always a group lining up behind another group to get in. Would it be a problem for the CM to count the # of guests to fit in the trains?? But, I would understand if it's just too fast.
