    Single rider

    I know that there must be threads about this subject but I could not find them. I am going to DLR this weekend with my boyfriend. Hel likes to go on the 'big' rides like Splash and Space but I don't. Can he do the single rider thing? How does it worK?

    Splash Mountain is the only one with Single Rider at DL. At DCA theres Soarin, California Screamin, Grizzly River Run, and Maliboomer.

    You just get a pass from a CM at the entrance of the ride and you go through the exit. I dont know which rides do it except for Cali. Screamin and Splash.

    Actually, when I did Splash Single Rider on the 17th they didn't give out any passes. I just walked in the exit and told the CMs there that we were waiting for Single Rider.

    He's Right. Splash is the only single riders line at Disneyland.

    Splash might be the only 'single rider', but I definitely noticed an advantage to doing some of the bigger rides by myself.

    On a crowded Saturday morning, I got through a seemingly lengthy Space Mountain queue rather swiftly because my girlfriend refused to do any more thrill rides (Tower of Terror/Sun Wheel almost scared her off for life).

    Also, I'm not sure if you are a "been there, don't like that" person, or simply are apprehensive about riding the big ones, but unless you have already done so, I always advise to at least give some of 'tamer' coasters (BTMRR, for example) a go. If you are like my gal, you may discover a love for some of the smaller 'thrills'. We were both apprehensive about Matterhorn, for example, but the reality was far tamer than the fear.

    Splash is the fastest single rider line you'll find. It's great.

    They usually use the passes, but when they're running out (or if their stock of passes hasn't made it back from grouper to greeter) they'll just send you on without. Make sure you ask first, though, because if they're not out of passes, they probably won't let you on if you don't have one.

    Re: Single rider

    Thanks so much for the advice! My boyfriend likes Splash but it is too much for me. I used to be able to go on these rides all the time but as I have gotten older, I just don't seem to do well on them. Thunder Mountain is the only one I seem to still get a kick out of.
