The latest rumors about the Soarin’ queue are interesting. Our sources say that the old giant still pictures are being replaced with projection screens to be used with a series of new video projectors installed throughout the queue. From the sound of things, a couple of Cast Members will be working the queue and running some kind of interactive game that will use the screens to entertain the guests.
Totally. I lucked out the one time I braved the line to ride it as I was by myself and they needed a single rider to fill in an empty space. So my wait was 10 minutes instead of 45.
Nearly every time I've ridden Soarin I've been by myself, and almost every time as soon as I pass the "merge" point, and go either to the left or right, a CM comes up looking for a single rider. I always wait to see if there are any before me, but there never have been, so I always get to skip that last part of the line. Woohoo!
