Use it when it feels like it would be best, it should be quiet on a school day as the hype has now died down, save as many as you can for a busier day if your going again this season (are they only valid this season? if not, use them next season )

Looking at the current ride times if it's dry they still go up to 90 to 100 minutes at around midday but in 3 weeks time I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated thanks people .
You could always use the Single Rider queue. It's free, but you probably won't sit next to your friends.
What it doesn't do however is stuff up the main queue for the purpose of money grabbing - it fills the empty seats

get real... obviously due to safety issues is why its got shoulder restraints
i'd rather be safe than buzz off having a lap bar haha
Blue Fire has a lapbar and it has a pretty intense zero g roll in it so obviously lapbars are safe otherwise that wouldnt be allowed
yes, and also the fact that only incredibly large people would have to worry, for everyone else, they are as safe as OTSR's

I've only been on the ride once on a very busy day, but my impression was it was the same style of restraint mechanism used on typical euro fighters. Is it close to allowing someone the same size on saw?
The reason I ask is I'm going with a couple of friends on Friday but I'm concerned as one of my friends couldn't get on saw last time due to his quite large shoulders stopping the rest of the restraint coming from anywhere near his belly. (My main gripe with OSTR's).

Wasn't it confirmed though that they wanted to do more with the exterior?Maybe they were planning on adding more effects in the tunnel but as the opening date was pushed back twice they cut out theming the inside and outside of the building.
