When it rain the spinball SRQ is amazing....only 3 per car so a single rider sent out on almost every train, plus you are never sat next to anyone, alway next to the empty seat.

We get on about 3-4 times in 10 minutes. The rule now is if it starts to rain - head to spinball!

Last weekend the SRQ for nemesis was amazing. We did it about 10 - 12 times in under an hour due to getting off the ride and getting straight back on the one we got off. Much better than the stated 70 mins. I would definitely recommend using the SRQs across the park apart from air, which is often longer than the main queue. :x

Yes, both do. Air tend to send single riders down in groups of 10, but only to one of the loading bays.
Rita's SRQ can be quite slow. When I was there a few weeks ago it sometimes went 3-4 trains without a single rider.
The best thing to do is judge the length of both queues when you're there.

Hope that helps :)

Single Rider Queues

They do but it's a lottery whether the Rita one is open, on the last two times i've visited it's been closed and I was told to join the main queue.

Air's is quite slow moving, when it's busy it's quite likely that you'll be waiting somewhere near to the main queue time.

Hope this helps

Experienced the SRQ for the first time on a visit earlier this week. Towards the end of the day me and my lad joined the SRQ for AIR. They called for 3 groups of 5, then 2 groups of 15, then nothing moved for a good half hour. There were 3 people behind us who had left the main Q to join the SRQ, they remembered who was in front of them in the main Q as they went through and onto the ride. 10 minutes passed before we went through, getting on the ride soon after. We lost out by about 15mins in the SRQ so never tried it on day 2.

Just a tip. Nemesis' SRQ is great for getting those all-important back row rides, now every train seems to have its back row loaded from the PP queue... (Which rarely seems to contain even groups :P )
