What is the worst ride you have bothered to queue for?

Tue Aug 09, 2005 10:37 am

Hi Guys,

I was just wondering what evryone's most dissappointing ride memories are? Mine is queueing for 90mins to go on Back to the future in Universal Orlando. If i had known it was a simulator i wouldn't have bothered.

In the towers it has to be the time I queued for an hour for Hex

well i remember queueing for the squirrel nutty ride (this was a while back when i was about 6 or 7), i thought it wa similar to a pedal monerail (because they have pedal in) but you just sat there, i remember being very bored :roll:

out of the towers would have to be queueing for 1hr 1/2 for lost river ride at flamingo land. i thought you did something with the rest of the track but the only decent bit really was the drop- it would be better if the animals were close enough to see but i guess they can't control them :D

The worst was queing for this ride at Oakwood, called Brer rabbit's party or something. I went on thinking it to be a quality dark ride, when it turned out to be the worst piece of rubbish. A welsh Rabbit rapping! Never again.

NOTE: Queu was 30 mins!
Argh! REVISION

10 minutes for Excalibur at DMP...

Walk on is too much of a wait for that...
If you\'re reading this post it means I have emerged from my TTF cave during my annual forage for food.

Steeplechase at BPB. It looks like a fun ride but I swear it's so unsafe! I was literately slipping off the horse and because I was squeezing my legs so tightly to prevent myself from falling I got cramp in my leg! I will never ever go on that glorified rocking horse again! :D

About half an hour for Jaws at Universal. It lasted like a minute. But I went on it 2 years later, and it was better.
