even though its a "classic", i once queued for half an hour for the wild mouse at blackpool pleasure beach. i went on it with a mate as we were not allowed to have individual cars. i have never experienced pain like it, my legs and shoulders were being bashed everywhere and i was in pain when i got off. Won't be doing that again

The Haunting at Drayton Manor. I queued just 20minutes for it, and thought it was alright but nothing special, but then I rode Hex and compairing the two I realise The Haunting was rubbish.

Meh. I queued 45minutes for Rita, right at the end of the day. And I got front row.

That Manhatten Express video looks PAINFUL!!

I thought G-force was quite good to be completely honest, the worst ride ive ever queued for is this parachute ride at wicksteed park, basically you sit in cars under an umbrella, while it goes round in circles.

I queued for this for over an hour

I'm supprised how many people have said Hex as that's an amazing ride and has videos in the queue line.

But the worst ride I've queued for and in fact the worst ride I've ridden is Samurai at Thorpe Park. Now let me tell you a little story until 2003 I would visit Chessington ride all the rides including the best ride in the park: Samurai. This ride was 1:30 mins of pure madness and was easilly the best flat ride I've ever been on and it even put quite a few rollercoasters to shame. Then in late 2003 it was anounced that it would be moved to TP for 2004. Now I was happy to hear this as now TP would have another great ride under its belt. But alas it was never to be. Firstly it was given a slightly embarasing new paint scheme, then people who rode it on opening said it sucked but this didn't put me off. So I visited TP and rode it. It was slower than a rusty roundabout. Latter in the year it was sped up but this made no difference.

Tbh I have more fun walking from Colossus to Nemesis Inferno than riding this piece of garbage. RIP Samurai if only you were strong enough to help me fight off the flamming I may get.

I knew i would see this ride appear on this thread

I think its a balance to be honest but I dont think any ride is worth a 2 hour queue for what is normally such a short ride.

I have never had to queue more than 10 minutes for X no way out and i actually really like it, its not worth waiting more than 10 minutes for but i still think its underated, i find it really funny and a change to the normal coasters, its very unique and stupid and insane and thats why i like it. backwards and darkness is quite entertaining, However if i had waited an hour for it not impressed. I liked black hole to

I cant be the only one to like X no way out?

Just dont queue very long for it

I once waited an hour to ride Enterprise and it was rubbish

I quite enjoy X/:No Way Out too so you're not alone. It's made twice as fun if you play boggies on it. 8)

It is bad Alton rapids are far better, nothings happen on it, you just bob about a bit in one wave pool section and thats it, no watefalls like Altons or nothing, rubbish.

Well be fair, Congo River Rapids are just as bad as Rumba Rapids. Nothing happens for about 4 minutes, until you get to a set of waterfalls, which if your very lucky will hit the boat. The you drivel on for another few minutes before getting sprayed at by fountains. Rumba isn't the best but it has some deecnt moments.

Anyway the worst ride I have queued for is Inferno in 2003. All the hype of Nemesis, made me believe it would be amazing. Turns out it was absolute rubbish.

I insist we go on it because its a good ride, you only dislike it because its better than Oblivion and Air :lol: Also we never have to queue for it, the worst you have had to wait with me for that is 35 minutes.

I think Rita, queueing 2 n half hours for that piece of crap was the biggest waste of time ever.

No Queue for this ride as i went in off season - but if I had to que at all I wouldnt bother. Infact to cut that short, I wouldn't even bother! :P

Twister At Universal. You were given a lot of hype in the queue lines/ pre show then you were walked into a room that was like a stage then some big fans came on and they blew some things about (there was a cow on a large pice of rope that "flew" past. Then you went back out :lol: :lol:

:D :D
