    People watch. There's nothing more entertaining than watching an operator having to tell someone to get out of the other side of the train, rather than the side which the air gates are on.

    Thank you! I will try to figure out the text color issue. Currently trying to see if it has something to do with using high contrast mode and Microsoft edge together.

    Ah in general, are phones/tablets not allowed in lines? I vaguely recall last time I went to an amusement park 10 + years ago playing on a Gameboy and it being no problem.

    Right so I have this professor who is pretty fat/old, not yet obese but getting there and he rides some sort of thing that is halfway wheelchair halfway slow indoor motorbike. It has a simple name - forgetting it.

    Fat guys with bad knees - walking stick or cane is a godsend

    They do have benches in some queues in China.

    Almost all parks allow anything in line as long as it's properly secured/put in a bin when boarding. Off the top of my head some rides at Universal Studios (Revenge of the Mummy, Battlestar Galactica, Rip Ride Rockit etc) and now Steel Vengeance have metal detectors so all electronic devices must be put in a locker.

    Does the park offer a disabled pass? If you can qualify then it's better than carrying a camping seat/navigating a wheelchair through the queue

    I'm either chatting with those I'm with as I rarely go alone or people watch. Always fun playing the "spot the coaster nerd" game while in line. The stereotypes are fantastic.

    I don't know about you, but when I'm at parks alone, or on my way to parks, I turn on the CoasterForce podcast The Drunk Riders featuring @Snoo @antonis and some jack ass named Tom.

    They. Are. A. Hoot.

    Check out our latest episode as proof.

    Usually I'm on my phone or shooting the :emoji_poop: and goofing off with those i'm at the park with. Sometimes, a mix of both.
