    I’m not talking about the actual queue experience. I’m asking about the outward appearance of the coaster sign or entrance.

    Which is your favorite?


    For me there’s an easy winner. You may be familiar with the dragon’s mouth entrance to Dragon Mountain.

    But I also love the style of the signage throughout Marineland, and did you catch the sly cleverness of the building at the queue turnstile?

    Tonnerre de Zeus has a good one, walking between the legs of a statue of Zeus, and if you are cheeky enough to glance upwards as you do so you'll find he's wearing bright polka dot briefs; there's a great sense of humour throughout the park.

    That dragon mountain entrance looks great!

    Speaking of dragons, Dueling Dragons RIP, in its prime, had a pretty great entrance.

    Others I can think of would be the new Hulk entrance at the same park, Gringotts with that great dragon, Beast's great logo, Millennium Force's ridiculous huge ass sign, and, actually, El Toro. I just really like how the sign and plaza look and their placement right by the first two hills.

    I think this is the only acceptable answer.

    It's gotta be either Banshee's, Gatekeeper's, or Steel Vengeance's! Mystic timbers (IMO) would be a close runner up too, as the plaza makes for a great atmosphere!

    Entrance- i305. There's something about that whole plaza that still awes me to this day.

    Dragon Mountain would probably be my favorite.
    I’m so old I remember walking between the dragons on Dueling Dragons! LMAO

    Really struggled to think of one on this one, nothing sprang to mind.
    Gonna go for Revenge of the Mummy (USS) for now.
    Stepping through it and into the queue still gives me the chills, and that's not just the air-con.

    Edit: knew I had a better pic somewhere.
