    Heard a rumor they are doing a one month rehab mid October to mid November.

    It'd make sense since HHN will be using the queue for a maze location. So it makes it easier for daytime operations

    3115F78E-1363-49E6-8591-915BCF6BF127.jpeg I was just browsing the USH app and saw that WaterWorld now has a Virtual Line! Anyone know if this is new and how it works?

    I wouldn't look too much into that.

    Why would a show need a virtual line?

    If they were testing Virtual Queue on the apps for something happening later this month, my guess would fesibly be that it'd be related to Universal Hollywood wanting to test Virtual Queue on Jurassic World, albeit in a similar way to how Orlando has VQ for Hagrid's on the app.

    I would love a virtual line for the show. On busy days, you usually have to arrive at least 15-30 minutes early, and you still might not get in. This way, I can reserve in advance and show up closer to show time.

    Plus, with Maze construction taking up so much of the queue, it's easier for everyone to have the guests wait somewhere else!

    I'd Kill for a Virtual Q for Horror Nights, the lines there get insane.

    Virtual Line has properly arrived for Waterworld, don't know if it'll be permanent; but it's happening now.

    It says “Summer 2019” on the app (likely due to the mess of crowds while HHN construction goes on in the main queue), but we’ll just have to wait and see as you said.

    There would still be huge lines. Comic-con does virtual lines / time slot based reservations for signings and exclusives and what not. Trust me, it does not help at all and HHN would be worse.

    How? Isn't the whole point I put my name in and then show up on time and walk in or wait ten mins and walk in? Like Fast Pass

    Food Ordering at Disneyland has become from what I hear really great and helps cut down on wait times and I hear Maxpass cuts down on waiting in line as well.

    Queues hold people efficiently, if they are not in queues then they'll spread out into the park and make the park appear more crowded.

    Sure, then open up more of the park. They close down 1 and a half lands.
    Open Potterland and allow people to be there and let those rides and restaurants be filled with people

    Make Silly Fun Land a Dance floor and have the ride open....to me its why I prefer Knotts way of thinking everything is open and along with the mazes. Ghostride has a 2 hour wait on most nights so it totally helps eat people up.

    Because they are testing it out because I hear the secret of pets is going to use it all the time

    CF6A5BD5-7BB9-44A9-A6CE-EF72E4E5420A.png Doesn't look like they are using the virtual line today. Maybe its not super busy but they are lining up in a regular line.
