  • Single rider line for ROTR?

    Is there a single rider line for ROTR @ Disneyland? Is this functional on opening day?

  • #2
    No there isn’t one. It is by boarding pass only. Eventually they can do it but right now everyone goes in by boarding group regardless of single rider or not.

      Does a boarding pass require you to be grouped with a small amount of people or is more like 200 people getting in line about the same time?

          Smugglers run has a single rider.

            It will be awhile before a single rider is activated for ROTR. I know in Florida they are still having issues accommodating all the boarding groups on some days. Especially if the ride goes down for any length of time.

              There is no single rider line for Rise, and there will never be one.

                They should do it now but with some type of limits. When our car and the other one departed the station, each car had an empty seat.
                "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, "​ This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???

                  Disney should channel the last of the backup groups into a single rider virtual queue. That way there's no single rider line that gets excessively long, but still maximizing efficiency of the ride's capacity and giving people a chance to ride if they really want to.

                  It's not perfect, but leaving empty seats on a ride when people's boarding groups aren't getting called before the day ends is poor form.

                    They really should do single rider. We had 2 empty seats next to us on Friday when we rode. One thing to note about single rider though in this attraction. You would probably skip part of the attraction in the single rider line.

                      Each boarding group contains an unknown number or people though it has been guesstimated to be around 150-200 people.

                        If you’ve been on ROTR, you’ll know there’s no easy way to do single rider, unless they have you walk backstage to the star destroyer set. If they had single riders use the fast pass queue (at the BB8 area) then you’d get abuse from families or groups saying they are single riders until they get on the Star destroyer.

                          Yeah, I agree. How absurd is it that Disney has built single rider lines for every major ride of the last decade, but not for ROTR?

                            I guess technically they could feed a single rider intro the first part of the experience. Then make another single rider queue for the second part.

                              Not absurd at all. There's no logistical way to do a Single Rider line for this attraction without skipping major parts of the pre-show, Even after the initial pre-show, in the Hangar Bay, there's no real way to make sure the "single riders" stay in a single rider queue unless they are being escorted by a CM...AND THEN, the 2 lines after the hangar Bay would essentially be Standby and Single Rider, which will cause that Standby line to back up even further.

                                That will cause the standby line to back up unnecessarily for a negligible amount of single riders in 2 separate parts of the queue. The only logistically sound way to do single riders, is if the single riders skip the entire pre-show and go straight to the interrogation hallway...which they won't do since that would take guests through backstage areas (same way as if being evacuated from the interrogation hallway)

                                  The only other way I can think of doing it would involve giving each group something with their group count. For example, ask each family/group how many people are with them up-front (prior to entering the main queue) and hand them some sort of themed card/object (something that likely wouldn't be stolen often as a souvenir) that has a count of the number of people, telling the "group leader" to hold it. They can then ask for it where they currently ask you how many are in your crew.

                                  Of course there'd be the issue of people losing them, and a bit of lost efficiency, but with the downtime being experienced I don't think the bit of queue efficiency would be a big deal.

                                    I'm saying that's only the case because WDI designed the ride that way. Knowing full well that the ride may not operate at maximum efficiency without single riders to fill seats, they didn't even design an abbreviated version of the preshow to fill that need? Single riders on the Smugglers Run skip the Hondo animatronic pre-show. Why isn't there a way to skip the transport/hangar bay? WDI should have built that in from the get-go, and ridership is suffering because of it. That's what's absurd, to me.

                                    Why couldn't they build an on-stage entrance to the interrogation room? They did that for Smugglers Run. It's not hard to imagine a "special forces" team being snuck on to the destroyer and randomly placed in a group. WDI should have built that in from the beginning. Who knows, maybe they did, and maybe it was cut along with the dinner show...

                                    Either way, we're already seeing switchbacks in the hangar. My guess is this ride lasts a year before we all get a diminished experience in some form or another.

                                      That saddens me seeing that picture. I think a big part of the experience is the door opening and you seeing that HUGE hangar with stormtroopers all around. When it opens to a herd of cattle, it's going to ruin that.

                                        Fast Pass ruined the Indiana Jones queue. Now you just rush right past everything. Would you do single rider on Haunted Mansion and skip everything before the omnimover part? I guess it depends on the ride. I have no desire to walk through the whole line for space mountain or Thunder Mountain though.
