I would guess it was because of the threat of lightning strikes rather than the mechanism.

What do you think this is? The American Victory at the Alamo? :wink: :lol:

According to the Texas state board of education it is. :D

Oh I am soooo confused :? Are you guys playing Dr. Who?! :shock:
I, for one, would love to see the single rider on any attraction that has an odd number of seats on the ride vehicle...or an even amount of seats ;)

Yes, let's not stray or perform any "revisionist posting" (not naming names, Wizz). I know I would love a single rider line on BTMRR and Space Mtn.

I would think the most popular rides like BTMRR, Space Mt., Splash Mt. and Indiana Jones would need a single rider since they're the ones that usually have the longest lines. Matterhorn goes pretty quick though BTMRR goes kinda fast too.

Gosh, I have spent many, many minutes in the line for both BTMRR and the Matterhorn :shock: And I am fine as long as the line is outside and there is fresh air, but as soon as I am just surrounded by people to the front, rear and both sides of me, I am not a happy camper :shock: :(
I always agonize over which side to choose for the Matterhorn (and Space Mountain) Then I try to pick out someone distinctive that chooses the other side to see which of us gets to the loading area first. The "choose the left side because everyone generally veers to the right" philosophy doesn't always work...

I agree about Splash Mtn. Ever since in opened in 1992, the lines for it at WDW are still long sometimes.

Sometimes? Unless it's raining or very cold out, it is long all the time!
We are all a little weird
And life's a little weird,
And when we find someone whose
Weirdness is compatible with ours,
We join up with them and fall in
Mutual weirdness and call it Love.”
― Dr. Seuss

Really? Every time I go on Matterhorn, the line moves quite often since they load pretty fast. I'm always going for the Tomorrowland side (the left). I just prefer that one more than the right side. BTMRR isn't as bad as I used to think. I manage to have something to keep me occupied in line so maybe that's why it goes fast for me? I have no idea.

...or when there's a parade passing by; one time I was there that cut the line down by half! :D
