I would assume the latter rather than the former.

I'm guessing this might be to expand the line considering the increase in attendance DAK is about to get they will probably need more space for people using this line.

No worries. I appreciate your bringing it to my attention. I read to fast. EE is great fun and I love how fast the single rider line moves when we visit in mid August. It would be very disappointing to be there when the single rider line was closed.

No biggy - just wasn't sure if you caught that or not, and I wanted to give you a little jab :). My family and I like single rider here as well, we use it on EE more than any other ride by far.

Yes. You're right. My apologies. I deleted my post.

I hope this is to install shade over that queue.

I think maybe you missed the part of his question where he said "When they close single rider..."

If you are in the single rider line they will put you next to another single rider or next to someone who is in a group with an odd number of people (each row has only two seats). I always ride as a single rider since the rest of my family does not do "big" roller coasters. The last time I rode it I was seated next to a young guy who told me he was a roller coaster expert and travels around the country riding as many roller coasters as he can. I got a huge laugh when I saw the ride picture. I am screaming my head off and he is facing the camera grinning and pointing in a cool "hey there" pose. It was a fun moment.

When they close single rider, do they take odd numbered parties and sit strangers next to each other? Or do they leave empty seats next to singles or odd numbered groups? Just curious how this affects capacity.

That would make it the "Beti," right?

In other news, the Yeti is still in "B" mode. :D
