The old queue was very nice but if it came back I would not ride Kingda Ka nearly as much as I am right now. I think we should do this poll over because my oppinion has changed.

Dragster's queue is nothing special so I don't see how that would make it a better ride. KK's old queue looked amazing :)

Its simple TTD still has the same system, while KK decided they needed to use a different one. Its just a matter of wasted space, TTD sits on its footprint, while KK sits on its Footprint and has a large line section to add onto it, for no reason.

Even though Kingda Ka's old queue was amazing and gave the ride a totally different atmosphere, it probably will never return. The hand rails have been taken out, and I believe the fans also. The pathways now have over two years of winter snow and rain damaging it without being even walked on. Only way of it coming back is a major rehabbed on Kingda Ka... which probably won't happen lol.

Also the new queue line has those new wait signs, and they look pernament to me. Sad though, for the old queue had so much detail and was also pretty nice for the summer with the shade and such. It will be missed.

It CAN come back, but would need modifications and probably some kind of approval for safety. But it can certainly come back.

The footprint of a ride is indeed a factor, but you are right, its the other things that make TTD a better ride. However this doesn't exactly help the argument, they wasted alot of space for no reason.

rcdb.com might have some, the reason the queue is cool is because the entire line is between the launch and back to the station tracks.

KK's old queue is WAY better than TTDs which is a boring section of plain switchbacks with grey walls on the side. KK's had a legit jungle theme with appropriate plants, materials, and colors.

The arguement between TTD and KK's theming will go on forever with no end. It is simply a matter of opinion. Does the new queue work and act just as effieciently? Yes. Is it as aesthetically pleasing? No. As for it ever coming back, that is all more then likely a budget issue. They have a queue that works now, and alot of other issues within the park that are definately a higher priority when it comes to budget allocation. From what it seems, in order for them to bring the old queue back it would need alot of money and planning to cover certain danger spots if God forbid something went wrong. They simply cannot spend that money to do that right now with all of the other issues in the park.
