New Rule for Planet Snoopy Rides

Recommended Posts

While at Winterfest today, I saw there’s a new rule at Woodstock Gliders. I did not see if it may be applied at other rides. C1ECC488-3F7F-4BCB-B7EE-3048FEFE615D.jpegThoughts?

Might make sense for a small child to be paired with another small child but there is no way two single 200 pound guys would fit in one glider.   I cannot see one adult ever being paired as there is little seat belt slack left, even if the operator tried squeeze play.

They may fit if they make them sit TETRIS style.

This is actually already a thing on a couple of the other rides in Planet Snoopy. Off the top of my head I can think of Peanuts 500, flying ace, and Linus launcher. Its not really a hard rule for some of these rides as some kids just flat out won't ride with others but ride ops try to do it if they can. It's mainly enforced at Peanuts 500 because it has such a low capacity (around 50 cars per hour) so its very important to pair up riders if the line is even somewhat long

Personally I think it may be kind of weird for Woodstock Gliders since only one person controls the fin. If its two kids then it may not be bad but it may be pretty awkward if its two random teenagers or adults

 

I also have a feeling that this is just for winterfest

I agree with not applying this to random strangers.  However, I have often been in line and witnessed a group of 4 kids/teenagers who are clearly together, but then each take an individual glider on the ride.  When that happens, capacity is absolutely crushed.

That ride has such bad capacity that they should have twin rides.   The child proof belts don’t help the capacity either!

There's an actual weight limit posted at the gliders. Unless they just plan to turn adults away, I don't know how they plan to enforce this.

I would support that.....as long as we get our Eagles back from Carowinds and they put it back in Coney Mall.

The weight limit is 350 lbs I believe.
