Everyone is always eager to skip long lines for their favorite roller coasters.

Now, California theme parks have fallen victim to social distancing mandates in the COVID-19 age. That would mean saying goodbye to single rider lines.

California theme parks should consider eliminating single rider lines for popular roller coasters, rides and attractions, according to the state guidelines. Single rider lines are designed to help fill in every open seat, which falls inconsistent with social distancing rules. Single rider lines allow solo theme park visitors to wait in shorter lines and fill in empty seats on rides.

As for Six Flags Magic Mountain, when they reopen on April 1st, single rider lines will not be available. Parks such as Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and other California theme parks have not yet announced if they will still have single rider lines.

What do you think should happen?
