We have an upcoming Universal trip, so I’m stalking ahem watching wait times. I’ve noticed that Hagrid’s isn’t on the virtual venues list, and yet the wait times are <40 minutes. Is that correct?
Someone posted on the lines app that last Wednesday they did Hagrid’s three times with a 15 minute wait time for all three rides. I think it slowed down?
The Virtual Queue is only opened up once the standby line reaches a certain point, possibly around a 1 hour wait? This week, the average wait for Hagrid’s was around 40 minutes. The VQ isn’t really necessary when the standby line is not overflowing very far. IOA was at a crowd level 2 all this week, which is good to know when comparing to your travel dates.
IOA was a CL 1 on this day
This is heartening. It seemed a little unbelievable. I’ve mildly watching Hagrid’s for the last 1.5 years. In fact those wait times being low was what inspired out Aug trip. Our late April trip is 4-5 crowd levels. So, even if they have virtual queues, it shouldn’t be too hard to get on several times.
IOA is showing a CL 3 on the days I’ll be there in early March. I’ll report back on how it operated.
