I’ve been paying attention to the wait times at Universal last week and this week. Now, I know crowds are larger than normal right now due to spring breaks and such…but the wait times are absolutely INSANE right now. Like, just now, 140 minute wait for Shrek 4D. (It isn’t even worth a 20 minute wait!) Virtual queues for several rides are completely full for rest of the day. The shortest waits are for MIB (45 minutes) and then FatF (60 minutes).
This makes me think that Universal is over-selling. They shouldn’t even allow that many people into the parks since clearly they can’t handle the capacity.
Now, I’m expecting when we go in May, lines will be back to more normal waits (but definitely longer than what we experienced in August). Still, it doesn’t seem right that a park would charge the prices they are charging, and yet have capacities that lead to waiting 1-2(+) hour waits for just about everything!
