Having Fun in an Orderly Fashion
Everybody knows the world queueing experts are the Brits. With patience and politeness they stand around for 96 hours a year, occasionally chatting up a fellow line member.
Cross the Atlantic and find a place with plenty of long lines--Disneyland--and let's see how the Americans tackle the queueing dilemma. Not content with just shuffling along, someone actually wrote a book on how to survive in a Disneyland queue. Claiming to be for the young and "young at heart" (eek, do we really belong to this category?), it features activities and puzzles related to the various attractions you'll be standing in line at. The website's sample on Buzz Lightyear all looked a bit intellectual to us--for example, we should unscramble SERTBAEIT to form a word you can see near the queue--but the theory, at least, is good.
But how about combining some of the naked jaunts at Disneyland Hong Kong with the queueing activities: Then us "young at heart" will really be catered for. And the queue can just come with blindfolds for the truly young.
