Hey guys and gals, it's been awhile since I posted, however I have a few questions about the Joker's lines.
Now, I'm going to the park for my first 2017 visit on July 2nd, Sunday and I would like to know how long does the lines for the Joker get during the day? How long have you seen them? Three hours, four? If it says three, does it end up being really three or less then the posted time?

^ I don't think you'll wait more than 1 hour, maybe 90 minutes max. My daughter and I went on 6/21 (WED) and we waited only 35-40 minutes in the normal line.

Was at the park the last two Thursdays and the longest wait was 1/2 hour. Mid summer on the weekend I could see over and hour, definitely not 2. They seems to keep the line moving well.

Now for my review...Rode it 5 times, somehow we got green every time. Not once did we get a similar ride. Never experienced a ride that was so varied each time. The most extreme ride was facing backwards out of the station, this was the first time I've been a little scared on a ride in a long long time! I had no idea where I was on the track the whole time, can't remember how many flips, at least 3. Loved it! One of my kids was a little timid getting in line again after that :D Definitely a great addition to the park

The line moves surprisingly quick. I was able to get to the front of it in maybe 35 minutes last week, though right as I was about to board there was a problem with the exit gate so there was a 20 minute delay, but yeah. I've never seen it use both the circus tent and shadeless switchbacks, even on Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend (Day the ride opened)

Has anyone seen the TV"s working that are in the queue? I don't remember them ever being on.

Yes, the Joker cams. I think I might have seen them running only 1 time out of my 7 total rides.
