Hmm still has a lot of work to be done but it's good thing they saved time by using King Chaos' old queue.

The park map in the app still shows a picture of King Chaos and no Hangover. No mention of the ride in the descriptions either. I wonder when they will update this. My app has the most recent update too.

They usually update somewhere between opening day and an opening of a new ride so maybe it will update by then.

Saw a picture of the new map somewhere that has the hangover. You're not missing much.

^I guess they added 100 feet of height to the Hangover without us knowing, because it's as tall as Giant Drop now! :P

Well it's because Six Flags doesn't know how to make the size of the rides in the maps right :lol: . Same with Goliath it looks like it's wooden giga.

I actually like that they made the new ride that big, and I will tell you the reason. Most people want to know where the new ride is. If you make the new ride quite big on the map, they will more easily find that new ride. So, if that is the reason, I think it's a great idea. They should do that every year - for whatever new ride they get.
Imagine going to a movie theater, and they start allowing people in at 12pm to a movie that started at 12pm with maybe a 100 people in line. So many FURIOUS people! Now, imagine going to an amusement park (Great America) where there are 600 people in line for that 12pm movie. I'm NOT saying to ride anything BEFORE 12pm though.

Love how it's this big, it makes this a unique carnival ride :lol: . As for what kind of queue their doing they might be using the same queue as King Chaos but just expanding it a little. I still feel like it's going to be a bit small especially being a new ride, but hey there might not be many people going in that direction.

Since the novelty of Joker has worn off, maybe they can use the excess/overflow portion of Joker for the Hangover queue?!

Joker rarely had a line longer than the canopy during my visits, and if it did it would die of by 5 or 6PM. :lol:

I think MGHO has plenty of queue space.

Thanks for the update RC. Hmm I wonder what finishing touches mean. Maybe the queue but hopefully it's actually themeing.

Im assuming that the ramp is the exit, but it's right by the parade route track. Once the Mardi Gras parade starts will parade floats block the exit when it is occurring?

It doesn't look as close as the exit for Chaos.

Yeah, plus the parade track goes around Big Easy Balloons. It'll be fine.

^ If Six Flags knew that the ramp would be blocking the parade they wouldn't have done it.

Any of you planning to go to the preview days because I'm going :D .

Nevermind what I said earlier. Now looking at it from a different angle, it's not close at all. I would love to go on the t-shirt day, but I dont think I can :(
