Ride wait time App.
« on: July 05, 2018, 04:24:51 PM »
Last weekend I was having trouble with the App in general. It never updated and actually said several attractions were down for the season. The rest were waiting on updates. I updated it and killed it several times but still no luck.
Is the App. even functional ?  I am using the latest version of IOS.  As it stands the App is worthless unless I am missing something.

Thoughts, Ideas ?

Yeah noticed that too and I am on the Android version, I miss the old app, it was much better refined in terms of functionality for that. I feel like this one is a bit of a downgrade.

Every time I check the app on my iPhone or iPad it seems to work fine, but who knows if the ride times I see are actually accurate.

I've noticed that the wait times on it are horribly inaccurate or often times not available.  I don't even both with that anymore except to see if a ride is open or closed.  That's about as accurate as it gets.

Even showtimes aren't necessarily accurate either.  last time I was there the app didn't have the saloon show listed at all, under any name.  I thought at first they didn't have it that day- until we walked by and people were lining up to get in to the show.
This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

I was looking at the app the other day from the house just to see how busy the rides were during the holiday weekend.  It said many rides had 0 minute wait which I know there could be no way they had not wait on a holiday weekend.
