Another theme park makes disabled guests wait in line
Following in the footsteps of last month’s “An almost-perfect trip to Disneyland”, now Valleyfair in Minnesota is making news by changing their policy to make guests with disabilities wait in long lines for rides. The park used to let disabled guests skip the lines, but this policy was being abused. I just had a friend tell me a couple weeks ago how her boyfriend would always put on a fake cast, and rent a wheel-chair whenever he went to a theme park, just so he could skip the lines. So it’s easy to imagine how badly out of control this policy was getting, and what drove Valleyfair to this decision.
Now imagine Valleyfair with QLess, where, nobody has to wait in line, and everyone is treated equally. From the article:
“At the end of the day, what we all want to strive for is being treated like everybody else. So we will all have to gain patience.”
QLess will let all guests, disabled or not, stop standing in line, be treated equally, and spend their time at the park doing whatever they like.
