help for wheelchair user at busch gardens

if anyone can help following questions please reply as I have struggled to find out this info.

1.Does a wheelchair user a Busch gardens need to get anything from guest services in order to use the chair in the lines.

2. Is there any piont in purchasing the express passes while using a wheelchair. I made the mistake of doing this at another theme park only to find that the express lines could not take wheelchairs- money down the drain!

3. Is there a wheelchair version of the skychairs. or do you you have to go al the way round to the start to get the chair back. If you have to go all the way round do you also need to get off at the back stop and queue again (if so is there a chair there to use)

Thanks for any help

It's been a few years and my memory is fading...but I'll ask DD tomorrow and see what she remembers.

But as I recall, I don't think we needed anything special to use DD's manual chair in lines. Obviously a lot (all?) of the thrill rides require transferring of course. There were some older coasters where DD could not physically get into the line (tight queue, stairs) and so on those they would just have her wait the approx line time and then load her through a separate entrance.

We did NOT use the Express Pass. I had thought about it but even though we were there during spring break we went on a weekday and so the lines actually weren't bad. It was NOTHING like Disney.

Anyway, I'll try to report back tomorrow as well!
