I think there is a "bail-out" option right before you get on.

Unless your camera is small AND you will have cargo shorts/pants with zipping pockets, you won't want to take that camera into line if you might ride. You cannot carry anything with you in your hands, nor can you have anything but the tiniest waistpack.

So go through the line but don't ride, and take pictures, then when you think you might ride, take nothing with you. Or vice versa.

You just go thru the whole queue, then just walk on past the vehicle instead of boarding. You'll see the exit gate. Some really good photo spots along the way

DD & I had no intention of riding but walked the very long queue to take pictures. We just told the cm's at the entry point what we were doing. We walked right past the point where you get on the ride and right out the exit.
There are a lot of great HP details in the queue.
