As a Annual pass holder I decided to make the rounds of the parks yesterday. I got to IOA at 12pm and got the biggest shock of my life. All the rides we packed to the hilt! 80 to 90 minute waits on HULK, DD, Spiderman was 2 hours. Everything! So I thought that I could get a Express Pass. Boy was I wrong! All the EP's were no longer printing out passes. They had already been taken. I went and asked an employee and his reponse was that they were gone about 11:30 am. It seems the express passes aren't working too well he said. They had over 45 groups in the park at one time and they all ate up the passes. I think they need to change the way they give out the passes. They might want to do it the way WDW does it. I think it woould be much more effective. One teen that was there was bragging how he went from pass machine to machine getting passes. He said he loved to see all the other adults mad when they couldn't get the time they wanted anymore. What was even worse is that these groups that were there also have passes to USO and went over there as well and got passes. After I left IOA I went there. It was dead. MIB was about 20 minute wait. And a lot of the rides had no waiting time. But if you wanted to get a Express pass, you were out of luck. I wanted one just so I could go eat and then ride MIB but nope, No express! Something has to be done to fix the problem. Hopefully next week won't be so bad!
