About Queue Times

I started Queue Times in the summer of 2014 after a frustrating trip to a theme park where I spent the entire day waiting in lines. Since starting the site with only one park, I have expanded it to numerous theme parks all across the world.

Where does the data come from?

The queue times you see are the same as published officially by the park themselves. If you don't believe me, download the official park app for the theme park you are interested in and you will see they match exactly!

How do you predict future crowd levels?

The site uses machine learning (specifically Gradient boosting regressors) to come up with crowd calendars. The model currently includes time of the year, park opening times and weather. The predictions are therefore based on past data, so accuracy tends to improve the longer a park has been on the site for.

Can I add your data to my site?

You're more than welcome to link to the site, but I'd prefer if you didn't embed the site within your page.
