Wait Watchers (Free)
If you’ve ever been to a theme park, you’ve probably had the experience of walking all the way across the park to ride something, only to find out that the wait time for the ride is ridiculously long. If only there was a way to have known that beforehand. Well, now there is.

It’s not about weight loss. It’s about waiting less.
With the Wait Watchers™ series of app’s for the IPhone, you’ll see the wait times for various attractions (as posted by other Wait Watchers™ app users) right at start up, without any further navigation. Each app is designed to be both easy to “consume” so you can find the wait time to any ride in the park quickly and easy to “contribute” so you can post a wait time update for others to see.
