Located at Thorpe Park was once Reserve N' Ride, a virtual queueing system. Although the park had many trials of it through the 2014 theme park season, it didn't stay and was greatly hated by many park guests whos queue times were greatly increased due to the system.
Quote from the Thorpe Park Website in 2014:
Come to THORPE PARK Resort on select dates in 2014 to trial our new Reserve N’ Ride virtual queuing system. It’s a new FREE system for guests wishing to ride our five thrilling rollercoasters without needing to stand in a queue. It’s easy to use and saves you time to enjoy more of our Resort. Use your spare time to relax with lunch in Bar 360, chill on the beach or have some retail therapy in our stores.
