    A great list to make the waiting in line time seemingly pass by quicker. I didn’t know this “Take this time waiting to have some snacks or order a meal using Mobile Food and Beverage ordering app.” that is fantastic.

  2. JoKing says:

    I enjoy getting to know new people. You’d be amazed at the different people you meet and from all over the world. Keep track of all the countries of the people you meet.

    Really good ideas, another one is just people watching.

  4. Calvin says:

    Really thoughtful ideas, definitely make use of that time when waiting in the lines.. some lines can be especially long..

  5. Debbie White-Beattie says:

    If there’s a really big line I’d want some food, if it’s a ride that won’t get sick. The thing that will pass the time the most I suspect would be everyone’s obsession, CELL PHONES!

  6. Kristi says:

    These are great ideas! It’s so much better for everyone’s mood to make the best of it!
