Mobile Can someone please explain bags in lockers on thrill rides

Sorry if its a basic question but its many years since Ive been to universal and I cant get my head around how this works... do you put all bags in before starting to queue, or part way through? How does that work with some people picking up and some dropping off?
TIA

Usually you put your things in the locker before you join the main queue.


Sometimes when the ride first opens and the queue is massively long, you'll join a long queue outside the ride entrance first and then put your stuff in a locker once you get near the lockers and then continue to queue. As mentioned by Rachhh in her report of her massive 13.5 hour wait for Hagrid's Motorbike coaster (here) she started queuing at about 8:30am but didn't put her stuff in the lockers until she eventually got to Hogsmeade at about 4pm.

In this case, I'm not sure how they deal with people picking up and dropping off to stop people joining the queue in the middle instead of at the end.

Thanks so much for your response... and yes- I was wondering how they stop people rejoining the queue for the ride etc! 13.5 hours is an impressive wait by anyones standards... 😳

Thanks for the reply, so guessing you can end up in blazing sun queuing without a cap / water etc. I think I might be glad of express passes!

The Hagrid lockers are either side of the actual ride entrance, one lot on the right, next to the static Hogwarts Express and the others in a building to the left.

Theres not really anywhere that you will end up in the blazing sun especially if you do have express pass.

Hulk and Rip ride and Hagrids (for now) are the only ones where you must use a locker.

Lots of other rides are no loose items so generally no bags but a bum bag with a 3 pronged clip is generally accepted on all rides other than the 3 above.
