WATCH Aerial Footage Show Insanely Long Lines at Yellowstone Park
Can you believe that I have never been to a giant theme park before? You know, places like Six Flags, Universal Studios, or even Disneyland? I can only imagine what it would be like. Judging by what I have heard from people, they seem like miserable places to be. Especially when they are busy. There is nothing I love more than standing in line, in order to get in another line, so you can get a ticket for another line. Add sweltering heat, and I'm thinking I'll stick to my current plan of just NOT going.
Now, imagine the same scenario, but this time with wild animals and geysers instead of rollercoasters and a giant mouse. That is the current scene in Yellowstone National Park. Extreme flooding forced the entire park to close, but it appears that entrances on the south end of the park are beginning to re-open for tourist travel. At the height of the tourist season at Yellowstone National Park, it is clear there are lots of people eager to get into the park.

The park has a system they are currently using to minimize the flow of traffic making its way into the park. Letting everyone in at one time could cause more problems than the park is already dealing with. Currently, the park is letting vehicles in based on their license plate numbers. Plates with odd numbers on their plates get in on odd days. Plates with even numbers get in on even days. Customized plates are allowed in on odd days and motorcycles are allowed in on even days.
