    I love this content! Do you track the standard delta between the expected wait time you predict on a ride with the actual wait time? How accurate are your predictions? I always get nervous getting into a line when there is a big spread between the posted and expected. Knowing how accurate your predictions were for a given ride would both be interesting and useful.
