This article is biased in its wording used to describe Universal's Child Swap. Universal has programs for children that don't meet the ride requirement such as height certificates and sometimes the themed queues are just as entertaining for children that can't meet the height as the ride would be. It feels this way in Transformers in my opinion. Theming always makes things better

Having worked at mummy; we sent everyone through the que.

That being said since you have 'worked' there and are not currently working there policies have changed. Greeter now hands a pass to the family and they are sent on their way through the que and person A holds onto it while person B rides and once person B returns person A takes the pass to the attendant and then rides. For this reason there really isn't much reason to split parties up anymore.

1. Universal also has a riders switch pass. You'll be given the pass at greeter and be directed through the que and the non-first rider holds on to the pass in childswap and then gives the pass to the grouper attendant when their party rejoins so they can ride.

Your entire party has to remain together and I do believe that you'll have to use it right then and there once you get up to the ride platform.

We were there is September and used pur fastpass + and rider swap. It was not useless. We were able to get through the lines faster and we had 6 initial fastpasses between my husband and myself on the rides my small child could not ride. It was wonderdul and I think we were able to utilize our time better.

Having worked at Universal I can tell you that this is not completely accurate. For example, if you wanted to ride the Incredible Hulk but have a child that is too small that child would not be allowed to enter the ride queue. Instead half of your party would be sent with the child to these waiting areas you described where you could sit and enjoy the movie currently playing or even just enjoy the air conditioning. When the other half of your party gets to the front of line and rides, they would then come meet you in the waiting area and you would switch off.
