Hi, we are looking forward to bringing our niece and nephew (ages 8 and 10) later this month. Have there been any issues with wait times of folks not being able to get in because of the 50% capacity. I know it may be taking some time for number to ramp up but wanted to avoid disappointment if possible. Thanks!
