    Default When did the queuing start???

    When I went to Butlin's as a kid (late 70s to early 90s) there was never a queue for the theatres apart from a handful of people who would turn up 10 minutes before.
    When I returned as an adult with my own family in 2000 there wasn't any queues and there was no problems getting a seat in centre stage.

    Now I remember centre stage got busy over the next 5 years to the point it became standing room only, but when did people queuing for hours before the doors opened?

    It seems to me there is a generation of Butlin's holiday makers that have become preconditioned to queue. However, this is surely preventing growth as a lot of new visitors will be put off by having too queue for hours to get a seat, especially when summer breaks are so expensive.
