Where A Cellphone Can Take Your Place in Line

Lake Compounce is the first American park to try new cellphone text messaging technology for people who hate to stand in line.
The nation's oldest amusement park is teaming up with Lo-Q, a British company, to offer Text2Ride, which will, for a fee, allow your cellphone to virtually stand in line for you.
I wrote about this for Tuesday's edition of The Bristol Press ( It seems like it might be worth it if you're especially fond of a particular ride and are there on a busy day.
The cost is going to be about $1 extra for each time your phone takes your place in line.
For some people, it's sure to be worth it. For others? Maybe not so much.
