Proposal: Red Light Green Light

Passes 6-1 after more than 48 hours. -Bucky

Add a rule to the ruleset. Call it “Traffic Light” and give it the following text:

There is a Traffic Light whose color may be Green or Red and defaults to Green. Its color is tracked at the top of the Information Center.

If the Proprietor is allowed to Advance the Queues, the Proprietor may turn the Traffic Light Red to indicate his intent to do so. If the Traffic Light has been Red for the last four hours, any Group may change it to Green; or, the Proprietor may change it to Green at any time.

If the Traffic Light is Red, no actions defined as Traffic Actions may be taken. Any action that changes a Visitor’s presence at an Attraction but isn’t part of Advancing the Queues is a Traffic Action unless otherwise specified.

Add the following step to the end of the “Advancing the Queues” action in the rule “Turns”:

* Change the color of the Traffic Light to Green.

In the rule “Rushing Queues”, remove “if they have not previously Rushed any Queue during the current Turn”.

Add the following sentences to the end of the rule “Rushing Queues”:

Rushing a Queue is a Traffic Action. Visitors who have Rushed a Queue during the current Turn may take no further Traffic Actions.

In the rule “Attractions and Queues”, change

A Visitor may Walk to any non-Gated Attraction at any time, putting themselves at the bottom of that Attraction’s List.


A Visitor may Walk to any non-Gated Attraction, putting themselves at the bottom of that Attraction’s List. Walking is a Traffic Action.

In the rule “Maze”, change

cannot Walk or Rush any Queue for the rest of the Turn


cannot take any Traffic Actions for the rest of the Turn


Using the software strategy of resource locking to address concerns about mid-Advancing movement.

Thanks, Bucky! You get me. I love a good resource lock. Give me a mutex or critical section any day.
