I need to find a company that can develop a waiting room for our website. It must be able to hold the users before creating the API calls. Any one have any experience with waiting rooms and what was your solution.

How about posting some instructions to read, add a timer for let's say 10 seconds, on zero the OK button to proceed to the api calls is enabled.

So all you need is some javascript code.

So why does it take so long for the website to respond to users requests, what is the deal?

The program that handles the API calls can only handle 200 concurrent connections. I need to limit those calls to 150 and place the other thousands of people in a waiting room till the connections are released

Same idea, you dont have to redirect them to an error page, you can redirect them to a waiting page as the number of current connections exceeded.

this watting room is a active page for each individual request and is a separate thread.

The waiting idea is quite simple, the page is load as user has been redirected (so you have an interface: Server is busy ...), as soon as the page is load, a javascript function will force a postback or keep reconnecting from background, untill the connection releases. When user is allow to process, he is redirected to normal page again

Hope this helps
