Great: fast passes + Cedar Fair = me more likely to go to a CF park. I knew as soon as Kinzel went, out flash the Fast Passes. Now if only the Knott's rumour comes true.

CF was responsible for a lot of park upgrades the last few years and not just ride renovations with new paint and fire effects. Also, despite the hate, Kinzel has always shown a great passion for the amusement industry and I am grateful for all he is done.

^Don't get me wrong I think Kinzel has done plenty of good things, but he was always resistant to fast passes.

I wonder if it going to be similar to the "Hate to Wait" pass that they were experimenting with at Knott's during the off season. I think that was only $40 but I could be wrong.

Donkeys are my way of life!

I got a little more information about the Fast Pass system that will be announced tomorrow for Kings Island. Seems that they will be $50 per person.


Hopefully this is a proof of concept that will make its way around the Cedar Faire properties. Hello, Cedar Point?

Fabulously FIERCE!

When I was younger, and I'm sure it was on this forum somewhere years ago, I used to express my dislike for FastPasses, Qbots, or whatever they were called at the time they started using them, and I'm sure I called them unfair at some point. I would like to retract my statement. (Where ever the heck it is on this board, I tried to find it. LOL)

Now, I'm an old fat lazy drunk with a couple extra bucks. When I go on vacation, I want it all, and I'm willing to spend the extra money for better treatment so that I can remain fat, lazy and drunk. (Isn't that what going on vacation is about???) It's like when I go to the club, I buy a bottle of Skyy, they give me a free private party booth and sometimes a bartender. Or I pay almost double what everyone else in the place is paying for a hotel room because I want a better view and concierge service.

$50 for no waiting?!?!? Where do I sign up! Let's get it right this time Cedar Fair!!!!

So was anything announced?

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

^At the very least, their main banner on the homepage has a link to information on the new "Fast Lane" passes:

http://tickets.visitkingsisland.com/shop/shopping_corporate_partners_list.cfm

Fast Lane appears to be available for select hours of the day (12.00-7.00), although the number of uses is unlimited, and for 5 coasters and 5 other rides:
Diamondback, Beast, Flight of Fear, Firehawk, Back Lot Stunt Coaster
Drop Tower, Delerium, Windseeker, Boo Blasters, Log Flume

No Invertigo? That one needs it more than Diamondback.
