I'll be doing a KD/BGW weekend trip in April/ early May. We bought our KD tickets with Fastlane back in the fall cause they were really cheap, so not worried about lines at KD. Both parks are ~10am-10pm on Saturday and then ~10am-8pm on Sunday. Right now I'm thinking Saturday BGW then Sunday KD. Does anyone have some insights for crowds around this time of year?

I don't know if this has been posted on here yet, but BGW has jumped on the bandwagon of offering a season long fast pass. They call it the Ultimate Thrills Quick Queue. However, it is by far the most expensive in the industry at $555, and it does not even include Hallowscream or Christmas Town. I honestly wonder how many of these they sell. You would have to use it about ten times to be more economical than just buying single day Quick Queue unlimited passes, and I honestly cannot see someone needing one that many times. Maybe if you can only come to the park during weekends and you come nearly every weekend in the summer this makes sense? However, I just read the fine print and it says pass members get a special rate by logging into the pass member website. So maybe the $555 is only the price if you have the fun card and it is a bit cheaper if you have the annual pass?
^Full price is $799, but right now on their website they are selling them for $499. Like with the season passes, I doubt they ever actually get to full price, there is always one sale or another. Plus Magic Mountain has a much longer operating season and theirs is good for FF and HITP.
^ Yeah, comparing full price of one to the sale price of another isn't exactly a fair comparison. But I don't think you're really trying to make a fair comparison here. Clearly you just want to be right, so sure. You're right. Busch Gardens has by far the most expensive pass that's 10% more than another park's sale price.
