If there's very few long lines, then there's no reason to buy the fast lane pass. Which means the park won't be selling many fast lane passes. Why would you pay 55$ so you don't have to stand in a 20 minute line at most.

A good marketing program that makes you believe either:
1) There will be lines
2) Your experience will be better with FLP.

Perception, not reality, is key.

BTW, Perhaps Disney posts wait times to sell FLPs. If a park isn't selling many FLPs because lines are nonexistant, I bet a park is less enthusiastic to set up a system to post wait times.

If I ran a theme park, on a slow day I would just take a train or two off of each coaster so the lines would get long. How else am I going to sell front-of-the-line access when the park isn't busy? Making as much money as possible is WAY more important than giving paying guests a good experience. If they want a good experience, it's going to cost them extra.

Uh-oh. That reeks of the old Dexter days.

There's a lot wrong with that statement (even accounting for the sarcasm).

Did I mention I buy the on-ride photo of everyone on my train, everytime I ride a coaster. Not just every row of seats... Every person.

I about anticipation. I remember my first ride on Dragster. It wouldn't be fun if I would of just walked up to the station and got on. It's all about standing in the queue line, watching launch over launch. Watching some roll back or barely get over. Having it break down twice in like. It all builds up the anticipation. I like somewhat long waits.

Maybe for the first time I ride a coaster...maybe. (Though usually not for me.) After that, I'd rather be on board as quickly as possible as many times as possible.

So you want to run a Six Flags between the late 90's and earl 00's?
