Fast Pass at SFMM

Monday, July 8, 2002 4:49 PM
I have yet to use this system. How do you do it? Where do you find it? Do you buy it at the time of ticket purchase? Questions, questions, questions. Please give me answers!!!! In depth answers or e-mail would be swell!

Well, if fastpass existed somewhere OTHER than DISNEY parks I'm sure someone would be more than willing to help you out.

You simply purchase Fast Lane passes in groups of 4 tickets for $15 and follow the signs at each ride to the Fast Lane entrance. You then enter the line where it breaks up to the different rows.

Matthew, thank you for the simple answers.

Michael, thanks for proving that you are, indeed, quite superior to me. If it weren't for your unsurpassed knowledge, I might not ever have known such an obvious thing. It's a good thing that you came along and saved me from myself. Heck, perhaps we can be best friends now!

Since it's obvious that I didn't know the exact f****** name of the tickets, perhaps you can erase or edit your arrogant self-serving words. Then again............

All I will say about Fastline at SFMM is, that if you plan to visit the park on a weekday and want to buy some Fastlane tickets, then DONT DO IT.

WHY - Well, I visited the park with the ECC on Monday 3rd June and when we entered the park, some of us enquired about the Queue times for the Fastlane rides, and we were told Viper was 1hr, ArrowHead Splashdown 1hr, Riddler 2hrs, Goliath 3hrs, and Batman 1hr, but actually all of these rides had just 30 min queues max or walk ons so SFMM actually LIED to us and the general public just to sell the tickets. I was wise not to buy any fastlane tickets because I refused to believe them, but sadly some members were conned by the comments and decided to buy some anyway.

I dont think its right when a park actually LIES about Queue times to sell some Fastlane tickets, so let this be a warning to anyone. Dont get conned by SFMM when they tell you Rides like Riddler and Batman have 1-2hr queues on a weekday.

If you really want to buy some anyway, The best rides to use them on is definatly Riddler or Goliath.

SFOG, SFKK, SFMM, probably others. They may not go by the same name, but the system is in place at these parks. Maybe you ought to check the facts before responding like that.

Nice comments. Thanks for the info everyone. I assumed that SFMM might want to sell some extra tix, but I haven't attended the park in summer in, well......forever. So, I wasn't so sure. Still, I will probably take your advice on this one. I wonder what the queues are like at KBF? Anyone?

Very cool.....very, very cool.

Nasai:

Just as an example, just last Saturday, after the SFMM Platinum Season Passholder's ERT session, the park filled up rapidly (partly because the front gates were opened 30 minutes early) and by early afternoon, the queues for the more popular coasters were quite long. Goliath, which was only running two trains, was a 2-3 hour wait; Riddler's, at least a 2 hour wait (3 trains cycling), and Batman, maybe 2 hours. Deja Vu - forget about it. By 10:30 a.m., after we had our only ERT session ride, the line was already a 2 hour wait, and I'm sure it got even longer. The shorter lines: Psyclone, Colossus, Gold Rusher and Revolution. On a Saturday or Sunday during the summer, buy at least one set of Fast Lane passes (but do it right at opening because even that line gets long - you buy them just behind Guest Relations in the entrance plaza) and use them for Goliath and Riddler's (can't use them on Deja Vu or Batman). The Fast Lane will take you right to the loading platform where you choose the row you want to ride in. Note: front rows for both are always longer waits.

For Knott's, the best days during the summer are probably Monday or Tuesday, but there are a lot of youth summer camps that take day trips to Knott's during the week. I myself prefer to go on a Sunday, and even then expect a 2 hour plus wait for GhostRider and at least an hour for Xcelerator, and even longer if you want the front car.

Now there you go. That's what I wanted to know. I won't be going to any park, ever, on a weekend. I did that the last time on Valentines Day of 1999 at SFMM. Oh my Lord, it was bad. So........... I know the crowds will be a little bit lighter. I guess it will have to do. I will be hitting Knotts on a weekday, heck I might even go late, and pay that lesser fee. Again, thanks!

Just remember, tho', even summer weekdays at SFMM have tons of kids on youth summer camp field trips, but they usually leave around 5 or 6 p.m. Good luck!!

Respectfully (please note that word) I do have my facts straight. "Fastpass" is a TM owned by Disney, therefore there is no Fastpass at any park other than a Disney park. There are dozens of virtual queueing programs, but none can be Fastpass without beign sued. :)

Are these passes available to anyone, or are they only available for purchase by SF season passholders?

Also, I'm seeing references in this thread (and in another one) about the lines at SFMM. For those of you with experience on this matter, are the crowds likey to diminish by the third week in August (August 19, for example)? I wouldn't expect there to be as many school field trips by then.

Thanks.

As far as I know, anyone who buys a ticket for the park is able to use the system. Correct?

If X has re-opened by the time you go, easy solution. Buy the fastlane tickets and use them all for X. Or perhaps split them between X and Goliath. No one gets conned and there you go.

X and Deja Vu are the only coasters in the park with 2 hours plus waits anyway.
