At Fall Affair last year, everyone who wanted to pretty much sat on the Voyage train. Until the lightning got too close, anyway.
Even at Coastermania, I was able to a heck of a lot laps on every coaster not named Maverick. Coastermania 08 I managed a 15 lap marathon on Magnum without getting off.
I have a question to ask of all that have expressed their opinion that the Quick Queue is "not fair" or "not right".
WOULD YOU LIKE SOME CHEESE TO GO WITH YOUR WHINE?
After you grow up and become a contributing member of society you will learn that, actually, it's 100% fair. Notice that I wrote "100%" and not 99% or even 99.9%. IT'S 100% FAIR. Busch owns the park and they have the right to do anything they please, which includes charging any amount they want for any service they like. You, on the other hand, have the right to go or not go, and take your money elsewhere. This is the absolute epitome of freedom, my friends. In contrast, this is the opposite of the government setting rules and regulations on what you can and cannot do, because you do not have the freedom to do otherwise.
Don't go to Busch Gardens and they don't get your money. If enough people don't go then they can go out of business. Don't do what the government tells you, or do what they tell you not to do, and you will be fined or go to jail. Are you starting to catch on now?
Best of all, if you really don't like the way Busch Gardens operates then open your own theme park and put them out of business. You might not have the brains or resources, but you certainly have the freedom to do that, right?
Congratulations! You may soon hold the ultimate record for the shortest membership on CoasterBuzz. Whereas many people here likely agree there is nothing wrong with the front of line pass system, you should try not to be such a douchebag when presenting your ideas. You just joined this site minutes ago, yet your first post brings to life a 3 1/2 year old zombie thread in which you present yourself as a complete A-hole. Please give our regards to Cropsey and SheiKraFiend.Last edited by sws, Saturday, June 22, 2013 9:12 PM
I have been at Michigan's Adventure 2 times this month, and even though the park was fairy quiet, and there were little or no lines, I still saw a good amount of people using fast lane there. With wait times as little as 5 minutes, they were still getting front of the line access, which is a big waste of money, as far as I am concerned.
So, to think that people will only use theses passes when it's busy, would not be 100 percent accurate. They obviously use them because they can. Just as with the people in the preferred parking lot, when there is abundant parking just a short walk from the park gate. I actually parked 3 pots over from the edge of the preferred lot, when I was at MA on Thursday, and there were several cars parked in the preferred lot.
My question would be, how they route the FOL folks to the rides?, and where do they seat them when they arrive? I did not notice any fast lane folks getting to chose where they sat at MA. An employee directed them where to sit, which was any available open seat, where there was no wait anyways. I did notice though, that those people with fast lane were not asked to leave the station if they wanted a re-ride. While everyone else had to leave the station and get back in line.
As for LNM, I wonder if this could be the same reason why Gate keeper and Top Thrill Dragster, are not included in the regular fast lane program at Cedar Point, so they can sell people up to the more expensive pass. I won't be getting either, so It doesn't matter to me. Just a thought.
I didn't do it! I swear!!
So how quiet are those fairies? I've neved heard them used to describe crowds at a theme parks.

I take it that was after a batch of your special brownies....
Wow Dukeofsweetwater, your post kind of pissed me off.
Did you know that your beloved government of freedom is now making it their mission to take away food stamps from people, simply because they choose to buy soft drinks, and lobster? Like maybe they are too free to buy what they want, so lets take away food from their children, unless they buy what we feel should be their food stamp diet?
And certain senators wanting to take unemployment and social security away from people who have worked all of their lives, just to be dumped by a corporate society who no longer cares about them. While they give themselves free health care and pensions for life after just serving one term in office?
So much freedom to do what we want. Nobody gets true freedom in this country. The government sets the rules, and if you don't agree with what they say, they will go ahead and do whatever they want anyways. Just don't pay your taxes for a few years, using your so called freedom, and see how far that gets you. Maybe don't insure your car, or renew your driverse liscence, because you are so free to do whatever you want. See how far that gets you.
call the president an MF, in front of his face. See how far that gets you.
I didn't do it! I swear!!
Timber-rider, unfortuately (maybe fortunately) the Duke probably exited in fashion that I hope for the Duke University team to exit the ncaa tourney: early and with shame.
The Dukes post pissed me off for other reasons. While I am totally against parks disallowing people to cut unless they pay a fee, I respect the other opinion. I love to learn why people think what they do. Dukebag of Ballsweat's post showed blatant disrespect to those who do not hold his opinion, and I really didn't learn anything from it at all.
It kind of reminded me of a CoasteaPlaya post. No one enjoys being talked down to.
