SFGA, CP, GL fastpass

Thursday, June 22, 2006 4:07 PM
I looked on the CP website and didn't see anything, so I was wondering if CP still had the handstamp "fast pass" system. I know they had it a few years ago, but I haven't heard anything about it recently. I know it was well known then, so i thought they may just leave it off their website.

I read on an un-official site that SFGA had the paper fast pass system. Do they still have it, or did the new management get rid of that?

I didn't think GL had anything, but I was just wondering

CP's version is gone. Which SFGA do you mean? Both have Q-bot electronic "fast pass". GL doesn't have anything and doesn't need anything.

I am a fan of the single rider line on a ride that has one. Usauly the wait is never longer then 5 minutes.

^Unless this is new this year, SFGAm has paper passes only.

^ I mean at parks that actully have single rider lines.

Also do you have to pay for SFMM fastpass type thing?

^All Six Flags fastpasses cost extra.

How much does it cost and is it worth the cost?

At SFMM I can almost get on every ride once before the park closes. Also I always go late December or early June.

I was talking about great america. The lo-que website said that they don't have the eloctronic Q-bot

In that case Bruno, you can buy a card which allows you to use it 5 times to cut in line.

What do you think is the best B&M. I like the Tenesee Tornado at dollywood.

I remember that thread. It lasted for a couple hours before it got shut down because every body bashed on fatmanoncounch.

Yeah, the Great America system is a paper ticket that allows true line cutting. X number of dollars for X number of line cuts on rides that accept it. I think it was $15 for 5 rides.

Vastly different approach when compared to the electronic virtual queue systems some SF parks use.

Is it really worth it for Great America? That is $3 per ride which is about what you pay at a local fair or carnival (in Ohio anyway). I have experience with crowds at CP, GL, and KI. Which of those does SFGam match the best? High, low, or somewhere in-between. As you may or may not know, I am planning to go there next month. Besides the big debate on if the fastpass is a good idea, is it worth it at this particular park?

^It depends on what day you go, if the park is packed (ie they use the unpaved lots) its worth its weight in gold.

I concur.

Entirely worth it on crowded days assuming your skin is thick enough to ignore the dirty looks of the people you just slipped into line in front of. ;)

Alright, this will be the last Wed in July. And where do I go for this gold?
Thursday, June 22, 2006 10:28 PM
I thought it was $15 for 4 rides? Those dirty looks aren't any different than the ones you get using Flashpass(or Q Bot, whatever they're calling it now). I like the $15 dollar thing more. If you're at a larger park that can cut your wait time down a bit allowing you to get on everything and not feel so rushed. I know we spent $45 bucks using it on Raging Bull alone a few years back. ;)

^You get at Midway America (conviently located on the way to the SW Territory and Raging Bull/Viper) Weds are usually the worst weekday to go because its AAA discount day so it would probably be worth the money. There will be a line at opening to get them, you wont be able to miss it.

Meh, I'm at a park over 1,000 miles from home, I'm never gonna see THESE people again anyway... :)

edit: If it's a park closer to home, I've probably ridden the ride enough so that: 1) I really don't need extra rides, and 2) I don't go on crowded days.

Of course, for me that means going to the parks in November and February...*and* we have single-rider lines...LOL!

CP does have a fastpass. It is known as the VIP experience. For a low low price of $350 per person. :)
