So for only $1,000, a family of four can go to the fronts of the lines for all of the rides that are not operational that day. :) All sarcasm aside, I understand that Six Flags is trying to generate revenue and this is another attempt. I doubt there will be many takers, but there may be some.
The one good thing about this is that is won't make that much difference. Very few visitors will use this option. Most of the people with money to burn will just settle for a Gold Q-Bot.
Some parks still stick to the principle that once inside the gate, everyone should be treated the same on the rides (except for height restrictions). Kennywood is such a park and I expect it to stay that way.
Well, don't most of us go into a park doing research on what we'll ride and what we'll avoid already? Isn't that the point of a board like this, For coaster junkies and amusment mavens to come together?
And to think, I decided that I don't want to renew my season pass this year. Oh well, It's only my fault that I'll miss out on groups of people being led right in front of me, as I've already waited over an hour, to ride Nitro. And, part of that hour is due to the legalized linejumpers, sorry, QBotters.
^See that's something I just don't get at all. I have no desire to plan out my park visit moment to moment. Once I'm there, I like to just fly by the seat of my pants and be spontaneous about the whole thing. Sticking to a schedule takes away from the escapism of being at an amusement park.
When I go to my home park Kennywood, my only set plan for rides is that I like to get Exterminator and Phantom's Revenge in right away before the lines build up, I like to get rides in on Phantom and Thunderbolt after dark, I always take at least one ride on Jack Rabbit, Racer, and the Volcano (Enterprise), and I like to ride the Musik Express as the last ride before I leave the park at night. Other than that I am very flexible. One more thing: I always get some Potato Patch fries with cheese topping while at the park.
