Six Flags FastLane parks help! (not an argument)

Friday, September 7, 2001 3:03 PM
I wanted to make this thread so I could get the details on EVERY Six Flags park that currently has a ride reservation/cut in line system [FastLane] and to educate others if they need it, but its mostly for me J

Please, don’t argue about the “fairness” of any of the systems in the thread, I don’t need to see the arguments or hear any side of the story, just the information.

Ok, so, which Six Flags parks are you 100% sure have a FastLane/Lo-Q, or any other ride reservation system… How much are they and how many passes do you get? [Please specify if it’s free, or any other additional information about it that is important] and please name the attractions that you can use it for at each specific park… (And once again, only if you are 100% positive about it, and it’s a Six Flags park)

It's for something important and I need to get the facts straight... No other comments/opinions needed about FastLane/similar systems in this thread.

Thank you so much for your help in advance!

Price: $5

Passes: You get one card with the words "ride 1" "ride 2" all the way up to 5.

How it works: Take the card up to the ride operator (go in the exit) and he/she punches a hole in it.

What rides is it good on: All major roller coasters (excluding roller skater, the kiddie one), the hellevator, and thrill park theatre.

Where you must sit:
Hellevator-Section 1 or 5, depending on ride op.
Road Runner Express-Anywhere
Chang-Anywhere but front...sometimes anywhere but front OR back, depending on ride op.
T2-Same as Chang
Twisted Sisters-Anywhere
Thunder run-Previously it has been anywhere, but last few times I've viseted its only been 3rd to last row!
Thrill Park Theatre-Anywhere

Hope this helps!

SFWOA has it--$10 for 5 Fastlane rides.  When I was there in July you could only use it during certain times on both X-Flight and on S:UE.  It was not available on B:KF.  If I am not mistaken, on almost all of the rides with Fastpass, specific rows were marked off for Fastpass.  X-Flight had the back two rows of one of the trains, S:UE had a row near the front and row near the back, and Villain had two rows in the middle blocked off.

SFGAM has it too--but it was $10 for 4 Fastlane rides.  The only ride I remember it not being available on was Batman.  I know on Raging Bull and on V2 you entered the line closer to the station so you could wait for any seat with Fastlane.  I found Fastlane to run very smoothly at SFGAM.

SFDL has Fastlane too--$10 for 5 Fastlane rides.  I only used it on Superman so I can't comment on the rest of the rides but on Superman you went up the exit and there were two rows in the middle roped off for Fastlane riders.  I beleive the other coasters had a similar setup but could be mistaken.

Hope that helps!

SFA had free passes earlier this summer, valid only on certain rides, first come-first served. I THINK it was for BatWing, S:RoS, Wild One, Roar, possibly other rides.  Need help from SFA regulars here.  Going to SFoG for the "wake" for Viper, will report back.  Hope all goes well Alan!

Six Flags Great Adventure:

Price: Free

Passes: You get up to 4 passes.

Rides: Nitro, Medusa, Batman The Ride, B&R the Chiller, Rolling Thunder, Runaway Train, Scream Machine, Congo Rapids, Log Flume
How it works: Enter ride at Fast Lane entrance (or the ride exit if there is not a separate entrance) and hand pass to ride op.
Seating is usually in the middle of the train for a coaster, and for the water rides, you just get right on.

At SFOG, if I am not mistaking, you get a Q-bot (The cost depends on the # of people) and at the entrances of some of the major rides the is a sign that you scan you Q-bot on and it gives you a time (if the average wait for the ride is 2 hours,for example, the time will be two hours from then). Then you come back at that time and board.
New site coming Sept. 15th!
