Fast Lane is Cedar Fair Entertainment Company's version of a 'two-line' system for their amusement rides. It was first introduced at Kings Island in 2011, and then expanded to all Cedar Fair amusement parks for the 2012 season.[1]

History[edit]

It was first announced for Kings Island on July 18, 2011.[2] The park served as the testing park for it. On January 19, 2012, it was announced that Fast Lane would be rolled out at all the Cedar Fair parks for the 2012 season.[1] There is also Fright Lane, which is Fast Lane for the haunted attractions during the Halloween events.[3]

In 2013, Canada's Wonderland, Carowinds, Cedar Point, Kings Dominion, and Kings Island introduced Fast Lane Plus, which allows purchasers to bypass the lines of additional rides that standard Fast Lane holders would not have access to. Dorney Park did the same in 2014, introducing Fast Lane Plus for Wildwater Kingdom attractions and free rides on a pay-per-experience attraction. Also in 2014, Worlds of Fun introduced Fast Lane Plus allowing riders to bypass the lines of additional water slides at the Oceans of Fun water park.

How it works[edit]

Visitors can purchase Fast Lane access individually or as a group, with group pricing offering a lower price per group member. Visitors would then receive a wrist band which would give them the ability to cut to the front of the line on the park's most popular attractions. Originally, it could only be used from noon to 7:00 PM, but it was soon expanded to be available all day. Fast Lane differs from a virtual queue in that there is nothing virtual, only two physical queues (lines); one for regular patrons, and a separate one for the Fast Lane purchasers. The front row is not always available to fast lane riders on roller coasters. Fast Lane is not included for Platinum Pass holders, and are only valid for 1 day. Fast Lane is sold in certain amounts per day.
