What is a Quick Queue Pass

Quick queue is essentially Busch Garden's fast pass system.

It gives you access to a separate and faster line, in order to skip the regular line and spend more of your time riding your favorite rides rather than waiting.

You can receive a wristband or you can also have it on your mobile device as a Quick Queue eticket!

Most Quick Queue lines actually bring you right next to the rider loading station, which is a nice perk as there's much less walking (and waiting).

Is it Included With Admission?

No, it is an additional cost as you will need an admission ticket in order to be able to use the Quick Queue pass.

How Does Quick Queue at Busch Gardens Work?

It's super simple.

As long as you have your appropriate wristband, or eticket on your phone, you can walk through the Quick Queue line, show the park attendant that you have access, and then just walk straight through the line all the way down to the ride.

Assigned Rows

Some rides will have assigned rows specifically for Quick Queue passholders, which ensures that you'll have a short waiting experience.

On the flip side, if you prefer being in a certain row for rides such as the first row, or the last row, you may not be able to do this due to the assigned rows.

If you're planning to visit the park during the busy season (the summer season on the weekends), be prepared to pay more on Saturdays and Sundays in particular.

This is when the park is at its busiest, and the prices will reflect that as more visitors will want to skip the lines on these days.

As we mentioned, the weekends are typically the busiest time for the parks, which means the lines will also be longer.
