What is a Fast Lane Pass

A Fast Lane pass gives riders access to a separate line, where riders can get to the front of the line much quicker than regular lines (for select rides).

Once a Fast Lane pass has been purchased, riders will be given a wristband that will signify to park staff, that you have access to the Fast Lane line.

Throughout the line, there will be various checkpoints where you will need to show your wristband to park staff, and ride operators. These checkpoints are normally in the beginning of the line, and ride before boarding the ride.

Daily Price Changes

Prices aren't the same for each day, and are typically more expensive on the weekends.

Is It Included With Admission?

No. A Fast Lane pass is an additional cost and visitors will still need a Cedar Point ticket in order to access the park.

In short, you are not able to use a Fast Lane pass without an admission ticket.

Fast Lane vs Fast Lane Plus

While Fast Lane allows you to skip the line of most rides that Cedar Point offers, Fast Lane Plus allows you to skip the line for all of the rides in the park.

When Should I Get a Fast Lane Pass

Skip Waiting In Lines

If you're not a fan of waiting in lines, and are looking to ride the most rides possible in the shortest span of time, a Fast Lane pass will be a great fit for you.

The nice thing about this pass, is that you're able to get back in line immediately after riding as well.


If you've ever waited in a regular line, there's a good chance that you have seen Fast Lane riders ride the ride multiple times, before you've been able to ride it once.

Traveling With Kids

One of the most difficult parts of being at a theme park with kids is having to stand in lines.

Most kids don't have the patience to stand in lines, and honestly it just isn't very fun to stand around in general.

When Should I Not Get a Fast Lane Pass

If you don't mind waiting in lines, or you are visiting during the less busier times such as a weekday, it may not make the most sense as the ride wait times will more than likely be minimal.
