Cedar Point's Fast Lane Pass: Everything You Need to Know

A Fast Lane Pass is one of the most convenient passes at Cedar Point.

In this guide, we'll explain what a Fast Lane Pass is at Cedar Point, what it allows you to do, the types of Fast Lane Passes available, what rides they include, and where to buy them.

    What is a Cedar Point Fast Lane Pass?

    A Cedar Point Fast Lane Pass gives riders access to a separate and faster line, where riders can get to ride attractions much quicker than they would in regular lines.

    A Fast Lane Pass makes it easy for visitors to skip the lines and avoid the waiting part of a theme park experience.

    There are several types of Fast Lane Passes which we'll cover in a later section, and each one is an additional cost, meaning it's not included with admission.

    How Cedar Point's Fast Lane Pass Works

    Once a Fast Lane Pass has been purchased, riders will be given a wristband that will signify to park staff, that they 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 at the beginning of the line and before boarding the ride.

    A Fast Lane Plus allows you to skip the line for all of the rides in the park including the fan-favorite rides such as Maverick, Millennium Force, Steel Vengeance & Valravn.

    A Season Long Fast Lane Plus Pass works exactly like the Fast Lane Plus Pass, however, you can skip the lines to all rides for the entire season.

    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 period, 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 less busy times such as a weekday, it may not make the most sense as the ride wait times will more than likely be minimal.

    Price Can Vary Depending On the Day & Season

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

    You'll want to click through the Fast Lane Calendar to see the different pricing options available.

    Is a Fast Lane Pass Included With Admission?

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

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

    Fast Lane Passes Can Sell Out

    Fast Lane Passes are available on a first-come, first-served basis, which means that during the busier seasons, it's not uncommon to sell out as they are extremely popular.

    Where to Buy a Fast Lane Pass

    You can purchase a Fast Lane Pass directly from the Cedar Point site, or at the park in person.
