Kings Dominion Fast Lane Pass: Everything You Need to Know

A Fast Lane Pass is the most popular pass at Kings Dominion.

In this guide, we'll go over what a Fast Lane pass in Kings Dominion is, what it allows you to do, what rides it includes, and where to buy them.

    What is a Fast Lane Pass?

    A Kings Dominion 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.

    How to Skip the Line

    For almost all attractions, there will be a separate, and more direct Fast Lane pass that will allow you to quickly get to the ride.

    A Fast lane pass also allows you to skip the line an unlimited number of times on the day that you purchased the pass.

    Technically, you can go through the fast lane line, ride the ride, get off the ride, exit, and go back through the fast lane entrance line to ride again.

    You can do all of this before those who are waiting in the regular line have moved a few feet on a crowded day.

    Fast Lane is Cheaper During the Week

    Something important to note is the price of Fast lane passes varies and is cheaper during the week(vs weekends).

    Also, due to their popularity, Fast lane passes can sell out.

    When Should I Get a Fast Lane Pass?

    If you're only visiting for 1 day, you will want to get the most out of your day.

    You will have a much better experience if you're able to experience rides quickly and move on to the next one rather than waiting in line.

    If you hate waiting in lines in general, this may be a great fit for you.

    During busy days, wait times can be upwards of 1 hour.

    You can avoid this with a fast lane pass.


    If you plan to travel on a busy day (Check the Crowd Calendar to see), even if you get to the park early, as the day progresses the crowd will eventually show up.

    These passes can help your experience tremendously.

    When Should I Not Get a Fast Lane Pass?

    If you're planning to visit the park on a less crowded day, where the lines will naturally be less long.

    If waiting in line isn't a big deal to you and you don't mind waiting throughout the day.
