What is a Fast Lane Pass?

A Fast Lane pass allows you to skip the regular line to certain attractions.

Once you have purchased a pass, you will receive a wristband that grants you access to the fast lane line.

Their motto is "Wait Less. Ride More" and you'll see this all around the park during your visit.

How to Skip the Line

For almost all attractions, there will be a separate, and more direct line that you will go through, rather than the regular line, which typically has many more turns and therefore is much longer.

Regular lines are designed to be very lengthy to accommodate guests on a crowded day.

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.

Admission is Not Included With Fast Lane

Purchasing a Fast Lane ticket is separate from buying admission (Btw you can Save $10 per ticket on the weekends when you purchase with us!)

You will need to purchase both admission and a fast lane pass to use the fast lane pass at the park.

Cheaper During the Week

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

Also, due to the 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 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.
