    What is a Fast Lane Pass?

    A Kings Island Fast Lane Pass allows you to skip the regular line, and access a faster line to quickly ride your favorite rides rather than waiting in a long line.

    How to Skip the Line

    Or, if you just hate waiting in lines in general.

    long line

    You'll be able to save time and experience the park without dealing with having to wait in any lines.

    One of the few unavoidable downsides of visiting a theme park, is having to wait in lines.

    Pro Tip

    When Should I Not Get a Fast Lane Pass

    If this is the case, you won't need a Fast Lane pass, as it may not be the best investment if the lines are already short.
