Knott's Berry Farm's Fast Lane Pass: All You Need to Know

A Fast Lane Pass is the most popular add-on used at Knott's Berry Farm.

In this page, we'll explain what a Knott's Fast Lane Pass is, what it allows you to do, what rides it includes, when to buy them, when not to buy them, and where you can buy them.

    What is a Knott's Fast Lane Pass?

    A Knott's Berry Farm Fast Lane Pass gives one rider access to a separate, faster 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 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 ride's line and before boarding the ride.

    Is it Included With Admission?

    No. A Fast Lane pass is an additional cost and visitors will still need a Knott's Berry Farm ticket to access the park.

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

    Is a Reservation Required?

    No. Unlike other parks where a reservation must be made days ahead (and sometimes weeks), despite having the actual pass, all that you need is the actual wristband and you can head straight to the Fast Lane line.

    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.

    You can prevent (or at the least minimize) this situation, with a Fast Lane pass.

    When Should I Not Get a Fast Lane Pass?

    If you don't mind waiting in lines, then it may not be the best investment for you.

    Weekday Visit During the Slow Season
