I'm sure us Kings Dominion regulars appreciate the price compared to the Busch Gardens variant. No more long waits for Volcano!

That is an INSANE deal. I'm stunned by how cheap this is. If people want it, it's something you need to buy quickly because there's no way these don't sell out.

Doesn't include Fright Lane of course, but it does work on rides through Haunt. Absolutely nuts.

I might have to pick one up. I normally use a guest assistant system for my medical condition, but ride ops are very inconsistent on execution.

That's a mind-blowingly low price. I'm not sure if I want this just because I visit enough that waiting in lines isn't a big deal for me, but for someone who visits a handful of times per year but not regularly, this is one of the best deals I've ever seen come from the park.

Also, don't forget the ridiculously high price of a regular one-day Fast Lane pass. This thing costs less than two daily passes.

From a business perspective, this is brilliant. It has people like me, a regular visitor who never pays for a one-day fast pass, considering giving them $115 that I otherwise wouldn't spend.

I'm not sure how much I'm going to get down there but I'm really debating get this. I'm about 4 hours away but even if I only go 3 times that 38 bucks a trip. I can't believe they are this cheap. I know attendance is a lot higher at great adventure but they are charging 399 for their version.

In my experience, KD has a lot of unexpectedly crowded days, and I often by FastLane once I am there.

Riding Volcano and Flight Of Fear right when you get to the park could save you quite a bit of money. Going later in the day is a completely different story, however. If you're not in a rush to get to the park then I would absolutely take advantage of the offer. Even only if you're going 3 times, it will still save you the missery of Volcanos full Queue.

I plan on combining some of the trips with Busch Gardens so a Saturday at KD with the fast pass and going to Busch Gardens on a Sunday might be the way to go. I wonder how many of these they are going to sell.

I find the price difference between this and BGW's version incredibly humorous. KD's has value. BGW's is a joke and shows an assumption that people are stupid.

Where? Behind the rabbit?

Decided to get KD season passes this year and had to pick one up. Probably will end up going 6-8 times or so, but now it'll be easy to justify going on a Saturday with this thing. Hopefully they don't have too many available or it will make the system worthless. But to test it out for a season is certainly worth it at that price point.

I prefer BG's method of doing this. From a business perspective having to artificially limit the number of passes makes no sense. Either there will be way too many, or the first buyers will get a great deal I suppose.

What's crazy is that KD doesn't have the cheapest season long Fastlane, that would be both California's Great America and VallyFair. I made a chart of the pricing at all Cedar Fair Parks below.

Carowinds has sold out, but was previously $125. It seems to me that Cedar Fair is leaving money on the table with these prices.

Not surprised they didn't offer this for the four most visited parks in the chain.  They could've charged an arm and a leg for them at KBF, CW, CP and KI and the locals still would've gobbled them up in a split second leaving the ones who weren't able to get them in a state of uproar.

I ended up purchasing the fast lane plus pass. This is my first year with a cedar fair platinum pass as well as a Busch Gardens platinum pass so I want to take advantage of it.

I'm about 4 to 4 and half hours from kings Dominion but my thinking on the fast lane plus pass is that now instead of driving down Friday night and paying for a hotel that night I can just wake up and leave at a reasonable hour on Saturday and show up whenever and not worry about lines. Then I'll go to Busch Gardens Williamsburg on Sunday and head home that night. If I do this trip a few times I already save a decent amount of money by not paying for a hotel Friday night.

The last time I did this trip I did Busch on Saturday and Kings on a Sunday. I found that Busch was really crowded so I'm hoping that it ends up being a bit less crowded on Sundays. I'll have to drive an extra hour home on Sunday since Busch is farther but if the crowds are less than it is well worth it.

I am curious to see if they end up raising the prices for this next year though if enough people are taking advantage of this. I'm not very far from Dorney but unless you're going to the water park all the time the fast lane plus isn't needed on the rides side.
