Taking my family (parents and 3 teens) for our first ever trip to BGW this coming Saturday. Debating wether or not to buy unlimited quick queue v. regular quick queue. This website's crowd calendar lists this day as "red" meaning long lines. Weather is supposed to be beautiful. And we only have a single day. Opinions as to wether lines will truly be 30-45 minutes??  Thanks in advance.  Christy

I predict that there will be very heavy crowds that day

Saturday + Nice Weather + Concert = large crowds.

If you want to ride all thr coasters that day, i recommend quick queue.

Only buy the unlimited if you want to ride each ride(or one) several times. If one or two rides is good, just get the regular QQ. You'll have a bonus option for a reride on your choice of ride. Normally Apollo and Griffon keep short lines due to the number of people that they can handle. That means that with normal QQ. You can easily ride everything twice in a day. If you get to the park at opening, you'll be able to access short lines as well.

I recommend that which ever qq you get though that you should go straight for tempesto if you are going at opening, because tempesto is not yet included on anu of the qq's.

I don't think the park has any major concerts planned. Just the preschool concerts (which shouldn't affect crowds too much).

However, this time of year is peak school competition season, so don't be surprised if the crowds are heavier than expected thanks to that.

In regards to the front of line passes, If rides aren't a huge priority, I'd get the single use passes. If you wanna ride the coasters/water rides as often as you'd like, get the unlimited use passes. Just remember Tempesto, Mach Tower, and Loch Ness aren't included in the pass, so if the lines are long at those rides, you're gonna either have to wait it out, hit them early, or hit them late.

Lines on a typical Saturday usually average at around 45 mins. Factor in school groups and it might be heavier.
