    This basically sounds like a must add on, although I'd ultimately be curious as to how much line you actually save. If anyone decides to use it, I'd be interested in how it was. I doubt we'll go much before August this year.

    It's limited to a certain amount of purchases per day. But yeah, I'm skeptical about the effectiveness if it ends up being more than a stealth increase to ticket prices. I figure enough younger peeps hang out here, so surely someone will try this out.

    I gotta admit as a coaster/Cedar Point buff, I would pay the extra coin for this in an instant if it doubled the amount of rides I got to hit per day. My days of waiting in line for 3 hours are done. Shit is so fucking annoying.

    Exactly. I am mid-20's and as I don't mind waiting 1-2 hours for Top Thrill Dragster or Millennium Force (only 2 I would do that for, mayyybe Maverick) with a group of people, if I only have to wait 1 hour TOPS, which I feel this "Fast Lane" should be 15-45min tops, I would be happy.

    You have to order ahead of time, so hopefully one of you does it early on so we can know if it is worth it

    Also, stophe, if you are a coaster buff, if you haven't gotten to ride The Hulk as Universal Studios or The Kraken at Sea World in Orlando, you are missing out. 2 of my favorite roller coasters in the nation.

    I can assure you, as the resident CP expert, and resident expert of all things amusement park and coaster-related, that this IS worth it. They demo'd it at Kings Island last season (which is celebrating it's 40th anniversary this season), and from what I have heard, it was amazing. Buy it. Use it. Enjoy everything twice as fast.

    I would also like to take this time to talk about some new additions to CP this season.

    [​IMG]

    What are they doing here? Where did the screen go? I hear you cry. Well, as you know, the new CEO of Cedar Fair (the company that owns Cedar Point, etc etc) Matt Ouimet, was the PRESIDENT of Disneyland during it's comeback. He took a tour of Cedar Point at night and said "This place is nice, but we really need to light this place up.". And so, that's exactly what they are doing with... ILLUMINOSITY

    [video=youtube;qLyyRuzoHZk]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLyyRuzoHZk[/video]

    GONE is the screen, the booths are moved to the side, and IN comes a stage show, fireworks display, and MORE! The midways will also be lit up, DJs stationed at the stage and historic ballroom to entertain the crowds after closing, man oh MAN what a Summer it's going to be at the Point!

    http://www.cedarpoint.com/what-s-new/luminosity

    However, I would wait for next season, because rumor has it... that... well...

    Rumors SWIRLING that Cedar Point will be adding a B&M wing-rider coaster.

    I go to KI more than CP since they include the water-park with the dry park so I know more about this. Nobody gets this fast lane thing it because it's not worth it. Its an extra $50 on top of the price of admission. Just go during the week and you won't need it.


    That video of the midway show looked friggin flaming. Looks like a whole show of the Miami Marlins HR feature. Nobody sticks around for it or is in line for more rides. Waste of space and money.

    Universal has this and it runs between $40 and $70 a day per person, depending on season. If you have one or two days and want to ride every ride, I guess it is worth it. I have a season pass so I just stop after work or have a day off, ride Hulk or Harry Potter and leave, for $180 a year with free parking. One day standard ticket for Universal plus Express runs over $150 during the busy seasons. A lot of Europeans buy these Express passes.

    And furthermore, this is absurd. During the season, there is NO SUCH THING as a non-busy day at Cedar Point. It simply doesn't exist. Expect lines to be long whenever you go. No exceptions.

    $90 a person at CP for one day isn't worth it for people that actually work for their money instead of getting it from their parents. You don't know more than me. I actually go to these parks instead of reading about it at home. Come at me bro.





    Now someone quote me.

    LOL. Even if that were the case, I would still know more, because whenever we go to an amusement park with the family, everyone looks to me as to where to go, EVEN IF I'VE NEVER BEEN THEIR BEFORE EITHER.

    I like what Disney (Yes, I know they dont have that many good rollercoasters) has more... there they have a thing called Fast Pass where you can get a ticket for a certain time at a ride, and come back at that time and stand in a 15min line max... And its free too....
