I don't consider using the disabled guest entrance on some rides such as intimidator as "merging" into the station,it's more like cutting the line entirely.Now if they were to merge the lines somewhere in the middle instead of creating a seperate queue then it'd be a bit more fair but still the park shouldn't be offering the ability to bypass the lines at all just because someone pays to do so & I'm not the only one who's not happy with this as there were plenty of other guests in line for the rides we went on who were just as unhappy seeing a whole bunch of people cutting the lines as we were.

Even if the system were free I still wouldn't use it,there should only be one access point for all rides & nobody should be given preference just because they pay extra to do so.I still don't ride volcano & never did all that much even before the system was added simply because the ride is boring & "sucks" in my opinion,now I know that may offend a lot of KD fanboys here who think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread(in the coaster world) but not everyone likes it for their own reasons.

I've gone pantless!

You've made your views quite clear. Please give them a rest, lest you wear them out. Everybody understands your feelings about Fast Lane.

In fact, I think everyone should give Fast Lane a rest for a while.

^I agree. We might have to start handing out time-outs. Fast Lane is happening, if you don't like it, it is time to get over it and move on.

If someone wants to ask a question about a specific detail on how Fast Lane works, that is fine. But any other discussion about why you don't like it, will be deleted and your account could possibly be suspended.

Does anyone think that it being race weekend, that the park will be a little crowded? I might possibly go on Sunday, and kind of want to avoid large crowds

I think the race will not make much difference since it is calling for rain Saturday. Can not remember if it is a night race or not.

Good thing I'm going on the 5th,just hope the weather cooperates as it's not looking good on accuweather's extended forecast.

I really think we'll see a kidzville expansion in 2013,or at least something for the kids to replace the cave,I just remembered that the tree swing ride was removed earlier in the year just prior to opening weekend so a much needed PS add on seems to be in the works which makes perfect sense since the kids area hasn't seen anything new since 2004 & many of the kiddie rides have been around since the park's opening back in 1975.

I wonder might we be seeing ghoster coaster be rethemed to woodstock express?
