At the park now. Fast Lane is amazing! Just skipped a two hour line on Dragster and got on the ride in less than 15 minutes.

On a negative note, we were not allowed on the roller skater because we didn't have a kid with us?!? Is this a new policy? They were also only filling three of the rows and leaving the other five empty. Interesting...


Besides that, enjoying the day so far.

^That's got to be a new policy on Woodstock Express, they've always let adults ride without children.

^^Cue the next four pages in this thread about everyone that was at the park on opening weekend (that didn't get FastLane) bitching about how long and inefficiently run the queues were because of the new system! ;)


PS - Is Windseeker open?

^Yup! I'm actually watching it right now from Panda Express.

Just got on Millennium Force in 15 minutes with Fast Lane. At least a 90 minute wait. Even Blue Streak had a 1 hour posted wait time and we walked straight into the loading station. There really isn't a lot of people that seem to be using it. Most of the rides we were about the only ones using it with exception of Dragster and MF.

^Then it looks like the price of the pass is doing its job. It's expensive enough so it won't be overused by people. It'll be interesting to see if supply and demand drags the price down.

I'm hoping this is because of the crowds on opening day, and not because fast lane is making the GP's wait ridiculous.

If you looked down another line you'd see this...

So is TTD's station no longer filled to the brim? If so that's two wins for Cedar Point. =)

Very odd about Woodstock. Perhaps just try back later if there's a different operator. Unless they've changed the rule in the park map, you could use that to show them that it's different from Jr. Gemini.

Fair enough. I know the lines tend to be long on opening day anyway, so I'll judge for myself when I go tomorrow.

But i am very happy to hear of the really short waits with fastlane. Sounds like its worth it. :-)
