Did they happen to mention how heavy that train is?

I feel bad because this is all I post about lately but no... if a park has the ability to open and there's demand and they choose to stay closed then they're dumb. Period. Be creative and figure it ou

So basically there were about as many rides open as there would be in peak season with 15 mph winds.

2 hour waits on Sunday and Monday gave for 25-ish minute waits for SV in FL+. Despite the unfavorable dent it put in my wallet, I will say it was absolutely worth the money for the short time we were there.

SV waits were 2 hours on a Monday as well?? I'm going this Sunday and Monday and got only FL+ for Sunday, was hoping Monday would be manageable.

When I went in May, I was in the park on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday and I found that Monday was more crowded than Sunday. All the days were good in May, but the I got on the fewest rides on Monday.

It's been that way for a while. Sunday (or Monday holiday) tends to be a travel day, so the resort people won't be in the park.

 

Do you recommend us using our FL+ on Monday instead of Sunday then? We bought FL+ when they had the good deal over Christmas, so we will use it one of the two days.

Having not kept up on the forum, I'm curious if they have gotten around to running all 3 trains on SV? Is lengthening the brake run an option?

As someone who has never used FL on any visit, my advice might not be the best. But in reality, I would decide based on the weather. If both days have similar weather, I would use the FL for the first day, to get all my desired rides in ASAP; then I would be able to relax and pace my day out on the second day.

FL+ makes the day more relaxing thee is no stress about trying to get all the rides in.

Nope

I feel pretty confident saying "no chance whatsoever" before next off-season, and "extremely unlikely" during the off-season. The ride was designed adequately; they just needed to turn up the brakes a little.

You should determine it on the day that you are at the park, If the weather looks bad then NO and if you go in for early entry or notice that a major ride is down, then possibly no. It is a day time decision. It will also allow you to estimate the crowds.

If you have two identical days, use FL on the first day to get all the rides, the second day you don't have to worry about anything because you already did all the rides. Just go at your own pace.

Thanks for all the advice everyone. Our plan will be to probably use the FL+ on Sunday, but we will do early entry and assess the queue situation before activating FL+. The weather looks pretty decent on both Sunday and Monday (albeit a storm may be in on Monday night). Will be very hot thought (heat indices up to 110!!)

What I am trying to say is FL is exactly that going at your own pace no planning just going to what you want and riding. You don't feel worn out at the end either because you didn't have to stand for a stupid amount of time.

^ Not only are you not nearly as worn out, but being able to walk right into Maverick's station and bypassing 2 hour waits on SV for 15-30 mins waits is worth the price alone.

 

I kinda wish they take Gatekeeper off FL+ and figure out a way to merge Millennium Force's line straight into the station and put that on FL+ instead.

Case in point: This past Monday Valravn was a 75 minute wait. FL+ got me TWO literal walk-on's. I'm not here to push for folks to get it for both days (that can be a tough $196 choice to make), but I had originally went in thinking I'd only need it Monday but got it for Sunday too after arriving and assessing what I wanted and could afford. It's made doing as many rides as I wanted in the park sooooo manageable.

It was more like 1 1/2 hour for most of the day, and dropped to 1 hour by the evening. Do it first thing right at rope-drop for Early Access and you might manage a 30-ish minute wait (potentially less if you power-walk).

Millennium is only on the normal FL because you need some incentive for somebody who can’t pay for the plus. No point in selling a product to skip lines that aren’t existant. I know Kings Island had Diamondback on the regular FL for a while, it may still be.

Like it’s been said before, if you’re traveling to Cedar Point do not hesitate to get the fast lane plus. Yes, it hurts at first to spend over $90 per ticket but once in the park it’s like being in a dream. You literally have the entire park to yourself including steel Vengence. It will make your trip amazing. There was probably 10+ times me and my girlfriend were walking thru the fastlane thinking “imagine standing in that line” and then literally walking on maverick and valravyn and TTD. Amazing

Definitely agree. Some people view Fast Lane as unnecessary and a waste of money, but it actually makes a lot of sense if you're traveling from far away. Most of the time, Fast Lane Plus actually costs less than a 1 night hotel & ticket to the park. Therefore two days at the park, one with fast lane plus, and two nights at a hotel can actually cost less than three days at the park and 3 nights at a hotel. This is only true if you a) live far from the park and b) don't have a season pass, so obviously I can't justify getting a Flash pass at my home park (Great America), but at other parks it makes a ton of sense. You spend more on the fast pass, less on hotels and tickets.

Exactly, my home Park is knotts and I’m pretty much at the point of not going on super crowded days. I would never pay for fastlane there. If you’re traveling far to check out a park, you better be purchasing fastlane!!

At one point in time you entered at the front of the station. That's how it was when I used it back in 2012. They had one employee right there and another at the turnstile at the back of the station. They would let in maybe 10 or so Fast Lane users and then the person in the back would let in about 25 or so from the regular line.

 

 

Honestly when I used it last week it was only useful for Steel Vengeance, Valravn, TTD, and Maverick. Every other ride was either a walk on, or in Millennium Force's case the line wasn't all the way down the station ramp. It was well worth it for those four rides though. Steel Vengeance was 15-20 minutes all day for FL+ while the regular line was 1.5 hours or more and the other three were essentially walk ons with FL+.

At the park today. Going to see how many rides I can get on SV without fast lane, and only taking breaks for the bathroom and my 2 meals.

The days we're gonna be at the park the temperature will be in the 90s - a little concerned they're going to ramp up the MCBR, hopefully I'm wrong.
