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!!

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.


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.

on my 7 rides only 2 were grabbed by the MCBR. I was kind of glad because we were going stupid fast into the MCBR to the point that last little hop up onto the flat of it almost hurt and I am someone who loves intense coasters.

So far it hasn’t slowed any train down today

But the MCBR grabs hard enough that you can make a pit stop and get back to the train before it goes into the 2nd half of the ride so you won't need to let us know about the bathroom breaks.

My past visit on Wednesday (mini photo TR for that, and Coastermania, still pending) was really the only time I thought the MCBR grab was noticeable of the 11 times I've ridden SV. And it didn't affect the second half, other than the drop off of the MCBR at all.
