No, it's a separate event.



Actually, the Gold and Platinum Passes do allow guests to visit Halloween Haunt an unlimited amount of times. Take a look at the benefits of the season passes in the link provided. :)


Ah, thank you I stand corrected :) That's bonus news for me lol

You're very welcome! As for thepoint4life23 visiting during Halloween Haunt season, I would like to point out that if he does purchase either a Fastlane or Fastlane Plus pass during the hours of Halloween Haunt (7pm through 12am), they can only be used for the rides and not the mazes (Haunted houses). If he is interested in doing the mazes and wants to do them quickly, he can purchase the Frightlane Pass, which is a punch card that can be used at all the mazes. Keep in mind that with the Frightlane card, you can only access each maze once with the card. Any visit to the mazes thereafter must be done by waiting in the regular line for the mazes. :)

^ That's a really great deal, the Platinum Pass is. Only $218 Cdn and that's roughly = $160+ U.S. :b
And that includes admission to other CF parks, too. Great deal IMhO.

Yep. Haunt events are always packed when we go on Saturdays. When we go to KI, we spring for the FL+ and the Fright Lane Card. It's priceless. There's zero planning and we are able to leisurely ride everything with multiple re-rides and hit every haunt without planning while taking plenty of time in between to relax and enjoy a beer or two. Meanwhile, everyone else is waiting in lines over an hour long.

Was at the park last weekend, saw first hand they're taking line jumping at least a bit more seriously than they have in the past (which was not at all). 2 guys joined the single rider line on YS, and after the merge point of FL/Standby, switched over to the front row lane. Cast member working at the merge point saw and pointed them out to security, who were waiting in the station for them.

Best part is the 2 were very upset they weren't going to be allowed on.

Of course they were upset. Step 1 for getting what you want in 2019 is to yell and scream when you're confronted with doing something wrong. Trust me. I know.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Hear this! A Platinum pass is $218 USD from American parks but $218 CDN here. Our family bought 4 at Wonderland as we also plan on visiting parks in the US this year.q

How is the fast lane setup at CW? Do they merge the lines or is there a separate line for FL?
Thanks.

I had to use FastLane this past Sunday as the park was slammed. Most of the FastLane queues I used brought you right to the station and since Canada's Wonderland assigns rows on most coasters (you can request a row still), you're usually on the ride in less than 5 minutes.

Just make sure you knock out Guardian early. It isn't on the FastLane and we ended up skipping it on this visit since the queue was 90 minutes. It pained me to do so since I really like the ride, but I couldn't justify that wait when I could ride Leviathan 7-8 times in the same time span.
