Six Flags still offers new large attractions on Platinum pass where you only have a limited number of rides, right? I remember using it when Dare Devil Dive at SFoG opened. We had to purchase two extra add-on's and schedule our ride times. I think we may have done this for Goliath, also.
^ Yes, that's generally true for opening year. One should expect 1x only on the big new ride on Platinum and no skips at any other level. Sometimes they allow 2x at Platinum, sometimes they will sell additional skips for a fee, but it's not guaranteed and can change throughout the year.
Not to mention, Maxx Force will have an absolutely horrid capacity (even worse than YOLOcoaster), so I'm sure they are going to try and limit the number of Flash Pass users as much as possible on this particular coaster.
^Ok, yes it will be a capacity nightmare but have it this way. Say the train has 16 seats per train, and they dispatch the train within 1 min. Doing the math here per hour 60 X16 -------- 960
Now they would be able to dispatch 960 riders per hour, which is still a decent riders per hour (RPH) rate. Of course this is Six Flags and it can be less RPH rate and then this coaster can experience severe downtime but at this point we never know.
Plus, the trains hold 12 people (assuming the concept video holds true), so that really makes it 720 theoretically, which we all know is basically impossible.
The good news is the layout is very short, so if Six Flags operators want to be stupid fast, the block system definitely allows it (as opposed to a ride like GhostRider). However that also means very heavy stacking is possible, so we'll see.
I'd say you should go in expecting 7-min dispatches, frequent breakdowns, and 4-5+hour long lines. That way you have a pretty good chance of being pleasantly surprised when it's (hopefully) not as bad.

^Very true! I hope I get down to Kentucky Kingdom to ride it this year.
Also, long lines on Maxx Force also mean shorter lines in the rest of the park. Raging Bull, Superman Ultimate Flight, and Goliath will be long, but hopefully not as much. Especially Vertical Velocity, since now there is another launched coaster in the park.
