In the shop page, it lists the attractions that its valid on.

I didn't go on a Saturday, but last year neither coaster got a line and RY75 ran with minimal operations. Unless a larger number of the people there ride TT or more people go to the event to ride it, it will probably be one of the best times to get on it.

I was noticing that yesterday. I think something must be wrong with their website right now because a lot of rides that are currently on Fast Lane don't have those symbols. Avalanche, Dominator, Delirium, Bad Apple, Blue Ridge Tollway,
Dodgem, Flying Eagles, and Wave Swinger are all missing the logo, but you can see that they're still included on the Fast Lane page. I wouldn't worry about it too much. As Mike said, the shop page where you can buy the Winterfest Fast Lane clearly lists the 8 attractions that it'd be valid for.

I was at last year's event and literally no rides held any sort of lines. Most people were doing the shows or the special attractions like ice skating. I can't imagine that the line for Twisted Timbers would get so bad during this event that you'd need a Fast Lane, but, at the same time, it IS only $35. Might be worth it just for peace of mind.

Why on earth is Avalanche not open for Winterfest?

Probably because that whole section of the park isn't open?

It was a half-joking/rhetorical question, but do you mean the area that is connected by a single pathway to the kids area that will be open for the event?

(In all seriousness I haven't been to KD's WF and have no idea where they cut off areas, etc, but it just feels like a no brainer to have a snow themed bobsled coaster that likely has little chance of valleying/having operational issues open during a winter/holiday event.)

^^-- their indoor coaster will also be closed! But if they're only going to run 2, they made the right choice. Dominator has great view of the lights and feels more part of the event as a whole than any other coaster I've ridden at a holiday event... and that includes the snow-themed Alpengeist.

The Cedar Fairyest thing about this event is that the kids area is mostly all open except for Boo Blasters, the indoor family friendly dark ride with heat. At least rides like Flight of Fear are in the back of the park so it's sort of understandable.

Thanks guys!I went on Saturday December 30th last year and it was packed! Huge lines for all the rides and we waited 30 min for the blue ridge tollway which is why I was wondering if fast lane would be needed. But it sounds like going opening weekend in November should be a lot less crowded

Flight of Fear would take 10 min to load due the crappy restraints that nobody will fit in with a winter coat (that aren't necessary because... it's Virginia.)
