Furthermore, this kind of says to me, have a fun time, and if you have lots of money, have a REALLY good time.
Honestly, the Disney model is the best model.....no doubt about it.
It just ain't right.
Fast Lane wont be a hit in all of the parks, but it will definitely be purchased at the big parks, especially at that price. If someone wants to pony up so they can cut in line, why should the park turn their money down? The trick though will be setting a high enough price. If too many people start using it, then the value of it will be lost and lines will be longer and slower.
I was never sure why they decided to stop doing that. The cost couldn't have been that high. Maybe they figured that it just wasn't worth it...or that it didn't really work. Obviously this one will work for them, they are getting some extra revenue.
Flash Passes at Six Flags start at $35, so that seems more reasonable to me. I've never seen these be a problem, because it seems to work like the Disney Fast Passes. . . the more popular the ride, the longer you have to wait to ride with the Flash Pass.
