Is anyone familiar with the Q-bot and how it works? I'm used to fast passes at Disney World. Anything like this? Just would like some more info before we go in early August!

you pay for and i do not know the rates, so much for each member of your party. as far as i know is only for shows. i have found no problems getting into shows unless wall to wall people.

This year rides are on the system as well.

In the past, I've been told that the Dollywood crowd tends to be more show-happy than ride-happy, but I've never been there in season so I can't say one way or the other.

The Q bot prices are 10 dollars for one person and 5 dollars for each additional person. Its a really good system from what we could see. It was like disney's fastpass, except a little better. You just put in your ride, how many people you have, and they page you when its your time to ride. You just walk up to the back entrance, and boom...you're on.

The Q-Bot at Dollywood is a pretty good deal when you consider how much it cost at Six Flags parks. My wife and I got one for (I think) $16 total. The park was REALLY busy, but the lines for rides were not that bad at all.
I agree with Steve, the lines for the shows were HUGE, but not really so much for the rids. But, the Q-Bot works for shows at Dollywood too. We weren't interested in the shows, but after paying well over double the amount for a Q at Six Flags, we were happy to pay for the Q at Dollywood.
The only unfortunate part was they don't have their system set up to log multiple rides so you can only plan for one at a time. The Q's at Six Flags STL will let you log multiple rides so you can plan your whole day at once.

The prices were higher than that when we rented them last year. They were supposed to be cheaper on Sundays but they charged me full price anyway. The prices are usually posted on the q-bot website. You can usually find the website link on SFOG or SFOT, SFSL, one of these will have it (at least they did last year). They are worth getting though.
