I'm about to go on this trip with my school and we're planning to go to Fiesta Texas on a Saturday.
First of all, whats the difference between the Gold and Platinum?
Second, When I went online, it asked what day and what time I'm planning to go. It only gave me one choice, which is 11:00AM, but my school is gonna arrive there around 12:00PM. Are they gonna cancel my reservation or is somebody gonna take my place? If so, would I get a full refund?
And last, I'm gonna be going on May 8th, do you think its gonna be crowded or not? I really don't wanna waste $70 if its not even gonna be that crowded. If its not, then would you recommend getting the regular flash card?
Sorry for asking too much questions. >.<

From Noah MeeteerThe Gold Flash Pass lets you reserve your spot in line, and also dicounts 50 percent of the line. But the Platinum Flash Pass lets you reserve a spot in line, and cuts 90 percent of the line. The Platinum pass also allows you to re-ride rides without getting off.

You don't necessarily HAVE to reserve a Flash pass in advance. They have many there, and I doubt they'll sell out. And if you did reserve one already, they'll only give it away if they sell out.
I'm not sure about the ID thing. Whenever I get a flash pass, I always use my season pass ID.
Since you're going on a Saturday, I would recommend getting a Gold Pass just to make sure you ride all of them. Another thing you could do, is NOT get a Flash pass at the start of the day, and see how crowded it really is. That way you'll make sure you're not wasting any money on smething you don't need. :-)
And finally, the q-bot is the small Flash pass device. The Flash pass isn't a card. It allows you to make reservations for a ride from anywhere in the park.
Hope I helped. :-)
From Dana TruongThanks Noah(:

You've completely answered my first question, but I need a complete answer for the third one,
From Anthony O'NealI would send them an e-mail and ask. For collateral, they've used either my driver's license or my Season Pass (something with my picture and/or name on it) in the past. That was at Six Flags Great America.

I've only used the regular Flash Pass, so I can't answer the other question.
