Don’t underestimate the line-less rides
Rides like Ninja, Goldrusher, and Viper almost never have a substantial line, but don’t let that fool you. These are true old school heroes of the park. So while everyone else is busy waiting for X2, you can have three rides on Viper, the original corkscrew coaster.
Check for special events (they’ll help you cut the lines)
Have a Discover card? If so, once a month you’ll have access to popular rides after the park closes. Drive a Honda? If yes, then on Fridays this summer you’ll get to romp the park an hour before opening. Boom.
Ditch the Fast Pass
At $700 a year ($500 on discount), the annual fast pass is eight times as expensive as the ticket itself. And what will it get you? Only a few hours of your life back that would have been spent waiting for the park’s most popular rides. Save yourself the cash and follow our other time-saving tips instead.
