    I'm glad you brought that up, dth316.

    To clarify, the skip the line pass, shown here







    is a bonus reward for passholders and good only for one ride, not an entire day of rides. Also you only have a limited time to use them before expiration.

    I thought I played my hand pretty well with this pass and used it to its greatest potential on this day.

    Since I was at the gates before opening, I got a look at what sort of crowd might be in the park that day. There were two large school groups, one from Nevada, the other from Arizona. I didn't get a locals passholder vibe from many in the crowd so I figured everyone would head over to X2 first and then proceed either clockwise or counterclockwise around the park to ride as many different rides as possible.

    I also knew that with park closing at 6 pm, the crowds would be capped for the day by 2 pm so the X2 line would most likely be shorter during that time.

    Accordingly, I decided that since I wanted to use the pass for X2, I needed to redeem it in the early afternoon. So while the gates opened and everyone ran towards X2, I went to Guest Relations to redeem the voucher for that pass and then rode Tatsu, Superman and Terminator a few times.

    I finally made my way over to X2 shortly before noon and the line looked like this



    What would have been a good hour to hour and a half wait was only 10 minutes thanks to the pass. Granted, X2 was a walk on later in the day like I was expecting but I had no way to be certain of that and so I did what I had to in order to guarantee myself at least one ride on it.

    Hopefully that addresses your concerns and if you don't mind, I have a trip report to get back to.

    Thanks! It was purely coincidental though.
