    What do you guys think the fastrack packages will be next year, do you think the rides in the packages will change and do you think the prices will change aswell?

    I wouldn't be surprised to see a bronze/silver/gold/platinum pricing structure of something like £25/45/70/125 with mostly the same rides on each package as this year except with Galactica replacing Rita or Thirteen on bronze due to anticipated removal of VR. One shots for Rita & Thirteen to go up to £10, Galactica reduced in price but all coasters to go up to a minimum of £6. Packages could offer a small saving over 1-shots but nothing significant. Also a possibility of a making a small number of WM one shots available at £10, but possibly not if they're using WM as a means to push sales of gold.

    Basically, a continuation of the trend to maximise FT revenue without increasing allocations. A policy which I have no complaints about.

    Smiler and Galactica are currently £10

    WM is only included in gold and platinum packages with no one shots available. If it existed it would probably just reduce demand for the more lucrative gold package.

    Paying £10 a shot to jump the queue on top of paying £50 odd quid for getting in, you would think that people have more money than sense :rolleyes:

    And who here remembers vq mobile? £5 for text updates and fast tracks on 5 rides. How times have changed. Its another reason to save and go to a non merlin park.

    Well of course, you could also pick up VQ tickets free of charge just by scanning your park ticket.

    Didn't there also used to be an Xcelerator pass back in the late 90s? That was one shot entry to the coasters via the exit for, I think, approx £70.

    I think WM will be included as a single shot fast track costing £10 - ideal for those with money burning a hole in their pockets (burning, wickerman, fire, ahhhh, i'll get my coat).

    Next season there will be two Fast Track queues at Box Office. Regular Fast Track queue, then a Fast Track+ queue, which moves quicker but requires a new Fast Track Fast Track ticket.

    Your right. I loved vqm but looking back was i just the first generation to make paying for fast tracks acceptable. I did like the offers they text you and at the end of the day you even had a text saying we hope you enjoyed your day.
