Why is it that you can purchase a voucher at CP but not get it processed till next year. When at other CF parks you can get it processed this year.

STUPID CP.

It's been a couple years since I've had any issues. I buy my pass at CP and visit different CF parks every year. I never even got a voucher this year. I paid, they scanned my pass and I was on my way.

Did you buy a new pass or renew? It sounds like just a voucher which is stupid considering it's the "basic" platnium pass they used this year.

Anyways, I asked because I went during the CP season pass holder appreaciation weekend and renewed my PP for next year and they just upgraded the one from this year (re-scanned it) and was good to go. And no, I didn't have a problem with CP...more so the public who had no idea what they were doing and then held up the line outside the processing center.

So you can renew and be fine, but then buy a voucher and wait? Doesn't make sense to me.

F2006, we have KI PP for 2009. If we had CP PP we could have just renewed it. Instead we had to get new passes according to the person at CP. They told us that we could not get the new passes till 2010, but that we could do it at any park.

When we went to KI to they scanned our 2009 KI PP for the info, took new photos (much better then the one they took at the beginning of the season) and gave us the new generic KI PP cards that are all ready to use next year.

I was told I could ONLY buy a voucher, (not a pass renewal), and that I had NO option other than to return to CP next year to process it (i.e., it wouldn't work if I went to Solace in March at KBF). Didn't go over too well... ;)

A renewal, or a voucher I could use at *another* CF park, they'd have had my money and I'd have left smiling (since there was no wait). The first lady told me that those two choices weren't going to fly, which didn't excite me....the "gentleman" that came up behind her had the same bad news, but delivered it in a most "un-customer-service-like" fashion...enough to GET me excited...and NOT in the good way! :(

Well I think we have found out that the SP CS people at CP are full of BS.

Im just kind of bummed that you have to go to the park to renew. Otherwise they make you pay full price and get a new picture. Same with my Six Flags, I believe.. You pretty much can only buy a new one online.

My Disney one I can renew without even setting foot back in the park. My Universal is an Auto renew, and back when I had to pay for a Busch/Sea World one years ago it was Auto renew..

I almost wish all parks would give the auto renew option. Its sometimes nice to not have to think about doing it every year, especially in some cases when different park renewals are at different times of the year.

Im even more irritated that I was at KD last week and totally forgot to do it. (Darn! I gotta go back??!?? :) )

Has anyone bought a 2010 voucher at CP this fall and already redeemed it for their picture/pass at KI? I thought someone earlier mentioned they did, but I wanted to confirm. I've already got my voucher from CP, and I'm going to KI tonight. If I could get it processed now and not have to deal with it in the spring (since I will probably go to KI before CP) that would be awesome.

Yes CP Chris. I did exactly this last Sunday. No problem at all. Took about 5 minutes total including getting new photos of the 4 of us.

As Jeff has mentioned before, part of it is Cedar Fair/Point's "resort" mentality, which de-emphasizes season passes by its nature. Doesn't Dick even call it a "season's pass"?! I wonder if deep down Kinzel would like SP's just eliminated altogether!?!

Unless he's prepared to DRAMATICALLY reduce prices on admission, I don't think he would like the impact that would have on attendance. Oh, sure, the per-caps would go up, but what good is that if attendance drops noticeably? I know that I, for one, would significantly curtail my visits...!

Take the total number of season passes sold, multiply by the average number of visits per pass, subtract the number of passes sold, then subtract that number from total attendance. I'm guessing that while it might not be a *huge* number for Cedar Point, it would be a large enough number to have a noticeable impact.
