Best time to visit Cedar Point

Monday, May 12, 2003 3:20 PM
Hi everyone I was thinking about making my first trip to Cedar Point over the summer. I want to spend about 3 days there to be sure to ride everything plenty of times. So what days of the week would be best for my visit? I want to go around the first of June.

Thanks

*sigh* I'm sorry to see your mouse button wasn't working, otherwise I know you would have searched for this.

Anywho, the best days are always Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Whoops..

From www.cedarpoint.com (always good to go to a specific website first) -

Cedar Point recommends visiting on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, when attendance is lower. Contrary to popular belief, holidays such as Memorial Day and Labor Day do not result in unusually large crowds. The months with the lowest attendance are May, June and September.

Now wasn't that fun! ;-)

If you are going for 3 days, your best bet is to buy a season pass. They are on sale for $89 right now.

Go on a day in the middle of the week when the forecast calls for a chance of rain, it keeps a lot of the GP away

Thanks for everyone that responded with a not smartass comment. I prefer to get the information from park visitors and not their own website. They could have an agenda of their own....

I agree with you CuBlink, but common sense would tell me their information is correct. What other agenda would they want? There is no reason to assume they would lie about days when attendence is down, and besides the 'days' are the same for mostly every park.

I am also heading down next Tuesday and Wednesday. I have had good luck going during the week in May, but have noticed the last couple of years of the increase of class physics classes. There are usually more school busses in the parking lot than cars. You should try to stay at a CP resort, so you can get in early each day too. Have fun!!!!!

I just want to make extra sure because this is a very long trip for me and I want to plan accordingly. Most likely a once in a lifetime trip. I can't wait to go, thanks for the info

If you are going anytime in the summer go mid-week. I personally like to visit during the Halloweekends though, especially October. The past few times a have been there the crowds have been minimal.

Is it so hard to actually look on CP's website? They have a link to Season Pass information right from the main web page.

http://www.cedarpoint.com/public/trips/tickets/season_pass_central/articles.cfm?page=Ticket%20Information%20

CP Season pass, $99

CP Combo (waterpark), $149I don't know where MoonoverParma got that price...

Redman,
Is it so hard to keep quiet unless you know the answer to the question? He asked if the $89 season pass price includes Soak City, he didnt ask what the regular price of a season pass was. My guess would be that is does not include Soak City

*sigh* I'm not going to start an arguement, but the website it very clearly in a very large RED box. It is just a waste of space to ask questions that are answered on each site for a reason.

some have said "check their web site..." etc etc etc

I just checked CP's sight... I checked their operating schedule and their price list... the two OBVIOUS things that are done when trip planning. I didn't see anything in those two areas that specifically that gave tips on when to visit. Only by checking out the Tips and FAQ's do you see that... and even then it is pretty far down the list.

You know... some of us are not familiar with web sites for EACH AND EVERY PARK in the known universe. Most people, I assume, look for operating schedules and perhaps cost. Also, many web sites do not include tips on when to visit. No need to get all obnoxious because someone is not 100% familiar with CP's web site.

Kind of hard to take a post as objective if a park or coaster name is part of the "user name"

...and that is the reason why Redman directed him to the site???????

The heavens have opened up!

There are a zillion search engines as well. As for this topic: i'm done talking about it.

Yeah, so anyway, I bought my season pass for $89 at Meijer located in Sandusky back on May 1. If you buy through the park, I believe it's $99. This is just for the park, and does *not* include Soak City.

There, that wasn't so hard. :)

Well, I would hope a person could deduce (that is to arrive at as the result of reasoning with logic) that something that Cedar Point is selling for $149 will not be available ANYWHERE for $89. The pass being sold at specific locations for a $10 discount is not unheard of...but to think that somehow something would be sold at a $60 discount is ludicrous.

Never mind answering the question....he's going to CP on his hineymoon. I was just about to make a snide comment involving the phrase "lots and lots of rides" but decided to let someone else have a turn.
