Cedar fair juices up the 2008 season pass offer.

Wednesday, October 17, 2007 4:18 PM
Vallyfair and several other cedarfair parks are now giving you a free day in the park for the remainder of this year if you purchise a 2008 platinum pass.

as seen here..


There is no offer as of yet for cedar point.(don't hold your breath).

Looks like the season pass sales have been slow this year. Here is what they are offering...

"NEW! SPECIAL HALLOWEEN HAUNT OFFER - Purchase your 2008 Season Pass NOW and receive one free visit to the 2007 Halloween Haunt at ValleySCARE. Simply show your 2008 Valleyfair Season Pass certificate or 2008 Cedar Fair Platinum Pass certificate at the Season Pass entrance turnstiles and receive one complimentary admission pass to the 2007 Halloween Haunt at ValleySCARE. This offer is valid on October 14, 19-21 & 26-31, 2007. Limit one complimentary admission per Season Pass certificate."

This offer is also being sold at most of the "paramount" parks. *** Edited 10/17/2007 8:19:04 PM UTC by crazy horse***

Oh now PKI is throwing Free parking into the mix with purchase.

This whole CF system is a fiasco right now IMHO

Chuck, who purchased the platinume to include parking (Which wasn't offered in a reg pass but is now.)

WOF is now offering parking with the Gold Pass (WOF+OOF) as well. They are also allowing one free 2007 admission with each 2008 pass purchase.

Why not just give free admission for the remainder of the year? There is only 2 weekends left in the season.

I wonder if cedarpoint is going to offer this deal as well?

As I recall, KI has included free parking as a pre-season perk for several years. I understand the frustration of buying Platinum for the parking, but the price difference was more than a parking pass. No more of a fiasco than any other year, CF, PP, or even KECO.

I doubt CP is going to offer free anything. They need more people these last few weekends like I need a hole in my head.

Just way too easy. Never mind.

So anyway, what's Geauga Wildwater Lake Kingdom Over Ohio offering with their season passes? A piece of the ride of your choice? *** Edited 10/20/2007 3:06:28 AM UTC by RatherGoodBear***

Wow, you really need to let it go. The constant harping on the subject every chance you get isn't really cute or funny anymore, except to maybe three or four people.

Neither is Elitism

On the part of whom?

"Off with their heads!"

On the part of whom? LOL You of course. The person who decides what is funny and what isn't. What is relevant and what isn't. What is a fact and what is a rumor. Who is Ok and who is sad. How much more elite can you get?

Oh by the way, make it five people because I thought it was funny and clever and since you know little or nothing about me I doubt you included me in the original three or four. Geez maybe there are even more people who thought it was funny. One never knows.

I'm "elite" because I want to keep something on-topic on my own site? Whatever dude.
Friday, October 19, 2007 1:28 PM
Off topic? The topic was what different CF parks were doing about passes for 2008. RGB made a joke on that subject at the expense of CF and you pounced. Your pro CF bias was showing big time.

Then you announce that only three or four people on the site would find it funny. Deciding what evryone else would find humorous is arrogant and could be described as elitist. Dude.

CF bias? OK, how's this then...

It appears CP is giving away free tickets too. That's pretty stupid. They're having record days, it's safe to assume pass sales are sweet given the value, and they want to give stuff away on top of that? For what purpose?

Given that we've seen this all over the chain, I get the strong impression that this is coming from the top, and if that's the case, it just reinforces my belief that it's time for leadership change. At the top.

And seriously, if you don't like how I moderate, stop coming here. I'm tired of Geauga Lake jabs in every thread. It grows tiresome.

I wonder if 2008 passes really are selling well. You talk about the great deal, and it is a great deal, but the extra incentive for buying early is pretty minimal. On a Platinum Pass it is $10 and a Jacket that you may or may not get (KI is not getting jackets until October 28, so many people will need to make a trip in the spring to get their jacket).

I think this deal is not about getting more people into CF parks this fall. It is convincing more of those record crowds to get a pass now instead of waiting until the spring to possibly buy a pass. *** Edited 10/19/2007 8:41:34 PM UTC by Johde***

But that makes no difference to the bottom line whether they get the pass now or later, because it's still counted as next year's revenue. You can't even process a pass at CP yet.
Friday, October 19, 2007 8:43 PM
It does help the bottom line if the money is in the bank and as a result the need to borrow during the winter months is lowered. That is called cash flow.

Does any one else thing that a day at Holday World, Kennywood or Knoebels can be more enjoyable than one at Cedar Point? I mean, I love CP's coasters and rides, but its just not what I call a "nice" day. The ride experiences themselves, for the 90 seconds to 2 mins that they last, are excellent, but the day as a whole just doesnt leave me feeling like I was able to just get away from the hustle and bustle of reality...it makes me feel like there was MORE hustle and bustle. At CP, everything has to be so planned. You gotta get up early and go to the park. You gotta worry about ERTs and what coaster to ride first or which side of the park you have to start on and then you have to really rush around to get everything but, problem is, thousands of other people have the same idea. At the traditional parks, nothing requires much planning. You can stroll into Kennywood at noon and get everything in. You can take a slow walk from the Twister to Phoenix and enjoy the trees and maybe even stop off for something to eat at Knoebel's and NOT have to worry constantly about lines or if you'll get everything in, for example. My point is, while CPs ride are incredible, and the park really is great, I enjoy myself so much more at those afore mentioned parks.

You see what you want to see. I've waited an hour plus for rides at Kennywood. I've walked on nearly every ride at CP as well.

And what does that have to do with giving away tickets with season passes?
