Cedar Point pass question?

Friday, October 24, 2003 11:14 AM
I'm going to the Po!nt tomorrow and was wondering if I buy a season pass for 2004 if it will get me into the park the day I get the pass like a Six Flags pass does. Thanx

I don't think so. I haven't heard any deals like that for CP. Sorry.

You cannot buy a Six Flags pass and get in the park the same day either.

Yes, you can actually. If you buy a 2004 Six Flags pass right now, you can use it for the rest of this park. (The same goes for the Paramount parks.)

No, a CP 2004 pass is only good for the 2004 season. It won't help you this weekend at all.

But aren't all Cedar Fair passes ANNUAL passes meaning they expire 1 year from the day you buy them? I know that is how the Knott's annual passes work. If that is the case at CP as well, then you can buy them and process them the same day and they'll expire 1 year from that day.

Knott's isn't seasonal.

...and is the only one that is not seasonal. All other Cedar Fair passes are good from May 1st through April 30th of the following year.

A 2004 Season Pass for Six Flags cannot be used in any form (pass, parking stub, processing entry) for the 2003 season.

No, but you should check online to see if any coupons are currently being offered on their website.

I would think 04 passes would only be valid next season,

Cedar Point's 2004 passes are valid from Jan. 2004 through April 2005.

If you process your Cedar Point pass you can use it... but only after it's processed. I processed mine in Feb. of this year and used it at Knott's in March.

The CP pass is a better deal, if you ask me. It's valid for *longer* than a year. ;)

Are you sure about that, John? Because the Horse's Mouth says:

All Passes issued at seasonal parks are valid from May 1 of the year of issuance to April 30 of the following year.

I am sure, Brian. Knott's let me use my 2003 pass twice during the 2nd week of March. According to CP's Park Ops when I asked this spring (who handles the processing in the off-season) my pass would be valid in March (of 2003) at Knott's.

The fact that I got into Knott's twice with the pass before it was "valid" is proof enough for me.

Excellent! My son (who just turned three) will have his first CP pass next year, but we are planning a family trip to LA for the Mouse House and Knott's in late February of this year. The rest of us still have our 2003 CP passes, but if I could avoid buying him a ticket to Knott's, that would be great, as every little bit helps.

The only hitch is actually getting the pass processed in time...I'll have to call the park to see what we could do.

I would assume it works only because once its processed you're in the computer system. They probably only say May 1st through April 30th of the next year because they don't really expect all the people to go to Knott's. Plus they probably don't want people thinking the park opens prior to May (which it doesn't)

Brian, if you couldn't get your pass processed at CP you could always call Knott's to see if they will do it. If not, just show up and try to get it process and see if they even notice. I've processed my SFKK pass at SFoG this year and they didn't say a thing. SFMM almost processed mine until they noticed it wasn't from their park and they just gave me a one day pass to get in until I got it processed elsewhere.

Because CF parks don't share an admissions computer network processing a CP pass at Knott's would be out of the question. Process it at Knott's and see if they'll even notice? The pass certificates say "Cedar Point" on them and have photos of CP rides on them. I don't think the Knott's admissions people are that dense.

Call the park and they'll be able to help you out. Remember, they start processing passes by mail (for renewals) after the 1st of the year.

As mentioned, there isn't a shared pass system---to get in to another CF property, your pass number is recorded by hand, and you are given a comp ticket. So, even if the pass isn't "active" at CP yet, they may just let it slide as a matter of policy.

Plus, I definitely don't want my son to have a Knott's pass, since then we'd have to sign him in at Guest Relations each time we go to Cedar Point---a much more frequent occurance.

I will call 'em up---if they can help me out with an early processing visit, it would be a good excuse to spend a night at Great Bear Lodge in the dead of winter.
