Cedar Point Question

Monday, February 24, 2003 6:15 PM
I am planning on visiting Cedar Point for 3 straight days this summer. What is the cheapest way for me to get into the park all three days. Anyone from the CP area who knows a lot about what to buy. I have checked the website and it left me with more questions then answers. Any help would be much appreciated. THANKS

If you are going for 3 days you might as well buy a season pass.

How does the Joe Cool club work, is that just like fast pass at SF, or is it just for certain days? certain rides?

I'm not quite sure what you mean....cheapest way to get into the park? I suppsoe that would be hopping the fence, but I would reccomend tickets.

If you're asking what the cheapest way to get tickets is, you might want a two-day pass (I don't think they have 3 day apsses) plus an extra day. Most area hotels and stuff offer coupons.

If I was going for three days, I'd just get a season pass. Might be cheaper!

Joe cool will get you in a half hour early with 2 coasters open. Resort guests get that too.

well, when i went there last summer i went for the ride & slide which covers 2 days to both parks for $60, but i think the price has gone up this year. on that third day though you'd probably just buy a normal one day pass. i would go straight for the season pass though. that would be spending $100 i believe compared to about $110.

Does the Joe Cool Club give you shorter waits for rides like the fast pass at SF?

I dont know where you live but guessing by your footer you live in Chicago or around there. Go to another Cedarfair park and buy a season pass there, not only will you get another day at a park but a season pass there is usually only a little over the price of a two day pass at Cedar Point.

No, the Joe Cool Club only gets you into the park one half hour early for MF and TTD and you get discounts on food and souviniers.

Do you think that will be just as crowded as normal?

Probably not because only Joe Cool members and resort guests get in early.

What me and wife are looking at, is one of CP Resorts package deals. The one we are looking at is this...

Two nights accommodations Two one-day Cedar Point tickets, Two Starlight Cedar Point tickets, $30 Cedar Point Munch Money, 10% Discount Card at some restaraunts, Four Soak City Coupons (buy-one-get-one-free), and Four Challenge Park tickets.

This one is $490, and is at Hotel Breakers

there is one at Breakers Express, that is a bit diffrent.

Two nights accommodations, Twone-day Cedar Point Tickets, 8 Express Breakfast coupons, Parking Voucher, Two Starlight Cedar Point Tickets, 10% Discount at some restaurants, and 4 Soak City Coupons (buy-one, get one free).

and it is $320, both pretty good deals. If you buy a Season pass and stay in some crap hotel around you'll probally pay close to the same, without the extra perks. Since I live in Tennesee buying a season pass is pointless for me, so a resort package works well.

Plus the ERT without the $15 for Joe Cool.

You dial 1-800-BEST FUN, and read the guide. You can also slip the attendant a $20 at the Courtyard Gates by Ocean Motion.

Buy a season pass. Then you could go again if you like it.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think one of the new benefits this year is the addition of evening ERT on select rides.

The CP Resorts brochure that I got in the mail only mentions morning ERT, not evening. Hard to say for sure, but it looks as though the evening will be JCC only.

Evening is for JCC only. The CP hotel package deals include Soak City, whereas the regular Season Pass (not combo) does not. So if you plan to go into Soak City, I would go for a package deal.

On the other hand, the passes are good for a year at any Cedar Fair park. So if you think you may visit one of the other parks, the pass is a better bet.

Cheapest way to get in?

Wait until the park opens. Walk back to the Sandcastle Hotel and stand near the bottom of Magnum's pretzle turnaround. Wait for Maggie's train to come by and hop on it! Hold on tight until you arrive back at the station and exit (casually). Presto! You got inside the park for FREE! lol

while ure at it, tie a downhill tightrope between TTD and Mill Force and ride down it on a unicycle. Then, jump off of the top of Mill Force into the lake below for a spectacular exit of the park.

But remember to get youre hand stamped on the way out....im sure the bugs will take care of that for you.... ;)
