WKYC, a local TV station out of Cleveland, reports that Cedar Point will raise adult ticket prices one dollar to $39. This hike follows a $5 raise last year, coinciding with the opening of Millennium Force.
Read the report from the Associated Press on the WKYC site.
Gee, another dollar, another year. Surprise surprise surprise. Somehow, my weekly paycheck doesn't coencide with this inflation process. I just hope they don't bump up their parking either. That's the biggest killer with not only Cedar Point, but most amusement parks!
I can semi-understand why they rose prices with MF being added (although $5 rise in one year is a lot) but the raise this year doesn't make much sense. The park isn't adding any new attractions within the actual park that are included with park admission.
You know, I was planning to go to the Point this year, too, with the family and all...I just don't know where I'm gonna scrounge up that extra four bucks...
Blink is right. This is a miniscule increase, not particularly outrageous, and CP is still an incredible park (no matter how much it costs to get in). We should be concentrating more on the rides than the prices...
------------- Six Flags Great Adventure season pass -- 10 and counting...
OMG!!! One dollar. I go along with blink, ill go no matter what. The ticket price isnt the killer though, the main thing in each park is the food and drinks. The other, as dawg byte said is the parking. Im going to visit maybe four to five times this year. The price will still be well worth the day.
I too find it funny to hear people bemoaning a $1 increase. While I like to think of myself as a thrifty person, Cedar Point is a great value, as most good parks are, especially for those living close enough to visit the park and not have to stay overnight.
People come from all over the country and the world to ride Cedar Point's multimillion dollar rollercoasters. They pay some pretty big bucks for travel and accomodations.
Since when is it bad for a park, or any busines for that matter, to maximize their profits. We are not talking about withholding drugs from the dying here. Everyone who enjoys Cedar Point will also want them to do well financially to keep the park prosperous.
