Cedar Point Resorts Letter

Monday, December 31, 2001 8:19 AM
My family a couple of days ago got a letter from cedar point regarding wicked twister...and one thing it pointed out is that "resort guests will get to get in the park a half hour early to experience wicked twister and millennium force"  Do you think this is a good thing? I think it will either shorten lines cause the resort people will get wicked twister and mf off their check list or else it will make lines worse from people already in line when you enter the park.

Sounds like the CP folks are very smart people.  Talk about your incentives if you stay at Breakers!  If I was trying to decide on staying on the mainland or venturing out to the peninsula for my overnight stay, I would choose the Breakers if I knew I could get in 1/2 hour earlier.  As far as the lines go, you can count on this...unless you're a fast OB, you aren't going to be at the front of the line for MF or WT, so you might as well get used to the fact that there is going to be a wait for those 2 rides anyways.  With WT coming in now, the line for MF should be a little lighter this year anywhos....and if it's not, then you can go and get all your riding on the remaining 66 or so rides in the park.  It's seems to be a win-win situation for all actually.

Hmmm... with attendance in hotels down (Due to the economy), this seems like yet another great way to get people staying overnight again.

I was at Breakers Express last year and I also got the letter about riding both Wicked Twister or Millennium Force.

This is a new thing, correct?

We've stayed at Sandcastle every year we've gone to Cedar Point - this just sounds like an added little bonus to make it even more worth the money.

Kind of a play on the added benefits you get from the Orlando parks for staying on property. Definitely a good thing!

Another thing it says is you can now get two day ride and slide pass- i think you have to be at soak city one day though and cedar point one day- you can't do them both in the two days.

VirginaReelfan, you're referring to Lighthouse Point, an upscale cabin complex built literally feet from Lake Erie. The cabins, new pool, and other amenities opened in May, 2001.

Sounds like they are somewhat incorporating the benefits of a Joe Cool pass into a days stay at the resort.

I doubt that was an issue there, with the exception of the last few bonus weekends. It's my understanding that Lighthouse Point was booked solid most of the season, and the hotels never had any shortage of cars.

I'm wondering if this is combined with the Joe Cool dates, which oddly enough have something like 70 ERT sessions this year. I certainly hope not, because a couple hundred rooms with two or more people (assuming the lot of them go) means the ERT won't be very "E."

Your right Jeff, Lighthouse was sold out most of the entire season, but resorts like Cedar Point did take a hit (later on in the season), and most likely will have a slower 2002 in terms of people staying over, considering people just aren't living their lives like they used to.

I think this offer shows that Cedar Point is anticipating fewer overnight guests, and in response, are offering this exclusive ride time to lure potential hotel patrons.

The other angle is that they might have increased room rates more than the traditional 3% and are trying to justify that with the early entry.

I always felt the resort guests should get some kind of perk for staying on property.  I think Disney has temporarily eliminated this perk though.
