CP Hotels question

Sunday, March 28, 2004 11:04 AM
If you stay at one of the CP hotel properties, does that allow you to get into the park earlier?

Also, do all Cedar Fair season pass holders get in early as well, or just CP season pass holders?

I am considering staying at Hotel Breakers. Is it worth the extra money?

Hmm, you put this up just a little while ago. And it took me two minutes to answer your first two questions - use www.cedarpoint.com --> great website. Third question. None of the Cedar Point hotels are spectacular, and since you are staying at Cedar Point your room is kinda a place to sleep and thats it. Not worth the extra money.

Most cp hotels let you in early. You only get in the park early if you have a joe cool season pass. I believe breakers is worth the money but that is my opinion. If you are planning to stay a day were you do not go to the park it is worth it. If you need a place just to sleep try breakers express.

CP hotel guest get a pass at the front desk to get into the park at the same time as Joe Cool Club members. I agree that the hotels really arent worth the money. I usually stay at the Ho-Jo at the end of the causeway. Its alot cheaper, not all that bad, and still close to the point.

if you are staying from friday to sunday or even all week, i think breakers is worth it. the room i was in isn't all that (was in the old section) but for $105 a night, is was very convenient. i would suggest dropping a few more bucks on a nicer room if you want to, but i think it is a good deal. it gives you access to the beach and TGI Fridays, as well as a few shops inside the hotel. and a great photo op of TTD if you stand by challenge golf.

A room at Breakers in season costs $150 and up. Most rooms are northward of $200. If you are accustomed to staying in hotels that cost $200 and up, you will be shocked---SHOCKED, I tell you, at the condition and quality of the room, the hotel restaurant, and, well, everything else. It is in no way at the level of, say, a Hyatt Regency, a Westin, or even a Sheraton or decent Marriott.

On the other hand, most hotels that cost $200+ do not have a roller coaster outside the window, so, really, the quality of the sheets isn't the issue.

There are two reasons to stay on-point. One, if you have small kids they *must* take a mid-day break, and it's much more pleasant to be able to do so without getting into a car, especially if one of the adults wants to duck back into the park to do grown-up things during naptime. Two, if you feel like pampering yourself, it's just *nice* not to ever have to leave the magic that is Cedar Point.

They could start advertising the Breakers as the "Closest Hotel to Top Thrill Dragster". :)

There is also something to be said in this day and age about being able to park your car and not have to take it anywhere for the duration of your visit.

Like anything else, it has its premium qualities and premium anything comes at a price. What price are you willing to pay?

While we are on the subject of the Early Rider at CP,I was just wondering if this situation is normal.

Done it last year in October, stayed in the Radisson and got my Early Rider Pass and tickets, However when going to the park on a saturday and going through early rider line, I was not told to show my Early Rider Pass, I just showed them my normal park ticket and was allowed in with no questions asked. Its even more pointless when it says on the Pass you must show the pass to gain access and when a member of staff was saying to some of the crowd Have you Early Rider pass ready, still no one else said anything

So Seriously is this normal, Tryed it out on the sunday afterwards as well and only had my ticket ready, and they still let me in no questions asked.

Sounds pointless to me cause loads of people could get in for Early Rider easily without a pass. Not that I would risk it in the future If I ever revisited of course, but I think its silly.

Back to subject, The Radission is a nice hotel if you can get in there, I would recommend that hotel for a visit, and at the end of the year, they are having the indoor water park arnt they so would be worth checking out when open

I can't speak for the on-site properties, but for the money, I though Breakers Express was much nicer and cleaner than some of the other "budget" locations in town. There's a lot of dives in Sandusky.

I have a question that is kind of on topic. My friends and I are planning to do TTD first on our one day visit to CP in May. We want to enter the park through the Magnium entrance if allowed. Will the parking attendants let us park at the Gemini or Soak City lot if we are not staying at a CP resort hotel? If so, how early does that entrance open to normal park guests?

I haven't been back to CP ever sense my summer employment there in 2000. I think that the entrance to TTD is near where paddlewheel is and the bumper cars were. Am I right? It isn't across from Corkscrew's station, isn't it? I just want to be prepared because I am sort of the "tour guide" in our group.

Yes they do, they open at the same time other gates open (I even did this during Halloweekends last year) just make sure you are in the far left lane and it will be no problem, 5 senic minutes later you will be closer to TTD then any other enterance.

Breakers is very nice, its the only on site hotel where not only do you not have to take your car to get to the park, you also dont have to take a shuttle (two enterances, Beach and Magnum are within walking distance). Off site hotels are far away from the Point (at least 10 mins) and you have to pay parking and causeway toll everyday, staying on the island you dont pay for parking and you pay for the causeway once.

One adendum, dexter I forgot, ask the attendant so she gives you a card to let the police know where you are going.
