I am going to be heading to Cedar Point Aug 26-Sept 1.
Do they typically at some point give a reduced season pass price for the rest of the season or will it be $109.99 until it closes for the season?
Any info would help.....thanks......

As far as I know that's the rate for the remainder of the season. They just raised regular one day tickets by $1, so I doubt they would lower the price of season passes. I purchased a pass late in the 2005 season (due to moving from Texas to Ohio), and I paid the full price. 2008 passes won't go on sale until this season is over. But you'll have the advantage of renewing your pass online for next year without having to go to the park to get your picture taken.

Wow, you're right. When did that happen? They just quietly snuck a dollar right back onto the gate - across the board even.

It's a conspiracy. Either that, or they're building a fund to plant some trees ;)
Sorry, couldn't resist...

Ahh, helps if I look around before I question.
Happened yesterday. (thanks Pointbuzz :) )

It was posted on Pointbuzz
yesterday, and has had quite a bit of discussion over there.
You caught it before I finished my post.

Hehe, just beat you. :)
It's an interesting move. They were at $44.95 in 2005. Dropped to $39.95 in 2006. Went back up to $41.95 in 2007 and bumped that to $42.95 yesterday.
How much you wanna bet they do at least $44.95 for 2008?

Anyone think this is a response to the recent disney / universal price hikes?

How long until the CF is in financial trouble posts start flowing?
They're already out there on PointBuzz! Gotta love the statements of the uninformed.
Someone may have said this already, but a slight increase in prices could (emphasis on could) indicate that they are actually doing better than expected and are willing to take the microscopically small attendance hit to add an extra $20k+ to the gate.

How long until the Jimmy crack corn and I don't care comments start coming. Oh wait. ;)

From my point of view a CF pass is still the way to go, so I don't......care. ;)

Well last year parking went up $1 right before Halloweekends, so its not like CF hasnt done this before. Halloween has become a gold mine in Sandusky and has for the past few years been some of the highest grossing Saturdays of the year for them, why not try to make an extra buck?

I think someone from PointBuzz nailed it on the head with this price increase when they said CP's 3rd quarter attendance has either met or exceeded expectations, and so why not tack on squeezing out some more money when you *don't* need to get more customers into the park....

Just thought I'd throw this in, as it's sort of on topic.
Canada's Wonderland is putting it's 2008 season passes on sale on Aug 27, 2007. If you buy a 2008 pass, you get the rest of 2007 free. It is possible that other CF parks will do the same. You might want to check things out closer to the date of your visit.
You might even be able to pick up a 2008 MaxxPass, although I don't know where you're located.
By the way, CW is timing the 2008 pass sale with the annoucement date of the 2008 coaster. Good marketing!

They ended that four-for-$130 promotion, as well.
