Saw this on the Cedar Point website this evening. The main banner on the front page is saying that with purchase, you get a free Cedar Point Map. I'm not sure if it shows Maverick on there or not, but I would think that it would, unless they are trying to unload old ones.
Moosh: That's the map that usually costs a buck or two. It has some kind of thicker laminate on it, and is suitable for putting on a wall. I used to buy one every year, and have some interesting ones from the 80's. Kind of forgot about it the last few years.
I got one when I got my Maverick T-shirt. No Maverick on the map. But I like it anyway. I might hang it on my wall, or just keep it with my SFA maps. And I love the shirt. *** Edited 1/24/2007 9:05:03 AM UTC by ilovethewildone***
Purchase price on CP maps last year was $0.92, I believe. They are terrific maps. You get so much more detail than the smaller ones in the brochures. The best thing about collecting them year by year is the record of every tiny change the park made. I have them going back to 1999, and I wish I'd started earlier.
And keep in mind, those 2006 maps will never be printed again. They're officially collectibles.
They GAVE those to you at the parking booths, where they collect your $15. Those SAME maps were for sale at all the parks for $5 apiece.
Being the ubergeek I am, I tried to buy the entire set of maps at SFEG, but NO ONE working there could find a set to sell (I think the set was like, 40 bucks, but the park was discounting EVERYTHING...another strong indication they knew the SF flags were coming down, LOL). They LOOKED, too, but not even the managers could locate one for me.
edit: Gonch beat me to the first part of my post...he's got fast hands...TYPING! ;)
