I live in Solon, so the Geauga Lake Maxx pass pricing sounds great!
I never use Joe Cool (too early for me), so I had originally planned on getting a PKI Maxx pass. However, when I saw that they dropped the Gold Pass perks I started leaning toward buying at CP instead. Now that I see the price difference, I'm going to go with GL as long as Cedar Point will allow us to buy a parking pass for their lot too. (even if it is a separate cost.)
It might be a calendar month, but it's something like 6 or 7 actual operating days. Of which I honestly might make the trip once if I were a passholder.
In this case the $100 is worth more than that one early-season day at PKI.
I guess my only question to those that know is if it'd be possible to score the cheaper GL pass and then nab a parking pass at PKI (being the park I'd visit most) or do you have to be a PKI passholder to get the PKI parking pass?
Even still, with PKI's parking at $11 I'd have to visit the park 10 times before I ended up with a worse deal. I'm not sure I see myself hitting PKI 10 times in one season. Realistically, I'd put it at half of that.
Last night I print screened the website that showed $100.95. When I called this morning to order they are charging the $125. I asked why the website said a different, lesser, price. She didn't have any knowledge of it. She asked if I could fax the print screens to her. I said sure could, but I don't have them with me at the moment as I'm at work. I am faxing the print screens to her tomorrow. I shall see what they say.
I'm sure most of you think I'm being cheap to go through this for a $25 discount, but oh well! If I can save $25 on my pass I am saving $25 on my pass!
Being that I will be at Cedar Point later next month for the Cbuzz event I will probably go ahead and get my MaxxPass then. I could drive to either Carowinds or PKD in the same amount of time but I am NOT going to drive out of my way just for that reason. ;)
I don't buy parking passes since I, well, don't visit the Ohio parks enough to justify it (maybe they should have a nationwide Cedar Fair parking pass? How sweet would THAT be?)
Yeah, stop dreaming, Tina. ;)
In any event the MaxxPass is a freakin' STEAL for those planning on visiting a lot of the Cedar Fair parks next year.
Hell, it's a steal even if you just hit a few. Looking ahead to 2007, I'd expect to hit PKI maybe 4 or 5 times, a stop at CP to check out Maverick and probably a stop at GL on the way to or from my parents house sometime next summer.
125/6 = 20.83 a visit.
Works for me! :)
(and if I happen to luck into visits to any other CF parks, it gets even better)
