Josh M's avatar So... correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that only a 3 dollar cut on one-day tickets from last season? Looks like they are maximizing profit there.

I'd love to be in their marketing department right now.

One park for the price of two! What a Surprise!

$44.95 is not a bad price for a season pass, and some of the perks aren't bad. Sure, you won't be able to get into CP or KI with the pass, but if you're only intention is to go to the waterpark a few times, I think it's a good value, and how about that jacket?

I guess my only fear for anyone who was a supporter of the rides is that your questions have been answered--there are no mention of any themepark rides at all. In fact at a total size of 11 acres, I'd say that leaves no room for anything else but waterslides.

Actually if you look at water parks in the area (Soak City, The Beach, Noah's Ark) they all have about the same admission price so its actually a very fair rate.

It just looks like a ripoff because they were giving away the gate last year...

LostKause's avatar $23.95 sound's expensive compared to what they used to offer for about the same price. But it is an amazing waterpark with great potential, so I wish them luck.

Jeff's avatar I think you need to read between the lines a bit... a whole lot of people are going to buy passes because, "For 11 bucks more, we can come back all summer." Only they'll probably come back once if at all, so the cost per visit is $22.50. Makes sense to me.

Now they just need to sell the crap out of it.

You mean the way they didn't with Geauga Lake pre-neutering??

eightdotthree's avatar Compared to what the park was last year, this seems expensive, but compared to other water parks its cheap or competitive. Sandcastle's season passes are $59 and the park is not nearly as nice as GL.

I wanted to go but I wasn't sure if and when the park was open thanks to the lack of advertising. There sure wasn't a shortage of Cedar Point and Kings Island marketing crap thrust in my face.

kpjb's avatar ^ You have an internet connection, right?

$23.95 is steep for just the waterpark compared to $26.95 for the whole shebang, but we have to keep in mind how underpriced $26.95 was for that park in the first place. (And I mean real-world underpriced, not Gonchar-world. ;) ) They can't exactly come out charging 11 bucks.

More importantly, I think, is what they'll do with the in-park pricing. Will it still be $4 Pepsis, or will they be more in line with what a typical attraction of this sort would charge?

Hey! A lot of you guys sound more and more like me every day whether you want to admit it or not. :)

Does the platinum pass cover admission to WWK?

The price for admission seems somewhat reasonable, but how many stand alone waterparks charge for parking?

Noah's Ark and Schlitterbahn don't charge to park your car and their waterparks have more to offer.

^^ Yes it does. Buy it at Cedar Point though because then you get Point Perks.

How late was the waterpark open in previous seasons? I'm wondering how much time you get for that $15.95 twilight rate.

Also, I'm wondering about the proposed schedule, with weekends only until the second week of June, plus closed the last week of August. Soak City, Dorney WWK, and even Waldameer offer more days at either the beginning, end, or both. Is the weather or school schedule that different in that section of Ohio?

Jeff's avatar Soak City caters to the resorts guests primarily, so there are different rules there. But yeah, there's no point in being open during the week until the first week of June here, as the kids are mostly still in school.
