Have you tried Expedia, what City are you coming from? There are sometimes weekend specials, but I don't think you wanna go to CP on the weekend. There really are no cheap airfares unless you check a month or two in advance.
Go through a hub, do not take a direct flight. For example. If on American or United, go through Chicago. If on Delta, go through Cincinnati. Cleveland is a hub, and hubs have higher fares. Another option is to go to Akron or Toledo and drive.
I'm coming from DFW (Dallas/Fort Worth) and we may go to two Indians games then drive to CP after the game on Sunday, spend the rest of the day at CP, all of Monday (my birthday Aug 60, and fly back in the evening of Tuesday.

Take Delta and go through Cinci to Toledo or Cleveland. We got tix last year from San Diego flying in on Monday and our on Thursday for $450. That's w/out a Saturday Stayover. FOr your days, going out on a SUnday and Retuening Tuesday it's at $513.

My advice is to go to expedia.com to check out fares, then to priceline to book your flights, rental cars, and hotel stays. There's always a catch, and here's theirs: You'd better get it right the first time, they won't allow you to change a thing. The only thing that is the least bit flexible is the rental cars (and only with regard to pick-up/drop-off times). You can get away MUCH cheaper, but it's important to book early, and be SURE you're asking for exactly what you want. ------------- rollergator - intent on improving the "guest experience" - coming soon to a park near you
My advice is that you get a job with the airlines so you can fly free anywhere any time. Thats what parents do and it rules. ;) ------------- "This time I think ... I think it's ... it's going to work!" - Dr.Bruce Banner

Yes, if for no other reason that they've been banging the advertising here very very hard! See, frequency is effective for branding regardless of click-through ratio.
Anyway, there are some things you need to consider. One if the time in advance you buy your tickets. Another is that you're staying over a Saturday. Then there's the time of year you're doing it. These all factor in.

If I was in desperate need to get out to one of those parks, I would fly, no matter what the cost. Dont use priceline because they sometimes give out 2 of the same ticket...ive seen it happen. But then money is no object to me, so if you have a budjet, go for the lowest fare.
