Crazy, I know that our entertainment book had a $10 off coupon for platinum passes. They would not combine it with the $140 deal last year though.

I must be the last one left that thinks unlimited visits and parking at all the CF parks for $150 is a good deal.

It is a good deal, but you have to estimate your park visits accurately. A gold pass is only $90. That basically means you have to plan to spend 2+ days at other parks to get the platinum value. I rarely exceed 3 days elsewhere, so I've started getting a gold pass.

Definitely.

But in the big scheme of season passes, the CF Platinum Pass seems like one of the best deals going.

Before Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom closed they were offering season passes for 30 bucks (with admission to all six flags locations). Not to deture from the CF Platinum Pass, I'm with you on that one Gonch, it's a great deal. I probably spend 150.00 each year just in parking fee's.

For once I agree with you Gonch :)

$150 is a great deal but $140 is even better. When you are buying for a family that $10 per person adds up. So far this year I have been to Carowind, Kings Dominion and Kings Island twice each.

There's a reason they're closed. ;)

Seriously though, SF pass pricing is one of the last things they still do terribly wrong.

I suppose. Not enough for me personally to think twice about though. Obviously less is better, but $10 per head around here isn't changing anyone's anything in any measureable way.

I dunno. $600 for the family felt like a good buy...and I won't use them nearly as much as someone like you.

For me the number is four visits. At that point it's 'close enough' for me. Anything else is gravy.

Cedar Fair's season pass pricing is certainly a great value, and you actually get a nice plastic card as opposed to the wonderfully craptastic paper ticket season passes you get down here in Florida. I appreciate things that are a little more durable, especially when it has a tendency to rain a lot.

Not the best deal imo.

I got my six flags pass for $50, plus $45 more for parking. Still under $100. It cost me $200 total for our(3) passes at six flags. Six flags has a lot more parks included with the pass than what cedar fair has.

For me to get passes for my family(3) at cedar fair, is going to cost me over $400. Not a very good deal.

Just looking at the raw numbers without any other consideration, that is true. However, Six Flags has always had a problem with severely under-valuing their season passes. They price it like a local promotion that's available for everyone (think the SeaWorld Fun Card, only non-Florida residents can get it as well), which I think waters down the whole thing. Of course, this is more of a business discussion than a customer-oriented discussion. I never said they (CF passes) were the "best deal," either, just that they are a great value. The best deal? I'd have to go with a Universal or Disney AP. But again, I'm straying from the topic. Sorry, I'll leave the Midwest discussions before I mention the warm weather. ;)
