Screamscape is reporting (which means I need some confirmation) that Knott's is lowering the ticket price for 3-11 year olds from $33 to $12.95.
This is a significant decrease and, while not completely unprecedented, it seems a big move for a Cedar Fair park.
I wonder what the reasoning was for this and if it is something other Cedar Fair parks are going to consider.

It can be confirmed that the price is right by going to http://www.knotts.com/park/guest/ticket.shtml
. There is also a special where if you bring a canned good to benefit The Orange County Food Bank you can also get in for just $12.95 through 2/1/04!
Go to http://www.knotts.com/hot/index.asp
for more information.

Wow...guess we'll have to swing by before February.
That's cool that they are encouraging families to come.

IIRC, that's about the street price for kids most of the year anyway---the competition in that neck of the woods is thick enough that there is almost always some local fast-food-coupon deal for a similar kids price discount.
With the recent/future camp snoopy additions plus this new pricing structure, Knott's seems to be really pushing on Disney's core market: families with young kids.
Selfishly, this works great for us; my son turned three after last season ended, so he does not have a 2003 Cedar Point season pass, and we won't be able to process his 2004 pass before we head out there for our spring break trip.
