I have 2 Free admissions to any Paramount Park to be used in the 2006 season. I got these at an ACE event earlier this year prior to the Cedar Fair buyout of the Paramount Parks. I know from contacting the local ACE rep a while ago that I won't be able to use the passes at the Regional ACE event at Kings Dominion Fall Thrill Fest on October 22nd.
My question is this. Will I be able to use them this weekend since they are now owned by Cedar Fair? Someone I don't really know and who doesn't work at any park told me they heard I wouldn't be able too. I considered contacting the park but thought that I may just get the run-around. I considered just showing up with the passes and if they said I couldn't use them I could create a stink (which I'd rather not have to do). But, if I end up having to pay anyway I'd like to get the discounted 3 Day Advanced Online Tickets.
Everything I kept hearing all year was that ticket sales and season passes would not be affected until next year. In that respect I think the Passes should be honored. If they tell me they are now Cedar Fair and can't honor the passes, then I think they should allow me to get free admission with my Cedar Point Season Pass.
Any advice or insight on this matter would be appretiated.

I was the winner last year of the 10 free Winterfest tickets to PKI. Well when I found out I won the contest I had already paid for Winterfest tickets. So when I went to redeem I had a choice of picking 10 tickets to PKI anytime during 2006. Well I have a season pass, so I really had no use for them. I have brought alot of people with me to the park with these tickets, even after the Cedar Fair sale, and we have had no problems using these tickets.
I don't see where you would have a problem either. As long as they are not only good on certain days. But still contact PKD and find out.

Is that the same Susie Storey that was the PR rep for SFGAm a few years back?

I just used mine at PKI two weeks ago for the start of Fearfest. Had a great visit and no problems whatsoever getting in. Plus, how can one go wrong with 5 straight rides on the Beast without leaving the train?

I've done that. It's wrong on so many levels.

Well, I e-mailed the park Tuesday morning and I still havn't heard back from them. It's too late to but the discounted advanced tickets, so I guess I'll just try using them and see what happens.

In case anyone was wondering, I never heard from the park. So I decided to just go and take my chances. I got in with no problem. :)

Great I knew you shouldn't have had a problem. I used my 9th Free PKI ticket today for a friend, and he had no problems as usual.
