Season Pass Question

Monday, May 17, 2004 9:41 PM
Hey, I have a season pass to Valleyfair! and I'm making a trip out to Cedar Point in about a month. So when you get to CP gates, do they just swipe your pass, or do you have to go get a ticket? Thanks.

Go to guest services. They will give you a ticket.

Why on God's green earth hasn't CF gotten with the times about out of state season passes?

You shouldn't have to go get a separate ticket to gain access if you have a season pass from the same company.

Barcoding is your friend. :)

I'm surprised they haven't. I was happy when SF made the switch a year or 2 ago. Up until 02 or so I always had to get a comp ticket st SFstl of SFGAm with my SFA pass!

Actually at Cedar Point, when you go to Guest Services, they just write down your pass number/name/park and buzz you in through the side door - no tickets involved. Valleyfair! was the same way when we were there a couple years ago. At Knott's, you need to get a ticket to go through the regular gates.

This system along with their season pass processing system really needs to be upgraded in all their parks. I saw the line for processing at Dorney for the last two weekends looked to be about an hour and a half long.

I wish CF follow SF way doing season passes renewal thru the internet and mail the pass.I waited in line 45 minutes just get the pass saturday and was running short of time so only 1 Wild Thing ride.I already have my SF pass couple months ago. I wish SF do away the $11.00 processing fee.

With our Dorney passes at CP it was exactly as geneticfreak describes.

However at Knott's we had to go to guest services and get a comp ticket for entry.

Cedar Fair is not the most technologically-advanced company in the world. Heck, they still use handwritten slips to charge things to your resorts room at Cedar Point. I have to believe that they spend more in a single season on labor processing all those little bits of paper than they would spend on a computerized billing system that would last 10 years.

Up until last year, it was "go to guest services and get a comp ticket". As I discovered this weekend, though, it's now just "scan the barcode at the gate, off you go". At least, that's how it was at Carowinds.

Peabody, are you sure you had to get a comp ticket as recently as '02? I could have sworn that back when Six Flags Ohio was rebranded, my resulting pass just worked at the gates of all the other Six Flags parks.

I've got a VF season pass, and these are the procedures I've seen, and when I encountered them:

CP - They write it down at the season pass gate. Fairly easy. (2001)

Dorney - Go to Guest Services, get a pass (2002)

WoF - Go to Guest Services, get a pass (after being told at Guest Services "no, you don't need to do that", then being told by the season pass gate "No, you need a pass")

I used my Dorney pass the last 2 years at CP and when I got to the gate all they did was right down my pass # and let me in.

....and what an INCREDIBLE pain in the arse THAT was....I spent about 30 minutes in line (with ONE person behind the counter) to get my comp ticket....ARGH!

I never had to get a comp ticket. I went 2 summers in a row for a week and went to the park almost every day. I got in the season pass line and they just wrote my number and park down on a clip board.

Info on the PKD site seems to imply that you'll still need to head to Guest Services at that park...unless the site hasn't been updated.

In '02 my SF season pass definitely worked with just a swipe at numerous parks. Had to get a comp ticket at Paramount parks though.

Last year i used my WOF Pass and they just swiped it... try the regular season pass line first. you shouldn't have a problem. if it doesn't work they will direct you where to go *** Edited 5/19/2004 4:13:33 AM UTC by ZambeziZinger***

You should check the websites for some of the Cedar Fair Parks. They actually do renew season passes online/mail/phone. There is a small processing and handeling fee however ($5 for VF this spring).
