Waldameer Park has free admission & free parking as well.  A combination pass to both the waterworld and the park is just $16.50.  Not a bad price at all for what you get at the park.  If they get their new CCI woodie, it will be an even better deal!

Don't forget, though, that most parks only offer a Pay One Price/Ride All Day equivalent. At Conneaut, you still pay per ride if you take the "free admission".

Now, that isn't to say that Conneaut isn't a GREAT deal, because it is. Even the "ride all day" option, is really inexpensive.

On one of my two trips to CLP last season, I discovered that if you just want to ride and not slide, you only need to pay HALF of what the price is. So, if I'm correct in my thinking, if I go on a Wednesday, I'll only have to pay around $4.50 for a ride pass? If that's the case, then you'll see me at Conneaut Lake during the weekdays..

I'm guessing if they did build a CCI they'd raise prices to try and get their Return on Investment.

Lakemont Park is a pretty good deal as well. Free Parking. $7.95 for a ride all day which includes the waterpark and Leap the Dips.

...and speaking of Conneaut Lake, their Tempest picture looks an awful lot like a Trabant, and the Toboggan picture sure looks like Lakemont Park!

i went to lakemont about four years ago and it was $3.95 ! what a bargain with short to no lines on all the rides. a special bonus is when you ride the skyliner, you see three kids in each car,no seat dividers.

Oaks Park in Portland,Oregon is only $9.75 for a 5 hour wristband.I think they dropped the one coaster ride per wristband,so you can ride the coaster as much as you want.Looping Thunder must have finally paid for itself.Also,individual ride tickets are $1.50 each.I usually buy 4 tickets as I only ride the coaster here.After 4 rides,I'm done with this park.

Yeah, Millrace, Lakemont is a real bargain.  I went last Father's Day and got in for free so it was only $7.95 for both my son and I.
My favorite small park bargain is HW.  ACE members get a 50% admission discount all year.  That puts admission at only $14 and includes free drinks, parking and sunscreen, a great waterpark and a couple of coasters you may have heard of.

Canobie Lake Park is $22 for the 2002 season i think but you can always get $3 off at mcdonalds and stuff so $19 for this beutiful park is also a great deal, if you think about it, they have so many AWSOME flat rides and a great log flume, nice waterslide, the boston Tea Party "the wettest ride in New England" and of course the Yankee CannonBall, My favorite woodie!!! and thats after riding the Riverside Cyclone.

Out of the coasters i've ridden here is what I rank them overall:(ive been to canobie lake and SFNE)
1. S:RoS 2. Yankee Cannonball 3. Riverside Cyclone 4. Canobie
Corkscrew 5. Thunderbolt 6. Galaxy 7. Mind Eraser 8. Dragon coaster 9. poison ivy's tangl

When your talking $4.50 for a ride pass then I think we have a winner on probably the least expensive.

Wild Adventures in southern Georgia i think has a 7.00 admition fee. This looks like an ok park. Their main attraction is the Cheeta, a CCI woodie. The also have a SLC and a Boomerang, a few flat rides, and some kiddy koasters(That would be a good name for a coaster).

On the flip side, I find Knoebel's to be on the expensive side.
