I forget what the exact hours, but it is a discounted evening ticket for Cedar Point.


Its something like 6pm-closing time, and only costs like, $20 or something like that.

Might wanna look at their site for the exact numbers, but you get the idea.

"Valid after 5 p.m. when Cedar Point closes at 10 p.m. or later; valid after 4 p.m. when Cedar Point closes earlier than 10 p.m."

The simple answer: A ripoff.

Think about it. You can go to the park from 10am to 10pm for $44, for 12 hours worth of rides. So, that comes to an average of $3.66/hour.

Or enter the park at 5pm for $26, for 5 hours worth of rides. Translates to $5.20/hour. What a deal.

Tack on the parking fee, and you're really getting ripped (unless parking is less after 5pm as well. Regardless, still a rip).

I believe the point of the reduced price is to incite you to go to the park on a day you wouldnt, for example. You arrive in Sandusky at 4pm and plan on spending 1-2 days at the Point, you wouldnt think of blowing $44 to go to the park for 5 hours the day you arrive, but you are willing to put down $26.

Personally, I prefer Hershey's "Preview Pass" that lets you in for about 4 hours before the park closes for free (with the purchase of a one day ticket for the next operating day). *** Edited 7/1/2004 11:11:05 PM UTC by Touchdown***

Well I'll be there Tuesday night and will be purchasing a Starlight ticket and then spending the whole next day in the park. It's not bad when you don't have to pay for parking, or worry about money for that matter. Also for the next month it will be for six hours as the park closes at 11.

Please tell me you're not serious. Please?

So at $3.66 an hour than for a fair starlight ticket price you'd be looking at $18.30.

$8 makes it a total ripoff? Wow.

I suspect the Starlight is meant to entice resort guests into the park on their arrival night. You check in in the afternoon and you're options are sit in your room until the next day or pay full price to enter the park. The starlight is the fair alternative. This also makes parking a non-issue.

I doubt too many people stop by for just an evening visit that aren't local and frequent enough guests to have a season pass. Not too many casual guests driving up to the gates after 5 and planning on going back home at closing.

You see it as milking an extra $8 for that 5 hours, but I think the idea is that it saves resort guests $18 on their day of arrival.

That is exactly what I'm doing. Arriving at my hotel at around 4 and going to the park at 5. Plus it'll be a nice way to get familiar (if you haven't been before) with the layout for the next day. Not to mention now with that coupon it's only $13.00 a person which is approximately $2.17 an hour!

heres a cool thing to do if you have no discount:
Hang around by the ticket booths and see if someone needs to split a by one get one free ticket. it happened to me twice when i was there and it cost me like 13 bucks for starlight.

Anybody know what SFGADV charges for an evening ticket these days?
