Is it 10 bucks less than last year?

I believe it is more. I paid 135 for my combo pass. Season passes are 85 if you buy now.
see their website for details

It was $79 for a CP pass last year at this time, they raised it by $6 to $85 this year.

This new coaster had better be worth my extra $6!

I still don't understand why you Ohioans don't make the trek to Missouri and buy your's here, it's less expensive (cheapest in the chain) and our park is open longer.

Because we get Joe Cool Club membership and benefits, like morning and evening ERT, and because we can also purchase the parking pass for half price. The parking passes and Joe Cool bennies are park specific, and since CP is my "home" park, I'd prefer to have the parking pass at the park I visit the most.

And is it really worth the trip to Western MO to save $20 on a season pass. Anywho, the difference is made up in the season parking pass which is a steal at $30 for next year vs. the normal $60 or what will probably be $9 a visit next year.

Sure, that makes sense. Spend $50 (or more) in gas to save $20 on a season pass.

However, for those in the Chicago area, it's a good trip to K.C. to do WoF, get a season pass, and hit the casinos. :)

Not to mention the inconvenience of going to guest relations every time you go to the park for admission.

It's still a good deal to me. It's less than a night at most hotels (I don't stay at cheap hotels for more than one night) and I get more use out of it. It's also at a price point that kids who just need a place to hang out (or cause trouble) can't afford it, so CP doesn't turn into a babysitting park.

I, personally, thought going through Guest relations was quite handy... I was able to bypass the long line at the turnstyles and enter directly through the Guest Relations gate.

Anyway... The last time I went to CP with my WoF pass, I was able to go through the regular "season pass" turnstyle. The pass wouldn't scan - they had to write down the pass number.

I plan on getting a 2003 CP pass as well as SF and PKI pass.

Its easy to be objective to my home park(S). Good bad and ugly its all there. Small or big. coporate or privately owned its all the same to me.

The last time I went to CP with a friend with a WoF pass, they admitted the friend in without going to GR. All they did is write his SP number on a sheet and allowed him in. Perhaps they changed things a bit or he just got lucky?

Does it matter though in the context of this thread? I mean who is going to drive all that way and incur expense to save $20?

I was doing the math, and I found out that if you have a season pass and you go three times, you've already gotten more than your share of it. 3 times, that's not hard!!

At CP they do this all the time as you descried. They have that pad with other parks name on it, circle the name on the pad, then write down the number. The only other thing is they have to go through the season pass gate.

I think this makes more sense then how they did it at Donrey. Instead of going to GR and filling out the same information then get a ticket, you just go right in. Since the number of guest who use Season Passes from other parks is minimal, it's easy to count how many were written down and add that to the attendance numbers.

Regardless, I'm still not going to spend $40 in gas and drive to MO to save $20 on my Season Pass.

Just an off topic question out of curiosity... But how frequently do you all visit CP?

Well, I have already purchased my 2003 CP season pass, joe cool, and parking.

How often do I go? Well, I will be making my sixth trip this season in just a few hours. (a seventh is sure to come) I have also visited MiA twice. So, from my estimation I have saved about $225 from regular priced admission so far this year.

It is worth it for me.

And yes, I also have a Six Flags pass also.

Yes there are good coasters in Missouri

1) Wildfire

2) New GCI woodie at Celebration City

3) Mamba

and there is more...

Anyways back to the thread, I paid only $38 last year for my pass during pre-sales. I'm sure that was a little more than the $20 savings that has been quoted in this thread *cough* Putz *cough* Yes you may have to pay to get here, but at least you would be saving money and you could go to our park a lot earlier than you could go to CP to get it processed.

Also I have never had to go to the GR to get into any of the other CFLP parks, they swipe my card and in I go. I guess WOF passes are more like SF passes (work at anypark in chain's computer system).

Eh Swoosh, can you also purchase Cedar Point Parking passes you can get with a CP pass for $30 instead the regular $60? Can that pass also be used for morning and evening ERT as well as discounts at CP? Get the point? ;)
