Save with Cedar Point season pass

Cedar Point opens this weekend, and my friend Will is already planning several trips to the Ohio amusement park throughout the summer and fall.

He not only wants to ride Cedar Point’s new rollercoaster, the Gatekeeper, located near the entrance of the park, but he plans on returning to enjoy the water park and HalloWeekends.

Will could save $10 each time he goes by buying his tickets online in advance. But Cedar Point and its sister park, Michigan Adventure near Muskegon, also offer seasonal passes that can be purchased on a payment plan, and the savings is even greater.

A Cedar Point season pass is $117 or six payments of $19.50. That’s a huge discount over daily admission, which is $54.99 at the gate. The pass includes unlimited visits to the park and to HalloWeekends as well.

Even better, a Cedar Fair Platinum Pass includes admission to Michigan Adventure and other Cedar Fair amusement and other water parks. It costs $180 or six payments of $30. Renewing any of the passes each year means another discount.  

Pass prices go up May 27 and the payment plan will no longer be available after that date.

Cedar Point opens for the season Saturday, May 11.
