Cedar Point, one of the world's best roller coaster parks, has finally introduced a fast pass system.
Lines for the best coasters can normally take 1-2 hours and this will let you bypass those lines.  You can ride unlimited times on all eligible rides in the fast lane.

If you're just going for 1 day it's probably worth it as it will allow you to try everything out.  Cedar Point is 1 hour west of CLE, so just add the 6,000 AMEX/9,000 BA for the RT flight for you NYC/ORD folks to the cost of admission :)

Fast Lane Buyup fee:
1 guest: $55
2 guests: $50pp
3 guests: $45pp
4 guests: $40pp
5 guests: $30pp (Contact CP to buy this option and note that it's cheaper to buy for 5 people than for 4!)

Limited passes are sold per day and you can reserve in advance.

Eligible rides:
-Blue Streak
-Cadillac Cars
-Corkscrew
-Dodgem
-Gemini
-Giant Wheel
-Magnum XL-200
-Maverick
-maXair
-Mean Streak
-Millennium Force
-Power Tower
-Raptor
-Shoot the Rapids
-Top Thrill Dragster
-WindSeeker

The bolded rides typically have waits up to 2 hours.

Regular admission is $49, but there are various discounts to drop the price down to the $30-$40 range.
Wow, massive markups this year  :(

Fastpass excluding Gatekeeper and Top Thrill Dragster:
1 guest: $65
2 guests: $60pp
3 guests: $55pp
4+ guests: $50pp


Including Gatekeeper and Top Thrill Dragster:
1 guest: $80
2 guests: $75pp
3 guests: $70pp
4+ guests: $65pp

Gate admission is now $54.99, though there's an online special of $44.99 for any day this season and $34.99 for May.

Wowza.

So even with 4+ people, each one would have to fork over $110+ to get the full shebang.

You wish.
Though $34.99 May admission is pretty good.

AA still has Avios flights LGA-CLE Sunday morning-Tuesday morning.
Can catch open weekend of gatekeeper and an Indians-Yankees traditional BOGO doubleheader on Monday.

Somehow I think I'm talking to the wall with these posts :D

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
