Cedar Point bucks trend, cuts admission prices
Written by Robert Niles
Cedar Point might not be adding a new coaster for 2006, but Cedar Fair's flagship park is making a strong move to boost attendance.Tweet
The Sandusky, Ohio park has announced that it will cut its regular adult admission price by five dollars, to $39.95. In addition, the park's everyday price for kids under 48 inches and seniors 62 and over will be just $9.95. Cedar Point also is offering an additional five dollars off adult tickets purchased online.
Cedar Point's aggressive kids' price continues a strategy initiated at Cedar Fair's Knott's Berry Farm, in Buena Park, Calif. Knott's slashed its everyday kids price to $14.95 in an effort to lure families from nearby Disneyland. The move helped boost Knott's attendance, making the park a favorite for school and camp groups throughout Southern California.
Cedar Point's across-the-board price cut follows industry-wide price increases, led by Disney, Universal, Busch and, in a change from previous years, Six Flags, which under the new ownership of Dan Snyder's Red Zone LLC, has upped one-day ticket prices to Disney-levels in some markets.
