Details so far:
We've gone to Cedar Point for years and years, so park and coaster tips we're probably good on.
Things I'd like to know:
I'll try to think of others. Thanks guys!! *hugs*

From Scott SandersAwww..that's pretty cool. Congrats! I don't know the answers to any of your questions, but just wanted to comment. Wonder how many wedding requests they get. Probably not too many.

From Derek PotterCongrats guys. I think that marketing would eat the whole wedding deal up. A wedding party on a roller coaster is something that the news would pick up, especially in that area. I would call the park and try to get through to them by phone.

A group rate single day ticket is $32.99. Not a bad price. Keep in mind that group rates require 15 tickets minimum. Some other offerings they have for a group are the unlimited drink wristband for 7 bucks or the food vouchers. They also offer catered meals for a price. Your hotel package tickets end up costing about the same price once it's broken down, but depending on the hotel you get a couple of other little perks along with the ticket such as mini golf tickets or food coupons.
The big perk of the VIP tour is that you get to cut in line. You get free drinks and good seats to shows, but there really isn't much else to it. By September, half of the shows will probably be closed for the year, and I'm not sure that you'll be waiting a long time in line at the end of the season.
Have fun guys.
From James KoehlBest Wishes!! Maybe they'll let you tie tin cans and shoes to the back of one of the Cadillac Cars and put a sign on the back of it saying "Just Married"!!

Just thought some CP fans would like to see some pics from the aforementioned wedding, which happened this past weekend.
And a little plug for us: there is a Facebook Connect comments section just under the blog post - for every 20 comments there, we get a free 11x14 print from our Photographer. :) I hope we can get one! :D
From Michelle CulpepperI loved your wedding pictures!! My husband and I are thinking about recreating your wedding for our vow renewal and his 40th birthday. Got any tips or advice on the hotels, VIP passes, photography or places to take pictures? Did you market your wedding with any of the blogs, tv stations, etc? Was it hard to get CP to let you have your wedding there? Its just going to be he and I, the officiant, photographer and possibly a videographer. Do you think a news team in the area would be interested in the story? Sorry for all the questions....I'm just really excited!!
