Cedar Fair Parks Will Extend 2020 Season Passes through 2021

April 14, 2020, 5:05 PM · Ten days after Knott's Berry Farm announced that it would extend its 2020 annual passes into 2021, the other parks in the Cedar Fair chain have followed.

Cedar Point, Canada's Wonderland, Kings Island and the other parks in the chain announced on their social media accounts that their Season Passes, plus add-ons, will be extended throughout the 2021 season, in addition to remaining valid for 2020 when the parks reopen.

For passholders using the monthly payment plan, payments will have to be current in order to receive the extension, but the company said that it has suspended collection of monthly payments as of April 8 and will not resume them until the parks open again.

"Once billing resumes, you will be billed the normal monthly amount for however many months remain to finish paying your full balance due," the parks said.

Auto-renewals will not be in effect for the 2021 season, as a result of this extension.

Knott's Berry Farm is the only year-round park in the Cedar Fair chain, so it was open for daily operation when parks across the country began closing due to the pandemic. The rest of the Cedar Fair parks had announced that they were targeting a mid-May reopening, but the parks are not now committing to any specific opening date.

In fact, given recent statements from the Governor of California, it is unlikely that Knott's Berry Farm and California's Great America will be opening then, as California leadership sees a negligible chance of approving mass gatherings this summer.

Now I wish I'd gotten Platinum, with All-Season Fast Lane Plus and Meal Deal!

You can buy a 2020 now, or later this year, and it, plus most add-on's will be valid for both the 2020 and 2021 seasons. Great deal for those who haven't bought a 2020 SP yet.

I figured this would be the case after Knott's announced it, but glad to see confirmation since my pass is actually through Canada's Wonderland this year. I would have renewed anyway (2021 is tentatively planned to be a big Cedar Fair year for me), but I'm definitely looking forward to a free bonus year at the chain.
