      The Easy Pay Plan is a monthly payment plan that spreads the Cedar Point Season Pass payments over 5 months after a one-time fee.

      The Easy Pay Plan works by charging an initial one-time fee on the day of purchase, and from that point on there's a fixed monthly cost every month, for the next 5 months.

      1. Select the Cedar Point Season Pass You'd Like to Purchase
      2. Input Your Billing Information
      3. Upload a Picture of Yourself (Or You Can Choose to Take it at the Park)
      4. Choose Whether or Not You'd Like to Purchase Add-On's
      5. Review the Payment Schedule and Total Costs
      6. Sign Off On the Season Pass Agreement Terms
      7. Check out

        How to Purchase a Cedar Point Season Pass

        You can purchase your Season Pass directly from the Cedar Point site, the Cedar Point appor in person at the ticket booth of the park.

        Renewing Cedar Point Season Pass Holders will receive a slight discount, on average ranging from $5-$25 off from the regular pass price.

        When Should I Get a Season Pass?

        If you're planning on visiting Cedar Point or Cedar Point Shores at least 2 times in a season, a Gold Pass is worth considering, as it quickly pays for itself in only 2 visits.

        When Should I Not Get a Season Pass?

        If you're only planning on visiting the park once for the entire season, it most likely will not be worth the investment, as Season Passes make more sense for guests who will visit the park several times in a season.
