Cedar Point Season Pass: Everything You Need to Know

In this page we'll go over what a Cedar Point Season Pass is, the differences between the various season passes, what perks they offer, how you can pay for it, and even the upgrades that you can make.

    What is a Season Pass

    A Cedar Point Season Pass allows a pass holder to visit the park an unlimited number of times throughout the 'season' in a year, on all days that are open to the public.

    These passes offer benefits including unlimited visits to Cedar Point, free parking, Bring a Friend discount tickets and access to special events.

    You'll notice that it is called a 'Season Pass' rather than an 'Annual Pass' and that's because Cedar Point is not open year-round.

    Types of Passes & Benefits

    There are three types of Season Passes at Cedar Point:

    1. Summer Pass
    2. Gold Pass
    3. Platinum Pass

      Pass Differences

      The Summer Pass is designed for visitors whose main priority is being able to visit the park consistently.

      The Gold Pass only allows you access to Cedar Point, while the Platinum Pass allows you access to ALL Cedar Fair parks for the season.

      Pricing-wise, the Platinum pass the most expensive pass.

      Summer Pass

      This allows you to have the flexibility to split up your payment over several months, rather than paying it all at once.

      You'll have an initial payment, and for the next 11 months, you'll pay a fixed amount every month.

      How it Works

      1. Select which season pass you want to purchase
      2. Input your billing information
      3. Upload a picture of yourself for your season pass or opt to take a picture at the park
      4. Check out

      Paying in Full

      If you're not interested in splitting up the payments, you're also able to pay for your season pass all at once.

      How to Get My Season Pass

      You can purchase your season pass directly from the Cedar Point site.

      When Should I Get a Season Pass

      If you're planning on visiting the park at least 2 times in a season, a season pass may be a good option for you.

      You'll receive countless perks, and save plenty of money along the way.

      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.

      Season passes normally make sense for guests that will visit the park several times in a season.

      Season Pass Upgrades
