Discounts on Cedar Point Tickets

By

Cedar Point, located just outside of Sandusky about 1 1/2 hours' drive from downtown Cleveland, is consistently rated as one of America's favorite amusement parks. The 364-acre park is home to 17 roller coasters, a white sand beach, a classic merry-go-round, four children's areas and a plethora of shops, food stands and exciting rides.

Tickets are available from Cedar Point--online, by mail, by phone or in person at the attraction's onsite ticket office (open seasonally). However, several discounts are available, both from the park itself and from other area retailers.

Online Discount

Senior/Junior Discounts

For 2013, the senior/junior price is $34.99 per person, compared to the regular admission price of $59.99 per person. This is an ideal offer for grandparents and grandchildren.
