Today, I saw a coupon for a Cedar Point day ticket. The price? At a discount of $8, $34.95. It helps to get some relative prices to understand just how good a deal this is. General admission at the park we often compare to CP, Six Flags Magic Mountain is $59.99 (that’s almost twice as much, by the way). We have conceded scientifically (OK, it wasn’t actually very good) that CP=SFMM on the coaster quality front. Therefore, whichever park is less expensive must be the better park. Now it really isn’t fair to compare these parks like they are actually wholly competing with each other because there is a large geographical divide (they’re on opposite ends of the country), and therefore look for very different markets. While I have not been to both parks, I can say that from trip reports and park reviews that Ive read, that CP offers a much more satisfactory experience than SFMM. In the end though, it is really only your opinion for you to decide.
