Is this the case for cedar fair parks? If so, we're in trouble as we won't be traveling to any of them until June 2020. Just want the passes for next summer, not planning on taking advantage of this year's access.

Also, does it matter which parks website I buy it through? I know six flags stl is a cheaper season pass than other six flags...

Thanks again for your feedback everybody! I'm in uncharted territory here.


Not sure about an activation deadline, but I can say that it doesn't matter which park you buy the Platinum pass through, you can activate it at any CF park.

So it doesn't matter price wise, looks like all parks are $197, but are all parks treated equally? I mean, if I were to buy it through worlds of fun, would all cedar point perks ( one hour early entry, etc) exist in the same way as though I purchased my platinum pass at cedar point? I ask this because purchasing through worlds of fun gets you a flash pass to use there before Oct 27 this year, and maybe I can drag the fam over there for a day this year.

Either way, gotta decide today. Looks like today is the deadline for these prices.

Oh my goodness, this keeps getting more and more confusing. I'm a high school teacher, so I'm trying to maximize the pennies I like to rub together, and now I'm realizing why people buy their platinum passes at Canada's wonderland. Those of you who do this, while you can purchase them online, can you process them in any cedar fair park? I'd be adding platinum dining and drinks, so the savings would be... sizable. I realize that this would negate any park specific perk (CW is offering a fast lane for each pass for one day in 2019... and that would be forfeited, and not realized anywhere else).

That conversion rate though....

Nope, don't worry about it. I bought a 2018 Kings Island Platinum Pass online and didn't activate it until August, and no trouble at all doing so.

Given that you apparently can buy anywhere, and activate anywhere, the question you have to ask yourself is whether getting the Free Fast Lane Plus later this year at Worlds of Fun is more important than saving money through the exchange rate at Canada's Wonderland. I am going to CW next month, so I bought there anyway, and used the EZ Pay plan to spread out payments. My initial up front cost for 4 passess, 1 Fun Pix, and 1 All Day Drink Plan, came out to $196 dollars. But of course, that is in Canadian. My actual cost, was only $147. So that's nearly a $50 savings. I can't imagine the exchange rate has changed much since yesterday, so that's the kind of discount you'd be looking at, purchasing at CW, and giving up the FL+ benefit. Just wanted to put that out there for you to tangibly see, since I just went through this.

The Platinum Pass perks, such as free parking and early entry, work at every park. I have a Canada’s Wonderland pass and have used it at Cedar Point and Kings Dominion so far this year.

Are we sure Paddlewheel Excursions is coming back? All I read was that it will be a new river ride.

It's not going to be the same ride. It will be a river ride of some sort and use the same route as Paddlewheel Excursions. That's what we mean when we say it's coming back.
