If you live close to an amusement park and plan on going more than once, you might consider getting a season pass. A season pass will give you unlimited visits to the park for just one price. Cedar Point even offers payment plans where you can pay off your season pass for only $20 a month. Both Cedar Point and Six Flags also offer a meal season pass. If you have a meal pass you get a lunch and dinner at every visit. This will be big savings if you plan to go often. Cedar Point also offers an All Day Dining Pass where you can eat an entree and side as often as every 90 minutes at select restaurants for $29.99. If you eat a lot or love amusement park food, this could potentially save a lot of money.
One last savings tip is to buy only small inexpensive souvenirs, or skip them all together. Remember your trip to the park by taking lots of photos and making memories. With a little planning, and smart strategies, it is possible to go to an amusement park and save money at the same time.
