Some Costco locations in the Midwest sell Cedar Point tickets. We contacted 19 Costco locations in Ohio (where Cedar Point is located) and Michigan to confirm the availability of Cedar Point tickets. Every Ohio location we contacted said that it sells Cedar Point tickets. However, only one Costco store in Michigan (the Haggerty Rd. location in Livonia) reported ever selling Cedar Point tickets.
Costco locations that sell Cedar Point tickets offer packages of two single-day tickets, plus a parking pass, for about $100. For comparison, individual daily tickets from Cedar Point’s website range from $45.99 (pre-season) to $73 each, and parking is $20 per car. Purchasing two tickets and a parking pass at Costco results in savings of anywhere from about $12 to $66. Costco doesn’t offer any additional discounts on tickets for senior citizens, students, or veterans.
Customer service representatives at Costco mentioned that Cedar Point also offers an annual Gold Pass exclusively on its website. The Gold Pass allows a single individual unlimited visits and free parking throughout the year for $129. If you are local to Cedar Point and plan to visit frequently, purchasing a Gold Pass directly from the park might be worthwhile for you.
Where available, the selling season for Cedar Point tickets usually starts around April and runs through August at Costco. Accounts on exactly when Costco stores receive the tickets varied; some locations get them as early as March, while others receive them as late as June, customer service representatives said. You may want to call your local Costco before visiting to verify that tickets are available.
