With opening day just a few weeks away, Cedar Point is now offering a new season pass option for $99 known as the Summer Pass.

This 2022 Summer Pass season ticket offers unlimited visits to Cedar Point with free parking through Labor Day on Sept. 5. The Summer Pass, however, does not include access to the Cedar Point Shores waterpark or discounts available through the park’s other season passes.

"The new Cedar Point Summer Pass allows us to provide an option for guests who are interested in visiting Cedar Point only," park spokesperson Tony Clark tells 3News.
