Cedar Point announces return of early entry for 2021: See which rides will be available based on the season pass you have

Platinum passholders will have access to as many as 24 attractions. Gold passholders will have the opportunity to experience up to 19 rides.

SANDUSKY, Ohio — Editor's note: Video in the player above features a front-seat ride on Cedar Point's Steel Vengeance roller coaster.

Attention, Cedar Point season passholders! Early entry is back at the park for the 2021 season – but there are some big differences based on which pass you have.

Platinum passholders, Cedar Point’s most expensive season pass, are given access to the park and up to 24 rides (including seven roller coasters) for one hour before the general public. The same benefit is given to guests staying at a Cedar Point Resort property.

Gold passholders, however, are granted early entry 30 minutes before the general public with 19 ride options, including three roller coasters. So what rides are available during early entry? Explore the list below...

“Cedar Point Gold and Platinum Passholders should have their physical card (or their digital card loaded onto our Cedar Point mobile app) handy at all times – you’ll need to show it for access to select rides and areas in the park,” Cedar Point’s Tony Clark explains. “If you’re staying at a Cedar Point Resorts property, you’ll need to pick up your Early Entry pass at the front desk before you head to the park. If you’re already a Platinum Passholder, using your Platinum Pass is fine.”

Every person in your group must have one of these passes in order to access the early entry attractions.
