That's very cool to have passes for military personnel. I haven't been there since umm, well, the 60's! I don't have any idea how much my parents paid, but now I've a grandchild on the way. Lord knows how much it'll cost then!
So in the mid-1960s, price to Cedar Point was something like $3.65 for kids, over 2x minimum wage; Disneyland is about 15 times minimum wage now and Cedar Point $46 (6x minimum wage) for adults and $20 (3x) for kids and seniors. Disproportionately expensive, both parks, imo. I suppose season passes rope people in?
