Pack out in the Cedar Fair park

Recommended Posts

One has to wonder your age and years experience at parks?  As Indyguy pointed out they have had these crowds in October since the Paramount Days.  One could even argue that KI is down a little this year based on parking lot observations - years past parking would extend into the grass area south of Soak City by Western Row and they would have employees park elsewhere and open up employee lot to guests.  I think that has only happened once this year.

Cedar Point has routinely had the crowds in October.  Old rumor was Cedar Point made more money in October than Kings Island did all year... probably not true but makes the point that CP gets busy...

In many years Cedar Point would have a soft capacity close where they would let people in if a parking spot could be found.  As silver pointed out, the gold pass sale this year at CP certainly tipped it past the capacity point they had to officially make notices, but they were certainly expecting it...in years past it wasn't uncommon to sit on the causeway for over an hour just to get to the parking toll and then drive around the lot for 30min just to find an open spot - and not a spot close just a spot to park to quit driving around the lot....

Do a search of this forum and you will find historical posts from long time park visitors of both parks talking about how busy these parks get in October...

Rumor is October 2017 was a record attendance for KI...

It's like that at almost all larger parks this time of year. Great Adventure frequently has to have people park in their separate gate water park parking lot because the main lot and over flow lot fill up during Fright Fest. Yesterday Hersheypark had 3 hour waits for a few rides and that's with the park having no haunted houses, mazes or scare zones.
