Since I have a season pass this year, these prices won't bother me, but before I had the pass, I never got my tickets at Meijer. I was able to go to my local city community center and they sell tickets to lots of theme parks and events. Check at your community centers with the recreation department. While Meijer was selling tickets last year for about $36, I was buying my tickets for $29. They seem to have much better deals. Since I live in Southeast Michigan, about 1 hour and 45 minutes away, I'm sure people that live closer have community centers that do the same thing. It's a much better deal. Just looking to give you all a heads up. Maybe the tickets aren't a better deal this year, but they have been in the past. Never hurts to check it out.

I was in my local AAA/Michigan office today. They did not have tickets available yet, but did have prices. Fundays were $32.50, Junior (and maybe Senior?) Fundays were $21 even, and Ride&Slide's were $60.
The getaway guide is $10 off a funday admission. They also have buy one Stralight Admission get one free.
Stupid question: My husband and I are going to CP Monday May 12th. That means we could buy a weekday pass from Meijer, right? That way we could avoid the ticket line at CP? (we have $10 off funday admission coupons, so if not we can still get the same price at CP, but would love to avoid the lines) *** This post was edited by GoldEyes 4/28/2003 6:14:20 PM ***
To answer your question GoldEyes, Yes, if you buy the ticket from Meijer or any other place that sells them besides CP, then you can skip the ticket line and go right to main entrance. It's kind of nice to already have your ticket it your hand. You get in much faster.

Thanks Raptor_Rider! I figured the Weekday Pass is good from opening day. (well first weekday) Since we will be going on a Monday, that will be great to get ahead of time! Will be spending enough time in lines for rides! :)
No, I am talking about a Meijer in Columbus. If you are wondering about a Meijer in Cleveland though, you can goto their website and look at the online ads to see if they are advertising CP tickets. :)
I plan to buy my tickets there, however I am not familiar with the store brand or its policies. I'm traveling from outside the U.S., so I need to know if there are any special requirements to shop at Meijer, like a membership fee or something. Can I just walk in and buy them?
I am traveling with my wife and infant child (besides another couple with a child of their own) and I would like to avoid the ticketing line at the very least. I am sure there will be plenty of other lines waiting for us... :)
