According to past attendance figures, Cedar Point recommends visiting on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
Generally, the months with the lowest attendance are May, June and September.
Check the weather. If it rains one day, the next clear day will usually see a rise in attendance.
Check Cedar Point’s operating schedule. Fewer hours of operation usually means lower crowd levels.
