Crowd Expectations

CP Guide has used information from past visits to produce our 2011 crowd expectations, however, we do not guarantee that the information will be accurate.  The expectations are based solely on our opinions and personal experiences.  There are many different reasons that could make the park more or less crowded than expected.

Please view the 2011 Cedar Point Schedule for official information and hours.

Please note that Fridays are considered the weekend.

Crowds are measured in three different categories.

Light :: Moderate :: Heavy
