CoasterMania! 2018 at Cedar Point Event Information

The first Friday of June means it’s time for CoasterMania! at Cedar Point. It’s an annual gathering of ultimate roller coaster enthusiasts to get exclusive ride time on the popular rides at Cedar Point!

You don’t want to miss this year’s event, as there will be ERT on a lot of rides:

  • Steel Vengeance
  • Maverick
  • Skyhawk
  • Wilderness Run
  • Gemini
  • Magnum XL-200
  • Top Thrill Dragster
  • Millennium Force
  • Valravn
  • Raptor
  • GateKeeper
  • Rougarou
  • Blue Streak

The event admission policies and prices are as follows:

  1. You must have an event ticket and a valid form of park admission
  2. You must be part of a registered coaster club to attend this event (see the official event information page)
  3. You must bring your printed event ticket, a valid form of admission, and your coaster club card/proof you are in the club
  4. You will NOT be allowed to attend the event if you do not have all of these

$35: Event Ticket Only

$80: Event Ticket & One Day Admission

CoasterMania! is offering a very significant discount for hotels on the Cedar Point property.


The prices below are for a standard room with 2 queen beds.

Hotel Breakers

Thursday, May 31st: $199

Friday, June 1st: $209

Express Hotel

Thursday, May 31st: $69

Friday, June 1st: $129

Lighthouse Point

Thursday, May 31st: Cottage $139, Cabin $149

Friday, June 1st: Cottage $149, Cabin $159

Select Promotional in the discounts section and enter MANIA and click enter.

A limited amount of rooms are available. I recommend even if you live near the park, unless you live around 20-30 minutes away, that you stay on the property.

ERT will not end until 12:00 a.m. so you will be tired after an entire day of roller coasters. Another persuasion on why you should stay on the property, you can just go back to the hotel during the middle of the day.

The event will include:

  • CoasterMania! Cruise

You will get to go around the peninsula on Lake Erie which will provide unforgeable photo and video opportunities.

  • CoasterMania! Q&A

You will get an exclusive opportunity to talk to park officials personally and ask questions to the group.

  • CoasterMania! Photo Contest & Film Festival

You will have the opportunity to submit a photo to be judged for a contest as well as a video. You will win a 2019 Platinum Pass for winning any of these!

With the purchase of your event ticket, you will receive:

  1. Exclusive access to hotel discounts for the night before and night of the event
  2. An event lanyard and credentials to access the CoasterMania! cruise at your designated time and your assigned lunch session
  3. An event T-Shirt
  4. An exclusive CoasterMania! 2018 pin that will only be available by attending the event

I am very excited for the event! I hope to see a lot of you there! The ERT will be amazing if it isn’t a mess like last year.

  1. Is there any way possible to get a Coastermania T-shirt (women’s large)? My daughter had hers cut off while at the hospital.
