Win 2017 Haunt Tickets for Cedar Point, Kings Island & More

2017 Coke Cedar Fair Haunt Promotion

Once upon a time, drinking Coca-Cola products, savings the codes from packages, and redeeming them on was a valuable proposition. If guests played their codes right, they could redeem for free Cedar Fair tickets during the summer months, and for a while they offered from December promotions for discounted gift cards and prizes. The good ole days!

When the My Coke Rewards program ended earlier in 2017, the programs was replaced by something we were told would be much better, but we all knew better, that there was no better!

Now the “rewards” program resides over on, and codes no longer qualify as points, but simply entries into the various promotions they offer. So far since rolling out, the program has offered little value across the board.

With a little shining glimmer of hope, the Coke Rewards program rolled out their fall Haunt promotion with Cedar Fair, offering pairs of tickets to a handful of parks for a few (200 pairs awarded) winners.

Visit the Coke Cedar Fair landing page and sign into your account. If your account qualifies for the promotion and you enter codes before September 18, 2017, you are entered to win a pair of tickets.

Couple items to note.

Maximum of 12 codes can be entered per account.

You must live within 125 miles of a Cedar Fair park. Participating parks are Cedar Point, Kings Island, Valleyfair, Dorney Park, Kings Dominion or Worlds of Fun.

E-Ticket valid any park operating day between 10/15/17 and 10/29/17.

Review: Kings Island Smokehouse Smoked Turkey

170812 Kings Island Smokehouse Turkey

One thing we really like about the new smokehouse concept at several of the Cedar Fair parks is the team is not afraid to experiment with limited time menu items. This gives the team a chance to try new techniques with various menu items and allows the guest to take advantage of the menu.

We were extremely excited to see Kings Island’s newest food venue, the Island Smokehouse, offering a limited time smoked turkey.

The meal included several thick slices of turkey and a choice of side. We opted for our favorite corn bread pudding and a side of the spicy BBQ sauce which is absolutely superb!

The turkey packed a nice, smokey flavor and retained it’s juiciness, which is the key to roasting any turkey. We were impressed with the smoked turkey and foresee it making a return later in the season, perhaps for Winterfest!

To note, on our previous visits, the corn bread pudding was simply amazing! However, this time it was really dry with some of the corn also not retaining their moisture. Something happened with the batch we had, as it was not ideal. We hope this gets checked as we have been seeing this as an issue since our initial review.

If you tried the smoked turkey this season, let us know what you thought below in the comments.
