MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Identity verification network provider ID.me announced today a partnership with Cedar Fair Entertainment Company (NYSE: FUN), a leader in regional amusement parks, water parks and active entertainment. The new partnership will allow military community members to purchase specially priced tickets at 11 of the Cedar Fair properties.
“We are excited to be working with ID.me to extend our exclusive savings to the deserving military community. This will complement the savings programs we offer on bases and at the front gate at many of our parks, but now with the added convenience of purchasing from home,” said Scott Tanner, Corporate Vice President, Sales at Cedar Fair Entertainment Company.
Military service members, veterans and their families can instantly verify their military status through ID.me and enjoy a savings at Cedar Fair parks of up to 40 percent for a one-day ticket at the daily ticket prices.
"Physical ID cards aren't portable to digital channels so members of special groups like veterans and students haven't been able to access their exclusive price-points online," said Blake Hall, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of ID.me. “With this new partnership, military community members can now use ID.me’s group verification technology to securely submit and prove their identity and military status online and claim their Cedar Fair savings.”
The participating parks include: Carowinds, Cedar Point and Soak City, Kings Dominion, Valleyfair, Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun, California’s Great America, Knott’s Berry Farm and Soak City, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom, and Kings Island. Military savings will last through the summer for all participating parks with some stretching into the fall. For specific savings, pricing and time frame please check each park’s individual website – all of which can be found on http://www.CedarFair.com.
ID.me is transforming the way people verify their identity online.

The Washington, D.C.-based company allows partners direct access to rich user data and diverse customer bases, yet still leaves users in control of what information to share.
