Guess what is happening this weekend.....? You are definitely going to want to get a weekend getaway going to celebrate the opening of Cedar Point Amusement Park! Not only is this the place with the most roller coasters in the WORLD, they've been voted the “Best Amusement Park in the World”!!!!
Saturday ONLY, guests will even receive a complimentary Cedar Point VIP jacket at the main entrance (upon exit, while supplies last). I've got myself one of these and it is perfect for riding the coasters on a chilly day or during the evening hours!
Check out the Top 8 list of NEW things to see and do at Cedar Point this summer.
Billed as “combining the best of a roller coaster and a flat ride in one,” Pipe Scream will spin riders along 302 feet of track, reaching a maximum height of 43 feet and at speeds topping 40 mph!
Lake Erie Eagles
Guests on Lake Erie Eagles will sit in one of eight ride carriages that are suspended from arms located more than 28 feet above the ground. As the ride begins its cycle, the carriages will swing outward simulating the sensation of flight. A paddle on the carriages will allow guests to alter their flight experience from mild to wild!
Chickie’s and Pete’s
Known for their legendary Crabfries, this popular restaurant will also feature signature Philly Cheese Steaks and Lisa’s Blonde Lobster Pie. Chickie’s and Pete’s was recently named as one of the “Ten Best Sports Bars” in the country by USA Today.
Early-risers will delight in the addition of a full-service Starbucks (in the former Donut Time). From fresh baked goods to your favorite coffee drinks, the barista's at Cedar Point’s Starbucks are here to help you get your day off on the right foot.
Camp Snoopy Enhancements
Camp Snoopy is celebrating its 15th anniversary at Cedar Point this summer with the addition of two relocated kid-favorite rides – Woodstock’s Airmail (formerly Frog Hopper) and Wilderness Run (formerly Jr. Gemini).
Lighthouse Point Cabins
52 new deluxe cabins will be added to Lighthouse Point this summer. These new overnight options can accommodate up to 10 people and will feature two full bathrooms, four flat panel televisions, a dorm-size refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, outdoor charcoal grill and picnic table. (Reservations for the new cabins can be made immediately and room nights will be available beginning May 23.)
Luminosity: Ignite the Night – 2014 Edition
This high-energy show promises to be better than ever in 2014 with an all-new lineup of music, dancing and a dazzling display of pyrotechnics! “Luminosity,” amplified by North Coast Container and fueled by Marathon is performed nightly (except Tuesdays), May 30 – August 17.
Later this summer, Cedar Point will take screaming to new heights when it opens its new SlingShot ride. Riders on SlingShot will be secured in an open-air two-person capsule before being launched nearly 360 feet into the sky at speeds of up to 62 mph! SlingShot will be located near the Gemini roller coaster and will be an extra charge amusement ride.
PLUS, the park will be introducing new food options including:
Auntie Anne’s and Cinnabon in Challenge Park
Coca-Cola Freestyle and Yogurt Plus locations along the Gemini Midway
With new live shows like “Rockin’ Country” in the Red Garter Saloon, “Lusty Lil’s Revue” in the Palace Theatre and “Snoopy Unleashed” in the Good Time Theatre!!
