SANDUSKY, OH (WOIO) –
It’s almost here! This weekend marks the “unofficial” start of summer as Cedar Point, the “Best Amusement Park in the World,” opens its gates for the 2014 season on Saturday, May 10. The park has a wide variety of new rides, shows and attractions all designed to help guests have their best day of the summer.
The following is a Top 8 list of NEW things to see and do at Cedar Point this summer.
1. Pipe Scream
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!
2. 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!
3. 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.
