A year ago from this upcoming weekend was one of the busiest days of the year for Cedar Point. Columbus day weekend saw thousands of people all trying to make there way across the causeway in a line that lasted hours, only to find that there were no parking spots available. Not only did they fill all the parking lots on the point, but people were being bused in from locations of the point to accommodate the large crowds. Then at the end of the night people waited up to 4 hours to exit the parking lot and start there journey home.
This year Cedar Point’s Bryan Edwards says they are ready if the crowds come back in large amounts this upcoming weekend. According to Edwards the park has made several changes to the parking lot and causeway to help with the flow of traffic.
Don’t forget Mantis is now open Fridays, and its last day is the 19th!
The original plans for Cedar Point’s Mantis roller coaster was to close is down on October 19th as they start its transition to the new floorless coaster Rougarou, but those plans have changed. Cedar Point officials say the stand-up coaster will remain open for the remainder of HalloWeekends. The coaster has already started its Rougarou transformation. Some sections of the coaster have been painted.
EDIT: According to Cedar Points Facebook Page the coaster will still close on the 19th. It will however be open on Fridays before the 19th.
EDIT: The News station removed the story and Cedar Point told us the coaster will close on the 19th
Cedar Point announces a new show, “Midnight Syndicate LIVE! Legacy of Shadows”, coming to Halloweekends in the “Ghoul Time Theater” a Halloween play on words for the Good Time Theater. The show will run Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays now through November 1st. Tony Clark Director of Communications sent us this press release.
“Guests visiting Cedar Point for HalloWeekends already know about the park’s scream-inducing haunted houses and outdoor fright zones. But this year, guests are screaming just a little louder thanks to the new “Midnight Syndicate LIVE! Legacy of Shadows” show in the Ghoul Time Theatre.
Ohio’s own Edward Douglas and Gavin Goszka, of Midnight Syndicate, have been delighting fans worldwide with their Halloween music albums for almost two decades. Performing in front of a live audience for the first time ever, they have created a whole new legion of fans thanks to their multimedia horror concert at HalloWeekends. Known for producing “gothic horror fantasy soundtracks for the imagination,” these Halloween music maestros blend instrumental music, sound effects, eerie videos and on-stage adventures, taking audiences on a spell-binding journey that mesmerizes and features an ending that is both unexpected and terrifying.
“My family and I came to Cedar Point often when I was growing up, so having the opportunity to be a part of HalloWeekends has been a thrill for me personally,” said Ed Douglas. “I feel our show complements the other incredible live entertainment at HalloWeekends by offering something a little different. If you enjoy haunted houses and the spookier side of Halloween, then the Midnight Syndicate LIVE! show is perfect for you!”
Cedar Point was actually one of the first theme parks to begin using Midnight Syndicate music for atmosphere, both in the park and in its haunted houses, when the band formed back in 1998.
Guests with no fear of the dark can experience this outstanding show at Cedar Point’s Ghoul Time Theatre on Friday nights (7:30, 9 and 10:30 p.m.), Saturdays (6, 7:30, 9 and 10:30 p.m.) and Sundays (2, 4 and 6 p.m.) now through Saturday, Nov. 1.
