Cedar Point in Ohio is celebrating 150 years in operation with a summer packed with special events. Visitors to the theme park can experience a new ride, as well as night parades and parties. They will also have the chance to win a “Ticket of a Lifetime.”

The summer events’ season will kick-off with the Frontier Festival, which celebrates hope, health and harvest. The festival will run on the weekends of May 14 to 16 May 21 to 23, and then daily from May 28 until June 13, 2021.

During the festival, the park’s Frontier Town will be transformed into a Wild West bonanza with interactive games, live music and street entertainers.

The Frontier Festival food and drinks menu will be centred on the theme of cheery harvest, with some mouth-water cherry-themed dishes and drinks available for guests to sample.

Jason McClure, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point, said: “The entire team is eager to celebrate the park’s postponed 150th anniversary with new entertainment, new dining options, commemorative merchandise, a great new family ride, and more. Safety is always our top priority. In the current environment, our team will continue to carry out our mission of not only safety but the very reason we’ve been here for more than 150 years – to make people happy.”
