Cedar Point Press Release

First Time Ever Open in November

SANDUSKY, Ohio, Oct. 28 -- There will be one last chance to scream this weekend when Cedar Point presents its final HalloWeekends of the season.

With Halloween on Friday, HalloWeekends, Cedar Point's fall family fright-fest, will be open for its eighth and final weekend, Friday, Oct. 31 and Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 1-2. It will be the first time the 139-year-old amusement park/resort has ever been open in November.

During HalloWeekends, guests can enjoy their favorite rides such as Maverick, Millennium Force, Skyhawk and Planet Spooky. Plus, there is plenty of Halloween fun and frights including five haunted outdoor attractions, three haunted houses, the all-new Magical House on Boo Hill, the Hay Bale Maze and live entertainment up and down the midway. The Monster Midway Invasion Celebration parade (4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays) is also a big hit with guests of all ages.

In addition to all the exciting rides and HalloWeekends' activities, there will also be some special ways to save money on all the fun this weekend and next year, too.

On Saturday, Nov. 1, the park will offer an All-You-Can-Eat Meal Deal that will include admission to Cedar Point's HalloWeekends and a ticket for a mouth-watering meal that will cure the hunger pangs in little tricksters and big goblins alike.

Served in the Coral Courtyard from 4-6:30 p.m. on Saturday only, the menu for this monster of a meal will include fried chicken, hot dogs, baked beans, potato chips, cookies, hot cider and assorted Pepsi beverages.

Pricing for the All-You-Can Eat Meal Deal is:

Adult Combo Ticket - $49.99

Senior Combo Ticket - $31.49 (valid for guests age 62 and older)

Junior Combo Ticket - $27.99 (valid for guests ages 3-61, under 48 inches tall)

Starlight Combo Ticket - $37.49 (valid for admission to Cedar Point after 5 p.m.)

These special meal deals can be purchased in advance online at or at the park. Space is limited.

This weekend will also be the last chance to get the best deal on a 2009 Cedar Point Season Pass or Cedar Fair Platinum Pass. New Passholders who purchase a 2009 Cedar Point Season Pass or Platinum Pass at the park this weekend will save $10 and receive a free admission ticket to HalloWeekends on the day of purchase. Current Passholders will save up to $20 on the purchase of either pass. (These offers will end Sunday, Nov. 2.) A Platinum Pass is valid for unlimited admission and free parking at Cedar Fair's 12 amusement parks and six outdoor waterparks.

This weekend, the park will be open from 6 p.m. to midnight on Friday, Oct. 31; noon to midnight on Saturday, Nov. 1; and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 2.
