Cedar Point Press Release
SANDUSKY, Ohio, Oct. 24, 2011 -- Summertime fun will officially end on Sunday (Oct. 30) when HalloWeekends at Cedar Point will close for the season.
This will be the last weekend to enjoy the park's roller coasters and the fun and frights of HalloWeekends.
During HalloWeekends, the park combines its vast assortment of rides with dozens of Halloween attractions that range from scary fright zones and haunted houses to live entertainment and children's attractions that include the Monster Midway Invasion Celebration parade (4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday afternoon), the Magical House on Boo Hill, the Hay Bale Maze and a sleeping ogre.
With two new fright zones, Blood on the Bayou, featuring zombies and a self-taught butcher, and Screamworks that is inhabited by creatures donning gas masks and goggles, HalloWeekends has more haunted attractions than ever before!
Guests interested in frights can find their fill all weekend long. All of the haunted attractions are ready to scare each night. Plus, the park's rides and roller coasters will be in operation from open to close. (On Friday night, there will be a reduced ride offering.)
There are also several ways to save money on a visit to the park. A four-pack of tickets can be purchased online for only $156, a savings of nearly $11 per ticket. See cedarpoint.com for all of the details. (Tickets must be purchased in advance online.)
Plus, Sunday (Oct. 30) is also the last day of the park's Climbing to a Million contest when current and new Facebook fans of Cedar Point will be able to receive a $10 discount on admission to the park ($39.99 per person) by downloading and printing a special voucher from Facebook and redeeming it at Cedar Point.
There is also still time to save money on summer fun for next year. Cedar Point Season Passes and Cedar Fair Platinum Passes for 2012 are now on sale for the lowest rate available through the end of the weekend. See cedarpoint.com for great ways to save!
On Friday, Cedar Point will be open from 6 p.m. to midnight; noon to midnight on Saturday; and noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday.
