Cedar Point Press Release


SANDUSKY, Ohio, Oct. 13, 2005 – It’s the end of another season … and an era. Cedar Point amusement park/resort’s 136th season is quickly winding down to a close. On Sunday, Oct. 30, Cedar Point will close its gates for the final time for the 2005 season. Sunday, Oct. 30 will also be the last day of operation for the park’s White Water Landing thrill ride.

Built in 1982, White Water Landing simulates a wild river ride down an Appalachian River. This action-packed water ride sends its passengers through four challenging water conditions, from meandering past a lagoon to cascading over a 50-foot-high waterfall. When it opened, White Water Landing was the longest hydro-flume ride in the world. In 24 seasons, White Water Landing has given more than 28 million guests a wet and scenic ride. The removal of White Water Landing will provide land for future expansion.

Cedar Point, voted the “Best Amusement Park in the World” for a record eight consecutive years, will be open for three more HalloWeekends, Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays, Oct. 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23, 28, 29 and 30. During HalloWeekends, Cedar Point is transformed into an eerie haunt full of spooky characters, fun monsters, roaming Screamsters and other creatures of the night. Spooktacular live entertainment, two spell-binding magicians, the Fright Zone, CarnEvil, Werewolf Canyon and more await guests of all ages at Cedar Point’s HalloWeekends.

For more information, guests can log on to cedarpoint.com or call the park’s information line at 419.627.2350.
