The 2020 season at Cedar Point is sure to be one remembered for decades to come.  The park is planning a celebration like no other to honor their 150th anniversary, and on top of a mega-sized list of special events and new goodies, the park has now revealed even more.

Aimed at fans of the park while also giving a major nod to their history, the park will be holding a Just For Fun Weekend on May 2nd and 3rd.  A full week before the park opens guests will be able to visit from noon to 6 pm each day to get their first look at the park's 2020 season.  There will be no admission fee to enter the park, but a RSVP is required, and wrist bands to enjoy rides will only cost $20.20.

The park's Main and Lakeside midways will be open, and their big rides too - such as GateKeeper, Valravn, Blue Streak and Raptor.  Guests can also "try a delicious treat from the new French Quarter Confections, say hello to the PEANUTS™ gang, see a special film celebrating Cedar Point's history in the Jack Aldrich Theatre, pick up limited-edition 150th anniversary merchandise at Celebration Central and be among the first to collect and trade Anniversary buttons."

If interested just be sure to RSVP online and also you must purchase ride wrist bands online ahead of time as well.

2020 will also see the start of the Gold Pass in use at the park, but as a special treat to Platinum Pass holders the park is holding Anniversary Platinum Preview Nights from 4 to 8 pm on May 6th and 7th.

While the park will have selected rides and attractions open for the event, the big draw will be the first chance to experience the new Snake River Expedition.  Platinum Passholders can register for a boarding time to experience the new ride, and of course then they have bragging rights that they rode it first!

The park will also have free food offerings at several locations, and special merchandise celebrating the park's anniversary.  As with the Just For Fun Weekend event, interested parties must register online ahead of the event.
