Cedar Point opened its gates for the 2014 season this past weekend and debuted two new family rides, Pipe Scream and Lake Erie Eagles, to rave reviews.
This week the “Best Amusement Park in the World” has a lineup full of activities designed to educate, save money and celebrate.
Physics, Science and Math Week, now through Friday, is when gravity, inertia, calculus and more come to life aboard Cedar Point’s record-breaking collection of rides and roller coasters. High school physics students will have the chance to apply the lessons they’ve learned in the classroom while middle school students will discover how math and science apply to the fun of Cedar Point by using stopwatches, rulers and calculators to measure speed, height and shape. Educational partners such as COSI-Columbus, The Imagination Station in Toledo, Michigan Science Center in Detroit, NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland and many more will help teach students the science behind the thrills.
Not only can students have fun learning this week, they can also save money on admission during Cedar Point’s Student ID Weekend. This Friday through Sunday, May 16 to 18, all students in grades kindergarten through 12th and those with a current college ID can purchase a special one-day admission ticket to Cedar Point for $44.99. That’s a savings of $15 off the regular front gate admission price. Students must present a valid school ID to receive this offer. Other restrictions apply. Visit the Cedar Point website for additional rules and details.
A season pass to Cedar Point already helps guests enjoy a summer’s worth of fun. The pass gets guest even more benefits during Season Passholder Appreciation Weekend! This Friday through Sunday, May 16-18, all Season and Platinum Passholders can purchase special Bring-a-Friend tickets for $19.99 (limit of four tickets per passholder). Also, all season passholders can take advantage of the Platinum Passholder perks and offers (excluding free parking). Special offers are also available for Season and Platinum Passholders at Cedar Point’s Breakers Express and Hotel Breakers. And just when you thought you couldn’t handle any more perks, Cedar Point will be hosting an extra hour of exclusive ride time for Season and Platinum Passholders on Top Thrill Dragster on Friday night and Maverick and Millennium Force on Saturday night after the park closes for the day.
