UV volleyball, glow corn hole, fire pits and fireworks part of nightly Cedar Point beach activities

SANDUSKY — Cedar Point has nighttime activities on its beach each day now through Aug. 19.

The Sandusky amusement park’s history began on the mile-long Cedar Point Beach. Now, thanks to a several “zones” on the beach, it becomes energized every night.

The Glow Zone features UV black lights. Those wearing white clothing will see the brightest glow under these special lights.

The Chill Zone has glow furniture and fire pits for relaxing.

The Family Fun Zone has UV volleyball, glow corn hole and other popular games.

And then there’s the Silent Disco Zone, where people can grab a pair of special headphones that have their own soundtrack — and nobody else can hear the music.

Every night just before park closing, the sky is painted with color as fireworks burst over the beach and signify the perfect end to the perfect day.

The beach activities are all free, with a nominal fee for snacks.

Plenty of other activities are taking place inside the amusement park.

At the Fire and Ice Zone, there is a the stage where a 12-piece band of talented musicians plays two sets, each with songs with “hot” and “cool” themes.

The beach has been brought inside the park with a sandy dance floor just in front of the stage with additional ground seating behind it.

Aerialists and fire performers are also on hand to heat things up.

Shows are nightly except Wednesdays, 8:30 and 10 p.m.

Just near the stage,  from 7 to 11 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, the Fire and Ice Tastebud Tour showcases specialty food samples where hot and spicy meets cool and refreshing. Cedar Point is serving up things such as sweet and spicy pork, bourbon BBQ and sizzlin’ seafood. The drinks include various flavors of lemonades, including jalapeno.

For a nominal fee, patrons get a sampling card with small tear-off coupons to give at the food station (one coupon per sample or drink).
