Wicked Twister should go to Valleyfair. It would fit nicely right next to Steel Venom.

Actually any day where the park is only open till 8 those last 2 weeks of August are some of the lightest days of the season for in terms of crowds.

^I know that used to be the case, and I used to always go during that time for years. However, I've noticed it's getting busier during even those weeks in recent years. So while I imagine crowds will be less than they are this week still, they're not going to be as "dead" as "dead week" used to be known for. At least, I wouldn't expect that, and then be pleasantly surprised if they are.

The Fun Is Just Beginning


The biggest celebration in Cedar Point’s history is about to take place as we celebrate our 150th anniversary during the entire 2020 season – and you’re cordially invited to the party.

In the coming months, we’ll reveal additional surprises leading up to our opening day in May.

But there are a few new tidbits we can share, all coming in 2020:
•A new nighttime celebration will take place along the Main Midway
•New (and throwback) food items are coming to tempt your taste buds
•Nostalgic merchandise and souvenirs will give a nod to the park’s historic past
•A reimagined Town Hall, complete with a more detailed look at Cedar Point history, will be waiting for you
•A river expedition for the entire family is set to launch into our waters

More details on the above additions AND even more new surprises are coming soon.


Sounds like Paddlewheel is returning!
