Cedar Point has sent us a press release announcing details about their latest additions for the 2019 season!

In addition to Forbidden Frontier on Adventure Island, an interactive and immersive storytelling experience, guests of Cedar Point will have more to explore this season. The park is introducing new ways to dine and a summertime street celebration in Frontier Town.

Hugo’s Italian Kitchen

A taste of Italy is coming to America’s Roller Coast®. Hugo’s Italian Kitchen will serve traditional Italian fare like hand-made pastas, fresh pizzas baked in a large open-flamed brick oven, chicken parmesan sandwiches, salads, meatball sandwiches and fresh desserts. Hugo’s Italian Kitchen will be located in the former Midway Market location, adjacent to the Raptor roller coaster.

BackBeatQue

Live music and savory smokehouse barbeque come together at BackBeatQue. This new rock ‘n’ roll and Motown-inspired eatery will serve smoked brisket, rotisserie chicken, pork platters and fresh perch. Southern sides like okra, cornbread muffins and house-made mac & cheese will also be available.

BackBeatQue’s outdoor dining space will give guests a great place to eat, relax and take in the sights and sounds of the BackBeat Quartet and Cedar Point’s Gemini Midway. BackBeatQue will be located between the Monster ride and Magnum XL-200 roller coaster.

Frontier Festival

Frontier Town, already home to the “Best New Ride of 2018,” Steel Vengeance, turns up the WILD factor this summer during the new Frontier Festival – an immersive Old West, sunflower-inspired street festival with local artisans, kids’ crafts and games, continuous live entertainment and wild food and drink to sample and savor.

A bounty of family activities will be available, including the Flower Patch – an opportunity for kids to choose their own flower and decorate their own flowerpot; the Junkyard Jamboree – where guests can make their own music on antique metal items; and the daily Balloon Stampede – where kids can stomp on balloons for prizes.

Guests can also enjoy live music from Cedar Point’s Bluegrass Jamboree and other local bands on the Gossip Gulch Stage. Plus, guests can tap their boots during line and square dancing lessons at the Hubbub Hoedown and meet the Frontier Townsfolk for special photo opportunities.

Frontier Festival also features specialty food items made right on the midway, like two-meat barbeque baked beans, bison chili, pulled pork sliders, fire roasted chicken drums, smoked wings, toasted sunflower vinegar slaw, smoked brisket, wild strawberry shortcake, peaches & cream and more. Guests can wash the wild food down with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage samples, including craft brews, ciders, wines and handcrafted lemonades.

Frontier Festival runs daily June 7 – 30 from 4 – 10 p.m. There is a nominal event fee for food & beverage tasting cards.

Forbidden Frontier on Adventure Island

The park’s new signature attraction, an immersive, themed entertainment experience, will open Saturday, May 25. More information on Forbidden Frontier on Adventure Island will be released in the coming weeks on Cedar Point’s blog at cedarpoint.com, including story detail, artist renderings of attractions and more.

I think those of us in the rust belt go to places like CP to forget that we live in the rust belt for a few hours.

Why get more creative if it works?

Also what is considered creative?? Seems pretty creative to me.

Make sure you get in touch with one of the higher-ups and let them know what they 'need' to do. You seem to have it figured out, with such an absolute word.

I gotta say, maybe it's the time of the year you went, but being "pricey" is just not true. I went with 3 people last May to get on Steel Vengeance, we paid for 1 night in a 2 bedroom hotel room with queen beds and a view of the park. We got tickets for both days (the day we arrived, and the day after we stayed the night at the hotel), we got drink wristbands for both days, and early entries on both days if we showed up early enough the first day.

Stay Duration Mon. May. 21, 2018 - Tue. May. 22, 2018 (1 night)
Guests 3 adults [48" and taller and under 62 years]
Room Room 2 Queen-Size Beds & Sleeper Chair
Rate 2 Day Ride & Refresh
Total $410.64 ($387.40 + $23.24 Taxes & Fees)

At $136.88 per person, that is an effing bargain to visit Cedar Point and stay on the peninsula for 2 days if you ask me.

you're talking 3 people for 1 night (with a special package deal), vs 2 people for 4 nights.

so yeah, that's where Bill is getting "pricey" from.

is it worth it? absolutely, but yeah, it's not as inexpensive as staying off site.
(tho I would never go and stay off site. . . for me, Breakers is the place to stay when going to CP, since not a local - it's a rare destination visit for me)

If you don't split the cost of a hotel room for one night then Breakers is indeed pricey. Sure I can pack a few 'bros' into a hotel room and get discount tickets, but that's not how many of us on this site operate. I can assure you when Emily and I stayed for a couple nights in June three years ago our cost was comparable to some of the very nice beach front resorts and condos we've stayed at. I want to say that with our taxes and fees we paid around $400 per night. That doesn't factor in what we paid that season for Platinum passes or the FL+ passes we purchased for both days. All said and done, I know it was around $1,500 before we even addressed food and drink. With the total cost of everything from food, gas, drinks, and other amenities, I think we figured we paid pretty close to $2,000.

Consider this: We stayed in a very nice two bedroom beach front condo on beautiful Santa Rosa Island in Pensacola, FL last August. It was right around $2,300 for the entire week after fees. We're talking a modern, updated, well furnished, beautiful condo in a nice complex, vs. a cramped hotel room with a window or two. (And in Bert's case a sh*tter that won't flush) Just for the hell of it, I just priced a room for this June at Cedar Point and it's $2,270 before taxes and fees. Add on what you would pay for tickets, any FL passes, etc., and you're not talking about chump change by any means.

So when people like Bert and I say Breakers is pricey... it is. Granted, some of it depends on the type of experience you want to have, but Breakers and Cedar Point in general can be very pricey.
