This year's opening day at Cedar Point will be a very exciting experience that will be fun for the whole family! There will be numerous events that you should definitely check out this May 16!
First, open up the 2009 season to your favorite amusement park with an amazing display that is sure to amaze the entire audience! A professional skydiver will fall back down to Earth holding the American flag, right into Cedar Point! A 100 x 100 foot area will be cleared in the Cedar Point parking lot to make a safe landing for the sky diver, and it will be a very cool sight, and a great way to start up the season.
After the sky diver lands at the park, it will be time for the National Anthem, to salute the United States of America.
Next, the highest bidders for the first train for Magnum XL-200's 20th anniversary will take their ride at 9:00 AM. If you would like to be on this train, make sure you bid on a seat at the official auction page. And remember, all proceeds from the auction will go to the American Red Cross: Firelands Chapter.
After the first rides, Cedar Point will be officially open for the season! But then the first riders of Magnum will get to enjoy a banquet, where they will eat lunch in the Breakers East Conference Room, get commemorative T-shirts, receive a group photo, and a bronze medallion. Check it out:
