Like clockwork, the middle of May means one thing — Cedar Point will open its gates once again for adventure enthusiasts.
This year, two new things have park-goers excited for May 14.
In terms of food, locals and visitors alike will be able to get their hands on Pink’s, a restaurant specializing in gourmet hot dogs, chili dogs and onion rings. A Hollywood legend since 1939, it will be located near the front of the park, just across from Toft’s Ice Cream Parlor. It will be the first Pink’s franchise east of Las Vegas.
The brand new ride WindSeeker, a 301 foot tall towering swing ride located near the Cedar Point Beach, is slated to open later in the month. Seated in open two-passenger cars, riders will be treated to dramatic views of Cedar Point, Lake Erie and the Cedar Point Beach.
“We are very excited to officially kick off summer in the Midwest,” said John Hildebrandt, Cedar Point’s vice president and general manager. “It has been a long, cold winter and people are ready to have some fun. Roller coasters, hot dogs and Snoopy are the perfect solution.”
