Cedar Point Nights
Cedar Point Nights brings extended hours and special activities to the Sandusky park from July 15 through August 14.

Cedar Point Nights takes over the Sandusky, Ohio amusement park destination from July 15 through August 14 with extended park hours, special food, and nighttime activities for the whole family.

After sunset from July 15 through August 14, visitors to Cedar Point Nights can enjoy:

Extended Park Hours: Cedar Point will be open until 11 p.m. weeknights and until midnight on Fridays & Saturdays during Cedar Point Nights. The park’s rides and coasters also come to life with state-of-the-art vibrant LED lighting and beautiful rainbows of color.

Beach Blast: Every night from 5:30 – 9:30 p.m., guests can relax next to fire pits while enjoying live music from the Toes in the Sand Band. For those looking to enjoy dinner on the beach, freshly-grilled hamburgers and hot dogs will be available for purchase just steps away.

Lakeside Clambakes: Every Friday from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m., Lakeside Clambake features fresh clams and shrimp served with corn cobbettes, potatoes and sausage, all steamed together in a clambake bag. The meal includes one clambake bag as well as all-you-can-eat hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, cookies, Toft’s ice cream and Coca-Cola beverages for $25 plus tax. Guests can enjoy the buffet only for just $16 plus tax (does not include seafood).

Beach Glow Party: Beginning at 9:30 p.m. and lasting until park closing, the beach transforms into a multi-sensory experience, including massive color-changing inflatable lighted sculptures and glow cubes, plus glow-in-the-dark beach games for guests to challenge each other. A live DJ will set the mood with popular hits and requests. There’s also a “silent disco,” where guests can literally dance to their own chosen music style with the help of wireless headphones broadcasting several different genres. Fire performers will dazzle and amaze with pillars of flame, whirling snake torches and blazing hula-hoops in performances for all ages. And each night just before park closing, guests can kiss the night goodbye with an awesome fireworks display.

Luminosity – Ignite the Night: The Celebration Plaza stage comes to life at 9:30 p.m. with Luminosity, Cedar Point’s nighttime music spectacular. A cast of 30 performers showcases current and classic hits, high-energy choreography and aerial acrobatics right above the midway. The show also features pyrotechnics and dramatic visual elements. Luminosity is daily except on Tuesdays.

Movies on the Beach: Guests can enjoy movies on the beach right in front of Cedar Point’s classic beachfront Hotel Breakers. Newly-released and fan-favorite movies start nightly at 9:15 p.m. The entire movie schedule is available at cedarpoint.com.

Virtual Reality Takes Flight: Guests will have the opportunity to wear virtual reality headsets and ride Iron Dragon from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Even though the track layout is the same, guests will enjoy a fully-animated video in their headset with a 360-degree view of the virtual surroundings. While the ride is in motion, the animation closely matches the movements of each car for a riding experience like no other. Iron Dragon in virtual reality is a beta test only. Guests must sign up at the park each day to participate. Availability is limited. Reservations begin at noon near Iron Dragon’s entrance every day during Cedar Point Nights.
