SANDUSKY, OH - Unofficially, summer begins Saturday, May 7th for many northeast Ohioans, because the roller coasters and rides are now up and running at Cedar Point.

The park opened for the 2016 season Saturday morning. The big news this year is the new roller coaster, Valravn, the world's tallest, longest and fastest dive coaster.
