The riverboats will travel along the winding Snake River that surrounds Forbidden Frontier on Adventure Island and the Millennium Force.

While aboard the ride, you’ll be asked to ” help complete a secret mission that has you smuggling valuable bounty to safer waters.” There will be LIVE actors and special effects.

Another announcement made Wednesday was about the “Ticket of a Lifetime.” Cedar Point said it’s a ticket “that pays the legacy of fun and thrills of Cedar Point forward for generations to come.”

Here’s how it will work, according to the amusement park:

  • Beginning in February, guests can enter for a chance to win a Ticket of a Lifetime – a ticket that affords them free admission to Cedar Point beginning with the 150th anniversary season and lasting the rest of their lives.
  • 150 winners will be chosen throughout 2020 and each winner can enjoy the ride with three select family or friends for a total of four Tickets of a Lifetime per winner. Guests will have the chance to win online, outside the park and at Cedar Point.
  • Ticket of a Lifetime access includes unlimited admission to Cedar Point, Cedar Point Shores Waterpark, free parking and more.
  • Ticket of a Lifetime promotion not open to residents of New York and Florida.


The park’s 150th anniversary will be celebrated with a huge nighttime celebration.

The “Celebrate 150 Spectacular” will include floats, and over 100 performers.

A parade will travel down the Main Midway and end in a street party at Celebration Plaza.

The celebration kicks off nightly from June 12 – August 16.

Even more mouth-watering food will be available next season as well.  The park will reopen Saturday, May 9.
