2015 Winter Chill Out News!

The Cedar Point Winter Chill Out was such a great event put on by the America’s Greatest Amusement Park! There are so many awesome announcements to talk about! Before we get into that though, we want to thank Cedar Point and everybody that went to the Chill Out for their donations to Give Kids the World! The park’s event raised a grand total of $27,000! Way to go everybody!

Here’s the list of everything that was announced for the 2015 season:

  • Media Day for Rougarou will be Friday, May 8, 2015. The event will be for invited members of the media only. There will however be a drawing and 100 roller coaster enthusiasts will be invited to the invite and they can each bring one guest! More about the drawing will come soon. If you attended the Winter Chill Out, your name is already in the lottery.
  • There will be a “First Rider Auction” that will also take place on May 8, 2015. More details on how to take part in this will be revealed at a later date.
  • Season Passholder Preview Night will also be on May 8, 2015 from 7pm-10pm. You do not have to be a coaster enthusiast to attend, you only need a regular or Platinum Cedar Fair season pass. Rougarou and some other unannounced rides will be operating!
  • There will be a discount for season Passholders on FastLane Plus. With your season pass, you will be able to get FastLane Plus for the price of regular FastLane!
  • Turnpike Cars (The cars that were on the Blue Streak Midway near Calypso have been removed.
  • Calypso has been removed from the Blue Streak Midway and will be relocated to the left of Giant Wheel. It will be re-themed and renamed “Tiki Twirl.”
  • The left most section of what used to be known as the “Earthquake” ride and is currently a storage location will become a new candy shop called “Sweet Spot.” Sweet Spot will feature park made fudge, candy apples, and other Sweet treats!
  • The Gazebo food stand on the Wicked Twister Midway has been removed.
  • Krazy Kars will be moving where the Gazebo food stand was formally located and will be renamed,” Joe Cool’s Dodgem School.”
  • Dodgem has been relocated from it’s original location to the former spots of Sir Rub a Dub’s Tubs and Krazy Kars.
  • Good Time Theatre has been demolished. This means that from where Turnpike Cars was all the way to the train station, right before Rougarou, there will be space for the unknown attraction(s) coming to the park in 2015.
  • With Good Time Theatre gone, the park will feature more live entertainment throughout the park to make up for the loss of the ice show. More will be announced at a later date.
  • Hotel Breakers is getting two fire pits, one on each side of the entrance on the lake side of the hotel.
  • Maverick will be getting brand new restraints that will be similar to the restraints on Intimidator 305 at Kings Dominion. This will mean less head banging for some people and a more comfortable ride!
  • An actual Rougarou train has been unveiled! It looks amazing!
