Cedar Point goes country with new showsWritten by Lori Golaszewski | | firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’re a country music fan, Cedar Point has a show for you. “Got Country” is one of two live shows debuting at the amusement park May 16.
“Got Country” features popular country music songs from yesterday and today. The show will be hosted in the Red Garter Saloon along the Frontier Trail. Also new this year is “Live Music at the Palace,” a piano show that will be performed at the Palace Theater in Frontiertown.
Both shows will be performed six days a week at various times.
In addition, Cedar Point will introduce the Starlight Experience on May 23. The “multi-sensory” light display along the Frontier Trail features more than 1 million colored LED lights. The light display is accompanied by music and changes colors to reflect the four seasons, according to a statement.
The Starlight Experience, which also features oversized replicas of the “Peanuts” characters, is scheduled to begin daily at twilight.
The new offerings are part of an “improved entertainment package” that will appeal to the whole family, said Robin Innes, park spokesman.
Returning shows from last year include “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” a ’50s and ’60s revue; “Snoopy’s Big Bow-Wow,” an ice-skating extravaganza; and “All Wheels Extreme,” a stunt show featuring rollerbladers, bikers and skateboarders.
Funday tickets are $43.99 for adults and $19.99 for juniors and seniors. Innes suggests visiting the Cedar Point Web site to learn about special ticket deals and discounts.
