Park free to military this weekend

SANDUSKY – This weekend, Cedar Point is paying tribute to men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces with free admission for all active, retired and honorably-discharged members of the military with valid ID.

Additional tickets for immediate family members may be purchased at the gate for $39.99 each.

This holiday weekend, families can also cool off at Soak City Waterpark, which opens for the season Saturday, or enjoy Picnic at the Point, an all-you-can-eat buffet 4-6 p.m. Sunday and Monday in Cedar Point’s Coral Courtyard. Tickets may be purchased online or at any admissions booth.

To honor those who serve, off-duty members of the U.S. Coast Guard are traveling across the country in an electric golf cart to support the Wounded Warrior Project.

The group made a stop at Cedar Point this week to mark Day 22 of their 28-day journey. Known as GO CARTS: Guardsmen Carting Across the States, they departed from Petaluma, Calif., in April. The tour is to end Sunday.

Their travelers’ goal is to raise $50,000 for injured men and women of the armed forces.
