For all of us who grew up in Michigan, it wasn't the perfect summer unless you had gone to Cedar Point.  This summer the awesome amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio will be celebrating their 150th anniversary.

  The parks 150th anniversary celebration was postponed last year due to the COVID outbreak.  Jason McClure, Vice President and General Manager of Cedar Point  says "Cedar Point will continue to provide safe family fun in 2021, just as it has since its beginning". "Safety is always our top priority, in this current environment, and our team will continue to carry out our mission of not only safety, but the very reason we've been here for more than 150 years - to make people happy'.

Cedar Point is not the oldest amusement park in the United Sates, that honor goes to Lake Compounce in Connecticut.  Lake Compounce is the oldest, continuously-operating amusement park in North America for more than 170 years.
