Can you believe it’s August already? Where did the time go? As summer is winding down, so is the amazing opportunity to visit Cedar Point Nights. Through August 14, 2016, fun has no curfew at Cedar Point! There are so many great things to see and do when you visit Cedar Point Nights that it is a “must do” this summer! Here are just 8 reasons you must visit Cedar Point Nights.
Disclosure: As a Cedar Point Blogger I received complimentary tickets to facilitate my visit to share my experience. Regardless, all opinions are my own and those of my family.
1. More Time for Fun
During Cedar Point Nights you get to enjoy the park during extended hours. It doesn’t close until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays! Prefer the weekdays? It’s open until 11PM! That means more time to enjoy the rides, attractions, food, shops, etc. plus all the extra fun going on specifically during Cedar Point Nights!
2. Games on the Beach
Do you love a fun game of corn hole? Head on out to the beach between 5:30PM and 9:30PM to have some fun at Beach Blast! Games are free, and there are even staff members that will fill in to make your game complete! We played quite a few rounds and had a blast! The sand feels amazing on your feet after walking around for most of the day!
3. Delicious Food
Not only can you enjoy some fun games on the beach, but there is delicious food as well! If you love brats or burgers straight off the grill, you won’t want to miss it! The price is reasonable, and the brats are delicious! Plus, there is nothing quite like kicking back on the beach for a bite to eat!
4. Live Music
As if games and good food isn’t enough, there is also live music! Toes in the Sand Band performs some fun cover songs Tuesday through Saturday. Or you can enjoy a live DJ on Mondays!
5. Movies on the Beach
Tuesday through Sunday at dusk, you can enjoy a movie right on the beach! Each evening is a completely different movie! Be sure to check the calendar to be sure to catch the movie you love!
6. Beach Glow Party
After dark, even more fun begins! I seriously could barely take it all in! There is an amazing DJ, and you can’t help but dance! Plus, there are glow-in-the-dark beach games and amazing glow-in-the-dark inflatable sculptures! If that alone isn’t enough fun, there are some amazing (and I think very brave!) fire stunts performers. I was in awe!
If you have never watched fireworks at Cedar Point, you are missing out! Although not as big as their Independence Day fireworks, they were still amazing. It’s seriously beautiful watching fireworks on the beach next to the rides with stunning lights. Plus, on a hot day like the day we were there, you have to love that cool breeze coming off the lake!
8. Riding Coasters at Night
Riding the Cedar Point roller coasters at night is definitely something you must do at least once. Many of them have amazing lights at night, and it is really a completely different experience. Raptor is always one of my favorites, and once it’s dark the lines are not only shorter, but those twists and turns are more exciting. You can’t see them coming! It’s so much fun! Rougarou has some of the best effects like steam coming off the water. It’s definitely neat!

Cedar Point Nights is definitely something you don’t want to miss. It’s the amazing experience that Cedar Point already is but with so much more! So be sure to plan your visit before August 14, 2016 to enjoy this amazing event!
