With the 4th of July creeping up on us in less than a week, let’s talk about what we’re doing at Light Up The Point at Cedar Point!

I’m gonna give you the Top 5 Things to Do at Cedar Point on the 4th of July.


It’s one of the largest fireworks displays on the Great Lakes, and with the backdrop of 71 rides and roller coasters, how could this be missed? The massive fireworks display kicks off around 10:30 p.m. and is fired from the Cedar Point Beach. Pull up a park bench, some sand or….

2. The VIP Treatment

You can have your very own reserved seat at our private VIP fireworks viewing party! We’ll provide hamburgers, brats, chips, non-alcoholic beverages, 3-D glasses and a special glow souvenir to remember this special day. You don’t have to worry about anything getting in your way – these are the best seats in the, the sand! Nominal fee to participate. VIP area will be open from 9-11 p.m.

3. Show Us Your Pie Face

What’s more American than apple pie? How about shoving your face in it for a chance to win a Platinum Pass? Join us at Gossip Gulch in FrontierTown for the All-American Pie Eating Contest at 1 p.m. Anyone 18 or older can enter the contest beginning at 11 a.m. at Gossip Gulch.

4. Free Admission for Military

On July 4th, we’re happy to provide complimentary admission to all active, retired and honorably-discharged members of the U.S. Armed Forces. In addition, all first responders are welcome to enjoy free Cedar Point admission as well! Proper identification is required and must be presented at any Cedar Point ticket window. This offer is not available online.

5. Boogie on Down
