OK, you like the roller coasters. But can your family symbolize all of the other families who flock to the park?

The amusement park has launched a "Very Important Family" contest on its Facebook page. Running through April 15, the contest invites contestants to submit short videos -- less than 90 seconds long -- explaining why their family counts as Cedar Point's biggest fans.

The winning family will participate in the May 14 ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the park for the season, joining Cedar Point VIPs such as Cedar Fair CEO Dick Kinzel, general manager John Hildebrandt and Snoopy.

The chosen family will also get six free park tickets, a commemorative photo of the ribbon cutting, preferred ride seating, a Cedar Point gift bag and lunch at the park.

Other families get a chance to gain Internet fame. Cedar Fair officials will screen the entries and show the best at, where fans can vote on their favorites from April 28 through May 1. Those votes and a panel of Cedar Point judges will determine the winner.

For information on the contest visit Cedar Point on Facebook.
