Premium, made-to-order gourmet hot dogs and a new swing ride will add to the fun at Cedar Point when the Sandusky, Ohio, amusement park/resort opens for the season on Saturday.

Pink’s, a longtime Hollywood restaurant that specializes in gourmet hot dogs, chili dogs and onion rings, is new at the park this summer. It is the restaurant's first franchise east of Las Vegas.

Later in the month, the park will also open WindSeeker, a 301-foot-tall swing ride near the Cedar Point Beach. Seated in open two-passenger cars, riders will have views of the park Lake Erie and the Cedar Point Beach. 

Opening for its 142nd season, Cedar Point features 74 thrill rides and 17 roller coasters, live shows and entertainment for young families. The park will be open every day through Labor Day, Sept. 5.

In addition to the rides, the park offers Tropical Heat, Island Beat, presented in the Red Garter Saloon, featuring the music of Jimmy Buffett and the Miami Sound Machine, while Charlie Brown’s Funtime Frolics will be performed in Camp Snoopy. Four other shows will open later in the summer.

Beginning opening day through Father’s Day, June 19, visitors can enter the Take Home a Thrill contest to win a new XUV 825i John Deere Gator, valued at more than $11,000. Entry forms can be obtained at the park's guest services, the Town Hall Museum or by mail. For details, go
