For 60 years, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the PEANUTS characters have brought happiness to people of all ages. Cedar Point will be celebrating this milestone with special PEANUTS-themed events for eight days, beginning Sunday, Aug. 1 through Sunday, Aug. 8 at the Sandusky, Ohio, amusement park/resort.
All week long, guests who donate to "Helping Snoopy’s Friends" will receive a discount on admission. Those who bring in dog or cat treats, cat and dog toys, canned cat food or chewable rawhides will be able to purchase a ticket for $35.99, a $10 savings. All donations will be given to the Humane Society of Erie County (Sandusky, Ohio).
Guests will also be able to compete in the PEANUTS 60th Anniversary Scavenger Hunt by identifying PEANUTS-themed images. Three winners will be selected from the correct entries to receive a Family Four-Pack of Cedar Point tickets, a $100 shopping spree in the Snoopy Boutique or a Cedar Point gift bag. Entry forms can be obtained at the Guest Services Booth at the front of the park or the Town Hall Museum in Frontiertown and online at cedarpoint.com.
