From the Sandusky Register…
Cedar Point’s new leader wants to keep the energy coursing through visitors’ veins night and day.
Such is the philosophy behind Cedar Fair’s multimillion-dollar Luminosity, Ignite the Night, the newest offering at the company’s flagship park this summer.
Matthew Ouimet, Cedar Fair’s new CEO and president, noticed the energy level among guests would drop off later at night, said Bryan Edwards, Cedar Point spokesman.
Enter Luminosity, a $6 million production that doesn’t pull any proverbial punches when it comes to showmanship.
The park opens May 12, although Luminosity doesn’t debut until June 1.
Luminosity, a 40-minute show, will feature dancers and acrobats, creating a sort of Cirque du Soleil feel.
Singers and drummers will also be part of the mix, followed by a dance party where a DJ keeps the midway swaying with songs by the likes of Jennifer Lopez and LMFAO.
But the finale comes when lights and pyrotechnics set the night sky on fire.
“It is going to be an amazing show,” Edwards said.
The show will play out each night near the Iron Dragon, in what is now being called Celebration Plaza. Crews are currently building a stage for the program.
