PEANUTS Happiness Is… Cedar Point

Cedar Point Press Release

SANDUSKY, Ohio, July 29, 2011 — With the help of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the other PEANUTS characters, Cedar Point will be celebrating what individual happiness really means during PEANUTS Happiness Is… Week.

Next week, Monday, Aug. 1 through Sunday, Aug. 7, the Sandusky, Ohio, amusement park/resort will be holding special PEANUTS-themed events dedicated to having fun.

Starting Monday, Camp Snoopy and Planet Snoopy will have tables filled with a variety of fun activities for children to do as they take a break from all the rides and shows the park has to offer.

Kids can partake in a PEANUTS-themed activity sheet that is filled with connect-the-dots, tic-tac-toe, and much more. The sheets will also allow kids to gain early entry to the 4 p.m. performance of Everybody Loves Snoopy ice-skating show.

Guests will also have the opportunity to create a Chain of Happiness that will allow kids to express themselves by writing on a strip of paper of what makes them happy. The decorated strips of paper will then be linked together to form a giant chain that will be put on display for guests to see and enjoy.

All week long, guests can find happiness by “Helping Snoopy’s Friends.” Any guest who donates, new, unopened treats for our furry friends will receive a coupon for $10 off one regular admission ticket. All donations will be given to the Humane Society of Erie County.

During PEANUTS Happiness Is… Week, guests having the most fun will receive a coupon for a free scoop of ice cream from Toft’s Ice Cream Parlor located in the front of the park, next to Pink’s, the new hot dog eatery that opened this summer.

On Sunday, Aug. 7, Happiness Is… Week will be celebrating birthdays with a giant gift. On that day, Snoopy and the gang will unwrap the present revealing a surprise that every guest will be able to enjoy.

For additional PEANUTS fun, the Breakfast Buffet with the PEANUTS Characters will be available from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 6-7. The PEANUTS characters will greet guests at the Midway Market. Tickets may be purchased online at cedarpoint.com or at the gate.

**Cedar Point Fans are guessing that whatever is inside this present is a new ride/attraction for the Wicked Twister midway area.  The reasoning behind this because ValleyFair “gave” Snoopy a Planet Snoopy and Dorney Park’s 8 million dollar present is also rumored to be a Planet Snoopy.

SANDUSKY, Ohio – Happiness is…

Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the lovable PEANUTS characters have brought smiles and laughter to people of all ages for decades.  In fact, this summer the group will be celebrating their 60th anniversary.  In honor of that historic milestone, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company’s (NYSE: FUN) 11 amusement parks will host a variety of celebrations on Sunday, Aug. 8.

From family-friendly scavenger hunts and mask decorating to special events and giveaways, the Cedar Fair parks are preparing for a celebration like no other.  Additionally, several parks will offer guests a discount on their admission ticket when they bring in a donation for animal-friendly charities and organizations.

“The PEANUTS characters have been a wonderful addition to our parks because they’re loved by people of all ages,” said Dick Kinzel, Cedar Fair’s chairman, president and CEO.  “Children are just as excited to meet Snoopy as their parents are.  It really makes a trip to one of our parks extra special for families.”
