Cedar Point adds light show for new season

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) - Cedar Point amusement park is cranking up the wattage for its new season by adding a walkthrough light show using more than a million LED lights.

The park in Sandusky in northern Ohio says the Starlight Experience will feature a dazzling canopy of lights in colors that will slowly change to simulate the changing of the seasons. The $1 million attraction also will have music and lighted displays starring Snoopy and other Peanuts characters.

The light show will begin each day at twilight and is free to park visitors.

The 140th season at Cedar Point starts Saturday, May 16.
