Cedar Point, known around the globe as the “Best Amusement Park in the World,” is celebrating the 4th of July in style this year with several money-saving offers, two nights of fireworks and several other special surprises as a part of its Stars and Stripes Celebration!

(Valid forms of ID include: active duty ID, retired personnel ID, VA ID or a copy of DD-214 discharge papers and photo ID.)
