The show requires a new stage and the removal of the currently white-screen that is standing in the midway for the park's last light and sound shows, American Portrait and Hot Summer Lights! The new stage and show will completely re-shape the Million Dollar Midway into Celebration Plaza: an area described by Lee Alexakos that "families can enjoy together."
The new stage will be building adjacent to Coasters, in front of Iron Dragon's final brake run. To make way for the stage, Iron Dragon's queue line will be re-located next to the ride's exit gate.
In daylight hours, the Luminosity stage will be home to a new Peanuts-themed show, while the Good Time Theatre across the plaza will be home to an all-new Snoopy ice skating show.
At night, the park will come alive. New lighting packages will be displayed on Millennium Force, Power Tower, and Giant Wheel, bringing the rides back to their glory days and back to date with WindSeeker in terms of lighting. In the presentation, Alexakos stated Luminosity: Ignite the Night would being around 9 P.M., and will brighten the atmosphere even more, with live show of over 25 dancers, 3 drummers, 2 cirque performers, and 2 D.J.'s that will entertain guests with over 40 minutes of lights, fireworks, and music. According to a list shown at the presentations, songs from Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Adele, Jay-Z, the cast of "Glee," Maroon 5, and my personal favorite, Lady Gaga, will be played during the performance, among other artists.
During the show, the Main Midway will be another area to check out. The entire main midway will be completely fitted with a new music and lighting system, including lighting elements of the Coliseum and Snoopy Boutique. Moving lights shaped like Peanuts characters will also be shone down on the walkways on the Main Midway.
With all of these improvements, along with the pre-existing Starlight Experience, Cedar Point will never sleep!
I'm so overjoyed that Mr. Ouimet is quickly making many improvements to make Cedar Point better than it already was, and is bringing back great elements of the park that Mr. Kinzel let fade away years ago, and eliminating the problems of the park that Mr. Kinzel seemed to ignore time and time again. Seeing the park in such a great condition will definitely be something amazing this summer.
