This Amusement Park Is The Most Exhilarating Day Trip For Detroit Thrill Seekers

Make sure to put this on next summer's bucket list!
Cedar Point Is The Most Exhilarating Day Trip For Detroit Thrill Seekers

The dreary December weather probably has a lot of us counting down the days until summer. And with summer comes the opportunity for piling into a car with friends for a day trip. One trip you should consider is Cedar Point, which is only two hours outside of Detroit.

It's arguably the best amusement park in the Midwest and in 2020, they've got a lot of fun things planned for the park's 150th anniversary. One of those birthday activities is probably the most exciting giveaway of the year. 

150 people will win a Ticket of a Lifetime, meaning that they'll be able to get into the park for free for the rest of their lives!

Each winner also gets to select three family members or friends to win with them and all four people will receive free lifetime passes to the park. 

The contest is opening in February and you will be able to enter online or at the park.

Unfortunately, this contest is not open to residents of New York or Florida. 

The winners will be announced throughout 2020 so make sure to keep an eye on it because this is not a contest that you want to miss out on. The lifetime tickets will include access to the waterpark and exclusive access to some rides. 

Two of the rides at Cedar Point are an absolute must for anyone looking to be scared out of their minds in a fun way. 

When the Dragster peaks at 420 feet and drops you all the way down, your life just might flash before your eyes.

The Millennium Force is one of the longest rides at the park and it inspires that unique feeling of terror and joy that only comes from a really great coaster. 

The park is on Lake Erie and they have a waterpark and beach. There's really every fun summer activity at this place. Let's hope that one of us wins those lifetime tickets so we can keep going back!

China Locked 33K Visitors In At Disneyland & It Was All Because Of One Person

Trapped in an amusement park on Halloween. What could go wrong?

There are worse places to get locked in than Disneyland — except when it happens on Halloween and there's an invisible virus potentially locked in there with you.

Chinese officials closed the doors to Shanghai Disneyland and reportedly held more than 33,000 people inside the park on Sunday after one person who may have been a guest tested positive for COVID-19.

The saga of alleged voter fraud in the 2020 United States presidential election continues, and this time it features a "star witness" brought in by Trump lawyer Rudy Guiliani who absolutely went off last night during a hearing in front of the Michigan House Oversight Committee. 

Melissa Carone, who claims to have worked for Dominion Voting Systems, argued that Joe Biden's 154,000-vote victory in Michigan was the result of voter fraud.

She could not fully say in words what she DID at her job but she did INSIST that fraud occurred because she "saw it" occur.

The Marche du Nain Rouge is a tradition in this city that reminds you why this city is such a special place. Although this parade is similar to Mardi Gras in that we also love a good party, the celebration is distinctly Detroit. Residents of the city are the main attraction so make sure to come dressed to impress (or terrify). 

Everyone meets at noon on March 22 in full costume to march seven blocks down 2nd Ave. towards the Masonic Temple. Once the procession reaches the end of the road, it's time for the serious parties to begin.
