Cedar Point officials said Tuesday the Sandusky, Ohio, amusement park will host a sneak peek weekend of its 150th anniversary season May 2-3.

The event has been dubbed the "Just for Fun Weekend" and will enable park-goers to relive the days when Cedar Point didn't charge admission to enter and each attraction had its own ticket price.

Anyone who wants unlimited access to available rides must purchase a $20.20 ride wristband online at the same time as they make their RSVP ticket reservation. Tickets and wristbands will not be available at the park.
