The big new addition at Cedar Point in 1971 was the Frontier Trail. Scenes from the Main Midway are also included in this clip.

I never knew that there was a Frontier Trail sign near the Main crossing like the newer one that is currently by the Glass Blowing Shop.

Also, I like the carriages parked alongside Red Garter.

Really neat stuff. Thanks for posting this!

While that is true, this video predates my existence by two years. The kids in the video are my aunt and uncle. :)

Looked like quite a windy day from the flags... and yet Sky Ride was running no problem.

Wonder what's changed? Then again they used to care about capacity too...smh

I wonder if the Sky Ride fall at 6 StL triggered a policy change?
I remember Sky Rides were removed from both 6 StL and KC WOF after that.

Doesn't look much more than a normal summer breeze by those flags. What has normally changed policy over the years has just been a change in leadership. Cedar Fair has gotten in the habit of adding more steps than necessary to consider an operation safe.

Great video! Iā€™m surprised nobody has mentioned the confederate flag at about 1:57. šŸ˜œ

That is the state flag of Georgia, used until around 2001 when it changed to the current version.

I don't know what I hate more...you or the fact that I knew the flag. Either way you still aren't getting a Christmas card.

You haven't sent me one in the almost 20 years we've known each other anyways.
