Dorney Park is also offering a similiar package, i can preseume that Cedar Fair has decided to introduce this kind of dinner package as a Halloween offering at all of their parks.

Actually from my readings, Erie Estate takes place in G.A. Boeckling's Mansion which was later converted into the Cedar Fair Administration building. Also G.A. Boeckling was not from Sandusky but in fact from Indiana. Great story by the way, that is the only haunted house at Cedar Point I have gone through.

Thanks, James!

(I must admit that decided I had to go out to lunch at a steak place after reading this.)

Wow! Great stuff, James. The food and setting both look amazing. And personally, I think $70 is a great deal for everything you received. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks everyone! Alex, Mr. Boeckling had a mansion in Sandusky, but he spent the "season" at Cedar Point in an apartment on the second floor of this building. He also had a special hidden "stash" of bootleg whiskey for special guests during the Prohibition era. And yes, he was from Indiana originally, just like another major force in the theme/amusement park world, our own Robert Niles!

Actually, FWIW, I'm a native Californian. I just went to high school in Indiana.

I just wish Cedar Point could bring this much character, theme, attention-to-detail, charm and quality to the park the rest of the year. They seem perfectly capable of doing just that but it never really comes out in much else at the park.

Robert, that explains it! You once said that you needed to pack a yoga mat when you went on a trip. I couldn't figure out what someone from the Midwest, esp. Indiana, would need with a yoga mat! That is SO Californian! ;+)
