I'm certain most of you who are reading this are familiar, at least in theory, of the concept of Cedar Point's new attraction on Adventure Island. It's a major departure for the park. In general, Cedar Park has focused on the roller coasters, calling itself "Americas Roller Coast." Well, the times are changing. Welcome to Forbidden Frontier.
Your choice is to either take the challenge to pull you and your friends across Snake River Swamp, walk along the Boggy Bridge, or take the path and start your adventure. Your path takes you across to the island, and as you move along the path, there are detonators that, if you dare, can make quite a splash.
As you enter, you come upon your first building, where you are introduced to Etta Fox, or one of her officers, and you will be told about Truce Day and the two clans: the Wapis and the Cayugas. Of course, you can simply explore and look at the new buildings or partake of the food offered, but be forewarned, the occupants of the island will attempt to pull you into the story, and if you have the time, I suggest you allow them to do so.
Join a tribe. I will not suggest which one... that is for you. There are puzzles to solve and mysteries afoot. There will be a presentation at The Middle Ground Stage that will bring you up to speed on the events of the past five years and what is to happen throughout the day. You may be asked to participate in the festivities. Of course, there is food and drink for you to sustain yourself throughout the day as you wind through the adventure. Your kids can find their own adventure in the climbing area, and you can rest in a row of hammocks and reflect on the day or just enjoy the surroundings.
There is much to do throughout the day — you may be asked to deliver messages, packages, or items, or you may be sent on a mission. There are hidden items to collect and places to explore.
A gypsy might tell you your future. Through it all you will be asked to join a side... and at the end of the day, when Truce Day is over, there will be a celebration at the stage.
There is much more for you to discover, but it is for you to explore on your visit to Cedar Point. As if there wasn't already enough of a reason to schedule you trip to Sandusky, Ohio, this summer, you now have a full day of adventure ahead of you. And if you encounter the gypsy Nadya, tell her Scott sent you.Tweet
