The haunted ballroom at Cedar Point is located above the arcade on the main midway. The ballroom is only used occasionally by the park. Spectral music is often heard there, and ghostly dancers are seen.
During our trip, there we did not see anything out of the ordinary, but we did get some good pictures.
Here is the ballroom for the midway. If you have been to Cedar Point you may have been to the arcade below.
The building was built in 1906 as the Coliseum and it featured an enormous ballroom on the top level. When you walk into the ballroom you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of the golden age of ballroom dancing and Big Bands.
In the 1930s, the ballroom saved Cedar Point from folding (as many parks did during this era) during the Great Depression with nightly performances by Big Bands such as Woody Herman, Guy Lombardo, Benny Goodman and Blue Barron.
Today, it stands with a quiet grace and splendor as one of only a few remaining amusement park ballrooms.
This is a picture taken from the Cedar Point website of the decorated ballroom.
If you have any stories to tell of a personal experience at the ballroom feel free to send me an e-mail!
