I haven’t done a Cedar Point memories post in a few weeks. I had the idea of trying to get home movie videos up through different decades. I went on the YouTube hunt today to get you all the seventies home movies I could find.
Most of the videos are silent and shot on Super 8. Do not expect the best quality. You couldn’t just shoot high-definition video on your phone back then. I am grateful for what still exists. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
This video is from 1970:
Some of the shots are the same as the first video, but this one is longer. I think it might be the same source.
This next video is from 1972:

Here is another one from 1976:
We make it to 1978:
This last video is not a home movie, but part of a documentary called Coastermania that includes footage shot within the park during the 1979 season
