Get an aerial view of Cedar Point on the Sky Ride, the closest thing we had to a drone flyover in 1964.

In 1964, Beatlemania was taking America by storm, the new Ford Mustangs were rolling off Detroit assembly lines for the very first time and Bewitched and Bonanza were the top-rated TV shows.

More than 50 years ago, 1964 seems like along time to us, but Cedar Point was nothing new, as the park first opened in 1870 on the shores of Lake Erie in Sandusky, Ohio. See what the park looked like from above in this rare 8mm footage shot from the Sky Ride at Cedar Point in 1964.
