AKRON, Ohio – Eric Morrison and Scott Kenimond say they saw Cedar Point’s contest on its OnPoint blog: 13 couples to get married during September’s Friday the 13th opening of Cedar Point’s HalloWeekends.

But when they learned the offer didn’t apply to same sex couples, they took action.

“We both have a love of roller coasters,” said Kenimond. The couple is in love, and in love with coasters, so a contest to get married at Cedar Point for the opening night of HalloWeekends seemed just right.

“You were going to be married by a Zombie, or renew your vows by a Zombie. And you had to dress like Zombies,” Kenimond said. “So it was just kind of cool because we both love Halloween, we both love roller coasters, we both love Cedar Point, so I just thought it was like, the dream thing.”

But the fine print said only a man and woman could be selected due to marriage laws in Ohio.
