Cedar Point goes smoke-free this summer, and its Shores Waterpark will remain closed

Cedar Point will look a lot different when it opens to guests starting July 9 for season passholders.

The park announced Thursday that it is sticking to its policy to require that all guests wear masks, including on rides.

Spokesman Tony Clark said the only exception will be when guests are eating or drinking. There will be so-called RelaxZones set up in the park where visitors can take a break from wearing a mask.

“We all need to do our part to have fun safely,” Clark said.

Smoking has been banned side of the park, and will permitted only in a designated area outside of the Main Gate.

Clark said the Cedar Point Shores Waterpark will remain closed this summer because the season will be so short.

All guests will be required to make reservations to visit. The only exception will be those who are staying at one of Cedar Point’s hotels.

The park’s Forbidden Frontier on Adventure Island and the Snoopy Bounce attractions will not open this summer.

Snake River Falls and the new Snake River Expedition boat ride will not be open until next summer.

The park also will not be selling any new Fast Lane wristbands, but those who have already purchased them will be allowed to use them this summer.

After its two-day season pass holder preview, Cedar Point will reopen to pass holders and resort guests who have made reservations beginning July 11.
