SANDUSKY, Ohio — The wait is over. Cedar Point announced Tuesday it will reopen on July 9 for season passholders only, followed by a larger reopening to include Cedar Point Resorts guests and those who have pre-purchased tickets.

Cedar Point’s tentative opening dates:

  • Already announced: Cedar Point’s Hotel Breakers and Lighthouse Point RV sites will be open June 12 – 27, prior to Cedar Point’s opening

There will be some restrictions and changes implemented to procedures that affect both staff and guests entering the park.

All guests and staff will be required to wear a mask at all times.

Health Screening – all guests must complete a health screening declaration within the Cedar Point mobile app 24 hours prior to entering the park.

Temperature Screening – guests and associates will undergo a touchless temperature screening prior to entering the park.

Face Coverings – guests and associates will be required to wear a mask at all times.

Social Distancing – markers and signage will be placed throughout the park to assist with social distancing of at least six feet.

“The safety of all of our guests and associates has always been, and will always be our top priority. We’re looking forward to returning to summertime fun in a safe and healthy manner,” said Jason McClure, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point. “We’ve implemented new safety protocols throughout the property that align with the recommendations of health and safety experts. With that guidance, we’re ready and excited to welcome our guests and associates back to Cedar Point.”

Cedar Point is requiring all guests, including season passholders, to make a reservation to visit the park through the Cedar Point mobile app or at cedarpoint.com. Reservation availability for guests who have not yet purchased a ticket will be announced at a later date.
