Cedar Point GM Provides Special Reopening Video Message
Cedar Point was set to host an entire season of epic 150th anniversary celebrations during 2020. But, those celebrations will have to wait until 2021. Park officials have confirmed that all of their planned 150th season attractions and festivities have been postponed until next year – including the new Snake River Expedition boat ride.
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic remains a part of our daily lives, the team at Cedar Point continues to work with health and safety experts as they plan for increased safety measures and operational changes throughout the park. The park is in constant communication with state and federal governments as they are looking forward to welcoming guests back just as soon as it is safe to do so. Jason McClure, GM of Cedar Point, provided a special video message about re-opening.
Although the reopen date is still uncertain, Cedar Point provided the following update as to what guests can expect when the park reopens:
- Our team is working hard to ensure some of your favorite rides and attractions will be ready for you when the park is able to open. In the meantime, be sure to visit TicketofaLifetime.com each week to register and enter for your chance to win free admission for life!
- Our 150th Anniversary Celebration, along with its attractions and festivities such as the Snake River Expedition ride, Town Hall Museum and Celebrate 150 Spectacular immersive nighttime parade and show will all be postponed to 2021. Our team determined that a celebration of this magnitude must be done right. In order to observe and respect social distancing, we have made the decision to postpone this much anticipated event until next season.
- Special events like Performances in the Park, Spring Youth & Education Programs, CoasterMania, Frontier Festival, Coaster Campout, Run & Ride and Season Passholder Appreciation Weekend will be postponed to 2021.
- Experiences like VIP, Sunrise, Segway and Boardwalk Cruiser Tours will also be postponed until 2021.
As previously announced, the validity of all 2020 Season Passes and Season Pass Add-On Products through the 2021 season have been extended at all Cedar Fair parks, including Cedar Point. Plus, they have paused Easy Pay billing while the park is closed*. The park is continuing to work with guests who may have prepaid single-day tickets valid for days during the temporary park closure. Ticket inquiries may be directed to cedarpoint.com/contact. Team members are reaching out individually to guests with Group Sales and Cedar Point Resorts bookings.
“The safety of our guests and associates has always been and will always be our top priority. We want to assure you that when we do open, Cedar Point will continue to be a safe and fun environment for all. Our team is 100% committed to this promise. And we are working alongside industry experts and government officials toward this shared goal. We will keep you updated as we move forward; in the meantime, we thank you for your loyalty and continued support”.
Earlier this week, Cedar Fair CEO Richard Zimmerman highlighted some safety concepts the company’s parks may implement to open this year, including limiting capacity, virtual queue lines, cash-less transactions, and requiring guests to make a reservation before attending the park. Zimmerman said the parks would need two or three weeks to finalize plans, ramp up operations, and welcome guests once given the green light to open.
