Cedar Point closed after a major water main broke in the area due to which officials had to shut down the nearby resorts and parks including Soak City for the weekend. The problem has been fixed after both the parks and resorts remained closed on Sunday and now everything will be back to normal from today as the parks and hotels will reopen to normal hours.
The water main break was on the line which was responsible for supplying the parks and as a result the visitors were left without any working plumbing and water. On Sunday afternoon when Cedar Point closed, the following statement was released;
"We are happy to announce that Cedar Point and Soak City will reopen on Monday, June 9. Normal park hours are 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. with Early Entry for Platinum Passholders and Cedar Point Resorts guests at 9 a.m.
The City of Sandusky has completed the necessary repairs to the main water line into Cedar Point.
Guests staying at Hotel Breakers, Lighthouse Point and Sandcastle Suites may purchase admission tickets beginning at 8 a.m. at these properties. Check-in will begin at 4 p.m.
In celebration of our reopening, we're offering a special money-saving deal to our valued guests - the H20 Offer! Buy a one-day Cedar Point admission ticket now through Sunday, June 15 and receive a FREE Soak City ticket! The Cedar Point one-day ticket for this offer is $39.99, a savings of $20 off the gate price and must be used by Sunday, June 15, 2014. Free Soak City ticket is valid for use any one day through September 1, 2014. Offer is available online only and not available at park ticket booths."
Since there were lots of visitors inside the park while this happened and officials had to close down the area, options were given to the guests to leave and get a full refund, to use their tickets at a future date or to take their tickets and redeem them at Wildwater Kingdom in Aurora or at Kings Island in Cincinnati that day. The Cedar Fair Entertainment Company owns both the parks and they quickly got word across to the visitors who were informed about the closing.
