SANDUSKY, Ohio. (WWJ) – Cedar Point is offering thrill seekers and water lovers alike an early, virtual look inside the its new waterpark, opening for this spring/summer season.

Cedar Point Shores is scheduled to open on Saturday, May 27, 2017, featuring multiple new water slides, including Point Plummet — a six-story-tall, four-person aqua-drop body slide “that will simultaneously send four guests on a nearly vertical free fall when the floor drops out from under them. The four separate 400-foot-long slides will send riders through a series of flat loops and s-curves for an amazing water rush.”

Cedar Point is billing the waterpark’s new look as a throwback to a time when a visit to Cedar Point simply meant a day at the beach.
“Our history started as a simple bathing beach back in 1870, when it was all about cooling off and enjoying time together along the shore of Lake Erie,” said Jason McClure, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point. “The transformation of Cedar Point Shores puts all the pieces together – the connection to the lake, the mile-long Cedar Point Beach and thrilling water attractions. One day just isn’t enough to experience everything we’re offering this summer.”
