Cedar Point Opening Day 2020

Cedar Point Photos Taken: 07/09/2020 Posted: 07/13/2020

In this photo update, we take you around Cedar Point to show what a 'new normal' visit to America's Roller Coast looks like. Generally, it's still the Cedar Point you know and love, but at least early on, the park is severely understaffed which can put a damper on a park visit.

All things considered, we're thrilled to see the park open for its historic 150th year!

The newness at the park started as soon as we entered the causeway. New signage overhead steers drivers into one of two lanes.

In this photo are actually three new things. The carousel was refurbished, French Quarter Confections is in the middle and Hurricane Hannah's has been turned into a fastlane / drink plan redemption center.

The park is currently not selling FastLane passes. Good for us and our all season FastLane, but not so much for park guests claiming to be unaware of the change in policy.

Another view at the refurbished carousel. There is a new organ, but sadly there are speaker's piping midway music right beside it.

The park is operating under a reduced hour schedule. Midway games don't open with the park and not all are open.
