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!

Sometimes in the photos it does not seem like people are distancing, but in reality most were.

Two Coke Freestyle stations were operating with others closed for distancing. Sadly not a lot of flavor options available on day 1, but truthfully we just wanted water.

Magnum did open and it also ran with every other row open. In the back car, they opened up the back seat instead of the middle seat.

As we head out, we do want to say that while there is a lot to improve on, we truly had a great time. The park opened under enormous odds and very tough circumstances and we must state that most importantly we felt safe at all times. Masks were worn properly by most and social distancing was adhered to.
