Changes coming to Cedar Point next season

SANDUSKY, Ohio (13abc Action News) - Cedar Point announced Tuesday changes are coming to the amusement park starting next year.

Leaders say the first major change park-goers will notice is the absence of the Sandcastle Suites Hotel. The hotel's last guests checked out this past Sunday, said communications director Tony Clark in a blog post.

The hotel will be demolished over the winter along with the nearby Breakwater Cafe.

The Extreme Sports Stadium, located near Wicked Twister, will also be dismantled, Clark said.

Cedar Point also plans to expand its boardwalk to connect with the main parking lot.

The expansion will allow direct access to the Cedar Point Beach and Cedar Point Shores Waterpark, Clark said.

Extensive details on the planned changes are set to be released closer to the start of the 2018 season.
