Cedar Point announces new water park coming in 2017

(Cedar Point)

SANDUSKY, OH (WCMH) — Big changes are coming to Cedar Point’s Soak City, along with a new name.

Cedar Point announced Thursday that Soak City will transform into the brand new 18-acre Cedar Point Shores Water Park.

With the new name, three new water attractions will open.

  • 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.
  • Starboard Surge & Portside Plunge – located on the same structure as Point Plummet, these two, five-story tube slides can accommodate guests riding alone or with a friend and will send them through an enclosed tunnel before shooting them out into the sun through intense drops and turns.
  • Lakeslide Landing – a new family splashground with 12 kid-sized water slides that line the perimeter of a zero-depth-entry pool, giving kids their own mini water thrills while parents can relax under shade structures and enjoy an oversized lounge and sun deck area.

The park plans to makeover the existing slides and give them new names and branding.

Other new features include a new restaurant, entrance, poolside bar and updated cabanas.

Hotel Breakers, Cedar Point’s hotel located right next to Cedar Point Shores, is also growing. an additional six-story tower will be added to the property, adding 158 rooms.
