SANDUSKY, Ohio — Cedar Point has more secrets in store for the 2020 season, and it won’t be long before we know details behind the biggest changes coming next year.
The Vice President and General Manager of Cedar Point, Jason McClure, announced Friday that the “biggest portion of new offerings” for the 2020 season will be revealed on Wednesday, Dec. 11.
“That date is no coincidence,” McClure said on Cedar Point’s blog. “It begins the 150-day countdown to our opening on Saturday, May 9.”
Why is 150 days important? Because the 2020 season also marks Cedar Point’s 150th anniversary.
But wait… There’s more.
McClure also teased that “some important improvements to the way you access and navigate the park” are coming for next year. He said more details on these additional upgrades will be announced in “bits and pieces” throughout the winter.
“We’ll be looking at changes inside the park to make your visit easier,” McClure said. “We’ll continue to grow our special events, enhance our food offerings, entertain you in new ways and improve the overall experience to ensure the time you have here together is as special and memorable as it can be.”
McClure's comments come just a few days after park spokesperson Tony Clark offered a 2020 tease about Cedar Point’s next “major announcement” back on Oct. 29.
“As I'm typing up and prepping for our next major announcement, it’s kind of crazy how much more new stuff we’re adding and creating to your experience in 2020," he wrote. This is going to be something special.”
Oh, and there was this little "sneak peek" from Clark earlier in the season:
So what does all this mean? If you're expecting a big roller coaster, it's probably not going to happen because construction would have already started by now.
Here’s what we know about the 2020 season so far.
Cedar Point will introduce a re-imagined river expedition ride in the spirit of the former Paddlewheel Excursions, which closed back in 2011. No additional details about this new attraction have been revealed just yet.
Some of the other previously announced additions for 2020 include:
- A fully immersive nighttime celebration along the Main Midway
- New food options, including throwback menu items from previous seasons
- Nostalgic souvenirs and merchandise
- A re-imagined Town Hall in Frontier Town
Meanwhile, Cedar Point also unveiled the full 2020 operating calendar Friday, which you can see here.
