Park News - (10/30/19) While Cedar Fair just bought the Sawmill Creek Resort near Cedar Point earlier this year, the company has announced that the resort will close down next month to undergo a massive renovation. There is no exact date for Sawmill Creek to reopen, but they expect it to be ready sometime between late-Spring and Summer 2020.
(8/30/19) Good news for Cedar Point fans, as I’m hearing that Top Thrill Dragster has been up and running once again for the past couple of days. (Update: And then down again during the fall..., check with the park for the current status before you visit).
(8/12/19) For several days now we have seen reports that Top Thrill Dragster has been sitting closed at Cedar Point. Now Cedar Point’s Twitter account has confirmed that Top Thrill Dragster may be closed for awhile as they are now waiting on a part to arrive from the ride’s manufacturer (which is Intamin) and that “We do not have an estimated time for reopening.”
Since Top Thrill Dragster has been open since 2003, hopefully this won’t “ruin” any planned trips to visit The Point, but we get it… it is always disappointing when any major ride is down, especially if this is going to be your first ever visit. In the end, all machines break down from time to time, it’s all part of the biz, and trust me… Cedar Point is probably even more update that Dragster is down than you are.
2020 - 150th Anniversary / Mystery New Attraction? - (11/9/19) Cedar Point says that they are set to make their ‘biggest’ announcement for the 2020 season on December 11th, so stay tuned!
(11/1/19) While Knott’s just leaked out that something was in the works between Knott’s Berry Farm and Triotech last week regarding a new unannounced 2020 attraction, Cedar Point has also begun teasing a forthcoming announcement for the 2020 season as well. At this point it is safe to say that it won't be a major roller coaster or thrill ride, as there would have been signs of construction already. That said… during the announcement about the 150th Anniversary celebration, they did drop a hint about some kind of new “river” expedition experience would be
announced in the future.
It does make me wonder if the partnership with Triotech could be two-fold… with some kind of virtual or interactive dark ride experience being developed somewhere indoors and away from prying eyes.
(8/20/19) Cedar Point shared early information about the park’s 2020 season, claiming that they will celebrate the park’s 150th Anniversary next season. There will be a variety of new and special “throwback” food items in the park, a collection of nostalgic merchandise items, a new nighttime celebration and displays about the park’s history.
There was also a hint about a possible new attraction, claiming that details about a new “river” expedition would be revealed at a future date. Oh, and the park is also selling an annual “Gold” level pass to the park for just $99.
