Cedar Point announces required reservations when park opens in May: What season passholders need to know

Cedar Point is scheduled to open its gates for the 2021 season on May 14.

SANDUSKY, Ohio — Editor's Note: The interview with Cedar Point GM Carrie Boldman was excerpted from an exclusive conversation our Sara Shookman had with Boldman about her new role/the year ahead. That interview will be seen in an upcoming Boss Ladies segment on Front Row.

As Cedar Point prepares to open for the 2021 season next month, park officials have announced that reservations will be required for all guests before visiting the park until further notice. Online reservations can be made HERE.

“You will need a reservation for each passholder for entry into Cedar Point and Cedar Point Shores, every time you plan to visit,” park officials said in an e-mail that was sent to season passholders Monday.

Passholders who have booked a night at Hotel Breakers, Lighthouse Point or Express Hotel will have guaranteed park entry during their stay.

The park said they have developed an “extensive amusement park reopening plan” with processes and enhanced procedures for COVID-19 safety throughout the park.

“This includes managing socially distant capacity in both the amusement park and water park, following the guidance from local and state health officials at this time.”

Cedar Point has since updated their COVID-19 safety protocols ahead of the 2021 season. Among the changes? Masks are no longer required on rides. Read all of the park's COVID policy changes HERE.
