Cedar Point has (reportedly)announced that tickets are being honored at Wild Water Kingdom (their water park that is all that's left of Geauga Lake in Aurora, Ohio), and at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio (about 4 1/2 hours away). I don't know if they will honor them only today or throughout the summer.
This is a really changing situation and I'll find out when I can (when I'm not mowing the lawn today).
As for the water main issue... I wonder if the city or insurance will recoup some of CP's losses for the day. I am guessing upwards of 20k people would have been spending money in the park today....
Not being able to take a shower, flush the toilet, or get a drink of water out of the faucet in your hotel room is not a disaster. They've been without water for a day, so it's not a health and safety crisis either. Furthermore, we all know that the theme park is well stocked with bottled water. If a guest were in dire need of water there is plenty to be had.
Please give it a rest! It's valid news to report that Cedar Point is closed on a Saturday, but let's not portray this situation as something that it is not.
We had plans to visit Put-in-Bay today anyway, so we just left the hotel and park around 10:00AM. There was the usual line of cars heading into the park up the Causeway but we had a feeling that the day might not play out well for them.
