Cedar Point, Kings Island Get State Approval to Return

June 5, 2020, 3:47 PM · Amusement park operator Cedar Fair announced this afternoon that its two Ohio parks, Cedar Point and Kings Island, have been cleared to reopen following discussions with Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Lieutenant Governor John Husted.

The parks have not yet announced specific reopening dates.

"We will provide specific opening dates just as soon as we confirm details with the governor," the company said in statements posted to the Cedar Point and Kings Island websites. "We appreciate the cooperation and support of all those that are working hard to help us and the state of Ohio reopen."

The two parks yesterday filed suit against the director of the Ohio Department of Health after the governor issued a reopening order that included indoor theaters, family entertainment centers and zoos, but excluded amusement and theme parks.

Cedar Point previously announced that it would postpone its planned 150th anniversary celebration and new attractions until next year, following the delayed start of this season due to the pandemic. Kings Island was set this season to debut a new Bolliger & Mabillard giga coaster, Orion. That ride's opening date has not been announced.
