SANDUSKY, Ohio – It’s early January in northern Ohio – it’s time to start thinking about summer vacation.
If Cedar Point is on your bucket list this year, you’ll have a few new places to consider if you’re planning on spending the night.
The amusement park is in the midst of major renovations to its Sawmill Creek and Castaway Bay properties, both of which are slated to reopen this year.
Work on the two stations was originally due to be completed last year. Both projects have been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic.
Park spokesman Tony Clark said station opening dates have not been set, but reservations are expected to be available in the coming weeks.
Cedar Fair, the parent company of Cedar Point, purchased Sawmill Creek in 2019. The resort, built in 1974, is located 7 miles east of the amusement park, on US 6. The 239 hotel Rooms sits on 235 acres, which features an 18-hole golf course, 28 acres of lakefront land, a marina, restaurants, swimming pools, and 50,000 square feet of meeting space.
Cedar Point has recently released numerous renderings of the property, which will include indoor and outdoor pools, a new restaurant called Miller’s Table, a renovated event space and more.
Castaway Bay is also undergoing a complete renovation and will feature a new nautical theme. The hotel, at the south end of the Cedar Point Causeway, is attached to a 38,000-square-foot indoor water park, which is not undergoing renovations.
The hotel has 237 guest rooms, multiple dining options, and a waterfront location on Sandusky Bay. The establishment is expected to open in the spring.
