In 1870, a small park opened on the shores of Lake Erie, and in 2021 the mega-coaster-filled theme park celebrated its 150th anniversary. This year, the season will kick off with new offerings that build on the park as a multi-day destination.
Cedar Point Resorts debut two renovated hotel properties
Castaway Bay indoor water park hotel – The resort has undergone a multi-million-dollar renovation, receiving new dining options, activities such as mini bowling, and 10 family-friendly attractions at the water park. Gordy the sea turtle and his friends will be on hand to meet guests, too. Castaway Bay will open for the season in May.
Sawmill Creek – A 10-minute drive from the amusement park, Sawmill Creek is surrounded by 200 acres of woodland and has been completely renovated and transformed. Guests can enjoy new dining opportunities, the 18-hole Tom Fazio-designed golf course, a pool, and the Lake Erie Marina. The resort will open in summer.
Guests at each of these resort hotels also receive the Early Entry to Cedar Point benefit, and special ticketing packages only available to guests.
New Cedar Point dining outlets
The Farmhouse Kitchen & Grill – Set amid Frontier Town, this down-home restaurant serves up a variety of hand-made dishes, including roasted corn ribs, house-made chili, char-roasted flank steak with chimichurri, roasted seasonal vegetables, crunchy hushpuppies, cast iron brownie-a-la-mode, and more. The park’s culinary team will also present rotating specialty items.
Dine outdoors on the new seating space with a view of Fronter Town, and enjoy a variety of entertainment on the outdoor stage, taking place at select times throughout the summer.

Peanuts @ The Point – Snoopy and the gang have taken over the former Snoopy Boutique on the Main Midway, rethemed as Peanuts @ The Point. The shop will carry apparel, collectibles, plush toys, and park-exclusive Peanuts merchandise.
Celebrate Cedar Point with a new parade
Celebrate Cedar Point Parade & Spectacular – Relive the park’s history as the “Celebrate Cedar Point Parade & Spectacular’s” 12 massive floats travel along the Main Midway, highlighting major moments and park-wide landmarks.
