Cedar Point Announces 2017 Additions!

Cedar Point actually made three big announcements today! So 2017 will be a huge year for Cedar Point (Spoiler alert: Mean Streak isn’t getting RMC’d this year. Sorry guys, but they are making tons of huge improvements!)

We’ll start off with the new attractions:

“Big waves are coming in 2017!

Announcing the new Cedar Point Shores Water Park! It’s 18 acres of splish-splashin family fun, featuring three completely new water attractions, upgrades to food and merchandise locations, new cabanas and so much more.

NEW Ways to Cool Off

You’ll find all-new attractions designed for big thrills and little thrills.

Point Plummet – It’s a six-story-tall aqua-drop body slide that will simultaneously send four riders on a nearly vertical free fall when the floor drops out from under them!

Starboard Surge & Portside Plunge – Located on the same structure as Point Plummet, these two, five-story tube slides can accommodate single riders or pairs and sends them through an enclosed tunnel before shooting them out into the sun through intense drops and turns.

Lakeslide Landing – A family splashground of epic proportions! There’s 12, kid-sized water slides that line the perimeter of a zero-depth-entry pool, giving kids their own mini water thrills while parents can relax under shade structures and enjoy an oversized lounge and sun deck area.

The new Crystal Rock Cafe will cook up delicious food items guests won’t be able to resist. The menu includes food items like:

  • Fresh-baked flat breads (caprese, buffalo mac & cheese and more)
  • Farm salad options (crispy chicken BLT, Asian chicken and chicken Caesar)
  • Pesto-glazed grilled chicken sandwiches
  • Fresh-breaded chicken tenders
  • Waffle fries
  • Tater tots
  • Cheeseburgers
  • Bratwurst
  • Loaded potato wedges

 

NEW Ways to Chill

The all-new cabanas, located on both sides of the massive wave pool, receive upgrades like free Wi-Fi, charging stations, ceiling fans, TVs and dedicated food and beverage service. The cabanas can accommodate friends, families or even family reunions!

More New Upgrades

Cedar Point Shores will receive a completely new entrance gate, a new poolside bar, new family changing/showering areas, more lounge chairs, additional shade, improved landscaping and unobstructed views of Lake Erie.”

Next we’ll get into the first of two lodging announcements:

“Cedar Point’s historic Hotel Breakers is growing yet again!

Fresh off of a complete renovation in 2015, an additional six-story tower will be added to the classic beachfront property. The new tower will match the beautiful exterior of the existing hotel and will house 158 guest rooms with many of them configured as connecting family suites. A new outdoor pool area will also make its debut alongside the tower. Construction on the addition will begin after Labor Day and will continue through the 2017 season. It will open to new guests in time for the summer of 2018.

With the new tower, Hotel Breakers will have a total of 669 rooms, making it one of the largest hotels on the Great Lakes – and the love for the property keeps growing. Hotel Breakers has been voted one of the “Top 25 Hotels for Families” by readers of TripAdvisor and is just steps away from both Cedar Point and the new Cedar Point Shores Water Park.

Guests who stay at the Cedar Point Resorts receive the best benefits – Early Entry, allowing access to Cedar Point one hour before the general public to ride some of the biggest attractions, the best deal on park admission tickets (tickets that include free admission to Cedar Point Shores for the length of their chosen 1-day, 2-day or 3-day ticket) and of course, the closest rooms to the world’s greatest collection of rides.

Details on rates and reservations for the 2017 season will be available in early fall.”

And finally, a complete renovation of Breakers Express!

“Coming in 2017, Breakers Express receives a complete makeover and transforms into Cedar Point’s Express Hotel! 69 new rooms will be added to the popular overnight haven. All guest rooms feature two queen beds and will be completely renovated with new bathrooms and bedding, mini fridges, microwaves and connecting family suites for additional time to spend together.

In the center of the property, a new splash pad and an outdoor courtyard featuring conversational living spaces will join the whimsical swimming pool and relaxing deck area.

Construction on Cedar Point’s Express Hotel is already in progress and will last throughout the winter.
