Cedar Point announced today (8/18/16) the big transformation of Soak City into the new Cedar Point Shores Water Park, the addition of new rooms at Cedar Point's Express Hotel and more.

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.

The most important additions you'll find are the all-new attractions including:

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.

Also making its debut in 2017 will be the previously-announced Sports Force Parks at Cedar Point Sports Center which is expected to open in March. The Sports Force Park will be located three miles from Cedar Point and will include a state-of-the-art youth sporting complex that will feature multiple fields for soccer, baseball and lacrosse. It will also provide fun for families who attend tournaments, like miniature golf, a ropes challenge course, trampoline structures, food & merchandise options and more.
