As soon as the appropriate safety measures are taken to ensure social distancing and COVID-19 protocols are in place, Cedar Point, Kings Island and Kalahari will be reopening.
According to Richard Zimmerman, CEO of Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, “We plan to continue conversations with the governor and lieutenant governor to help reach a positive resolution for all parties. We also owe a big thank you to our local city, county and state officials who have assisted us throughout this process. The reopening of our parks is crucial to the economic viability of Erie County and Warren County, and we look forward to getting back to business and hope that other states will follow Ohio’s lead in reopening parks around the country.” (Source: WEWS-TV)
