What to Expect with Cedar Point's Reopening Plan

Park: 10 AM - 8 PM | Waterpark: 11 AM - 6 PM | View Hours

Cedar Point Reopening Protocols

When Cedar Point reopens, we want you to have an awesome day and feel safe when visiting. Right now, it is our plan to continue to implement the COVID-19 safety protocols and processes that were in place during our limited park operation in 2020 until further guidance or changes are identified. We’re all in this together and by working together we know you can safely and confidently enjoy the thrills and fun that only Cedar Point can deliver this season.

This page provides you with essential information that was in place for our 2020 park operation and provides guidelines for what to expect and what to do before you arrive, what you’ll see and experience when you arrive, and how to make the most of your visit—safely—while you’re here.

Plan Ahead
All guests must plan for their visit in advance before coming to the park.

Mobile App Required
At least one member of your group must have the park mobile app on their phone.

Face Coverings Required
All guests and associates will be required to wear face coverings while in the park.

Health Screenings
Health screenings and temperature checks will be required for all guests and associates.

Hand Sanitization
Hand sanitizing stations have been added throughout the park.

Use of Location Services
Enabling the Location Services feature in the park app allows us to send you real-time updates.

Before You Leave Home

Cedar Point will open with limited capacity in the park so you can maintain proper social distancing from other guests. To ensure that happens, you will need to plan for your visit in advance. You will also need to provide information about the current health of family and friends coming with you to the park.

You should be prepared to bring the following items with you to the park when we reopen:

  • A valid Season Pass (physical card or digital version in the Cedar Point mobile app) or pre-paid ticket for each guest.
  • A face covering for each guest. Face coverings should completely cover the nose and mouth, and not have exhalation valves or vents, which allows virus particles to escape.
  • Contactless payment method (other than cash) such as credit card, Apple Pay, and Android Pay. 
  • A mobile phone with the Cedar Point app downloaded and "Location Services" enabled. At least one person in your group must have this, but we recommend as many guests as possible have the app downloaded to their mobile device.

When You Arrive

Our opening plan calls for arrival processes to prepare everyone for a safe and successful day at the park. Here’s what you’ll see and experience when you arrive at Cedar Point:

  1. At the Cedar Point parking tollbooth, we will ask you for proof of parking payment. If you do not have a parking voucher, you may pay with a cashless payment method such as a credit card, Apple Pay or Android Pay.
  2. As soon as you exit your vehicle, go ahead and put on your face covering and keep it on while at the park. Stay safe.
  3. Next, you’ll pass through a thermal screening tent where your temperature will be read. If anyone in your party has a temperature of 100.4°F / 38°C or higher, you will be directed to return home and reschedule your visit.
  4. At the gate, our Cedar Point bag and security policies remain in place.
  5. At our touchless turnstiles, scan your Season Pass or daily ticket inside the mobile app and let the fun begin!
  6. For everyone’s safety, all associates working in the park must complete a health assessment and temperature check each day before reporting to work as well. We’re all in this together!

When You're In the Park

  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Wear your face covering at all times. Face coverings should completely cover the nose and mouth, and not have exhalation valves or vents, which allows virus particles to escape.
