(WJBK) - Cedar Point announced Thursday its transforming Soak City into a full-on water park in 2017.
The 18-acre park will be called Cedar Point Shores, and will include three new water attractions.
- Point Plummet is 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 will be 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 will be a family splashground with 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 water park’s existing slides and attractions will receive makeovers as well, with most receiving new names highlighting the unique beachside location.
The food at the water park is getting an overhaul, too.
Cedar Point says new menu includes items include fresh-baked flat breads, farm stand salad options, pesto-glazed grilled chicken sandwiches, fresh-breaded chicken tender,; cheeseburgers, bratwurst, waffle fries, tater tots and more.
Cedar Point Shores will also get a new main entrance, a new poolside bar, new family changing/showering areas, more lounge chairs, additional shade, improved landscaping and unobstructed views of Lake Erie.
Cedar Point is rolling out details on its social media. They tweeted out this photo showing the new Point Plummet ride.
