Cedar Point just announced some big changes coming in May of 2023.

What's New At Cedar Point In 2023?

  • The Boardwalk joins Cedar Point as an entirely new area of the park.
    According to a press release, You’ll step into a modern-day take on the experience of yesteryear.Enjoy new ride experiences, including the Wild Mouse family coaster and revitalized family attractions, Cedar Point’s Grand Pavilion – a new dining venue, roaming entertainment, and the sights and sounds of our classic beachside resort. The Boardwalk is scheduled to debut on the park’s opening day in May 2023.
  • Wild Mouse Roller Coaster: The New Wild Mouse Coaster is a nod to the original (pictured below) and features six mouse-themed cars and one cheese-themed car. You become part of the adventure as you play the role of mouse or cheese.

Each 4-passenger car will climb 52 feet, crest the lift hill and begin a twisting, spinning, and wild journey along 1,312 feet of orange track. And because the Wild Mouse roller coaster’s free-form spinning action can change with the number of riders aboard each car, no two rides will be the same!

How Old Is Cedar Point?

Cedar Point opened to the public back in 1870. There was no roller coaster yet but It was used as a public bathing beach. The first passengers arrived at Cedar Point Resort on the Steamer, "Young Reindeer."

What Comes With The Cedar Point 2023 Gold Pass?

Guests can enjoy admission for the rest of the 2022 season and all of next summer at The Boardwalk with a 2023 Gold Pass, on sale for only $99 (plus applicable taxes and fees) for a limited time. The Gold Pass includes unlimited visits to Cedar Point and Cedar Point Shores Waterpark, free parking, in-park discounts, and unlimited visits to HalloWeekends

These new updates look fun and now that I've got a younger niece I'm sure will be taking a family trip down there next summer.
