Cedar Point amusement park, along with Soak City, Hotel Breakers, Sandcastle Suites and Lighthouse Point, will be closed Saturday, June 7 and Sunday, June 8 due to a water main break.

In a statement on the Cedar Point website, the park said, "Early this morning, the City of Sandusky experienced a water main break on the main line that supplies water to Cedar Point. The City of Sandusky is currently working to repair the system. Without our normal water supply, and due to safety concerns, the park is unable to open today. All guest tickets will be honored on future dates this season. Please visit cedarpoint.com for the latest updates."

After evaluating the situation, park officials decided this evening to close Sunday. Except for unforeseen circumstances, Cedar Point expects to resume normal operations on Monday.

"We continue to work with the City of Sandusky to restore water service to Cedar Point. The latest assessment is that the necessary repairs will require several more hours to complete. Once the water main is repaired, there are additional procedures that must be taken to restore water pressure to all areas on the property, and testing that must follow to ensure the systems are working properly and the appropriate water quality is established," Cedar Point officials said in a statement.
