Cedar Point, Sandusky, Ohio, has announced a major change to the way guests gain access to three of the most popular roller coasters. To maintain social distancing at Maverick, Steel Vengeance and Millennium Force, riders will need a timed access pass to ride. Passes are available at each ride’s entrance.
A limited number of these access passes are available for each day. Guests without an access pass will not be able to join the line. Each access pass has a one-hour window in which guests need to return to access the ride's line.
Cedar Point reopened for its shortened season on July 9. It was originally slated to open for the 2020 season on May 9 but was delayed owing to the coronavirus pandemic.
Other park changes for this season include a mask requirement, limited capacity, reduced hours and enhanced cleaning.
All 2020 season passes and applicable add-ons have been extended through 2021, but early entry and bring-a-friend benefits will not be valid this year.
