Cedar Point, Kings Island offer new themed areas this year
Visitors to Cedar Point and Kings Island have new areas to explore this year, our friends at Axios Cleveland write.
Driving the news: The two Cedar Fair parks, which draw millions to Sandusky and Mason each year, are now open for the 2023 season.
The intrigue: Cedar Point debuted its Boardwalk area last weekend, which features several new and relocated rides along with a Grand Pavilion dining area.
- A notable addition is the new Wild Mouse roller coaster, which has spinning mouse-themed cars, speeds up to 35 mph and features a 52-foot-high lift hill. Watch a POV video aboard the ride.
Meanwhile, Kings Island is putting the finishing touches on a new Adventure Port area that will feature two spinning rides, brightly-colored theming and a burrito stand.
What we're watching: Cedar Point still hasn't announced plans for a reimagined Top Thrill Dragster coaster, though some park enthusiasts have detailed predictions.
Of note: The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has its own debut coming Memorial Day weekend: the 110-foot-tall Adventure Sky Wheel.
