Cedar Point is open for the summer season, but currently, the park is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, at least through June 23.

Now, Cedar Point CEO Richard Zimmerman says expects the park to go back to normal hours later this month, thanks to increased staffing after a labor shortage.

As reports, Zimmerman announced the news at the 2021 Goldman Sachs Travel & Leisure Conference, stating that the park’s move to offer a $20 an hour wage for employees has resulted in new and better applicants.

As previously report, for this season, the park has discontinued temperature checks and face covering requirements for those outdoors, although they encourage coverings for guests who are not fully vaccinated.

Reservations are still required for Cedar Point and Cedar Point Shores Waterpark for both season passholders and single day ticketholders will need reservations.
