Cedar Point Shores is located on the shore of beautiful Lake Erie and Cedar Point's mile-long beach. Formerly Soak City this 18-acre water park underwent an extensive transformation in 2017 to become Cedar Point Shores.
Sporting a new theme to match its lakefront surroundings, the renovation included three completely new water attractions, new and upgraded food and merchandise locations and more.
Cedar Point Shores Water Park offers more than a dozen thrilling water and tube slides, a large half-million gallon wave pool, action river, lazy river, three kids areas and much more.
Some of the popular attractions at this waterpark are Storm Surge, a 76-foot tall, family raft ride; Breakwater Bay, the 500,000 gallon wave pool with three to four foot surf; and Runaway Rapids, a wild action river through canyons and exciting waterfalls. Perch Plunge are three classic serpentine water slides and Wild Walleye are exciting, individual tube slides.
Recently added rides include Point Plummet, a six-story tall tower with four 400-foot long enclosed speed slides, each with an aqua-drop pod that sends you into a near vertical free fall when the floor drops out beneath you. Starboard Surge & Portside Plunge are two single or double rider tube slides that finish with a single or double down drop finale into a splash pool.
There are also plenty of activities to keep youngsters entertained with three kids areas– Waterin' Hole, Lakeside Landing and Lemmy's Lagoon. Lakeside Landing has 12 kid-sized water slides lining a zero-depth entry pool.
As part of the renovation the water park added a new main entrance, new family changing–showering areas, more lounge chairs, additional shade, improved landscaping, and unobstructed views of Lake Erie. For adults, the park offers a poolside bar where you can enjoy a drink while the children play.
Cedar Point Shores Water Park is adjacent to Cedar Point amusement park just outside the resort entrance to the park and positioned besides the historic Hotel Breakers.
