Soak City Water Park Splashes Into 2000

Sandusky, OH -- Looking for the perfect way to "cool off" this summer? Cedar Point's Soak City water park is just the cure for those hot summer days.

Located adjacent to the popular amusement park/resort, Soak City is an 18-acre water playland that features more than a dozen thrilling speed, body and inner tube slides, two relaxing inner tube rivers, two fun-filled play areas just for kids, a gigantic 500,000-gallon wave pool and an adults-only swim-up refreshment center. Water enthusiasts who want to spend the entire day in the water park will also appreciate the convenient picnic area, rental lockers to store "dry" items, refreshment stands offering drinks and food-to-go, shower and rest room facilities and merchandise store for those forgotten items.

Soak City is open daily through Labor Day, Sept. 4. Operating hours vary throughout the season. Admission to Cedar Point is not required. Proper swimwear is required for admission to Soak City.

In the Cedar Point Marina, the newly remodeled Bay Harbor restaurant has undergone a complete renovation for the 2000 season. New improvements to the fine-dining waterfront restaurant include a redesigned dining room with a raised center section to provide a more intimate dining experience, booth-style and free standing seating arrangements and many other amenity upgrades, along with an expanded lobby/lounge area and remodeled rest room facilities. Guests will also enjoy the new lighting, nautical décor, sound system and additions to the mouth-watering menu of fresh seafood and other favorites at this year-round Lake Erie restaurant. New menu items include steak au-poivre, herb crusted lamb chops, veal marsala, sea scallops, and new pasta dishes such as chicken malibu and captain's pasta bowl. Bay Harbor is now open daily serving dinner at 5 p.m. The lounge opens at 4 p.m. (Footwear and proper attire required. No bathing suits, tank tops or cutoffs allowed.)

For guests who aren't sure if they are ready to conquer the new $25 million Millennium Force, the tallest and fastest roller coaster on the planet, then this summer's live entertainment lineup is sure to get your feet taping and leave you dancing on the midway. Fans of the silver screen will enjoy "Movies, Movies, Movies," a musical tribute to Hollywood, performed in the Centennial Theatre near the main entrance. In Lusty Lil's Palace, located in Frontiertown, guests will enjoy the patriotic sites and sounds of "America," a 25-minute musical salute to this wonderful land of ours. The Red Garter Saloon, along the Frontier Trail, caters to a wide variety of musical interests with "The Big 80's," featuring the decade's top tunes, and "Hot Country Nites." In Camp Snoopy, younger guests will be able to share the fun with their favorite PEANUTS characters at "Campground Capers," "Birthday Blast" and "Campground Karaoke." New this year in the Cedar Point Cinema is "Alien Adventure," a fun-filled look at what happens when aliens from a computer-generated galaxy land at a virtual theme park. Before selected showings of "Alien Adventure," guests will be treated to the rhythmic sounds of "Krash, Boom, Bang," featuring the Krash Test Drummies. (Both shows presented by FirstEnergy, the official energy supplier of Cedar Point.)

Back by popular demand will be "Splash!," an inventive and entertaining 20-minute high diving demonstration. "Splash!," presented by Meijer, Inc., and Huggies, features Olympic-caliber divers as they display their skills in a fun and educational program the whole family will enjoy. The show culminates in a thrilling high dive from an 80-foot-tall perch that will leave the audience in awe. "Splash!" can be seen in the Aquatic Stadium, located along the shores of the Cedar Point Beach, daily through Aug. 27, plus Sept. 2, 3 and 4.
