Ohio’s amusement parks and water parks will be allowed to reopen June 19, Gov. Mike DeWine announced Friday.

The decision came about 24 hours after Cedar Point, Kalahari Resort, and Kings Island filed lawsuits against Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton for forcing their businesses to remain closed.

Sandusky-based Cedar Fair, which owns Cedar Point and Kings Island, has released extensive plans for keeping guests safe amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Kalahari Resort has also released similar plans, and its water park facility in Wisconsin is already open.
