SANDUSKY, Ohio — Amusement park Cedar Point announced Tuesday that it has canceled HalloWeekends this year amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.

According to Jason McClure, Vice President and General Manager of Cedar Point, the park will introduce a new “Tricks and Treats Fall Fest” starting Sept. 12, which will take the place of HalloWeekends for 2020 only.

The new event has been designed with unique entertainment, food and activities for all ages. McClure said the event will enable better social distancing and capacity management for the park.

Additionally, after Labor Day, Cedar Point will be open Saturdays and Sundays only, with the last operating day of the 2020 season expected to be Sunday, Nov. 1.

“We appreciate everyone’s support and cooperation with the park’s new health and safety measures – we are getting through this together,” McClure said in a statement.

All 2020 season passes for Cedar Point have been extended through the 2021 season.

Cedar Point was scheduled to celebrate its 150th anniversary this year, but that celebration has been postponed due to the pandemic.
