On October 24, 2017, Cedar Point announced that the last guest had officially checked out of Sandcastle Suites Hotel. Sandcastle opened in 1990 as a new beach front hotel.
The removal of Sandcastle Suites along with the near by Breakwater Cafe is a bit surprising. Over the past few years a lot of money has been spent on the resort side of the park
With these long time park landmarks out of the way, it leaves room for an interesting future for Cedar Point. Removing the stadium is part of an ongoing plan to open up the views of the beach that was blocked as the park expanded in the 1980's and 90's. While we don't know for sure what will replace these attractions, we do know that a boardwalk will be built connecting the main parking lot with Cedar Point Shores Waterpark.
