SANDUSKY, Ohio (WXYZ) — Cedar Point announced Friday it is postponing its 150th anniversary celebration until 2021 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The announcement was the latest from the amusement park, and the reopening date is still uncertain.

According to Cedar Point, the team is working hard to ensure rides and attractions will be ready when the park is able to open.

On top of the anniversary celebration, attractions and festivities are also postponed until next year to respect social distancing.

Cedar Point had already announced the extension of all 2020 season passes and add-ons through 2021.

"The safety of our guests and associates has always been and will always be our top priority. We want to assure you that when we do open, Cedar Point will continue to be a safe and fun environment for all. Our team is 100% committed to this promise. And we are working alongside industry experts and government officials toward this shared goal. We will keep you updated as we move forward; in the meantime, we thank you for your loyalty and continued support," they said in a statement.
