Cedar Point Shores (formerly Soak City) is a water park located adjacent to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. It is owned and operated by Cedar Fair.


The waterpark opened as Soak City in 1988 adjacent to Cedar Point. The original complex consisted of 10 slides. In 1990, Main Stream and Tadpole Town were added. In 1995, Zoom Flume, Renegade River and Choo-Choo Lagoon were added. A 6.5-acre addition in 1997 included a 22,500-sq. ft. wave pool, an action slide area with three twisting enclosed inner tube raft slides, an activity pool section with various interactive water elements and an adult activity area with whirpools and a swimup refreshment center. SplasH20, an interactive water structure was added in 2004. All the water slides in the main complex were repainted for the 2012 season, also a new Mat Racer, Dragster H2O (Now known as "Riptide Raceway"), was added for the 2012 season. On August 18, 2016, Cedar Point has announced that Soak City would be renamed to Cedar Point Shores, and will be expanded to include a slide complex, and a new family Splashground called Lemmy's Lagoon, replacing the old Choo Choo Lagoon that was demolished. The Surf Shop was also demolished. A new building was built for the merchandise. All current slides were renamed according to the Cedar Point Shores Website.
