CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cedar Point is updating their Soak City water park, renaming it Cedar Point Shores and adding 18-acres of new rides, more restaurants and shops, new cabanas and more. It is set to open in the summer of 2017.

The three rides start with the Point Plummet, a six-story-tall body slide that starts with the floor falling out from under the four riders and a nearly vertical free fall.

The second is the Starboard Surge & Portside Plunge, which are two, five-story tube slides attached to the Point Plummet that can take single riders or pairs.

The third is Lakeslide Landing, which is made up of 12, kid-sized water slides, giving parents a chance to relax while their kids play.

New food options include the Crystal Rock Café, which has flat breads, salads and more, as well as a dedicated food and beverage service at the new cabanas, which also feature free Wi-Fi, charging stations, TVs and more.

The park announced the new addition Thursday with a coordinated push across all of their social media pages. You can also win prizes to celebrate the new opening by following the park's social pages.

No word yet on whether this new water park is what is set to be replacing the Mean Streak, the wooden roller coaster that the park said would be torn down in September.
