Cedar Point, the 364-acre amusement park in Ohio, has announced it will launch a new attraction in 2020, a boat ride known as the Snake River Expedition.
In what will be the amusement park’s 150th anniversary, the boat ride will involve guests boarding scientifically designed riverboats and travelling along the Snake River that surrounds Forbidden Frontier on Adventure Island.
Interacting with real-life actors and animatronic machines, guests will embark on a secret mission. Led by a member of Trapper Dan’s crew, visitors will smuggle treasure into safe waters.
The new attraction is resonant of Cedar Point’s paddle boat and Western Cruise rides of the past.
Colleen Brady, Cedar Point’s director of park operations, commented: “We have really cool boats that were built specifically for Cedar Point. We got a little bit of history, a little bit of new. The best thing about these boats is that everyone can ride them.”
The park’s vice president and general manager, Jason McClure, said Cedar Point could not mark its 150th anniversary without a new ride. “We wanted a ride that complimented our history and engaged the whole family together with Cedar Point,” said McClure.
