We’re also introducing a new Smoking Policy. This summer, guests will be permitted to smoke in designated areas only.
The new areas are located near the Raptor restrooms, near the Panda Express restaurant, next to the Frontiertown train station, near the entrance to Paddlewheel Excursions and behind Giant Wheel near Wicked Twister.
Of course, just like with line jumpers, Some people will feel they are immune from this new rule, but way to go CP!!
Edited for 2Hostyl. (I knew that didn't sound quite right!) ;)

Now I can breathe fresh air and not have to dodge smoke clouds all day.
The park hasn't allowed smoking for years in queue lines. Fat lot of good that's done. Queues are relatively small areas, that have staff periodically watching them. What are the chances that this new policy will be enforced across acres of open concrete?
Personally, I view this as a non-event.
BTW:I fairly sure it's 'two snaps up in a circle' OR a 'Zorro snap in standard Z formation'. Kinda hard to make a Z with only two snaps...
--who watched way too much In Living Color
It was so nice being at the other parks--SFGAM, SFSTL, BB, IB, and not having to deal with that.
You're not thinking of Cedar Point, you're thinking of... every park ever.

Im a smoker and all for smoking sections. Some parks do it much better than others (Like not having them in the middle of a walkway and enough of them. Thats all I'll say about that.
Dodge and duck smoke clouds? Yet Im sure you never thing twice about starting your car to go five houses up the street.
There aren't enough employees and time to BE THE SMOKE POLICE just like their isn't enough cops to enforce some stupid frakin laws people have decided to pass..
Personally I find it much more anoying dealing with the GUM STUCK to my pants than a momentary thing that has very little if any effect on anyone except allergys.
Im in favor of smoking areas and enforcement but banning everything is not the answer. This is the USA You can't isn't in our vocabulary.
Some people must be living a under a bridge. Twenty years ago if you didn't get a wiff of a joint or in some cases get passed one in the line for THE BEAST. It just wasn't normal.
Im not a advocate of doing detrimental things. But it seems like all anyone has to do anymore is worry about everything but themselves.

I've smelled a few people "firing up" in parks, but the one that really stands out was the *employee* at LeSourdsville - in the open, on the midway...good times! ;)
P.S. jeremy..."too much" In Living Color...is that even possible?
I agree with your vehicle remark, they are destroying this earth as we know it.
I'm twenty three years old Charles and I have never owned a vehicle in my entire life. I am a huge fitness freak. If I go anywhere I ride my bike, run, jog, rollerblade or walk. I car pool when I go to work everyday. In Canada Charles, you cannot smoke in any food service buisness, public building, casino, movie theatre, ice rink, grocery store etc. You cannot smoke anywhere and the country is better off. My cousin brought me to a the casino in Buffalo accross the boarder from Niagra Falls. When you walk in that casino it's like stepping into a smoke stack and inhaling it for hours. "Great, isn't this fun." I started to weez when we left the building that night, thats what it did to my breathing.
They are charging eleven dollars for a twenty five pack of cigerettes her because they are killing so many people. We have warnings all over our packs. Canada loses like twenty thousand people a year just to lung cancer from smoking, not to mention strokes, second hand, heart disease, asthma etc. The list goes on. I understand for someone who has smoked for fifteen to thirty years of there life to be upset about everyone coming down on them about smoking, but the more we press on about the subject the better it is for everyone. Including you.
Education, not laws for non serious issues.
It comes down to there being too many laws designed to protect people from themselves when other laws having more significant impacts on society should be written, approved and enforced.
Some people are going to drink, some people are going to like porn, some people are going to like drugs and some people are going to smoke. Provided none of those things negatively impacts someone else, I don't see why people make such a big deal about it. There are people that actually want to make it illegal to smoke in your own house if you have visitors of any kind. That's insane.
There are still families in the southern states that teach there kids about the KKK throughout there whole childhood and they become very bad people.
Hey it's not just the South. Ignorance and bigotry exists everywhere you go, so pease don't single out just *this* part of the US for being the only place that type of behavior occurs.
I get more and more concerned when our "liberties" are infringed upon by majority rule. If the MAJORITY (or in this administration, the executive branch) was how individual civil rights and freedoms were decided, then we very well could find that it might become illegal to do LOTS of things we once took for granted....just because they're *unpopular*.
I'm NOT necessarily saying that smoking fits this description *in all contexts*....but it certainly has that potential....see: outlawing transfats.
