I was just looking at the 1989 brochure for Soak City at Cedar Point. It showed that Soak City used to be open the first week in May and was open in October. Sandusky is a little chilly this early and late in the season. Anyone, remember going there back then? Were there alot of people in the Water Park?

I've got one word for this: Shrinkage.

Well, considering I was there in June of last year during a quite rainy weekday where the temps were rather chilly...
...I was still dumb/brave enough to try out Soak City... and ya know what?? It's a HELL of a lot more fun than it is in the 90+ degree weather.
Every single slide (except 1 complex) was totally heated. It's like total bliss when stepping in the rushing water at the top of the slide & a lot more fun to splash down in the pool below knowing that the water temperature is like 80 or 90 degrees while it's all cold & chilly outside.
Man, good times.... goooood times. Not to mention that with less of a crowd, you can just run up and slide again w/ little to no wait.
My guess is that this is how it was in '89's Soak City with hot water in the May & Oct months.

I think it would help if they "sold" the fact that the pools are heated. When you step up to the tubes on Eerie Falls, you can just feel that blast of warm wet air coming up at you. Good stuff, even on a cool day.

Now see...that's interesting. I've been to CP every year since SC opened and I never new the water was heated....I always find myself saying (on a chilly day) "Man...I wouldn't go there today!"
They should really advertise that it's heated water!

Maybe they're afraid people will get in and not want to get *out* when it's closing time. ;)

I can remember going to Soak City on a chilly day one time and I think it was before they expanded with the lazy river, so the park was just slides. It was nice when you were in the water, but when you got out of the water you had to run up to the top again as fast as you could so that you could get back in the warm water.

CP should stay open a few more weekends into November and December. Maybe call it "Cool Weekends." j/k lol I never knew the water was heated at SC.
