ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Coney Island’s 2021 season will open at 10 a.m., Monday, June 7, more than a week after a leaking water main near Sunlite Pool delayed the scheduled May 29 opening.

Officials announced Thursday that the leak had been repaired, and the park is ready to host visitors next week.

“Coney Island is excited to welcome guests for a 2021 season filled with new attractions and family favorites. We thank everyone for their patience as we worked to ensure a safe and top-notch experience in the Sunlite Water Adventure Area,” said Coney Island president Rob Schutter in a release.

Tickets are available online here. All tickets purchased for the dates that Coney Island was temporarily closed will be honored on any public operating day through the 2021 season.

The water park boasts new attractions for the upcoming season, including the Challenge Zone, the largest Aquaglide pool obstacle course in the nation, and Action Alley, which features a Jump Pad, Battle Cones, Connect 4 Basketball and more.

Coney Island said it will continue to implement "enhanced sanitation practices and guest policies" based on local and state pandemic guidelines.

The water park is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday.
