ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Coney Island's 2021 season opening has been delayed by approximately 10 days due a leaking water main in the pool area, the water park announced Thursday.
The park was originally scheduled to open its season Saturday.
Officials said the leak emerged on Tuesday, and "a team has been working to identify and rectify the issue" since then. Sunlite Pool had to be "significantly drained" for repairs and to refill the pool.
“We are very disappointed that we will not able to open this week as originally expected, but we’re excited to welcome our guests back for an outstanding 2021 season as soon as possible,” Coney Island president Rob Schutter said in a news release.
All tickets purchased for the dates that Coney Island is closed will be honored on any public operating day throughout the rest of the season. Tickets are still available online.
When it opens, Coney Island said it will continue to implement "enhanced sanitation practices and guest policies" based on local and state pandemic guidelines.
