SANDUSKY, Ohio -- Cedar Point has reopened following a severe storm that knocked down three dozen utility poles and shut down the causeway to the park Sunday.

A microburst with straight line wind speeds topping out near 90 miles per hour caused extensive damage in Sandusky, including along the Cedar Point Causeway, according to an assessment by the National Weather Service.

The strong winds toppled 35 utility poles along the causeway Sunday afternoon, trapping about two dozen vehicles amid wires.

Ohio Edison crews worked to replace the damaged poles and restore power to the area.

Anyone with Fast Lane tickets from June 5 or June 6 can used them any day during the 2016 season at Cedar Point. They can also be used at the sister parks, Kings Island in Cincinnati and Michigan's Adventure in Muskegon.
