    Matt Ouimet, chief executive of Cedar Fair Entertainment Co., greets a guest at Cedar Point amusement park, in Sandusky, Ohio, on July 2, 2014.


SANDUSKY — Amusement park visitors to the “Roller Coaster Capital of the World” can expect slightly longer wait times to pass through new metal detectors.

Cedar Fair LP, the parent firm of Cedar Point, added another level of security to all of its parks.

Cedar Point spokesman Tony Clark said the process for passing through metal detectors should go quickly.

Cedar Point will open Saturday with a newly expanded water park called Cedar Point Shores. It has the second-most roller coasters in the world behind Six Flags Magic Mountain in Clarita, Calif.
