In a strange turn of events, theme parks are suing the state so they can reopen. In Ohio, Governor Mike Dewine has given the green light to open several types of attractions including zoos, aquariums, movie theaters and museums.
However, theme parks like Cedar Point and Kings Island (owned by Cedar Fair) are still in limbo on when they can reopen. According to media reports, these local parks have actually filed a lawsuit against the state of Ohio from blocking them to reopen.
In a separate lawsuit, Kalahari Resort (famous for their indoor water parks) have also pushed the state of Ohio to reopen. As many of these businesses rely on the summer season, pushing a reopen date would make it worth opening at all during the 2020 season.
As of the writing of this article, the state has not responded to the lawsuit.
