SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's most popular amusement park has been closed through the weekend because of a water main break.

Park officials closed Cedar Point on Saturday after the water main break in the city of Sandusky disrupted its primary water supply.

They say a lack of reliable water poses safety risks. Visitors' tickets will be honored on future dates this season.

Cedar Point sees more than 3 million visitors a year, making it the most visited amusement park in Ohio.

According to the website of owner Cedar Fair Entertainment Co., Cedar Point is believed to be the largest seasonal amusement park in the U.S. That's measured by the number of rides and attractions and the hourly ride capacity.

The park expects to reopen Monday.
