SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) - Construction crews have begun demolishing a major portion of a hotel that opened in 1905 at the Cedar Point amusement park in northwest Ohio.

Cedar Point says the demolition of part of its Hotel Breakers is being done to make way for a new grand entrance for the building as part of a two-year renovation. Some of the planned changes and upgrades will include newly-furnished and remodeled rooms, new furniture and an outdoor water play area.

Cedar Fair Entertainment Company owns the park and operates four hotels near the park in Sandusky.

The Sandusky-based company announced in December 2012 that it planned to spend about $60 million over three years to spruce up the hotels and hoped the improvements would pay off with longer visits.
