Cedar Point is set to open a mysterious new attraction, The Forbidden Frontier, in late May.

"Forbidden Frontier on Adventure Island is an experiential attraction," Cedar Point Director of Communications Tony Clark wrote cryptically in a press release. "Some of it tangible, some intangible. It’s a story that begins with you."

The island attraction, which is replacing Dinosaurs Alive!, has "loose connections to Frontier Town"and is sadly not a new terrifying roller coaster but includes activities such as digging for treasure, farming, puzzles and embarking on secret missions.

Cedar Point announced Forbidden Frontier last October via Twitter and included a Wild West-style photo (see below).

The attraction is included in park admission starting May 25, although Opening Day is May 11. Hours will be 11 a.m., an hour after the park opens, to 7 p.m. daily until Sept. 2.

More information about the attraction, including a map of the frontier, are set to be revealed here.
