Cedar Fair sets new attendance mark at its amusement parks

SANDUSKY, Ohio – Amusement park operator Cedar Fair Entertainment says it brought in a record number of visitors in 2015.

The Ohio-based company says 24.4 million people passed through the gates at its 14 theme parks and water parks last year. That’s up by 1.1 million visitors compared with 2014.

Cedar Fair’s amusement parks include Knott’s Berry Farm near Los Angeles, Canada’s Wonderland outside Toronto and Cedar Point along Lake Erie in Ohio.

The company says it also saw a big increase in guest spending outside its parks thanks to the renovation of the Hotel Breakers along Cedar Point’s beach in Sandusky.
