If your family cannot pass up a visit to a theme park, you’ll want to make tracks for Cedar Point next year, as well as to some of Cedar Fair Entertainment Company’s other properties throughout North America, because the brand is gearing up to unveil some record-breaking coasters.
In Cedar Point, in northern Ohio, visitors can experience Top Thrill 2, the world’s tallest and fastest triple-launch strata roller coaster when it debuts in 2024. In Dorney Park, in Pennsylvania, guests can try the Northeast’s first dive coaster ever, also next year. Another “first” makes a splash in Texas, as Schlitterbahn opens the world’s first water coaster specifically designed for kids.
Beyond these industry landmark additions to the parks, venues throughout the Cedar Fair portfolio will also make other updates and add new fun, new food and new events in 2024.
“The investments we have made in our parks over the past several years have improved the guest experience and contributed to record guest satisfaction ratings, and we intend to build on that success in 2024,” said Richard Zimmerman, president and CEO, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company. “Making people happy is what our parks do best, and with 2024 season passes now on sale, we’re more excited than ever about the year ahead. Whether you’re a rabid fan of sky-high coasters and water slides, a food lover on the prowl for something unique or a lifelong devotee of great festivals and live entertainment, you’ll find something to enjoy at our parks in 2024.”
