  7. forget the rumors,cedarfair allready said there won't be a major ride untill 2008. Cedar Point will stay Cedar Fair's flagship Thursday, May 25, 2006 2:16:26 AM By BRANDI BARHITE brandibarhite@sanduskyregister.com SANDUSKY - Cedar Point won't suffer as its parent company expands the family. The Sandusky-based amusement park and resort with the unique peninsula location will remain the flagship park, even with the addition of five parks, company officials promise. Cedar Point usually gets a bulk of the capital dollars, which will continue, said Dick Kinzel, president, chairman and chief executive officer, on Wednesday. Cedar Fair spends $50-60 million annually at its seven amusement parks and five waterparks annually. A capital plan will be in place for Paramount Parks for the 2008 season. For the 2003 season, Cedar Point got the $25 million Top Thrill Dragster. This year, it got $7-8 million for improvements, which includes the giant swing, Skyhawk. Stacy Frole, director of investor relations, said Cedar Point is really the only park in the Cedar Fair chain that has a number of hotels right on the property. Cedar Point is a multiple-night stay amusement park, she said. Kinzel said the 1,400 hotel rooms at Cedar Point resort are a great reason to keep bringing new attractions to the park. The partnership doesn't want empty rooms, he said. None of the five newly acquired Paramount Parks have lodging with the exception of Kings Island where a Great Wolf Lodge is being built, Kinzel said. The $1.24 billion acquisition of Paramount announced on Monday did not include the indoor waterpark at Kings Island, near Cincinnati, Ohio. CBS, who owned the Paramount Parks, is maintaining its stake in Great Wolf. There's nothing like Cedar Point, Kinzel said. The Sandusky Bay on one side; Lake Erie on the other. When guests are driving to the park they see the water and steel in the air, he said. "A park like Cedar Point can justify a major new attraction every two or three years," Frole said. Cedar Fair parks, Geauga Lake, Aurora, Ohio, and Knott's Berry Farm, near Los Angeles, have some lodging. "Cedar Point will remain the flagship," said Beth Robertson, vice president of communications for the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions. "It will remain the destination." Robertson said Paramount's Carowinds, near Charlotte, N.C., is a destination as well because of the weather and the park being half in South Carolina and North Carolina. "It's a fun hook," she said. Even so, Kinzel said, "Cedar Point is on a peninsula. It is just a beautiful piece of property."
  8. I just wanted to say,you did a great job on the photos,of the new waterpark!

We are currently working on a show called "Them Park Secrets" which is a 3-part series for the Travel Channel. We will be coming to Kings Island in Ohio the week of June 22nd. We will most likely be there on June 27th. We are doing a behind-the-scenes look at Tomb Raider. I am writing to you because we are looking for people to participate in the show. Basically, we follow people as they ride the attraction and then interview them afterwards. The day will include free admission to the park. Once we are done filming participants may continue to spend the day at King's Island. Please let me know if anyone in your organization would be interested. If so they may contact me via email along with a photo of themselves. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you. Gretchen Miller Researcher Morningstar Entertainment 350 N. Glenoaks Blvd. Suite 300 Burbank, CA 91502 818-559-7255 tele 818-559-7551 fax gmiller@morningstarentertainment.com
