Cedar Fair

American amusement park owner and operator

Cedar Fair L.P., also called the Cedar Fair Entertainment Company is a company that runs amusement parks in the United States and Canada. The company is headquartered inside their main park Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio.[1]


Cedar Point opened as a picnic area in 1870. The park went through a few owners during its early years. The park then wanted to build a new amusement park in Cambridge Township but the plans never went through. Three years later the park bought another park named Vallyfair. The name Cedar Fair comes from the names Cedar Point and Vallyfair. Cedar Fair was created in 1983.
