One Company with One Mission: Fun for All
Cedar Fair is a world leader in owning and operating regional amusement parks and water parks, complemented with resort, hotel and recreational properties dispersed throughout the lower 48 states and near Ontario, Canada. We’ve cornered the market on fun, as reflected in our ticker symbol - NYSE: FUN.
Annually our parks welcome approximately 28 million guests and our company generates revenues of more than $1.3 billion.
Proud Heritage, Bright Future
In 1870 a few folks opened a bathing beach, boat dock, and dance hall on Lake Erie. The purpose? Fun.
Those ventures in fun were the birth of today’s Cedar Fair, now a world-class purveyor of fun as owner and operator of 11 regional amusement parks, four water parks, two sports destinations, more than 2,300 overnight accommodations, and dozens of restaurants. In addition to delivering fun, we seek to be community partners of choice by extending meaningful education and employment opportunities to more than 40,000 people at more than two dozen locations.
Join us. The fun’s just getting started.
Beyond the Rides and Slides
Cedar Fair is far more than a collection of world-class thrill rides and water slides. When guests choose to spend their time with us, they are additionally rewarded with immersive live entertainment, and unique events, delicious food beyond classic carnival treats, and unforgettable character encounters they can’t get anywhere else. When guests want to stay where they play, Cedar Fair welcomes them with a wide array of lodging options.
Entertainment teams at each location and at corporate not only design, choreograph and stage one-of-a-kind productions for families, adults and kids; they curate the hottest acts across the country - from buskers to extreme sports athletes - to perform in parks and resorts. For our guests, this means that even non-riders can have a great time at any property.
We love funnel cakes as much as the next person. But there’s so much more to the food at Cedar Fair. Executive chefs at every property raise the bar on theme park food with healthy options like salads and fresh fruit, homestyle favorites like pulled pork and rotisserie chicken, and gluten-free fare. For the adults, enjoying a craft beer or signature cocktail while listening to music outside on the patio can make the day complete.
When Cedar Fair partners with select brands that hold intellectual property (IP) that fits with our brand, everyone wins. Guests experience their favorite characters in new and exciting ways, brands extend their reach, and parks drive increased attendance and revenue. One example of a successful partnership is with Charles M. Schulz’s PEANUTS™ brand, whose beloved characters have played an important role in Cedar Fair parks since 1983.
