Now apply it to Cedar Point, Universal, Six Flags, Disney. If the consume dollar is going to other parks that is a factor. If it is going to another entertainment event, that is a factor. So yes Cedar Fair should be concerned about Disney, Six Flags, Universal, etc.


"Say you're Pepsi, but some kid opens up a lemonade stand 16 hours away from your closest retailer and 34 hours away from your second closest retailer that's only open half the year and closed most weekdays and you go to your investors and blame that kid for a revenue drop that may or may not even be happening".

Also, what the f*ck is "Gator Aid"? :lol:

I miss the days of talking about boats and trains. I never missed those days before this.

But Anonymouscactus says on here that they go the first weekend of Halloweekends because the crowds are light...


First *Sunday*. Keep in mind PointFest falls on Saturday, September 15th. No thank you. I can't legitimately speak for Friday nights as I've never been but early on I'd imagine it wouldn't be too bad. Keep in mind that there are no scare zones on Sundays as well.

Also the only other downside to the day after PointFest is you can't park in the CP Shores parking lot since they put the stage out there. :-p
