Cedar Fair

Cedar Fair

Cedar Fair is the parent company of eleven amusement parks, three separately gated outdoor water parks, one indoor water park and five hotels across North America.  The largest and most famous of their properties is Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, which has been named the “Best Amusement Park in the World” for 15 consecutive years by Amusement Today’s international survey.

In 2013, Cedar Fair uniformly modified its policies for guests with disabilities across all of its properties.  Guests with mobility impairments or Autism Spectrum Disorder may enroll in the Ride Boarding Pass Program, which provides pre-scheduled boarding times via the exit ramp for the most popular rides.

Assisted listening devices and sign language interpreters are available at all theaters and shows, but sign language interpreters must be requested a few weeks before the visit.  Additionally, the parks offer quiet, air-conditioned spaces  – usually the first aid station or family assistance building – for rest and re-grouping.  Here is a list of Cedar Fair theme parks with their locations:
