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. With operations dispersed throughout the lower 48 states and near Ontario, Canada, Cedar Fair welcomes approximately 28 million guests each year.
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.
