the winners of Amusement Today’s 2015 Golden Ticket Awards are announced. These prestigious awards annually honor the “Best of the Best” in the amusement industry and are calculated from an international poll conducted byAmusement Today.The poll asks experienced amusement park voters around the country and world to rate the “bests” in 25 categories.

PARK UPDATES

BY: Tony Clark - OnPoint - Cedar Point Blog
Director Communications Cedar Point Amusement Park 
December 08, 2015



This past weekend, I was invited to present at ACE (American Coaster Enthusiasts) Ohio's Holiday Party, along with friends from Kentucky Kingdom and Kings Island.

That's typically the first place we have an opportunity to talk about new stuff that we hadn't announced before. It's mostly things we've finalized between closing day and now.

So I'd like to share a few key things that I shared with that group, so you can start planning or preparing for upcoming happenings at the park.

Winter Chill Out - The date is now set for Saturday, February 20, 2016. This is your chance to take a walking tour through the park and see it (maybe covered in snow) while it's closed, and while we build Valravn. Proceeds from this year's event will go to A Kid Again, so make sure you visit their site and see what they do in Northeast Ohio. Ticket pricing and on-sale date is not yet available, but we may have it ready by Christmas. 

Valravn - The first opportunity to ride Valravn will be at the Valravn Launch Party, scheduled for Thursday evening, May 5, 2016. This is taking the place of the traditional "first rider auction," but the principal is the same. You purchase a single-priced ticket to get into the event; the proceeds all go to The LeBron James Family Foundation. Quantities are limited and there will be higher pricing for the first, first-row rides. More to come.

Expect to work in very hot temperatures with little breaks, Employees told me that Cedar Point staff are NOT nice and getting a day off is a Miracle as you'll be working everyday for 12-15 hours per day (Depending on the job). Getting breaks are short due to short on staff, Most employees work 6 Days a week. So make sure your plenty hydrated, Drink plenty of water daily.
