This is indeed very sad for me because my family has had a tradition of going to the park every summer for a little get a way time. It was inexpensive and not overly crowded. However, the not overly crowded part may have been the very thing that help lead to it’s demise.
Cedar Fair (the owner / operators of the park), claim that attendance has always been low and has continued to decline. I have to admit, that every time I have been to the park I always said that the park was definitely not operating at it’s full capacity. Apparently, Cedar Fair will begin dismantling the rides immediately and either sending them to their other parks or selling them. I would imagine that the wooden roller coasters cannot be moved. If I am correct, then these will sit there and rot away as old skeletons.
