Cedar Fair has recently bought a piece of land to be used by Cedar Point. No, this doesn't mean the park is expanding for more space to build rides. Instead this is an effort to make the drive into the park more attractive while providing the park with some extra storage space.
According to the Sandusky Register Cedar Fair bought the land for $735,000. This includes a 13.8 acre lot as well as the former J.D. Byrider building. This building includes a layout of 17,800-square-feet including office space as well as a showroom. The lot also contains a warehouse with 7,800 square feet of space inside.
The lot is located at 2000 Cleveland Road in Sandusky. This is just over three miles from the front gates of Cedar Point. This distance means its a building that guests will not use. In an interview with the Sandusky Register Annie Zelm, a Cedar Point spokeswoman, said, "It’s not going to be for guests, but something useful for us."
Zelm also told the Sandusky Register, "“People should see some enhancements to the area. We look forward to developing it."
It is expected that work will be started on the site in the near future. Could this be a site where the park can hide new coaster track? We will keep you posted on any further developments.
