Cedar Fair LP said Thursday the company collected record revenues at its chain of 11 amusement parks and five water parks through the first eight months of 2019.
The company said that through Sunday its preliminary figures show that revenue increased 8 percent, or about $86 million, to a record $1.12 billion compared with $1.03 billion for the same period in 2018.
Cedar Fair — which is based in Sandusky at its flagship park, Cedar Point — said the growth was fueled by attendance of 21 million guests, which equated to a 6 percent increase, or 1.1 million visits, compared to the first eight months a year ago.
In-park per capita spending increased by 3 percent or $1.24 to $48.79, and out-of-park revenues — largely stays at the company’s 2,300 hotel rooms and luxury RV park spaces — increased by 9 percent, or $10 million, to $130 million.
