ourism certainly plays a big role in Sandusky and Erie counties.But Sandusky Police Chief John Orzech said in his 22 years at the department, he hasn't seen the amount of traffic that forced Cedar Point to turn away guests as they neared capacity.
“This was an anomaly. No traffic issues like that that could come close to what happened Saturday," Orzech said.
A park spokesperson attributed the volume primarily to the popularity of HalloWeekends and the fortunate weather. Though some guests speculated the 150th Anniversary Gold Passes played a part.
