Here we go.
Another new year. Time to establish new goals, take on new challenges and make predictions. My goals are set: they range from mundane to ambitious. The challenges are coming on fast. My prediction? It isn’t groundbreaking or controversial, but I am absolutely certain it is accurate — 2019 won’t be like any other year. While I won’t get into my full list of goals, my broadest and most important goal goes along with my prediction: enthusiastically embrace change.
Frequently, I am asked how Cedar Point sustains its long legacy of excellence. Our 150th anniversary is in 2020, we are the second longest continually operating park in the United States, and year-over-year we continue to win awards. It is rare that an award or poll for park excellence doesn’t include Cedar Point near the top, if not at the top. This was no different in 2018, and I am specifically proud of two of the awards our team received in 2018: Cedar Point received the Thea Classic Award and Amusement Today’s Best New Attraction was awarded to Steel Vengeance.
