Dominator, Cedar Fair

After Cedar Fair's recent earnings call we now know that Cedar Fair means business with a confirmed $200 million annual capital spend across its parks.

It seems we are promised a $20 million dollar attraction every four to five years at the top five Cedar Fair parks which include; Carowinds, Kings Dominion, Knott's Berry Farm, Cedar Point and Canada's Wonderland.

We also learnt that the mid-tier parks should expect a new $15 million attraction every five years. In between years we should see Cedar Fair investing in quality flat rides, smaller attractions and improving restaurant provisions.

This is great news for fans of the Cedar Fair parks as it means we should see more consistent new rides and attractions across the parks.

In the video below, Theme Park Predictions give their views on what they think is to come in the following years at each of the Cedar Fair parks. Firstly this is the expected list of parks they are predicting will have new attractions in the upcoming years:

  • 2024: Cedar Point, Carowinds, Dorney Park
  • 2025: Kings Island, Canada's Wonderland
  • 2026: Knott's Berry Farm, Kings Dominion, Valleyfair
  • 2027: Cedar Point, Michigan's Adventure

The potential for thrilling new attractions at Cedar Fair parks seems endless with a number being speculated including a Vekoma Super Boomerang, Intamin Multi-launch coaster and a giga coaster.

What new coasters and attractions would you like to see coming to the Cedar Fair parks in the coming years? Fans of Cedar Point are eagerly awaiting the reimagining of the legendary Top Thrill Dragster which is set to open in 2024.
