Cedar Fair Announces Exciting Capital Plans for 2023 Operating Season


Cedar Fair Entertainment Company (NYSE: FUN), a leader in regional amusement parks, water parks and immersive entertainment, today unveiled exciting plans for the 2023 operating season across multiple properties in the U.S. and Canada. These include new themed areas at Carowinds in North Carolina and Cedar Point in Ohio, several major upgrades at Knott's Berry Farm in southern California, and 50th anniversary celebrations at Worlds of Fun in Missouri and Carowinds. In addition, several parks will be introducing a new generation of guests to some iconic rides and attractions from the past ? such as the Wild Mouse at Cedar Point and Zambezi Zinger at Worlds of Fun -- that have been reimagined and recast for today's thrill seekers. There will be plenty of delicious new food and beverage options across the board, and park event calendars will be chock full of seasonal festivals and special celebrations that offer something fun for everyone in the family throughout 2023.

"The investments we will be making in 2023 across our park footprint are focused squarely on what matters most ? making people happy and providing our guests with a best-day experience on every visit," said Cedar Fair President and CEO Richard A. Zimmerman. "Guest satisfaction ratings at our parks this season have been among our highest ever, validating that the investments we've made to improve the guest experience are paying off. Our capital plans for 2023 are aimed at taking those experiences to a new level, whether you're a diehard coaster fan, a foodie with a taste for something unique, or a festival lover who enjoys great live entertainment."

Zimmerman said Cedar Fair's capital investments for 2023 will be the largest ever at approximately $200 million. Among the highlighted plans and developments for next season:

In addition to new rides and attractions, Cedar Fair will continue to upgrade and expand food and beverage facilities across its portfolio in 2023, with a focus on providing signature menu and beverage items that tap into consumers' cravings for unique flavors and experiences they can't find anywhere else. These capital investments also will be aimed at improving the capabilities, technologies and efficiencies of the parks' food preparation and delivery systems.

Also on tap for 2023 is a full lineup of seasonal events. The wildly popular Grand Carnivale celebration will return to a half-dozen parks next summer, including Carowinds, Dorney Park, Kings Dominion, Kings Island and Worlds of Fun. Carnivale at Orleans Place will return to California's Great America, while the Frontier Festival will be back at Cedar Point. In the fall, 10 parks will offer Halloween-themed special events such as Tricks and Treats or Halloween Haunt that are sure to appeal to those looking for some frightful family fun or a good scare. And as temperatures drop, WinterFest will return to Carowinds, California's Great America, Kings Dominion, Canada's Wonderland and Kings Island. This one-of-a-kind holiday spectacular is filled with millions of lights, enchanting themed areas, live holiday entertainment, sweet and savory treats, and a variety of additional activities for the entire family.

"Each season we introduce a full slate of immersive rides and attractions, limited-time special events, and innovative food and beverage programs," Zimmerman said. "It's clear from Cedar Fair's financial results that consumer demand remains healthy and that guests are responding well to the quality and breadth of the entertainment experience we offer. With 2023 season passes now on sale, we look forward to raising the bar even higher as we continue delivering on our commitment to make people happy."
