Cedar Fair Charities Announces Coaster Campout At Parks In Honor Of National Roller Coaster Day
Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, home to 122 of the greatest roller coasters in the world, announces their first-ever companywide Coaster Campout between mid-August and mid-September. Campers from all over the country will experience camping overnight in a tent underneath the stars as we celebrate National Roller Coaster Day. On top of the thrill of sleeping in the park, guests will enjoy admission into the park, meals, Exclusive Ride Time (ERT) and commemorative memorabilia.
“Cedar Fair has long been recognized as a leader in the regional amusement park industry for their record breaking roller coasters. Celebrating this special day is our way of saying thanks to the millions of people who have visited our parks including guests who have experienced Cedar Point, known as the Coaster Capital of the World,” said Cedar Fair’s Chief Operating Officer Richard Zimmerman. “Our parks boast 58 miles of coaster track when added together which is essentially a thousand football fields in length. We encourage enthusiasts to join us during the third shift as we pay homage to all thrill rides on this historic day.”
Park campsites will average $200 each and the site accommodates up to four guests. Each tent, provided by the guest, will be given a 12X12 space.
