cedar point employees rumble in their housing area

Sandusky police answered the call to assist Cedar Point's security force at 3:15 a.m., this past Sunday when a fight broke out in the employee housing area.

Very true, point of note though. The park was closed all day Sunday and most of the day Saturday.

I just returned from Ohio and was there with family. We had to leave the park after an hour and 3 rides on Saturday.

Cedar Point was very kind and refunded all of the money we spent to include our lodging Friday night. For not having been to Cedar Point in 5 years it was good to see they still care about their customers satisfaction.
