Attendance Up At Cedar Point

SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) - Sandusky-based Cedar Fair said that July attendance at its amusement and water parks was up three percent over last year.

Better weather this summer is credited with boosting attendance by 15 percent at the company's five water parks.

And attendance is up three percent at its flagship park Cedar Point in Sandusky.

Cedar Fair President Dick Kinzel said he expects that the company's combined parks will meet their attendance goals this year.
