Schools change start dates to help Cedar Point
Written by Robert Niles
If you're planning a late-summer trip to Cedar Point this year, take note. Local school districts are pushing their start dates past Labor Day, at the request of the amusement park.Tweet
Here's the story from one local paper. Cedar Point hopes that the later start will allow more local kids and families to spend time at the park, either as customers or employees. But folks from outside the area should take note, as well.
Days that local schools are in session are among the best to visit parks, since that keeps attendance down. That's why late August can be a good time to visit the Orlando resorts and early June good for SoCal.
With Sandusky-area schools switching to later summer vacations, that means the park should be more crowded in late August, and a little less so on weekdays in late May and early June, starting next year. For this year, though... local kids get a longer summer vacation! (Keep that in mind when Cedar Point announces its summer attendance numbers next fall.)
