There is one thing I have always found hilarious about visiting Cedar Fair parks, and that is that they always seem to be playing pop music that was popular in the 8-15 years ago range. This has been the case for as long as I can remember and is true for all of their parks. I remember going to Cedar Point in 2000 and hearing MC Hammer, going in 2006 and hearing Brittany Spears, and this year Cascada and Avril Lavinge. I also went to Dorney this year and they were playing 22 by Taylor Swift, Numa Numa, and that big song from One Direction.
Does anyone know why this is? My assumption is they don't want to pay for the rights to play current pop songs so they go for a cheaper alternative? It's just so funny and random to go an entire day at an amusement park hearing music that was popular the decade before. It's like "did I go back in time?" It's such a weird staple of the Cedar Fair experience.Tweet
