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.)
Starting school here when it was 130 degrees out last summer was crazy. Not to mention there is no air conditioning on the buses! On ther other end back east should start early because they get so cold and have snow Days.
It should not go by the fun the kids need but instead what is best for them to learn.
The most consecutive days I remember having worked was 15 and most consecutive double shifts I remember pulling was four. After each of those, though, I could feel my mind beginning to go and I had to take a day off. (When you start having dreams about singing bears in pirate ships, you've been working Magic Kingdom West too hard.)
