    Cedar Point Named
    Best Amusement Park in the World

    SANDUSKY, Ohio, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to the best in world-class thrills and fun-filled family entertainment, nobody does it better than Cedar Point amusement park/resort. The popular family vacation destination earned the coveted designation as the "Best Amusement Park in the World" in Amusement Today's annual Golden Ticket Awards. Cedar Point took home the top award for a record 11th consecutive year.

    The Golden Ticket Awards are some of the most prestigious awards in the amusement industry. They are presented annually to the "best of the best" in the amusement industry and are calculated from an international poll conducted by Amusement Today, an Arlington, Texas-based publication that covers amusement and waterpark news and trends.

    Surveys were sent to a database of experienced and well-traveled amusement park fans around the world -- in balanced geographical regions, asking them to rate the "best" in 24 categories, such as amusement parks, roller coasters, food, waterparks and more.

    "This is truly an honor," said John Hildebrandt, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point. "To be thought of as the best amusement park in the world by our peers and guests is really a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire staff to make sure that each and every guest's visit is a memorable and enjoyable one."

    Cedar Point also landed five of its legendary roller coasters in the "Top 25 Steel Roller Coasters in the World" category. The ultra-popular Millennium Force came in at the No. 2 spot, while the Magnum XL-200 (No. 7), Top Thrill Dragster (No. 9), Maverick (No. 12) and Raptor (No. 22) rounded out the list for Cedar Point. Since it was introduced in 2000, Millennium Force has always been ranked first or second in the poll.

    The park's popular Castaway Bay waterpark also earned a Top 5 spot for "Best Indoor Waterpark."

    Isn't Cedar Point losing a ton of money?

    Kudos to them for winning but how long will the park last if that's true.

          I find it hard to be excited for Cedar Point since the parent company has destroyed so many other parks (like Knott's Berry Farm). Perhaps their goal is to destroy all the other parks in the world so they can win this award.

          I know they've got great coasters, but best park in the world???

              I love the park, but would it kill them to clean the cobwebs hanging all over?

                Exactly...^^^ Cleanliness was a big problem I encounter, and their rides' queues look badly maintained. Maybe I should say.. not maintained at all.So I have to say I disagree with this "Best in the World" title for Cedar Point.
                I think the park has some great and unique coasters but in this day and age of thrills AND theming... Cedar Points fails in the latter. However, for those only looking for thrills and spills... yes, Cedar Point will fill the bill, but best theme park in the World it ain't.

                    Like I said in the Kings Island thread, the Golden Ticket awards mean nothing. They are so heavily biased that Disney won only one category this year (Best Fireworks Production for Illuminations), yet the rides and areas that won other categories like Dudley Do-Right and Nickelodeon Universe pale in comparison to their better counterparts Splash Mountain and Fantasyland. It's like the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, the only thing these awards mean is unneeded (but not unwanted) publicity.

                      Sorry CP, but I agree that you don't really deserve the award.


                      Ok, done being negative hehe...

                        Having just been there in June, I can say that their coasters are truly amazing. But that's about where it stops. It really depends on the demographic that they are getting feedback from. If amazing coasters = Best amusement park, then they might be on to something. But as far as theming is concerned, there's not too much happening there. Now if they were looking for the best THEME park, I think we all know who would win.

                          I went to Cedar Point 2 years ago and I totally agree!!

                          My best score ever!

                            Does this award incorporate theme parks as well or is it just for the unthemed amusement parks like Cedar Point and Six Flags. Those are what I typically consider to be amusement parks. In that case I could see them being on top. If it was a contest of best overall park of any kind then its ridiculous that this park would ever be considered over Disney, Universal, or any of the Anheiser-Busch parks.

                              I'm not even sure it's the best park in the Cedar Fair chain.
