Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, was named as the “Best Amusement Park in the World” in the Golden Ticket Awards, which are presented annually by the Amusement Today newspaper. This is the 12th consecutive year Cedar Point has won the honor.
“This year’s award means as much to us as the first one and all the ones in between,” John Hildebrandt, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point, said in a news release. “This is a tribute to our overall entertainment package and all of our employees who work hard to make it special for all of our guests.”
A panel of amusement park fans from around the world rates parks in about two dozen categories.
Three Cedar Point roller coasters were rated in the Top Ten in the “Best Steel Roller Coaster” category. Another two coasters were also ranked in the Top 25. Millennium Force, a 310-foot-tall roller coaster that debuted in 2000, ranked No. 2.
Cedar Point dates to 1870 and features 75 rides, including 17 roller coasters. The park boasts more rides and more roller coasters than any park in the world.
