FLyingScooter, Cedar Fair will not waste this much of their time:

"Shut the whole chain down because they were offended by a few dozen letters from angry patrons? RAise prices, (which they will anyway in the future just like everyone else)? "

And yes, they will raise prices. Ever heard of inflation or even of economics?

Why do you think I put in the line: just like everyone else?

That's different! How DARE them add waterslides or anything else when the park really needed was to dump $15 million on a B&M! And how DARE they build them at other parks while DENYING SFA! Monsters! Scheming bastards! Scoundrels!

Great letter. Screw all the stiff robots, "it's life" types. It's good to see someone with a little passion who's willing to let people know how they feel.

Too bad we don't have a little more of this in our society. Money hungry American society.

There is criticism and there is constructive criticism. I honestly listen to the latter. I regularly ignore the former.

Again, I think expressing your feelings is great. But, if you want it to have a chance of having ANY kind of impact then I think you need to be constructive about it.

And intelligent.

A constructive letter full of mis-spellings and grammatical errors will end up next the well-written letter full of threats and complaints in the circular file.

We will say this…you have taken away many memories from us and many other families.


Wow! I didn't know Cedar Fair had possessed the technology to erase memories!

Does the government know about this? :)

OK folks, Cedar Point is the Roller Coaster Capital of the World.

Six Flags is evil.

Four dollars for a 20 oz soda is a bargin.

Wood coasters are supposed to shuffle.

Orange seatbelts are sexy.

And Intamin builds rides that work--OH CRAP they wouldn't even buy that one in an induced coma.

Lord Gonchar's avatar How about a letter for shareholders to send thanking CF for making the hard business decision to attempt to maintain the integrity of the stock even in the face of so much potential backlash? ;)

That'd be a fun one to send too.

Lord Gonchar's avatar I'm not a stockholder, but here goes:


September 25, 2007 Richard KinzelOne Cedar Point DriveSandusky, Ohio 44870-5259 Richard Kinzel: Your recent business decision to close Geauga Lake Park was, by far, needed. It was never obvious you had any intention to shut this park down from the day you purchased it. The explanation you presented to the public stating your reasoning for the closure of the park was not up surd in any way. If attendance was the true problem, shutting down Michigan’s Adventure would have made less sense than closing Geauga Lake, a 119-year-old park, as the aforementioned park saw 500,000 guests this past season, but had the infrastructure in place to serve that level of attendance. I honestly expected the finacial situation of the park to improve as you took attractions away without replacing them! Certainly you knew that adding an attraction like Maverick at Cedar Point, would only increase the costs of running the park (and your subsequent losses). We are and/or were season pass holders and long-time patrons of all of your parks. Our recent visits to Cedar Point have been encouraging this year. The length of time we experienced in lines was manageable and pleasurable. Do you understand that the lines at Cedar Point have nothing to do with Geauga Lake? We can honestly state that we will be life-long stockholders for the upcoming years even though we will also visit other parks like Kennywood for our future summertime enjoyment. We completely understand that this letter will not make a difference to you or your corporation but we wrote it anyway. We will say this…you have taken away many potential profit losses from us and many other families. Thank you for that. Your heartfelt and abrupt announcement to close Geauga Lake will not be forgotten. Fortunately, you have bought attractions for all of your parks at Geauga Lake’s expense ensuring rising pofits for all involved. We really hope you are proud of your latest business decision. Hugs and Kisses,

Or something along those lines. ;)

(and I even kept 'up surd' in there :) )

All professional letters should end in "hugs and kisses". The world would be such a better place if they did.

Except a shareholder probably wouldn't use the words "finacial" and "pofits." :)

BTW, has anyone on this forum ever corrected spelling or grammar on a post with which they agreed?

Lord Gonchar's avatar Yeah, but like FLYINGSCOOTER said, the typos only add to it.

I'm not going back and fixing it now. What can I say? My mind moves quicker than my fingers. (or would that be figers?)

And besides that's exactly why I'm not a shareholder. I demand more finacial knowledge and insist on higher pofits...but the suits just keep ignoring me.

They really don't care!
