In the video "Christmas in the Park" provided by Virtual Midway, Cedar Point appears to be completely empty. I think I counted a total of five guests throughout the entire 2 and a half minute video. Can anyone explain why the park would be almost completely dead? Winterfest at Kings Island always seemed to be very busy, and I don't see why Cedar Point should be that much different.
The blurb to the side of the video says that Christmas in the Park only ran for the 1994 season. I understand why if the park was that empty. They couldn't have possibly made any money that way.

I think I read over at GTTP that it was so absolutely bitterly cold the days they were open that it was miserable to go outside. Sort of like what it would be like if you tried to go to the Point today. I'd suggest trying over at GTTP for more information on it - there were a couple of topics around Christmas about it I believe.

a good thread on the topic.
I don't think it had as much to do with the weather as some people believe. My opinion is that there just wasn't anything there was really worth driving more than a few minutes to see. Basically, it was a single gift shop, a food stand, the carousel, and the carriage ride. It was an event that was a non-event. Pretty neat for the locals, but that's about it.
