The special meeting of unitholders will now be held on April 8, 2010. Additional information regarding the meeting, including time and location, will be provided at a later date.

The special meeting has been postponed for the purpose of soliciting additional votes and proxies and giving unitholders additional time to consider and vote on the proposed acquisition. During this time, unitholders will continue to be able to vote their units, or to change their previously cast votes.

Cedar Fair unitholders are reminded that their vote is extremely important, no matter how many or how few units they own.
