Kings Island owner breaks attendance records in 2015

A record 24.4 million people visited one of Cedar Fair Entertainment Co.’s amusement parks and attractions last year, growing attendance 5 percent from the year before, according to the company’s financial results released Wednesday.

Those attendance figures include ticket holders passing through the gates of northern Ohio amusement park Cedar Point and Warren County attraction Kings Island.

Increased attendance also helped lift the company’s net revenues for the year to a record $1.24 billion — marking the sixth consecutive year of record net revenues for the Ohio-based company. Full-year profits were $112 million.

“We firmly believe our commitment to creating a compelling entertainment experience for the whole family has led us to our sixth consecutive year of record results and we fully expect this trend to continue into 2016,” said Matt Ouimet, Cedar Fair’s president and chief executive officer, in a written statement.

Cedar Fair owns and operates 11 amusement parks, three outdoor water parks, one indoor water park and five hotels in total.
