Cedar Point Press Release
As Cedar Point prepares to launch GateKeeper, its new wing roller coaster in May, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-OH, will make a stop at the famed amusement park/resort on Tuesday, March 26, to meet with local workers who have been instrumental in the $30 million project. GateKeeper is not only an exciting addition for thrill seekers— it’s also a tremendous success story for Ohio manufacturing. Its construction created more than 100 local jobs for steelworkers, electricians, contractors and others during the traditionally slow winter months.
Sen. Brown is scheduled to speak about Cedar Point’s impact on job creation and tourism at approximately 2:30 p.m., directly in front of the construction site. He’ll be joined by key representatives from Cedar Point, project leaders and workers who have been instrumental in building GateKeeper. A few key notes include:
Cedar Fair strongly believes in and continues to invest in Ohio tourism
The highlight of this year’s investment is the new multiple-world-record-breaking GateKeeper roller coaster at Cedar Point
