"It's an honor to receive these Golden Ticket Awards from Amusement Today," stated Matt Ouimet, Cedar Fair's president and chief executive officer. "We're constantly looking for the latest in cutting-edge thrills and ways to connect families and friends. Each award is a testament to the dedication, heart and spirit of the Cedar Fair staff and its parks."

Cedar Point, the Golden Ticket Award winner for "Best Amusement Park in the World" for an unprecedented 15 consecutive years, earned a second Golden Ticket Award as its Millennium Force® roller coaster was voted the " Best Steel Roller Coaster in the World."
