The Ohio-based Cedar Fair amusement park chain is rebounding from a pandemic downturn, but rival Six Flags seems to be headed … downhill. Why it matters: Kings Island and Cedar Point are two of the most popular attractions in the state, and the success of their parent company impacts thousands of jobs. The big picture: Attendance across Cedar Fair's 13 parks rose in 2022 compared to a year ago, but is still down slightly from pre-pandemic totals, per Cleveland.com. But the chain still reported record revenue this year, as guests are spending more on average than in years past.
