Cedar Point closing Sept. 11 for Honda appreciation day

From cleveland.com

SANDUSKY, Ohio – Unless you’re a Honda manufacturing employee, don’t bother heading over to Cedar Point amusement park next Saturday, Sept. 11.

Honda of America Manufacturing Inc. of Marysville bought out the entire park for what has become one of its most popular employee appreciation events.

Honda spokesman Ron Lietzke said the annual event draws tens of thousands of Honda’s 13,500 Ohio employees, family members and friends.

Badge-bearing Honda workers and their guests get reduced admission (normally $45.99) as well as access to an employee health fair and a glimpse at some of its newest vehicles.

Cedar Point, which is open only Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays after Labor Day, will also be closed Friday, Sept. 10. The park will reopen to the public at noon on Sunday, Sept. 12.

Neither Cedar Point nor Honda would say how much it costs to rent the entire park.
