Here it is 2017, and we have all made another circle around the sun, seeking out adventure however you may. For those of us who enjoy the thrills of an amusement park, several attractions from throughout the Cedar Fair parks are celebrating anniversaries this year.
The oldest ride on our list this year is Cedar Point’s Cedar Downs Racing Derby, at a staggering 50 years old at the park.
The youngest is Kings Islands’ Firehawk, which celebrates 10 years at the park, though overall the ride is slightly older, as it was originally X-Flight before being transferred from Six Flags Worlds of Adventure (the former Geaugua Lake site).
This years list takes us from Canada’s Wonderland to Carowinds, Cedar Point, Dorney Park, Kings Island, Knott’s Berry Farm, Valleyfair, and Worlds of Fun. So lets see what special anniversaries we celebrate this year.
