Amusement park chain Cedar Fair extends CEO’s contract


SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — Amusement park operator Cedar Fair Entertainment says it has extended the contract of its chief executive officer.

The new deal announced this past week with CEO Matt Ouimet (WEE’-meht) doesn’t have an expiration date.

The 58-year-old has been with Ohio-based Cedar Fair since 2011, overseeing 14 theme parks and water parks.

They include Cedar Point and Kings Island in Ohio along with Knott’s Berry Farm near Los Angeles and Canada’s Wonderland outside Toronto.

Cedar Fair’s share price has tripled since Ouimet took over the company.
