Is Cedar Point a Part of Six Flags?

Cedar Point is not a part of Six Flags, as they are both unrelated, and separate theme parks. In fact, the two parks are rivals in the theme park industry.

However, there's a good reason of why many people believe the two companies are related....

Only a few years ago in 2019, Six Flags tried to purchase Cedar Fair, the parent company of Cedar Point for $4 billion.

Cedar Fair of course owns some of the most popular parks including:

  • Cedar Point
  • Knott's Berry Farm
  • Kings Dominion
  • Kings Island
  • Worlds of Fun
  • Michigan's Adventure
  • Valleyfair
  • Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom
  • Carowinds
  • Canada's Wonderland
  • California's Great America

Ultimately, Cedar Fair would reject the offer due to the offer being too low.

About the Two Parks

Cedar Point & Six Flags both feature absolutely fantastic roller coasters that visitors from all over the world pay to experience.

A great way to distinguish the two companies is to know that Cedar Point is located in Ohio, where as the most popular Six Flags park (Magic Mountain) is located in California.

Best Cedar Point Ride

Hands down, the best Cedar Point ride is Maverick, which starts off fast and never looks back.

This coaster has a very smooth-ride feel to it, and has an insane 95 degree vertical drop.

Traditional coasters have a slow build up as they climb the first hill, but in Maverick you began picking up speed immediately out of the gate.

Best Magic Mountain Ride

In our opinion, the best Magic Mountain ride is X2.

The world's first 4D coaster is hands down one of the weirdest, yet amazing experience that you'll ever have if you're a fan of coasters.

The seats actually spin while you're riding the ride, so it feels like you're riding two rides at once.

If you're searching for an adrenaline pump, there is no need to look further.

Six Flags in Ohio and Cedar Fair Acquisition

However, for a period of three years there was a Six Flags in Ohio.

It would ironically be called 'Six Flags Ohio', and then after Six Flags purchased SeaWorld Ohio, they would merge both parks to create Six Flags World of Adventure.

Only a few years after that, Cedar Fair announced a deal in which they would purchase the entire Six Flags World of Adventure park for $145 million in March of 2004. 

Although rivals, the two companies have done business with one another throughout the years.
