SANDUSKY, Ohio (WWJ) - Cedar Point is looking for enthusiastic people of all ages to serve guests as the park makes history with the opening of its new wing world-record-breaking roller coaster, GateKeeper.

Employees who live in Cedar Point’s dormitories and apartments will also see significant improvements this year, including major Wi-Fi upgrades and new basketball and volleyball courts.

All employees have the opportunity to participate in intramural sports and bus trips to popular travel destinations while they build a solid foundation for any career. They can even earn college credit and work their way into management positions.
