Sights of Cedar Point’s Maintenance Shops! – February 2019

Cedar Point has two different maintenance shops. One of the shops is located in the park and is where maintenance is done during the season for different rides and roller coasters. It is also used during the Winter for specific types of rides.

During the off-season the park does not have enough room in their one maintenance shop. A few years ago the park purchased a old car dealership building on Cleveland Road just outside of the park to balance the different roller coasters that the park has.

Thank you for reading this blog post! I hope you learned about the different maintenance shops that Cedar Point has to keep all of the rides in good condition.

These shops are vital to keeping all of the rides in the park in good working condition and safe for riders once the park opens in early May.
