Cedar Fair's 2009 Capital Expenditures

Cedar Fair has announced via press release their full 2009 capital expenditure program. The company will spend a total of $62 million for the 2009 season, considerably lower than previous years.

Diamondback is the focus of the release, along with Prowler and Carolina Cobra. Kings Dominion is listed as adding two family rides, El Dorado and the Americana ferris wheel, both from the closed Geauga Lake. A third ride was expected to be added to Kings Dominion, but appears to have been cancelled.

Dorney Park is also listed as receiving a new ice show, and the All Wheels Extreme show will be headed to several properties next year. It's crystal clear as this point, for the record, that California's Great America will not see a new wooden coaster next year.
