Do you think he's nervous? I doubt it, since he's already had quite an extensive history in the amusement park field, having come to Cedar Fair with a background from Disney Parks and Resorts.
plans to embrace technology through a makeover of park websites, to help with planning and the in-park experience. He also seems keen on focusing on the family part of the amusement park visitor equation, though that's not a new idea by any stretch of the imagination.
Still, how far his plans of attracting families will go could be interesting to watch. Could dark rides make a return at Cedar Fair parks? Would Mr. Ouimet rather spend an extra million on theming rather than more coaster track? Burning questions, I know, and I'm exciting to watch things play out.
But as for his first day at work, we wish him good luck!
