    I don’t understand how some people dont think the rules apply to them. The fence is there to keep you out as are the warning signs. Its not a joke. You will die. This guy unfortunately learned the hard way and his selfishness cost him his life. I feel sorry for anyone who was forced to witness this. They were looking to have fun and this guy and his phone ruined it. Why do you need a phone in a theme park? You don’t.

    Cedar Point said that they are postponing their announcement because of this incident. Does anyone know when the new announcement date is?
