Cedar Point is all about bringing people together through thrills. People are drawn to Cedar Point because they want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and experience something exciting. Whether it’s with friends or family, the thrills Cedar Point provide are different from the norm and have a strong power to bring people together. This incite helped us create a target market and the idea for the Atlantean Riptide. Using our MRI Data, we found that a combination of the age and employment demographics with a psychographic from the VALS survey created an excellent target market.

This means they will be anywhere between 16%-140% more likely to come check out the new attraction. This age rage is full of active people at different stages in life. Whether they are fresh out of school or starting to form a family, Cedar Point provides a variety of activities and attractions to fit all their needs.

This means employed people are 21% more likely to come check out the Atlantean Riptide. Cedar Point is a destination where people go to get away and enjoy themselves, but it comes with a price. It’s $44.99 for an adult ticket. That combined with travel expense and additional tickets for family or friends can get expensive. Employed people are ideal for our target market because they can afford the price and are always looking for fun ways to escape from the stress of everyday life.
