Did You Know Cedar Point Almost Built an Amusement Park in Battle Creek?
Of course Battle Creek once had the Cereal City USA attraction, and Kellogg's once offered factory tours, but could you imagine if the city would have been home to an amusement park like Cedar Point.
The Sandusky, Ohio based Cedar Point was once deeply involved in discussion with the city of Battle Creek.
Don't believe it? A newspaper article from an Ohio newspaper dated 1977 tells the story of Cedar Point backing out on plans to build at amusement park in Battle Creek.
The article, from the Toledo Blade was shared recently in the You Know You're From Battle Creek Facebook page recently. The article states that the city and Cedar Point entered into an agreement in August of 1976 to develop 760 acres in the city as an amusement park, however Cedar Point backed out of the agreement.
Comments on the Facebook post indicate the land at the former Fort Custer, now the industrial park was the land targeted for the theme park.
