The distribution, which is payable March 19, 2018 to unitholders of record as of March 9, 2018, represents the Company's 32nd consecutive year of paying a cash distribution to its unitholders.

Cedar Fair recently reported record revenues, including record attendance and average in-park guest per capita spending, for 2017 and provided a positive outlook for 2018.  Commenting on these recent results, Richard Zimmerman, Cedar Fair's president and chief executive officer, said, "Our record fourth-quarter results and strong early-season sales trends give us great confidence in the strength of our business model and the consumer demand for our offerings.  And, even more importantly, the investments we are making in new attractions and accommodations are going to continue to strengthen our model and drive growth well into the future."

"Cedar Fair has a long history of investing in our business and delivering returns to our investors," continued Zimmerman.  "We firmly believe we are well positioned to produce record results again in 2018 and maintain our average 4% Adjusted EBITDA growth trajectory well into the future, similar to the growth we have achieved over the past six years.  In doing so, we remain committed to a steady 4% increase in our annual distribution rate going forward, making FUN an attractive investment for many years to come."
