Dick Kinzel: Roller Coaster King of Cedar Point
Roller coasters took Dick Kinzel slowly to the top and a $1.24 billion acquisition ultimatley lead to his direst years. During his 39-year career (25 as president and CEO) with Cedar Point and Cedar Fair parks, he built the world's first 200, 300, and 400-foot tall roller coasters. He is responsible for adding more than 35 multi-million dollar scream machines to the company's 11 amusement parks. It was he who delivered the first shot in the coaster wars of the 1990's when he built the Magnum XL-200, the first to top the 200-foot barrier.
He brought big, edgy and expensive coasters to Cedar Point knowing that the bigger the thrill ride, the bigger the crowds. He made sure Ceder Point remained the "Amazement Park" and the Roller Coaster Capital of the World.
