Youngstown firm to "count feet" at Cedar Point

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Cedar Point has selected a local company to count pedestrian traffic at the amusement park this season. More than 3 million guests are expected at the park this summer and Youngstown's SenSource Inc. will be counting their feet.

SenSource will provide pedestrian traffic counting equipment at the park to monitor and record the number and time of day visitors exit the park. Ticket sales record visitors when they enter. SenSource says comparing the rate of guests entering and exiting the park helps Cedar Point maintain operational efficiency. The park uses the information to adjust staffing levels.

Cedar Point is unveiling a new attraction at the park this year. The Gate Keeper roller coaster is expected to bring even more visitors to the park this year.

Cedar Point is the second oldest amusement park operating in the U.S.

SenSource Inc., is a privately held techonology company based in Youngstown.
