Peanuts Characters Move In at Cedar Fair Theme Parks

North America's third-largest amusement park chain says it's putting Charlie Brown, Snoopy and other Peanuts characters into five more of its parks next year.

The Peanuts gang will replace the Nickelodeon characters and themed rides at Canada's Wonderland near Toronto and Kings Island near Cincinnati.

They'll also be added at Kings Dominion, in Doswell, Virginia.; Carowinds in Charlotte, N.C., and California's Great America near San Francisco.

Ohio-based Cedar Fair says its contract with Nickelodeon was up and that it has had success with the Peanuts characters in its other parks around the country.

    It seems like Cedar fair doesn't want to give up the past. I know that nothing can compare to Disney as far as animated iconic characters go, but isn't there something that is new and relevant to childhood entertainment. Don't get me wrong, I love Snoopy and the rest of the gang as much as the next person, but its not going to have the same appeal as say Spongebob or Dora the explorer.
