The Client

Cedar Fair Entertainment Company operates 14 land and water parks throughout the US and Canada, including Kings Dominion, Cedar Point, and Knott’s Berry Farm. Due to the unique seasonal schedule of most parks and the variety of team member roles, Cedar Fair was dealing with multiple operational challenges.


The Challenge

Several issues surfaced when Ukrop’s Threads began consulting with Cedar Fair regarding their existing program. Cedar Fair was using a 100% polyester polo, but the shirts were constantly picking and snagging. Cedar Fair was frustrated with the appearance of their team members and the extra cost of replacing ruined shirts.


The Solution

We presented the parks with our Dri-Express snag-resistant, 100% moisture wicking polo. In independent lab testing, the polos scored the highest possible 5 out of 5 for snag-resistance, so we knew they would be the perfect fit for active park employees. Employee feedback included comments like, “I tried to snag the shirt and I couldn’t,” “I washed the shirt and the stains came right out,” and “it’s basically sweat proof.” Along with high satisfaction ratings from their associates, Cedar Fair reported significant savings due to the improved durability of their uniforms.

Case Study - Cedar Fair

Ukrop’s Threads has been an outstanding partner for us, and I’d highly recommend them. Since going with Ukrop’s, they’ve streamlined our process, everything comes in on time, and most importantly, all of our employees are really happy with the fit and comfort level of the uniforms that they provide.”
