Cedar Point loosens dress code for 5,000 workers


Cedar Point is doing away with some of its grooming guidelines for employees and allowing them to have colorful hair, beards, visible tattoos and more piercings.

A spokesman for the amusement park in Sandusky says many of these styles are becoming more normal.

Tony Clark said that the changes also will allow the park to hire from a wider audience.

Cedar Point tries to hire about 5,000 people each year.

The park officially opened Saturday with another new record-breaking roller coaster.

Steel Vengeance replaces the Mean Streak coaster. It tops 200 feet and will flip riders upside down.

The new coaster was briefly shut down Saturday after a minor collision of coaches.
