Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

On June 2, 2011, Cedar Fair, L.P. (the “Company”) held a special meeting of unitholders (the “Special Meeting”) at the Cedar Point Center at BGSU Firelands College, One University Drive, Huron, Ohio to consider and vote upon two proposals.

The following proposals were voted upon at the Special Meeting:

 

   

A proposal to amend the Regulations (the “Regulations”) of Cedar Fair Management, Inc. (the “General Partner”) to amend and restate Section 14 of the Regulations in order to provide that the Company’s Fifth Amended and Restated Limited Partnership Agreement (the “Partnership Agreement”) may include a provision giving unitholders the right to nominate directors for election to the board of directors of the General Partner (“Proposal 1”); and

 

   

A proposal to amend the Company’s Partnership Agreement to add a new subsection at the end of Section 6.2 of the Partnership Agreement that would establish certain procedures and information requirements pursuant to which unitholders can exercise the right to nominate directors for election to the board of directors of the General Partner (“Proposal 2”).

The final voting results, which were verified by Corporate Election Services, the independent inspector of election at the Special Meeting, were as follows (based on 55,345,716 units outstanding and entitled to vote as of the record date of the Special Meeting):

Proposal 1

 

Votes “For”

   % Outstanding  

37,333,648

     67.46

Votes “Against”

   % Outstanding  

1,444,766

     2.61

Votes “Abstain”

   % Outstanding  

427,090

     .77

Proposal 2

 

Votes “For”

   % Outstanding  

37,224,863

     67.26

Votes “Against”

   % Outstanding  

1,475,088

     2.67

Votes “Abstain”

   % Outstanding  

464,372

     .84

Proposal 1 was not approved by the requisite vote of the holders of eighty percent (80%) of the outstanding units of the Company and therefore is not effective or binding upon the Company. Although Proposal 2 was approved by the requisite vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding units of the Company, the General Partner has not approved Proposal 2, given that Proposal 1 did not receive the requisite vote of unitholders. Therefore neither Proposal is effective or binding upon the Company. As a result, unitholders will not have the right to nominate directors for election to the board of directors of the General Partner.
