Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On October 28, 2011, Cedar Fair, L.P. (the “Company”) and Cedar Fair Management, Inc. (the “General Partner” and together with the Company, “Cedar Fair”) entered into an indemnification agreement, the form of which is attached hereto, with each of its directors and executive officers (an “Indemnitee”). The indemnification agreement requires Cedar Fair to indemnify the Indemnitee to the fullest extent permitted by law for liabilities and cost and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising out of the Indemnitee’s service to the Company or General Partner as an executive officer or director. Furthermore, the indemnification agreement requires Cedar Fair to advance expenses (including attorneys’ fees), subject to certain limitations, incurred by the Indemnitee in defending a claim, action, suit, or proceeding. In the event of a change of control or extraordinary transaction, the obligations of Cedar Fair under the indemnification agreements shall be assumed by the successor and will be further secured by an escrow reserve.

The foregoing description of the indemnification agreement is qualified by the text of the agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
