I'm sure it's custom. You won't find it on your computer anywhere.

You won't find it on your computer anywhere.[/quote] Yeah, by the looks of the font it is. I know the Cedar Fair logo is definitely Gothic type font text with a flare of flags with it. I have looked through my entire PS CS3 software and ill CS3 to see the font and no luck. :P :( It's a really nice looking font and seems to be like it will be hard to find it or maybe see if someone has more insight of what version font family it is. ;) ?

Looks custom, but it appears that it is based on the Optima family (Optima Black specifically). A few of the characteristics of their font which vary from Optima include the arc on most of the ascenders (like in the lower case "d"s), and the breaks on some of the characters, like the ones in the capital "K".

(didn't mean to go all type geek on you, but you asked.)

Thank you!!! That's what I was looking for such an answer. No, it's not geeky but perfect that you have such answer. You can download the free "Optima Black" font here: http://www.fontyukle.com/en/1,optima . :D
