On December 20, 2010, Q Funding III, L.P. and Q4 Funding, L.P. sent the following letter to Cedar Fair, L.P.'s Board of Directors:



December 20, 2010



The Board of Directors
Cedar Fair, L.P.
One Cedar Point Drive
Sandusky, Ohio 44870-5259


Dear Gentlemen:

In your response letter dated December 17th to us, you say, "The COO resigned."  We say he left under "curious circumstances."  You then criticized us for using this characterization of the event saying "we should have known better."

In the attached letter that Mr. Falfas' attorney provided to us and sent to the company on June 14, 2010, he makes it clear that he did not resign but was terminated.  Clearly there is a difference of opinion here as to what happened, and there is an ongoing dispute.  You also filed with the SEC a statement that Mr. Falfas resigned but did not mention that Mr. Falfas disagreed vehemently with your view of what happened.

Why don't we let the other unitholders and the court of public opinion decide whose characterization of the event is more accurate -- yours or ours!  Conveniently omitting facts to win an argument is not the way to run a business.  When were you planning on coming clean and telling people the real story?



Sincerely yours,


Q Funding III & Q4 Funding
