A Steady Ride at Cedar Fair Entertainment

This owner of amusement parks offers investors a reliable cash distribution.

If you're looking for thrills and glitz in the amusement park industry, look no further than Six Flags and Disney.

And Disney (DIS) shares have bounced up and down lately amid fears that a recession could hurt attendance at its parks.
