Plenty of parking with a short walk to the entrance. Tram will take you around the park to get your barring's. Plenty of eateries in the park. 4D ride is worth the wait.

We were in Cleveland (my unofficial hometown) for a baseball game this weekend and decided that the CMZ that we remembered from years ago would be a great thing to share with our kids. Wow! It was great before but it is truly world-class now. It's layout is amazing - you get a great walk and you don't even realize... More
