2 night trip report with teens

We beat the traffic and arrived Sandusky (Econolodge) at 1am Wed. We booked 1 night/1day at Breakers Express Thur to get the early admission (no cost saving to prepay the second day at Cedar with early admission - it is an option when you get there). Left the 14,17,20yr old to get free breakfast at Econolodge and ran over to Express to get our tickets at 8am (told Thur would be less crowded than Friday). No one in line and back eating breakfast with the kids at 8:20am. Off to the park, 3 rides in before 10am with early admission (Express advised what rides are open before 10am). Lines weren't to bad all day, water park disappointing (remember ages). Thankfully we only prepaid one day - enough for us. Headed over to the Ferry for Put-in-bay and rented a golf cart for 2 hours. After 5 hrs we returned the cart and back on the ferry for our ride home. We all enjoyed the laid back day after Cedar point (shopping and seafood and just cruising around-fun).

Clever strategy to book the Express in the morning to get in early that day! I've never heard that one before, and I suppose it only works if vacancies exist, assuming you didn't have a reservation.

It's also a great idea to go to Put-in-Bay the day after CP to recover in a more relaxed setting!

Thanks for the trip report!

We did have a reservation for Thursday night and planned the park for Friday, but when I read so many reviews about being busy Fridays - we decided to drive Wed. night and hit the park Thursday (worked out great)
