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).
