Cedar point is by far the best amusement park for thrill seekers. With over 15 coaters this place cannot be beat. The coaster's are top notch. I have been to other amusement parks and their coasters just do not come close to the speed, scale, and magnitude of Cedar Point's coasters. But CP is not just for coaster fanatics, it offers a ton of great rides for children and families too (and other less aggressive rides for adults too). There are 3 main areas that is dedicated to the kids but through out the park you will find many other rides they can ride as well. There are also shows, parades, games, great food (better than you would expect at an amusement park), and on some nights fireworks. You can bring in strollers and wagons and food. Large coolers must be left outside the gates in the picnic pavilion areas. There is a very nice (and large) beach you can access too! Just remember to get your hand stamped before leaving the park gate (beach is steps from the gate near Camp Snoopy and the stadium along the lake). There is also a marina for boaters to dock at for the day, night, weekend, week, month, or season and it is so close to the park gate! There is also a RV (no tents) park with cabins right on the lake, and 2 or 3 hotels. If you stay at the lodging you will also get discounted admission tickets and early entry to the park! There is also a water park located near the lodging and steps from the park entrance. And a "Challenge Park" area with putt putt, go karts, arcade, and thrill rides. There are separate fees for the Challenge Park attractions and for admission into Soak City (water park). Both Cedar Point and Soak City have discounted tickets (called Starlight) after a certain time in the evening (usually 4pm). The Cedar Point website is pretty good. Look there for discounts and ticket bundle packages. If you sign up for their email list they will email you with some pretty good specials throughout the season. If you plan to visit the park more than 3 times or 3 days than consider a season pass. Have fun and ride on!

The best family entertainment around. More roller coasters than any other park. For those who no longer ride roller coasters, the shows and atmosphere of the entire park is terrific. My husband & I are in our 60s and we get season passes every year. We love taking our grandchildren whenever they visit & they visit often.

Who needs Disney when you have a beautiful Lake Erie and a fabulous amusement park right here in Sandusky, OH???? Stay at one of the great locations on site and get early admittance to the park.
However, I recommend careful planning during peak times. If you're first to the park as mentioned above, enjoy some of the top rides (like the new winged coaster or The Milenium or Dragster) at the very beginning. But if you come at regular opening times, I recommend going deeper into the park and work your way back to the most requested rides.
Plan for a lot of funds spent on food but there are picnic tables if you want to bring your own cooler, etc. There is even a kennel (but I've never used that). Have a great time!!! Bring a hand fan, SUNSCREEN!!, and watch the weather. Lake weather can be different than inland!

This amusement is the best amusement park in the world. It is located in Sandusky, Ohio which is close to Detroit and Toledo. It has the most roller coasters of any park, and it also has incredible log rides and other fun rides. The food is also very delicious and there are many kinds to choose from. If you want the ultimate experience from a park, Cedar Point is the place.........

I am from Ohio, so I am probably partial, but this park has it all. Always have the best rides and continually putting money into the park. It is also a clean park and I always feel safe there. I have been to Cedar Point probably 20 times in my life, and each time is always a fun experience!
