Cedar Pointe is a seasonal park located in Sandusky, Ohio that is open May through September. If you live close by, it’s an easy drive from Toledo or Cleveland, a little further from the Detriot area, but still doable as a day trip. For 2008 a one day pass will only cost you $42.95 per person. For everyone else, I recommend making a weekend out of it and getting a two day pass for only $71.95 which will give you admission to both Cedar Pointe and Soak City. Soak City is an amazing water park with great slides and relaxing lazy river.
If you are a roller coaster enthusiast Cedar Pointe is the park for you! Personally, my favorite roller coaster is the Raptor, here’s why:
The number one rated roller coaster at Cedar Point is the Millenium Force roller coaster. Be careful with this one on a cloudy day, they will actually shut down the ride when the clouds cover the top of the first hill which is 310 feet high! Don’t forget to check out the HUGE, Giant Ferris Wheel.
Cedar Pointe is famous for salt water taffy and homestyle fries with vinegar. There are also many great restaurants to choose from.
Fun for the whole Family
Cedar Pointe features a great kiddie area with just as many rides for them as the adults, shows and carnival style games.
- Make it a long weekend and take the ferry across Lake Erie to Put-in-Bay. This island has a waterfront park, unique shops, eateries and historical attractions.
- If you are traveling with a pet they offer PetChek for $15.00 per day per pet.
- Lockers are available if you need one
- Bring lots of sunscreen, the park is right on the coast of Lake Erie and the sun can be doubly harsh.
