Very satisfied twice this year! – My family and I royally enjoyed ourselves at the park and also at Hotel Breakers. We loved the feeling of the place with all the old pics on the walls. Our experience in August sparked us to return at the end of October for the Halloweekend. I have never ridden a roller coaster in temps down in the 30's before but it was fun all the same! We invited another couple with us this last time and they have recommended it to members of their family! Adventureland in Altoona, Iowa is so lame compared to Cedar Point! We will be back in the future and our kids will undoubtedly bring their kids when that time comes! Great times!
Try to Avoid Buying Park Food (Too Expensive). Buy tickets online or elsewhere to get a discount. Great Customer Service. – I have been to many parks around the U.S. To name a few; Six Flags, Disney World, Universal Studios, Kentucky Kingdon etc. Cedar Pointe is my favorite by far! The lines are long on the popular rides, especially on the weekends, but it is well worth the the money that you pay and the wait. After visiting Cedar Pointe Several Times, anytime I go to another amusement park to broaden my horizons, they always leave me yearning for more and wanting to go back to Cedar Pointe. It your a thrillster like my family, you'll absolutely love this place. Stay at the Candlewood Suites, The Fairfield Inn or The All American Hotel. Their the cleanest. The Waterpark is totally awesome, but is a seperate fee from the park. Try to Take a day for the park and a day for the waterpark. Attempting to do both in one day is possible but just too much!
America's largest roller-coaster park thrills with 68 rides to please the young, the old and the adrenaline-addicted. – The Scene
If you feel the need for speed, 16 breathtaking roller coasters guarantee a good time. Once Memorial Day weekend begins, expect lots of fun and large crowds. In addition to the rides, the park also provides a resort hotel, an RV campground and a port to Lake Erie. Other entertainment is also available in the form of stage shows, a petting zoo and a new ice show called "Snoopy on Ice."
Top Thrill Dragster stands 420 feet tall and, using hydraulic technology, can zoom from 0 to 120 mph in just four seconds. The Wicked Twister is the world's first double-twisting impulse roller coaster and races the track at 72 mph. For people who enjoy slightly lower heart rates, there are plenty of other rides including antique carousels, water rides and the family-oriented Camp Snoopy.
best rides – I have been going since age 15. I am now 63. Cost is high getting in but worth it. This year I will be going with my eighteen year old son, my 30 year old daughter and her children ages 15, 10 and 4 years old. There are rides for all ages, wet or dry. Snacks, lunches, and dinner all top quality. Shops such as soap, fudge, and leather - many things made on site. Highest rated rides. If its a hot day with good weather expect long lines on the popular rides.
Great family place, cleanest park I've been to. – My parents took me there when I was a kid after Boblo Island closed. The Blue Streak was the main coaster at the time. The Corkscrew opened the next year. It seemed that every year CP opens a new coaster of thrill ride. While I was in the Army CP was always on the list of things to do while home on leave. Once my children were old enough one of the first places we thought of for vacation was CP. My oldest is now 13 and wants to go to CP pretty much every weekend or day that I have off. She is a coaster junkie. She called me at work while she was at CP on a field trip with her school just to tell me about the Top Thrill Dragster. She wouldn't stop talking. From the Millenium Force to the Magnum (my favorite) to the Blue Streak (sentimental value) Cedar Point is THE greatest amusement park!
Best Amusement Park EVER! – I've been going here at least two times every year since I was 6, and I'm now 14. The past three or so years I've been going at least three times a year, once with my immediate family, once with my aunt, uncle, and cousin, and once for Halloweekends. This year my family decided to buy season passes and I would really recommend doing this if you go more than twice a year. They have the best roller coasters on the planet! And during Halloweekends they have some pretty amazing haunted houses that can scare the pants right off of you! But if you're not into those, go during the summer. The only thing that I don't like are the lines, but if you go on a weekday instead of a weekend, the lines aren't very long at all. The shortest amount of time I've waited in line for the Dragster was 15 minutes. And that was on a Monday. They have awesome homemade french fries, the best pizza, their food is great overall! And for the little ones there is Camp Snoopy, everything is just their size. There are even two roller coasters just for them! Snoopy Express and Jr. Gemini. So I hope after reading my review, you will choose to go to Cedar Point, America's Roller Coast!
Go early and enjoy the best park in the World! – My brothers and I took a trip to Cedar Point this past May (15-18th) and we all believe that there is not another park in the World that is better and I've been to almost all of the six flags theme parks. If, however, YOU DO NOT enjoy rollor coasters or thrill rides, this park is definitely NOT for you. If you can't get enough of them like me, then Cedar Point is a must. We went in early season and mid-week and got a hotel for 3 nights, 2 full-day passes, and 2 evening passes for $180 TOTAL at the Breakers Express hotel which is a short drive away from the park. Another benefit of staying at the Breakers Express or any other park-owned hotel was the early park entrance (guest get to enter the park and ride select coasters 30 minutes before the general public). The longest we waited in line was 45 minutes and that was for the Top Thrill Dragster while it was raining (they shut it down when it rains or lightnings). A few times we literally walked right onto the coaster. I highly recommend you not ride Raptor, Top Thrill, or Millinium Force first because they are the greatest coasters in the world; everything else will seem tame after them.
That said, plan for at least two days because you will want to ride these three at least four or five times each (We rode Top Thrill 8 times, MF 5, and Raptor 7). The new rides, Maxair and Skyhawk are unique and also very fun. There is just no other park that comes close (ok, Six Flags Magic Mountain and Busch Gardens are close) for extreme thrills. Go early season or mid-week because waiting in line for these rides is no fun, you want to get on them and do it over and over and over. Also, prices are much cheaper and the people seem more friendly than one would think. The only downfall of going early season is that the beach is in horrible condition and you can't rent wave runners or go para-sailing because the water is about 50-degrees.
BEST PLACE EVER. – If I were you, I would definately go to this park sometime in June because there's no lines for any ride or sometime once school starts in like September because then again, you don't really have to wait to ride anything. Last time I went was the 2nd weekend in June & we didn't have to wait more than 5minutes to ride any thing. I would definately recommend this park to anyone who loves rollercoasters & just having fun as a family.
Best Amusement Park – My favorite amusment park ever!
This place has something for everyone- the aderenaline-addicted can ride roller coasters to their heart's content, while small children can play in Camp Snoopy and others can ride the Ferris Wheel or any number of gentler rides.
Just a note- I go in late May/beginning of June, and the lines even for Top Thrill Dragster and Millenium Force are rarely, if ever, longer than an hour and a half. Often, lines for good but older rides like Mean Streak and Magnum don't exceed 15 minutes, including wait time for the front car.
Best amusement park in the Great Lakes – Awesome place to visit. All kinds of rides for every person imaginable. There can be very long lines for the rides and to get into the park in the morning. Best way to get the is to fly into Sandusky airport (KSKY) and take the shuttle bus to the park, its great to drive right past all the cars in line to get into the park and to the head of the ticket line. We then stayed till after the laser light show and flew back home. Park is always clean family friendly and has many great shows to watch to when your tired of waiting in lines at the rides or need some lunch.
