Cedar Point Amusement Park
Located about 80 minutes west of Cleveland, Cedar Point is Ohio's top tourist attraction and considered the Mecca of roller-coaster aficionados. The park features a world-record 15 coasters among its dozens of rides. Highlights include the Magnum, Mean Streak and Raptor. For those wanting to cool off, they may do so at the adjacent Soak City, which features water slides and a wave pool. Both parks have ample places to get food, drinks and souvenirs.
The waiting time could be improved by using Disney World's
"Fast Pass" system.
Food IS Pricey compared to Disney World or at least I thought so.
Other than that it is a First Class operation.
Leave kids under 5 at home.
Great place for those who love amusement parks! This park has a whole slew of record breaking rollar coasters. There are pleanty of kid-friendly rides and attractions as well.
This trip we went during HalloWeekend. During October, Cedar Point has haunted houses, outdoor haunted wakthroughs, and other Halloween attractions that are more kid-friendly. It's a fun place to be and the haunted houses and walkthroughs were a blast.
Fair warning, if you go on a Friday night during Halloweekend (the park is only open for the evening and you get discount admission), a lot of the rides are shut down. So if there are certain coasters you want to go on, check the list online or at the Cedar Point office beforehand. The ones I wanted on were all closed so it was a bit of a let down. We still had our money's worth with what we did though.
Halloweekends was terrible! (10-3-2010) I have never been so angry at a business in my life. I brought my oldest son there for some mommy-son time. When we go with his little siblings he doesn't get all the rides he wants in. I knew that there would be some rides down. I expected some kiddie rides and the water rides to not be working. To my surprise, only ONE major roller coaster was open all day. The following rides were closed ALL DAY. Top Thrill Dragster, Millinium Force, Magnum XL, Raptor, Mean Streak, and Gemini! Maverick was open and Mantis opened on and off through the day. We spent all day on the littler rides like Disaster Transport and Iron Dragon.
I spent $90 on tickets and drove 2.5 hours for this?! There was no sign walking in to tell you most things were closed. There was nothing on the website that told of the rides closed. Some staff told me there wasn't enough people there to warrent the rides opening. WHAT!? It says right on their website that only select rides were open on Friday but on Sat. and Sun. everything was open. If they would have been honest and said the park was half closed, I would have left for the day and come back another weekend. I think what they did is reprehensible. There are no words for how mad I am. I will be writing reviews on every site I can and making sure my church and schools are aware of their business practices. If you think about going to Halloweekends, concider yourselves warned. I would hate for anyone to get screwed like we did.
All I can say is WOW! This was our 1st trip there. We spent 2 days there. We went on a Sunday and Monday. The lines were worse on Sunday than they were on Monday. We didn't make it to the water park but will do that next time. In my opinion you need a minimum of 2 days just to see the amusement park w/o the water park. My next visit I plan to go for a week. 2 days for each park (rides & water park) with an extra day for whatever we want to do.
I rely liked the rafter and it was fun. And max air was awsome it was the 2nd ride i road and the ride in side i was scared but on the max air i think the swing should go all the way aruondnot just hafl way. I whent on the iron canon 8 times whith my family and i whent on snak river falls and i almost fel out of my seat. That was the 1st time i whent to cedar point and i think that they sould make more shade for when your wating in line. I HAD A BLAST BY .Sarabeth age 11
Wednesday July 14th hot as hell. lines were too long, average wait time was 1 hour in the 89 degree hot sun. The 8 hours we were there we could only ride 8 rides. There were 2 shut down...3 more we just didn't have time to go on.Waiiting in line was torture, Vending machines in line were 3 dollars for a bottled water...3 dollars! One machine was out of product and I lost 3 bucks.....6 bucks for a water! The drinking fountains, few and far between were warm and tasted like the lake. Kinda wonder if that's done on purpose to buy the 3 dollar water. LUNCH TIME! Sinny burger with a fat bun and fries.....14 dollars 95 cents. Does not include drink. 18 dollars for a terrible skimpy lunch.You can also smell the grease all over the park, smells like they change it once a year..gross. I took a charter bus from Lansing Mich. 76 bucks including ticket. 8 rides in 9 hours in the oppressive heat with a terrible lunch.Total with a snack? one hundred thirty four bucks! I can't see how a family of 4 can do it. Never again!
The rides are awesome, the staff is polite and their name tags tell you where they're from which was pretty cool. The views are awesome as the park is on a peninsula (not typical scenery for Ohio). The food wasn't great and it was a bit expensive but overall this is a great park and we are going to incorporate it into every summer! If you're considering a visit, I would recommend checking it out there are some affordable hotels nearby as well as some nicer ones.
i think that cedar point is the coolest place in the world for people who like coasters. they have the second largest coasters in America. If you don't like waiting in long lines stay away. I would recommend millennium force.
THOSE LINES ARE CRAZY LONG.
MAYBE THEY SHOULD HAVE A LOTTERY ON TICKET SALES SO ONLY A SMALL AMOUNT OF PEOPLE GET IN BUT THEY PAY A HIGHER AMOUNT
I STOOD IN LINE FOR 10 HOURS AND RODE THE RIDES FOR 30 MINUTES AT MOST
NEVER AGAIN CEDAR POINT UNTIL YOU SHORTEN YOUR LINES!!
We just recently came for the halloweekends, the beautiful day of October 20th, neither of us had been there for this event before. The overall experience was great and we will definitely return however there was several down falls. We spent 10 hours in the park total, got to ride 4 rides and didn't get a chance to go to any haunted houses available. I'm sure it was because it was a beautiful day and thats why it was so crowded but even the food and drink lines were a matter of debating if really worth it... I know we're not the only disappointed customers, everyone in line complaining how they paid 50$ and got to ride 4-5 coasters...
