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.
Well first of all we disliked the immense crowds. The minimum wait for almost any ride was at least an hour, if you're lucky. We waited over 2 hours for Millenium Force, which was NOT worth it. Yeah that first drop is cool but Nitro in New Jersey is much better. Kingda Ka in NJ is also taller than Top Thrill Dragster, which was a big disappointment too. It's so fickle it stops running every 10 minutes. My husband is a large man. He tried out the test seat on TTD & it was fine. We waited in line over 2 hours on it then the safety belt was NOT long enough so we didn't get to ride. AFTER he tested the test seat, which was obviously different. My husband was humiliated, not to mention we spent a total of 4 hours in line for the damn thing (it rained every day we were there). All in all we found out Cedar Point was NOT worth all the hype! Six Flags Great Adventure is much better ANY day. Plus the food & drink prices were worse than even DisneyWorld. We got 2 measley cheeseburgers, shared a fry & drink and it was almost $25 for just the two of us. Plus they'll only let you leave the park once a day so you can't leave for meals if you stay all day, which we thought was BS too. We won't return there, wasn't worth the drive. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame was more fun.
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!
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!!
Don't Waste Your Time!!
When I was planning my trip to Cedar Point, I was expecting a first-class experience. But from the moment
I arrived, things went downhill (no pun intended). Instead of being greeted by a friendly employee, I was met
with an obnoxious, hideous-looking employee at the toll booth. She was unable to provide me with appropriate
directions, and all I received from her was a request for money -- no smile, no friendliness, no courtesy.
The hotel we stayed at (Hotel Breakers) could be compared to spending a night on the streets of Calcutta.
The room was absolutely filthy. It reaked of smoke, and we had requested a non-smoking room. Furthermore,
there was no elevator to our room, and during our three days at the park, our room was never cleaned once by
the housekeeping staff.
The park itself, though at times fun, was definitely not the experience I was looking forward to. The lines
were horrendous, and almost as ridiculous as the price of their food (which by the way, might not meet the
standards of the health department -- My four year old daughter got sick after eating at one of the park's
concession stands.) There was also trash everywhere, and no employees to be found cleaning up the mess. The
ride employees were just as rude as the toll booth operators, and I even heard them insulting guests behind
our backs. (How unprofessional!)
Overall, the park could be fun, but beware of the long lines, horrible food, and terrible service. I don't
recommend going, but if you do, DON'T STAY at Hotel Breakers -- it is a bacteria breeding ground.
cedar point was okay but i dont know why people love this place.i guess i am not a big roller coaster fan but i dont know many people who would wait an hour and a half for the raptor.food was bad and prices were outrageous.it was at best average
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.
I love Cedar Point and we go there alot because I live in Sandusky! Heres my trip to Cedar Point! It was my brothers birthday so we went to Cedar Point and we invited both of our friends. They both came. It was Halloweekends there. We rode 2 rides and 2 roller coasters. We waited an hour and a half to ride Raptor at night. I wanted to go into Happy Jacks Toy Factory but the line would of been a 3 hour wait! So we went through a knight haunted walk way! It was really smoking and it was not scaring at all. I wish next time it would not be so busy!
You pay a ton of money to go and they have seatbelt regulations ( if the two inch red strip on the seatbelt doesn't go all the way past the belt while buckled you will not be able to ride the ride. Embarassing after waiting in long line.
Our trip wasn't bad, but was not great either. We went on a Sunday and it was not that crowded. The shows were good and the rides were fun. However there are areas where improvement can be made. The park needed to be cleaner, especially the restrooms and the food was mediocre. For the money, it is not worth it if you are paying full price.
I found my experience at Cedar Point very dissapointing. I went looking for the best rides on earth and found the best ones to be shut down! I didn't expect to pay full admission and only ride part of the rides. Just because a holiday is coming up doesn't mean they can shut them down now to do maintainance. Do it when the park is closed!
