Some of my favorite rides at Cedar Point Sandusky:

1. Raptor: One of the first big roller coaster rides right in the entrance of the park. Lines are usually long, but you can do this one at night as it is best.

Save Money at Cedar Point in Sandusky Ohio

It is common for people who want to save money to look for coupons to use in their destination location. Their first choice is to search the internet to find printable online coupons. Finding authentic online coupons can be very difficult to say the least. I have clicked on many links that lead me to suspicious websites. Just visiting some websites makes my antivirus program trigger some adware or spyware notification. Or some want me to fill in some personal information before giving me the link to the printable coupon. You may also run across some fake coupons. Use your common sense to detect coupon scams. If the coupon has an outdated expiry date, spelling mistakes, not so clear graphics or barcodes, or requiring you to give additional information before you can use it can be possibly scams.

It is very possible to find a variety of coupons and discounts from different sources to use at Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio. Here are some tips to save money and to find genuine coupons for use at Cedar Point:

1. Cedar Point Getaway guide: The best place to find authentic coupons is the Cedar point Getaway guide. It has two pages of valuable coupons in the back. Visit their official website at

and place an order for the Getaway guide. It is totally free. It has coupons for two for one starlight passes, discounts on admission tickets to Cedar Point, Soak City and Challenge Park and discounts for the park resort properties and discount coupons for food, photos, season passes, etc.

The Cedar Point Getaway Guide must be ordered in advance of your visit; please allow sufficient time for it to be delivered to you by the USPS. If your visit is at least three weeks away, please request your copy online. If you are visiting sooner, please call 419-627-2350 (this may take up to one week, depending on where you live). Note that the Getaway Guide is not available at the park.

Meijer and other partner locations like Giant Eagle sell them for about $35. Some Pepsi soda cans have discounts on them. If you have four or more tickets to buy, the best place is to buy at the Cedar Point website online deal for about $33 per ticket.

3. Outside food and beverages are not allowed in the park. Un-opened bottled water are allowed into the park. So bring your own water if you do not want to pay $3 per bottle inside the park. Do not forget to drink enough water during your fun day at Cedar Point.

FUN Investment idea

If you have some money to invest, I would recommend buying some shares of Cedar Point's parent company. Its ticker symbol is FUN. Look at the 5-year price chart of FUN. It usually stays within the $25 to $30 range. I think any price below $20 is a good price point to enter. As of October 2008, the stock is trading at $16 per share.The stock may not skyrocket as it is not a growth stock. However, they have one of the best dividend programs. The dividend yield is about 12% at current prices (oct 2008) and that is guaranteed money. Any appreciation in the stock price is just a delicious bonus. Good luck.

      I agree, Cedar Point is an awesome park obviously, but you should check the pictures before you put them on your article. The last one there is not a Cedar Point ride... The inverted coaster. I think it may actually be Thunderhawk at Michigan's Adventure.

      You have not experienced an awesome park until you've been to Cedar Point. Let's just put it this way, once you go and ride their coasters, everything else will look like kiddy land. Believe me, you will not be disappointed and it is by far the best place to vacation. Don't be fooled by the appearance of the Maveric. And don't chicken out on the Top Thrill Dragster or the Millenimum Force!! They weren't kidding when they called Cedar Point the Roller Coaster Capital of the world. It truly is an amazement park. Have fun!
