Cedar Point Amusement Park
Roller Coaster Capital!
Cedar Point Amusement Park is considered the roller coaster capital. It may be the home to 14 roller coasters but there is more to Cedar Point than coasters! There really is something for everyone! This lens will take you on a tour of the park and show you that there really is something for everyone! My family visited Cedar Point in the summer of 2008. My husband and 3 daughters rode as many of the roller coasters that they could. I prefer to stay on the ground and ride the rides that spin - like Tilt-A-Whirl (one of my favorites!) My mother was also on the trip with us and rode many of the rides (including the Big Wheel!). So there really is something for everyone! Come take a look and then book your trip to Cedar Point Amusement Park!
Cedar Point Amusement Park is over 134 years old. It has continually won awards for "America's Favorite Amusement Park" and "Favorite Park for Thrills" and numerous awards for it's roller coasters. In 1990 Guinness Book of World Records recognized Cedar Point as having more roller coasters than any where else in the world!

Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky
Our family saw this hotel/resort when we visited Cedar Point & we wished we were staying there! They had their own water park (all inside!) that looked awesome! You might want to add an extra day to your visit just to spend time at your hotel (or when you get rained out from the park!). The hotel also offers some great things for the kids!

Family Rides at Cedar Point
There are plenty of rides that families will enjoy (even Grandma and Grandpa!). My families favorite ride was the Cedar Downs Racing Derby. It's a carousel, but not your typical, slow moving horses going up and down carousel! It simulates a race with the horses starting out slowing and then racing around and around. The ride tops out at 15 mph. There are 3 different carousels at Cedar Point.
There is also a train ride that will take you around the park or just from the front of the park to the back! Paddlewheel Excursions is a great way to slow down for a while and enjoy the park.
If you don't have a fear of heights you might try these two rides. The Sky Ride takes the riders 92 feet in the air down the middle of the Midway. The Giant Wheel is like a ferris wheel, but bigger - much bigger! The Giant Wheel is 150-feet. It gives a fabulous view of the park, Lake Erie and maybe even Canada!
