Cedar Point Amusement Park

Updated on March 22, 2012

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!

Water Rides at Cedar Point

In 2010 there will be 3 water rides within Cedar Point Park. If you want to get wet but don't want to ride, Snake River Falls bridge is where you need to be. Standing on the bridge, the ride creates a 1,600 square foot wave. No one walks away dry!

The newest ride (Shoot the Rapids) is now open!

Next to Cedar Point is a complete water park - Soak City. You can get all the thrills while getting wet!

      When I lived in Ohio, this was a favorite place to go every year, I never missed the trip. I have to say although I like many of their coasters my all time favorite would have to be the Mine Ride!

      We had a great time at Cedar Point this past August. The weather is great, the view is remarkable and the coasters are out of this world. Top Thrill Dragster almost made me wet myself...lol

      I'm not a coaster fan so I would have been with you on the Tilt-a-Whirl. Sounds like a fun place.

      Excellent lens! I've never heard of this park, but any place that features roller coasters and the Peanuts gang, is definitely for my family. Thanks for the intro and for a very enjoyable read! 5* and featured on my Disneyland lens
