Cedar Point

A lot of you know we lived in south Florida for a very long time. No matter, every single year without fail, we have made our way to Ohio to visit friends, family and the amusement park. My kids love Disney World, but they love Cedar Point too, and if you ask them their favorite amusement park they always say Cedar Point, hands down. My kids are all thrill-seekers (the second oldest joined the craze a few years back), and no one beats Cedar Point for roller coaster thrills.


Cedar Point has roller coasters galore (we're talking 15 or 16 of them), many of which win awards. This year the big draw for my daughter and I was The Gatekeeper, the new one they have, that is also the tallest, fastest and longest wing roller coaster in the world.


You can see in the picture above why it is called a wing coaster. I have to say, neither me nor my daughter were overly thrilled with this one though. It was a nice, calm, and very smooth ride. It was fun that it was new and that it went through two gate-like structures over the entrance of the park, but it didn't really do it for us. That is probably true because we are spoiled by the really fast, really big coasters, like my favorite below.


To me, THIS is a rollercoaster. Oh my gosh, this thing is fun! Top Thrill Dragster goes 0-120 mph in less than four seconds and it takes you 420 feet into the air.


I've ridden this many times before, but I didn't ride this year. Baby girl went solo (she wasn't missing out on it no matter what, that's my girl). :)


I wanted to go too, but hubby doesn't do these big coasters, and I felt bad because he'd already waited quite awhile for us while we were in line for the new coaster.  Notice the clothes hanging on the stroller above? They're drying out because while hubby was waiting earlier on me and little woman, he let the little guy run through the water, hahahaha.


That was f.u.n. for little man, but it was chilly on and off all day so we had to change him, and quick. My son will tell you in a heartbeat that he loves his mama (I get the sweet lovin's) but he'll also tell you just as fast that his dad is more fun. Things like this prove he is right, he had a blast, but no way I'd have let him do it, it was too cold for water.


We always have a great time at the park. This year was different for us though because we were missing a kid! My second oldest grew up and moved to another state, so he wasn't here to just run off with his sister all day. It's more fun for her, by far when he's there. When my oldest and his wife come, that's even better because the four of them run off all day together. When it's just us old folks and her little brother, she's stuck with a lot of the littler rides, like the one above, hahaha.  She's a trooper though, and never complained once. In fact, she laughed a lot of the time, but next year we're going to have to get one or both of her brothers home for the trip.


I did get to ride this with my daughter this year, and it was fun. It was also kind of peaceful. You float out of your seat a little at the highest points, and you can see the water (Lake Erie) while you're up there, so it's nice.


Cedar Point has three huge areas for children (and one smaller one), and my youngest loves them all. There are so many rides, many of which I rode as a child, and just as many, or more that are new. There's also a big Snoopy bounce house, and shows put on by Charlie Brown & the gang at various times throughout the day.  My son loved everything, but this year his big thing was the sky ride pictured above. 5 times he wanted to go across it, lol, and 5 times he did. :)


Little man also loves the train ride because it takes you around the park. You can stop in Frontier Town if you want and get off, where there are a lot more rides, and things to do, or you can go all the way around like we like to do because you come across scenes like the one above. They've got these characters doing things like actually playing banjo music, putting out burning flames, etc. And it's fun. This area is like this year-round, but right now Cedar Point is also completely decked out for Halloween. If you're looking for a place to take your kids for Halloween festivities, this is it. The daytime is child-friendly, and the nighttime is geared much  more for the grown ups. And the best part, the rides are still running, woot!

If you're anywhere near Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, I say go go go!! Summer wouldn't be summer without Cedar Point, even if you don't get around to it until Fall. ;)

Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio is open Friday-Sunday for the remainder of October. You can find the calendar here.

  7. I've never heard of Cedar Point before but I know if my kids, well the oldest two, get to go there they would love it. My daughter LOVES roller coasters. There's always some fear in me that refuses to go, possibly because I'm so afraid of heights. Looks like everyone had fun as well.

  23. I grew up in Ohio, so I have been to Cedar Point MANY times, though not recently. This post makes me think I need to write a blog about our first time there. I have a funny, funny story.

    Anyway, you are absolutely right that this is the Best Park for anyone who loves roller coasters. I also grew up going to King's Island, but Cedar Point was my favorite. I don't do round and round very well. And am not crazy about the coasters that go upside down (unless it is very quick and not often). I am not sure that I could do them at all now since I lost 70% of inner ear function in both ears. It makes "finding where you are in space" a challenge. When I am tired my compensation skills don't work as well and I get dizzy. I think that all of the upside down might really confuse my inner ear....::sigh::

    That ride that hangs you over the park and goes round and round... the one you describe as "peaceful" and "calm" because you can see the park and Lake Erie. That looks like a NIGHTMARE for little 'ole me with my inner ear problems. No way would I go on that EVER. hahahaha.

    So glad you had fun. Maybe the next time we visit Ohio we can go to Cedar Point again...

  25. I've always wanted to go there but I'm so lazy. I have a major theme park five miles from my house and I've never once been there. My defense is that my kids are too young and can't go on all the crazy rides I want to go on. Maybe when they're older :)

  42. I hate Cedar Point. I grew up in Michigan, and so everyone would go there in the summers. I didn't make it until I was 25, though, and I went with my ex and two friends. I had never been on a roller coaster before, and my stupid ex started me out on the MaxAir. I got off and bawled like a baby. I closed my eyes during the Raptor. In the picture that they take of you while you're riding, I look like I passed out! haha I'm such a wuss, and I'm okay with that! I prefer to keep my two feet firmly planted on solid ground from now on.

I'm a big kid when it comes to rides, I go on all of them with my kids! as far as parks though, I have only been to Disneyland and the California Park and Universal. here where I live (Vancouver BC) we have one of the oldest wooden roller coasters in North America.

  71. I haven't been to Cedar Point in over 20 years! It was great fun and the best part was that your ticket purchase price paid for the rides too. We camped out for the night last time so we could do it all over again in the morning. lol

  72. That was a wonderful adventure!

    I would love to visit Cedar Point. I think I've only ridden on a roller coaster once.
    I was a wee kid.

    And big sister is such a sweet for enjoying the time with little brother.

    Glad you had such a fun time.

    P.s I probably wouldn't have let my kid in the cold water either...haha.

  74. Wow, my daughter took me on just a normal roller coaster at last year's show over a year ago now and I'm still recovering. I'm sure I use to love the rides and not entirely sure when I stopped.

  78. We live in Michigan only several hours away from Cedar Point so have had the pleasure of going there many times, both when my husband and I were growing up and we also had fun taking our 5 kids there when they were growing up too. My husband and most of our kids are adrenaline junkie daredevils and go straight for the scariest stuff like Top Thrill Dragster.... luckily ONE of my kids. my son Elijah is like me and only likes the milder stuff and nothing too high up, our most daring ride was the Mine Ride Wooden (smaller) coaster

  79. Cedar Point seems sort of like Carowinds in SC/NC. I used to love to ride roller coasters. I miss being able to do such things. I loved amusement parks. I wish I could enjoy them with my grandchildren.
