I had organised to meet up with some people who would also be going on the Theme Park Review New Hotness tour. We all wanted to do a pre-trip to Cedar Point so it made sense to split the car hire and spend the time together.
The “Roller Coaster Capital of the World” stretches out on a long strip of land into Lake Erie and earns its name with 16 roller coasters within the park. Cedar Point is huge and spacious and has beautiful lake side views from many of the attractions.
16 roller coasters may sound like overkill but there’s enough variety here that it could never get boring. It’s home to Millennium Force, Maverick and Top Thrill Dragster, three world famous and highly rated coasters. All three are extreme in different ways.
If you’re not a fan of walking, this probably isn’t the park for you. It is huge. Plan on taking shoes you can comfortably walk in for miles and miles. The food is pretty bad and over-priced but it’s an amusement park. If you drive a few minutes out of the park you get to the Thirsty Pony where you can get good food and drinks for a more reasonable price.
