Cedar Point is located on a peninsula that makes its way onto Lake Erie in Northern Ohio. Before arriving, I knew that we would be close to Lake Erie - I hadn't realized that we would be on the lake.
- In September 2012, Cedar Point was named as the Best Amusement Park in the World for the 15th consecutive year in the prestigious Golden Ticket Awards, presented by Amusement Today, an international industry publication.
- New in 2013 will be GateKeeper, a record-breaking winged roller coaster located at the front of the park, which will take riders over the main entrance.
As we walked into the park and grabbed a few maps - I realized there was no way we would be able to explore everything. Cedar Point is enormous! It boasts 72 rides - 15 of which are roller coasters.
Confession: I always, always take extra maps. I never ever leave an amusement park without taking extra maps. And make note - that if you tweet that out, they see that... and may ask if you got all the maps you needed. The kids love to play with them and to keep the kids happy I always need to laminate one for each of them to get us through the long Winter months when no amusement parks around us are open.
There is such a large assortment of rides that anyone who enjoys amusements parks will find entertainment at every turn. The choices between kids rides, family rides and thrill rides was a perfect mix for the ages in our party and the level of thrill seekers. For the youngest amusement park goers - Cedar Point features Planet Snoopy and many more rides throughout the park where they can enjoy themselves and make memories.
This is definitely a place to put on our vacation idea list - and yours too! Between hotel options, fun on the beach, in the water, go-karts and the rides at Cedar Point - you could plan a very fun vacation for the family. I do hope that we'll be able to work this into a family vacation in the near future!
