"Always A Great Time!"

We love three hours away from Cedar Point and have been so many times. My husband and I decided to go on Halloweekends for the first time. The cooler weather and Halloween Decorations through-out the entire park give a real Fall feeling. We are big coffee drinkers and noticed there was only 1 Starbucks close to the entrance and so many alcohol booths. It would have been nice to see more Coffee stations instead of walking all the way back to the entrance to get a beverage. The park around Halloweekends gets very busy and we went on a day even the workers said they've never seen it so busy before. However, the wait times for most rollercoasters were 2+ hours but we had decided to do more games and shows this time. Parking is included $20 American all day parking which is wonderful. Believe it my favorite thing Cedar Point offered was the Mini Petting Zoo I thought that was so incredible and very random.

Cedar Point is one of the best amusement parks in the world. It has the best collection of coasters I have ever seen. They also have things for all ages. 2 kiddie lands for the little ones, roller coasters for kids of all heights and rides that are not to extreme if you cannot handle the big coasters. There is also great shows if you want to take a bit a time off from walking around the park. The food is a bit pricey, but it is no different from other parks across the country. Halloweekends is a great time even though it is very busy. It fun to see the whole park decorated in a halloween theme. Gatekeeper, Millennium Force and Maverick are probably my three favorite rides but the classics like Gemini and Blue Streak are still fun to ride. I recommend getting there early to get some rides in with little wait, leave the park to grab food or relax a little then stay late to get on more rides with less wait times.

"So Many Food Trucks!"

Obviously, the place is fun. I mean, so many roller coasters, and there are plenty of other ride options available if roller coasters aren't your thing. What I loved during my most recent visit it the wide variety of dining options available. In addition to the usual burger, hot dog and chicken joints in the park, they now have several food trucks parked in various locations throughout the park. Greek, Mexican, Chinese food... There is something for everyone.

We all know what Cedar Point is, it is a 364 acre rollercoaster park located on a peninsula on Lake Erie. Some people are lucky to say that they experienced the exhilarating rides. It has some old coasters, consisting of Blue Streak, Gemini, and Corkscrew. Although it is a fun place to go, there are a few things that could be changed. First of all, let’s give a little background.The park officially had its first season in 1870. But its first ride did not come until 1890, which was a water toboggan ride that launched you into Lake Erie. When electric came to Cedar Point in 1891 its first real coaster came called, Switchback Railway. Nowadays there are rides like Top Thrill and Valravn, both have broken many records. Now, to talk about food, the place has wonderfuly placed food spots everywhere. But a lot of them have a lot of the same food and drink. I would think maybe to provide maybe some different varieties. Not that I’m saying the food isn’t good, but there definitely could be more variety. Furthermore, when it is super hot out there are fans and in some spots umbrellas placed at rides. But on many there is nothing. For example, on Millenium Force there are lots of umbrellas, but when you get on the straightaway on the way to the ride there is nothing. It is especially brutal when the line is backed up. Also there has been many times that I have went and it was cold, windy, and rainy. For occasions like this they should make little buildings all across the park that has heat when it’s cold, and Air Conditioning when it is hot. In addition to the rides themselves. In the point of view of a person who never liked roller coasters, after going to Cedar Point I wanted to ride every single ride I could. All the rides all have their own ways of scaring or intimidating riders. Like Top Thrill Dragster, many people look at it and see how fast and high it goes and immediately say nope, but it isn’t that bad. The worst part is waiting in line. And another plus to Top Thrill, is it slows at the top, giving you a wonderful view of the park and Lake Erie. Now after reading this I don’t want you to get scared of going, because Cedar Point is an amazing place. But just be mindful of the weather conditions, so you won’t be super hot or super cold. I would strongly suggest if you ever make it to Cedar Point, ride Top Thrill Dragster first, it’s the best.
