We went for the first season of Steel Vengeance. What a ride, the best coaster on earth IMHO. What a work of art. There are all the other coaster as well. If you are into coasters, you know this is the place. The park is clean and friendly as well.

This is a very good park with a comprehensive number of rides and rollercoasters. I have been many times and always enjoyed my time there but I believe it is under new management and has a different feel to unit. It doesn’t seem quite as relaxed and friendly as it always did. They have become very strict re lockers etc and the ride operators are not as fun as they used to be. It is also expensive to park the car. Some of the notable rollercoasters are Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster which are still great after so many years. I think Steel Vengeance looks impressive but find it too intense particularly at the end of the ride as it is very uncomfortable around the abdominal area. Corkscrew and Gemini continue to be painful. Raptor is still good and Gateway is great. I was very impressed with Valravn which was very impressive.

Get in line to enter at 9:30am. The park opens at 10am. So when the park opens for the day go straight to Magnum XL-200 a tall hilly roller coaster. Then go on to Top Thrill Dragster. Across the street visit Cork Screw! Then next door Power Tower. By now it’s time for a snack it should be around 11:30am. Visit Annties Ann’s get a pretzel treat and a drink. After your snack visit Valravn which will probably have about a 30-45 minute line. Next door is Bue Streak. Did you hear that green soaring monster? Meet Raptor it rules the Sky it’s a great ride! After Raptor go to the fresh fries pace! Home made tasty goodness snack for lunch until dinner! It should be around 2pm so go ride MaxAir if you didn’t throw up go try the GateKeeper! It’s has the biggest look in the world. What’s that yellow thing? That my fiends is Wicked Twister! Enjoy it you fly off i promise! After facing you fears there enjoy Windseeker! Okay now it’s about 4pm head on over to Melt Bar & Grill and find your new favorite food or just have grilled cheese classic! No being all full visit Iron Dragon a fun family coaster! Then go ride Rougarou, it’s feeds on screams! Now one of the best rides in the park Millennium Force that should be about a 40 min wait. Okay it should be about 7:30pm. Head on over to Maverick, be prepared to wait an hour- that’s not an joke. After a Wild West ride on that enjoy the best ride at cedar point! Steel Vengeance okay it’s about 9:30pm Run on over to Gemini and racing coaster. And you have just had a day like no other! Hungry? Sandusky has a Applebee’s,Chet’s & Matt’s,Red Lobster,Fast Food —————————————————————————

We went the last weekend of the year and it was crappy weather (cold and rainy) but we still had an amazing time. We bought 2 day passes and used them to the fullest during the Halloween nights. The Halloween part wasn't the greatest. I'm used to Six Flags Great America where these people scare you and the whole park is scary. Here it was more laid back for the younger children. They had boo lights that you can wear if you don't want to be "scared." The rollercoasters were absolutely terrific and they tried to keep them running throughout the day despise the rain. We definitely froze our butts off, but at least most of the restaurants were indoors so you could warm up a bit. Since it was the last weekend, many of the park restaurants were out of all different foods.
