Main points about Cedar point
Cedar Point, nicknamed the roller coaster capital of the world, is an amusement park with a variety of rides for everyone in the family. Located in beautiful Sandusky, OH on Lake Erie, Cedar Point is perfect for all ages. There are kid rides, roller coasters, thrill rides, family rides, and water rides. The kid rides, like snoopy’s space race and snoopy bounce will keep young children entertained. Roller Coasters include fan favorites like: Blue Streak, the oldest coaster in the park, perfect for those who want a less adventurous but still fun ride and Top Thrill Dragster which goes up 420 feet and back down at speeds reaching 120 miles per hour. Cedar Point also has thrill rides, such as Power Tower, where you can choose to be shot up 240 feet into the air or dropped back down the same distance at 60 miles per hour. There are also a few family rides that everyone in the family can do together, like riding around in antique cars or taking a ride on the big ferris wheel. If guests get too hot in the summer heat and want to cool off there are water rides, such as River Falls and Thunder Canyon. Cedar Point has a lot of entertainment options including live bands and Broadway-style live shows. There are also special events at Cedar Point throughout the summer like the 4th of July fireworks show.
Cedar Point has a lot to choose from when it comes to dining. There are concession stands and dining halls all over the park that offer snacks, soft drinks, water, hot dogs, pizza, sandwiches and more. There are also quite a few popular restaurants to choose from including: Dairy Queen, Perkins, Starbucks, Subway, Panda Express, and Johnny Rockets. There are a variety of treats to choose from, such as: ice cream, dippin dots, yogurt, and Auntie Anne’s pretzels. There are foods available for those with dietary restrictions including, dairy free and gluten free foods. Cedar Point offers a couple of dining plans to help guests save money; they are the all day dining deal and the single meal deal. The all day dining deal is $31.99 and you can have an entrée and a side at participating restaurants. Although, there is a ninety minute wait in between meals. The single meal deal is $14.99 and it includes an entrée, a side, and a regular size fountain drink. Also, if you buy a souvenir drink bottle for $10.99 you can get free refills for the rest of the day.
A one day ticket at Cedar Point costs $39.99, if you buy in advance online. I recommend buying your park admission tickets online in advance because they are more expensive at the gate, and only bring necessary items into the park because they might get lost on a ride. Cedar Point has lockers that you can rent for around $15 a day if you need to store something in the park.
Cedar Point is an amazing place to visit. Not only are there fun rides all over the park, but there are beautiful, breathtaking views of Lake Erie, especially when you’re on top of a roller coaster. I highly recommend Cedar Point for a fun family vacation this summer.
