My husband and I have been doing this with another couple for a few years now and really enjoy it. One year, because of the short waits, we were able to ride Millennium Force three times on the same day!! That was worth the price of admission right there. Oh, and if you go the website for the park, you can request a brochure to be sent to you that will have tons of coupons to get money off park admission, which I know gets a little steeper each year.

If you live near a Cedar Fair Property, like Worlds of Fun or Knotts Berry Farm in California, then get a season passport there. First, you can use it at Cedar Point - and it’s cheaper than 2 days admission.

Let's start big, no let's start huge! Let's start by going on the Top Thrill Dragster. This is the single most thrilling ride in the world, but you better be patient because waits can be longer than three hours long. Believe me it is well worth the wait. Once you sit in the dragster itself you will feel that adrenaline rush straight to your head. Ready, set, go. Before you know it your are blasted off from zero to 120 mph in four seconds. Yes I said four seconds. You will twist up to 420 feet in the air and on the way down you will reach 120 mph for a second time. Awesome! Don't take my word for it try this experience for yourself.
I know not everyone is cut out for the Top Thrill Dragster so here are a couple of other cool rides in this area of the park.
Magnum XL-200 was at one time, the fastest, and tallest coaster at Cedar Point. With a height of over 200 feet and speeds reaching over 70 mph Magnum XL-200 can really get your heart racing.
Two of the more tame coasters in the park are Gemini and Corkscrew. Gemini looks like a woodie but it is actually a steel coaster or should I say coasters. Dualing cars race each other to the finish with speeds up to 60 mph. Corkscrew on the other hand delivers what the name promises, twisting and turning you upside down at speeds up to 45 mph.
Maybe after you finish riding those two coasters you will have a bit more courage. The reason being is the Power Tower. Choose to be either shot up in the air or dropped down to earth. At 240 feet high in either direction this ride definately will please any thrill seeker.
This concludes my essay on the chills and thrills of Cedar Point. The way I see it I saved the best for last. I have been to over 15 different amusement parks and no one beats the thrill factor here at Cedar Point. When you come to the Point do yourself a favor and take the chicken out of your soul and leave it at home, because this is no place for a piece of poultry - unless it is in the food court.

Let's start with the roller coasters in this area of the park. If you like the excitement of a roller coaster, but are not a daredevil, take a ride on the Wildcat and Cedar Creek Mine Ride. The Wildcat is the popular boardwalk Crazy Mouse ride with a different name. Cedar Creek Mine ride looks like a wooden coaster but it is actually a steely. If you enjoy the Runaway Train in other amusement parks, this one will tickle your fancy.
If you are a little more daring then step up to the plate and get on Iron Dragon and Mean Streak. Both of these coasters have that big coaster feel without the near death feeling. Iron Dragon is a suspended coaster that reaches speeds between 35 and 40 mph. It may not be one of the fastest coasters at the Point but it is quite fun. Next is the Mean Streak. This wooden coaster is one of the largest in the country. With over 5400 feet of track and speeds up to 65 mph this baby can take your breath away.
For the extreme rider, get on the Mantis and Millennium Force. Mantis is a stand-up steel coaster that goes upside down four times and reaches speeds over 60 mph. My second favorite ride in the entire park is Millennium Force. This steel coaster takes you up 310 feet and reaches speeds up to 93 mph. When this ride first opened in the year 2000 it was the tallest and fastest coaster in the world. Don't pass this one up.
After riding these coasters you might get a bit hot. Thunder Canyon, White Water Landing and Snake River Falls are just the ticket to cool you down. Each of these rides will soak you to the bone. Thunder Canyon is a roaring rapids ride. White Water is your classic log flume and Snake River Falls is a Splash Down ride. The latter will require a change of clothes.
We are two thirds of the way through Cedar Point, but there is much more thrills and excitement to tell you about. Cedar Point is without question, the best amusement park in the world.
