Quote: The "King of all Amusement Parks" makes its home in Sandusky, Ohio. Cedar Point. I can tell you about how beautiful the area of Sandusky, Ohio is in this journal, but I am not going to. It is all about the roller coasters, my friends. Don't wait, go now.

How can I even begin to describe how great Sandusky, Ohio and Cedar Point is? If you are going to Sandusky you must go to Cedar Point. The best attractions in Cedar Point are the rollercoasters. How many coasters make their home in Cedar Point? Sixteen. That is right: sixteen. Three for the little kiddies and thirteen for the enthusiast---well, maybe just seven for the thrill seekers. Everywhere you turn inside this place there is another coaster. Now if you don't like coasters you should go home. Just kidding. This park is absolutely beautiful and is maintained wonderfully. There are rides here for everyone, from the ferris wheel to the log flume. Try a show or play games for prize...Read More

We stayed at the Sandcastle Suites Hotel when we visited Cedar Point for 4th of July weekend this year. The Sandcastle is located on the Cedar Point Peninsula and is one of Cedar Point’s own resorts. Staying at one of the Cedar Point resorts is extremely convenient. By staying at the Sandcastle we had access to the Cedar Point shuttle buses, parking is free, and best of all, we had the opportunity to enter Cedar Point Theme Park an hour earlier than the general public. This is great because rides such as the Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster attract a crowd quickly and waits can be hours. Getting to the Sandcastle Suites Hotel is simple and easy. When you are arriving at the front g...Read More

My opinion of the Cedar Point amusement park is well documented in this journal. It is the best amusement park in the world. Hands down! Cedar Point is a large amusement park and it is impossible for me to write everything in one entry, so I will be piecing out Cedar Point in three installments and then dedicate another installment describing each of the sixteen roller coasters. In this entry I will tell you about the section of the amusement park located just after the main entrance. If you walk to the left hand side of the park you will see a couple of roller coasters. One is the Blue Streak, which is a wooden coaster and also is the first coaster built at Cedar Point. The second is Ra...Read More

After you are through with the front area of the park, follow the path to the left and you will find a couple of great roller coasters and some other fun attractions. This area of the park boasts six roller coasters, three water rides and a relaxing railroad ride. A thrill-seeker’s paradise. The only relaxing rides I can remember here are the Antique Car ride and Cedar Point Railroad. So buckle up and throw on your adventure switch to go. 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 dif...Read More

We are now in the last section of the park. From the entrance of the park follow the paved path straight and take a right turn at the fork in the road. That is right, I saved the best for last. 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...Read More
