Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky Ohio is one of the premier amusement parks in the country. It is located in Northern Ohio, in between Toledo and Cleveland.
There is no other place in the Midwest like Cedar Point. The rides are amazing, each year they introduce another major monster, living up to their name of "America's Roller Coast". They have the Millennium, which takes people up higher than the Statue of liberty and drops them at a 80 degree angle straight down! Or the Top Thrill Dragster, flying off the ground at speeds near 100 mph, and dropping you over 300 feet straight down-there is not another rush around like that one!
The accommodations are around the park and also in there-it is not a huge variety, but there are simple to pricey available. For a family, I would recommend an offsite locale and driving the 10 minuets or so in to the park. There is no childcare service in the park, so it is not an applicable category really.
The food choices, although numerous, are probably some of the most expensive I have ever seen at a park or amusement center. They average simple meal-drink, burger and fries is going to set you back about 12.00 or more. There is a good selection of food eateries, including barbecue and even a buffet!
There are other areas to pay for, including miniature golf and a water park-so it can get a bit expensive overall. But the park itself is more than enough to keep anyone busy for the day-there are so many rides and choices out there it is hard to not be entertained the whole of the day.
I highly recommend this as a fun place for both young and old to go and have a good time as a family.
