Started in 1870 Cedar Point is the second oldest amusement park in the United States.

Originally it began as a beach destination where families enjoyed the golden sandy beaches of Lake Erie.

As it grew in popularity rides were added to the park.

In 1978 the Gemini roller coaster was opened and was the first roller coaster that went above the trees.

Cedar Point continued to build the fastest, tallest, and biggest adrenaline filled coasters ever since.

They have been voted the best Amusement Park in the WORLD 13 times and it shows in the pride and attention to family fun that shines through at Cedar Point.


There are 70+ rides, 18 coasters, 8 theatrical shows, character interactions, and over 35 places to grab a drink or bite to eat.

Rides at Cedar Point include everything from a steam engine train ride around part of the park, to rides the spin, to coasters that range from mild to “WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?!?!?”.

I like the rides that stay on the ground so I’m a big fan of merry-go-rounds (Cedar Point has 3), the train, and cars that drive around a track.

Even though I like the mild side of the park I still have a great time visiting.

Coming in just behind Millennium Force for speed is Valravn at 75 mph and climbs to 223′. This ride lasts 2 minutes and 23 seconds.
