If you like coasters, and major adrenaline rides, and spinny-puke-your-guts-out-later rides, then this, this is the place for you.
If you're an amusement park junky, this is the best place to get your fix. They literally have just about darn near everything. But as far as enjoying it with the family, with younger not so coastering kids, this is the greatest place for that. Yes there is a kiddy area, but its pretty small compared to others. But for fast, tall, steep, crazy coasters, they've got it all. Some of which were the first (and first record holders) of their kind. Make sure you have comfortable walking shoes, as its a haul from one end of the park to the other.
As far as the coasters go, there's tall, there's fast, there's loops abound. There is also plenty of spinning rides such as a Matterhorn, about 4 different scramblers. Altho I'm sure if you're looking it up, you already have a good clue as to what you're getting into, so as a coaster enthusiast myself, let me just add some tips for you.
~After you go through the parking tolls, continue to the right and follow the road all the way to back and park by Gemini/Soak City (the water park)/Challenge park. This offers the closest/least busy parking, and least line at the entrance gate.
~If you're a pass holder or hotel guest that gets in early, this is the best place to go (other than the marina gate) to get to Maverick and Millennium Force first thing before the lines get incredibly long.
~ Midway Market, up front across from the Raptor entrance offers the best meal deal. It's $12.95 for an adult including a drink for all you can eat buffet including awesome desserts. They unfortunately don't offer a pass hold discount :(
~There is also Famous Daves in the Marina that is more of a sit down restaurant, without the CP prices. You can exit the Marina gate by the bumper cars and Good Times Theatre and eat there if you prefer.
~Top Thrill Dragsters line will always be long. There's nothing around it. If you're wanting to get the infamous rollback, I suggest going there first, as the lines will only get longer as the day goes on.
Also, if you go on a weekend (mainly Saturdays) in the summer, expect the lines to be at least 2 hours long. And no, I'm not kidding. Cedar Point is a destination/vacation park, that's why people are there. stick to the weekdays and Sundays if you can
If you're there for Halloweekends during sept/october, yes it is kid friendly. There's only one area where its kind of hard to avoid walking through, unless you take the train. I recommend Cornstalkers, and Eerie Estates. Their scare zone in Frontierville is also top notch.

It's a full scale amusement park that many people haven't heard of unless you've been to Ohio. But in Ohio, this place is legendary. A lot of fun for kids and families!

Have season passes and go 2-3 times a wk. with family. Soak City is a nice waterpark. If u love roller coasters this is the amusement park for you! Lots of fun things to do as a family too. Children areas are equally as nice.Decent shows but def not Disney. Expensive but nice picnic area that is connected to the amusement park, we take a cooler and no one has ever bothered our things.

One of the best amusement parks I have been to, & I have been to a LOT, and probably the best in terms of roller coasters. So if your a thrill seeker it's a must! Can't say much the for young kinds since I don't have any but from what I saw plenty for them to do too.

Probably the cleanest amusement park in the United States next to Disney World in Florida! This park draws roller coaster enthusiasts from around the world and features some of the highest, fastest and most breathtaking rides available. The park is built on a peninsula overlooking Lake Erie with beautiful scenery! Lots of great shows, excellent firework displays and you must come to Halloweekends! You won't be disappointed with Cedar Point.....guaranteed!

The best theme park in the nation!!! All the other theme parks that are rollercoaster heavy have nothing on Cedar Point. Cedar Point is definitely for not the faint at heart when it comes to rollercoasters. All the rollercoasters have high descents which make you feel like you are falling; it makes the experience even more exhilarating. Even with the shady restraints, after the initial descent, I felt fine on all the rides I went on. Millennium Force is definitely the ride to go on! There are a lot of dips and twists but it is a long ride (2 mins) so it is a must ride! Driving to Ohio for Cedar Point is worth it! The park itself is massive so there is a lot of rides to do and attractions to check if you are not the rollercoaster type.

We stayed at the hotel at Cedar Point with a deal of two nights and early entrance into the park. My husband loves roller coasters and these are some of the best. Me I take pictures. Great place. Nice room on the lake.

Great Park listed several years ago as the largest amusement park in the country! Since Disney world and Universal are both listed as theme parks Cedar point is the way to go!!!! I just came back from Phoenix and everyone I met asked if I had ever been, and most said their water parks in the west don't even compare!!!! They are Building a new coaster and should be ready next year!!!!!
