  • My favorite thrill park. Have made the 8 hour drive for 20 years, and it really has gotten better almost yearly! Last visit was in 2018, and Steel Vengeance was the best coaster yet to me. How the...  more »

  • Something to do for everyone of all ages. Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Perhaps next time we might get a hotel or camp nearby and get a 2 day pass. There's so much to do and can't fit everything in on one day. Their motorized wheelchair with canopy is a comfortable ride. We went on a sunny day and the canopy was a life saver! Better to reserve one prior to visit as it is on a first come, first served basis if not reserved. Used it for nearly 8 hours and didn't run out of battery power. They have a locker area just beyond the entrance. Wished i had know that ahead of time...couldn't find that info on the website. No outside food allowed. Grounds are kept clean.
  • Great park. Worth the trip. Clean and not overly commercialized. Some rides were down for our entire stay, but safety first, right? Very long wait times for the most popular coasters, but plenty to make up for that. Definitely need multiple days to experience it all.
  • My husband and I took our son. We had so much fun at cedar point and the water park. They rode the rides, the lazy river was my favorite. We got the meal deal and drink deal. I totally recommend those. Great value.
  • A great place to camp while visiting the park. The only reason I didn't give it 5 was price ($118 / night.). The book said they offer lodging discount for season pass holders. When we inquired about the discount. We were told they don't do the discount. And let's face it. We brought our lodging with us. $118/ night seems to be high for a parking spot. As a comparison. Disney's Fort Wilderness campground the longer your stay. The lower the nightly rate. However Cedar Point Lighthouse point remains the same. Otherwise a clean quiet and well kept campground.
  • Some of the most popular rides were shut down. I get regular maintenance and safety, but the park should be able to coordinate maintenance to better supply the thrills they advertise to as many people as they can. Buy the fast pass. It is worth it. Hope to visit again soon. Had a blast!
