This is hands down the best “coaster” amusement park we have ever been to, and we are coaster junkies. Most parks you can easily knock out in a day, but this one I would recommend at least two even with fast passes. The wait on some of the rides for regular lines were greater than 2hrs. even 45+min for fast pass holders. That’s another point I would like to make, either stay onsite at Breakers (where you can enter the park early and knock out as much as you can) and go during the week, or you better have a fast pass! The lines do NOT move if the park is busy, and the fast passers are just piling on in front of you (the price equals out the same-and by staying at Breakers, you can go back to your room if you like). Another thing to take into mind is the fact if the winds are over a certain speed, a lot of the bigger rides are not running, and this park sits on an island in the middle of a lake... but that is what makes this park so exceptional is the beauty of it/the views! Also, I would like to mention that this is the cleanest park we have ever been to, even the buildings and rides look new and immaculate (then again this was the beginning of the season). We WILL be back! ♥️

We could not have had a better time at Cedar Point! This park is huge and honestly has something for everyone. We spent several days there and could have stayed longer, there's so much to do and see. The park itself is beautiful with the surrounding lake, and they do a nice job keeping flowers/fountains/landscaping up around the park. You'll do a lot of walking, but there are also benches and shade everywhere. Every employee we interacted with was great and super friendly. As far as rides, CP is hard to top. I didn't ride a single thing I didn't love, which I can't say about any other park I've visited. I really liked the variety of rides at different intensities, so you can work your way up, or just stick with what you loved. There are coasters for all sorts of riders: great wooden coasters, mild coasters, and some giants. It's nice that if you're with someone who isn't sure about an element, there are is probably a coaster that does a mild version of it for them to try. For example, you can ride Magnum before you try Millennium Force, or try out inversions on Corkscrew before heading to a bigger coaster. We didn't have kids with us, but there are a lot of nice kids areas throughout the park that looked really cute! One last thing that really stood out to me about CP is how safe it is. I've never been to a park that checked my restraints quite so many times I was getting my seatbelt tightened on rides that don't even HAVE seatbelts at some other parks.

Cedar Point is a great full day activity that I think everyone should experience in their lifetime. Cedar is home to some of the most famous roller coasters in the world, and it definitely lived up to the expectations. There were plenty of amazing roller coasters for both the people who want the fastest and craziest rides and for the people who like something a little calmer. We were in Ohio for a family reunion and every person in our group had a fun time at Cedar Point. There were a decent amount of lines to wait in, but nothing too crazy considering we were at one of the most popular amusement parks, in the middle of the summer. Visiting this amusement park is a worthwhile experience that will be fun for any age.

"Roller Coasters were Good"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed May 23, 2019 NEW
This park is very, very large. Most of the roller coasters are really cool and well worth the trip. We went on a Monday and stayed on property so we were able to enter an hour early. Good thing because once the other rides opened all the wait times were over an hour. Which is ok but the park was not even busy. Some rides didn't open until 11 or 12, 1 to 2 hours after opening time. And there were many rides that didn't open at all. We were unable to determine if some rides would open later or the reason why they were closed. There was one coaster that has 2 cars that run side by side and they were only running one car. The worker's advised it was because of attendance at the park that day being low. But isn't that the point of that roller coaster?? A bunch of food places were closed leaving us to wait in line almost an hour anywhere to get food. The park was clean and offered things for younger children to do as well. I just thought it was run weird and my son was bit disappointed as we travelled 5 states and he was unable to ride many of the rides that he had hoped for.

It had been 10 years since our last visit. It did not disappoint. The park was clean and staff was friendly. I did not hear obscenity language as I often do at other parks. Wait times for the coasters were reasonable. Choice of food and drink were great. Plenty of seating throughout the park and no hills! My girls are roller coaster enthusiasts, so this was perfect.
