The self-proclaimed “rollercoaster capital of the world,” Cedar Point put Sandusky, Ohio on the map as one of the Midwest’s premier tourist destinations. Opened way back in 1870, it is the second-oldest operating amusement park in the continental United States (most of it a designated historic place), and has achieved a number of other milestones, including being the only amusement park in the world with four roller coasters taller than 61m.
The park has reached several milestones. It is the only amusement park in the world with six roller coasters that are at least 61 m in height – Magnum XL-200, Millennium Force, Wicked Twister, Top Thrill Dragster, Valravn, and Steel Vengeance – as well as the only one with roller coasters in all four height classifications. Cedar Point also received the Golden Ticket Award for “Best Amusement Park in the World” from Amusement Today for 16 consecutive years from 1997 to 2013.
Cedar Downs Racing Derby, a carousel and a race, it is one of only two in the country and listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. For awesome views, head to Skyhawk, the world’s largest swinging ride. If you like the sensation of freefalling, the Power Tower is the only four-towered drop tower ride in the world, devoting two towers to each cycle for a maximum adrenaline rush.
There are two dedicated kiddie areas, Camp Snoopy and Planet Snoopy, along with family friendly attractions scattered throughout the park that include antique car tracks and a gondola lift. The waterpark and the Go Kart Track are good options to keep the teenagers busy (you must be at least 16 to ride).
