It would not be summer in NE Ohio without a trip to the world famous Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio! Having grown up in this area, it has always been a tradition for a yearly trip for me and my husband and we are keeping that tradition with our children.
I think my favorite part is watching our children ride the same rides we enjoyed as children. Now I get to ride them with my kids as I had once had with my parents. We know the park like the back of our hands which makes navigation a breeze, almost to the point where I am frustrated when we visit new amusement parks and I have to look at the map!
The shock to me this year was that the Magnum XL-200 was turning 25 years old! I still vividly remember riding that coaster the first year it opened, how can it possibly be 25 years old?
And you cannot forget the Snoopy characters! They are available to hug throughout the park. Cedar Point is always clean, which is something I really appreciate in an amusement park. Taking the kids there is an annual summer treat for our family!
