CEDAR POINT The amazing Cedar Point amusement park is located in Sandusky, Ohio, and has been an American favorite for many years. Cedar Point is over 300 acres in size, and is the second-oldest operational amusement park in the United States. The new Cedar Point Shores Water Park is a blast of summer fun in the sun, offering up exceptional dining options and an array of tasty treats, as well as plenty of water slides and attractions. Ride the Fisher- men’s Fury, or float through the Runaway Rapids, which is not your average lazy river. With twists, turns, and water- falls at every corner, you’ll want to keep an eye out while lounging on your tube! With over 30 different roller coasters and thrill rides, you’ll never be bored while at Cedar Point. Opt for a season pass if you’re going to be in the amusement park mood all summer long, otherwise a day pass will cost you just about $50. No matter what you’re looking for in an amusement park, whether it’s history and adventure, or adrenaline rushes and fast passes, these parks are must-visits this season. Be sure to check each park’s individual website for up- coming events, deals on tickets, hotels in the area, and more!
