Default anyone ever been to Cedar Point (an amusement part in northern Ohio)

I just got back from Cedar Point, an amusement park in Sandusky, OH. Some of the top thrill rides include the following:

Top Thrill Dragster

Millenium Force
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHFi2OtqJlw

Has anyone on here ever been there before? It's an awesome place. HOwever, I noticed one thing. I am not afraid of any of the rides, but I definately feel more sore now than I used to in the past. I am a total mess today. I feel like throwing up every 5 seconds, and my head is killing me. First sign of aging maybe? *lol*

Anyway, I would def. reccomend a trip, but it's better to spread it out over the course of 2 days.

I live about a half hour away, so it isn't as big a deal here. I mean it's fun, but the ticket prices are outrageous. I couldn't tell you the last time I went. Probably high school.

I'm not really a roller coaster type of person. I get more anxiety than enjoyment out of those things.

I know what you mean. The thing is, you really need more than one day to enjoy the park. I felt really rushed yesterday trying to squeeze everything in. The Soak City is a very underrated part of the park. I almost prefer going there than the main park on a hot, summer day.

I live about an hour or so away and I always go at least once a year. I'm plannin on going next month sometime. Even if don't get on rides its still a fun time, but if you DO like rides then like det2Orl said it's heaven on earth.

I've only been there once, but that place is awesome. I had a bad experience with the Millenium Force, though. After waiting in line for 3-4 hours, it broke down on the top hill, so they had to shut it down. I would've been on the next train. What's worse is that I was only there for one day and that was gonna be the last thing we rode. Still haven't ridden it.

Yeah, I've only been to Soak City once. After you pay the price to get into Cedar Point, it isn't worth paying for Soak City and you'll never do everything in the same day anyhow.

We went to Soak City by itself one year, spent about 3 hours there. That was a blast. Easy to get sunburned though. You can't feel the heat with all that water.

EDIT: Thinking back, it was longer than 3 hours. Like from open until 2 or 3pm maybe?

Best time I ever had at Cedar Point, we went when it rained in the morning. Nobody showed up because of it. Cleared up right after we got there. Park didn't really get busy at all until way late in the evening. That was the year the Mantis opened. We road it like 9X in a row without waiting in line.

Yes. Best thing I've ever done. Best thing you'll ever do.

Go with friends and devote one day to the park and one day to the indoor water park. See if you can beat my park record (for the day I was there at least) 3pt challenge score of 11.
