Attractions
Many consider Cedar Point "The Mecca" for coaster enthusiasts. Millennium Force, Maverick, and Top Thrill Dragster are considered to be the top coasters, but Wicked Twister, Raptor, Rougarou, and Gemini still provide fun for many, and Blue Streak is an under-appreciated wood coaster. Gatekeeper provides a majestic looking entry way but doesn't deliver the intensity.

But this doesn't mean that the park is lacking in flat rides. Cedar Point has the only fully operational Derby Racer in the world, Cedar Downs Racing Derby. Windseeker, SkyHawk, MaXair, and Shoot the Rapids are new additions to the park, which, along with Power Tower, provide non-coaster thrills.
Food
Standard amusement-park fare is available all over the park, punctuated with a couple of fast-food chains: Subway, Panda Express, and Johnny Rockets. Midway Market offers all-you-can-eat buffets, and Game Day Grille has some unique food options. Many people like to leave the park and walk to Famous Dave's BBQ in the Marina or head to the Breakers for Perkins or TGIFriday's. For the more sophisticated palate, finer dining with no dress code is available in the Marina at Bay Harbor.
Operating Season
Daily operation starts around the second weekend in May and continues through Labor Day.
Established Seasonal events
Halloweekends is the park's Friday-Sunday Halloween event in October.
Access & Location
Cedar Point is located on a Lake Erie peninsula in Sandusky, Ohio. Nearby major cities include Cleveland (60 miles), Toledo (62 miles), Detroit (115 miles), and Columbus (120 miles).

Take the Ohio Turnpike to Exit 118 (US 250) and follow the signs north, or take Exit 110 (SR 4) and follow Route 4 north. Once you get to Sandusky, just follow the signs to the Cedar Point Causeway.

Greyhound (bus) and Amtrak (train) provide connections from Cleveland, but a taxi will be necessary for traveling from the bus/train station to the park.
Nearby Lodging
Cedar Point has multiple lodging options on-site. Breakers, Castaway Bay (includes indoor waterpark), Sandcastle Suites, Lighthouse Point (cabins/cottages), Camper Village (for RVs), and Breakers Express, which is slightly off the grounds. Guests of Cedar Point hotels are allowed entry to the park one hour before the park opens. Nearly every midlevel hotel chain has substandard and overpriced accomodations near the park.
Virtual Queue Options
In 2012, Cedar Point started implementing their "Fast Lane" (skip the line) service.
