Get to the Point

Today I'm in Sandusky, Ohio, enjoying some quality relaxation time with Josh's family. His parents, being the extremely generous people that they are, took Josh and I along with Josh's sister and her boyfriend, to Cedar Point for the weekend. We are staying for 2 nights, last night and tonight. It's a 4 hour drive from home, so it's so nice to have a hotel for both nights. I've only ever visited when we either get up really early and visit the park all day and then stay the night and drive home, or leave home during the middle of the day and stay the night and then go to the park the next day. I'm sure that having both nights in Sandusky will be a welcome, relaxing mini-vacation.

Here are a few of my favorite rides at Cedar Point: (click the links for more pics and info)

Iron Dragon - the first coaster I've ever ridden. It's a classic ride - nice and slow, no super high hills, but lots of fun!

Millennium Force - SO MUCH FUN! A 300 ft hill with a super steep drop and fast speeds. This one is my favorite, especially with my hands raised high riding in the front seat!

Raptor - This is another classic Cedar Point ride. I remember when it was built, and I was terrified of it. But now, it's a good warm up for some of the taller, faster rides. I love this one because my feet dangle and you "Kick the Sky"

Have you ever been to Cedar Point? What are your favorite rides? Know of any other great rides at other amusement parks? I'd love to go!

I love the Iron Dragon. It was the first roller coaster I had ever ridden.

Duuuude!! I wanna gooooo! Millenium Force is hands down my fave... very closely followed by classic Raptor. I could ride Raptor at least 10 times in a row! Did you go on Top Thrill Dragster? That thing is craaazy.
