Cedar Point, located just outside of Sandusky about 1 1/2 hours' drive from downtown Cleveland, is consistently rated as one of America's favorite amusement parks. The 364-acre park is home to 17 roller coasters, a white sand beach, a classic merry-go-round, four children's areas and a plethora of shops, food stands and exciting rides.
Tickets are available from Cedar Point--online, by mail, by phone or in person at the attraction's onsite ticket office (open seasonally). However, several discounts are available, both from the park itself and from other area retailers.
If you plan to visit Cedar Point more than twice in one season, you can save money by purchasing a season pass. Passes for 2014 start at $120.00 per adult and you can make six equal payments. There is also a platinum season pass for $186.00 that also includes unlimited admission to Soak City, free parking, early ride times and admission and parking to other Cedar Fair parks, including King's Island near Cincinnati. Visit the Cedar Point Web site for all the details.
