Last weekend we had the most amazing time at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. We were there for HalloWeekends, which was a new experience for us as Halloween is not celebrated in Sri Lanka. The park will close for the year after next weekend. So I will share a few clicks we took and see if I could entice you to go there in future!
Cedar Point has 16 roller coasters …
Most of the roller coasters are rated as aggressive thrills, with few rated as either high or mild. Aggressive thrills usually have long waiting lines (unless you pay more and opt for Fast Lane entrance). We had to wait for like 2 hours in line to ride Valravn; the latest addition to the park which also the world’s tallest, fastest, and longest dive coaster, and it was well worth it. Valravn ride begins by dangling you at the top for approximately four seconds, and then kaboom, you are dropped! The 1.58 minutes I spent on the ride are the most terrifying seconds in my life, but hey, at least I get the bragging rights. So I am not complaining! 😀
… and 17 thrill rides
In no mood for roller coasters? That’s fine! You can ride in one of the many thrill rides the park has to offer. The rides range from moderate to aggressive thrills, so you can have your pick.
The decorations are incredible!
After having done two aggressive rated roller coasters and one thrill ride, I was not feeling courageous enough to take anymore action filled rides. So we spent sometime roaming around the park enjoying the Halloween decorations.
At night mazes with horror filled nightmares come to live
You can try any of the six haunted houses or many scare zones in the park. We went to Eden Musee where creepy wax figures come to life and G.A. Boeckling’s Eerie Estate which is full of ancient inhabitants looking for permanent residents! Both houses were toe-curling scary and the perfect way to end the night!
