Cleveland Rocks pt. ll ~ Get To The Point Already!

To read pt. 1 of the Cleveland Rocks series, click here.

It's no secret to any of my regular readers that I love Cedar Point* and for good reason.  It has been voted "Best Amusement Park in the World" 9 years in a row thanks to 75 rides, including 17 roller coasters.  It's a thrill seekers dream park.  The world class coasters of CP are some of the best I have ever experienced.  Whether it's the Top Thrill Dragster, the Maverick, Millennium Force or others, your adrenaline will get pumping.

Many of you are thinking, 'WeaselMomma, you're Nuts! With 5 kids why would you even be interested in more adventure in your life? You already have enough heart pounding chaos on a daily basis to jump start Frankenstein's Monster'.  To that I say, You're right, I am nuts, but I sure do like to have fun!

For those of you who aren't thrill seekers or have younger and less adventurous children, I have good news for you too.  CP is well planned out to be family friendly with 4 different ride areas for the younger crowd dispersed throughout the park and intermediate family rides sprinkled among the top thrill rides.  So, you won't get stuck at the front of the park in 'Baby Ride Land'  as my way too adventurous for her own good 6 year old sneers about it while she rolls her eyes, all day long.

Also, the park is located right on the coast of Lake Erie and offers direct beach access to the warmest of the Great Lakes.  Some of your family wants the thrill rides, some of them just want to chill and splash?  Yeah, WeaselMomma has got your back.

Oh, what's that?  You don't want sand, wah, wah, wah??????  Well, I have you covered their too.  The Hotel Breakers, conveniently located adjacent to the park and beach access also has a beautiful pool, complete with a bar for you lushy types.  It's a gorgeous hotel built in 1905, that through years has held onto its early 20th century charm while still keeping up with the modern world offerings, such as wi-fi.

Oh, now you think you can stump me with 'What if I want thrills mixed with sun and splashing?"  Yes, I can read your mind.  Smart Alec.  You can't stump me that easily!  For you, I offer the Cedar Point Soak City Water Park!  Yup, acre upon acre of wet thrills and fun.  You thought you had me there!

Starting September 17 and running through Halloween, CP is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday for HalloWeekends.  Four haunted houses, five spooked out nighttime attractions, daytime fun and a parade for the little ones and Halloween thrills for all.  I've never experienced this event, but am hoping to enjoy it along with the beach and hotel, this year with my family so that I can come back and tell you all about it.  It sounds great and I am betting that the Weasels will completely melt down.  lynch WeaselMomma be very disappointed if we don't, as they themselves are big fans of the park and have been begging for Halloweekends ever since they read about it online.  Needless to say, they know that I am a sucker for the Point.

Just to throw some whipped cream and cherries on top for you, CP is clean and very well maintained.  Everything from the walkways to the restrooms are lovingly cared for, making it a genuinely family friendly experience.  Located about an hour west of Cleveland, in Sandusky, OH, it's only a 5 hour drive from the Chicago area and an ever shorter trek from Columbus or Pittsburgh.  Basically, it's a one tank trip from the mid~Atlantic states and much of the Midwest.

Just remember, WeaselMomma is definitely your go-to person on all things Cedar Point.  Now just get to the Point already!
