I love taking my family to Cedar Point. We took a trip there in May just before school ended. We were invited to visit the park as part of a blogger’s day and since my sister’s family was attending too, the rest of our family decided to join up with us. Twelve of the fourteen of us were able to meet up after lunch and spent most of the rest of the day together.
We started our day in Kiddy Kingdom since we had kids ranging from 3 up to 15 with us.
Later on we split up – some of the adults and older kids went to ride some roller coasters while my family stayed behind in Camp Snoopy. I am a scaredy cat so I was happy to watch my kids enjoy their rides and at times join in with them.
It was nice being able to split up so the coaster fans were able to get their ride time in and the kids all got their time to ride what THEY all wanted to ride, and to spend time with their cousins, which is always enjoyed. I love that Cedar Point has so many areas filled with children’s rides to keep a family day kid friendly.
When you’re visiting Cedar Point for the day there are many choices on where to eat and get drinks throughout the park. If you’re visiting with your family and want a cheaper way to eat, I suggest splitting some of chicken tenders meals. We’ve done that each time we’ve visited and it works great for us. It’s also a good idea to go ahead and get a refillable cup. It’s worth it to be able to get cheaper drinks throughout the day and you go home with a reusable souvenir cup. Also, take note – Cedar Point offers FREE cups of water. As a parent, I was very thankful to discover that the first time we took our little ones a couple of years ago. It was comforting to know that I could go up to any stand and get some water for the kids to cool down.
I really recommend visiting Cedar Point with your own family – no matter the size! There is something for everyone, and it definitely leaves children with great memories of when they went to a big amusement park with their cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents!
At the time of our visit, there were some new coasters to check out. My husband did not get to personally try either of those out (remember, he’s the coaster guy). We were saving those for a little later in the evening. As we headed over to that area, we found out my dad had passed out and was on the way to the ER. (The rest of the night/early morning is a whole other story. He’s fine though and went home the next day.) Even though we can’t personally write about an experience on those rides, we still want to let you know what they are.

Riders sit in one of eight “eagles” suspended from arms 28 feet in the air. As the ride spins, the eagles swing outward – and riders have the unique opportunity to control their flight experience from mild to wild!
The Pipe Scream rocks and rolls you on over 302 feet of track, flying 43 feet above the midway at 43 mph! Twist and spin on what’s being called “the best of a roller coaster and a flat ride in one.”
