Last week, I posted about our stay at the newly renovated Hotel Breakers, however, I wanted to compose a separate post talking about our family’s visit to Cedar Point!! We arrived to the hotel and our tickets were waiting for us. Trust me, ordering through the hotel is so convenient.
I was able to visit the park last year, however my 7 year old daughter was 47.5 inches tall and couldn’t ride most of the ‘big kid rides‘ as we call them. I give Cedar Point credit, because the employees are consistent and DO check the heights of riders. What’s awesome is they have measuring centers in the park that provide your child with a wrist band to save the hassle of being measured each time they want to get on a ride. Although we were bummed last summer, this year our now 8 year old, taller dare devil was ready to conquer all the rides for 48 inches and shorter. We began our adventure with the Magnum! We rode all the roller coasters that our 48 inch tall daughter could ride, and we even stopped in to visit Camp Snoopy. I strongly suggest checking height requirements prior to going and making sure you and your family have a plan. They have TONS of other activities for families along with parts of the park dedicated to riders that are under 48 inches tall.
As we continued our day, we did take a small break and head back to our hotel room at Hotel Breakers. It is SO close and convenient to stay there. All you need is a stamp and you are allowed to come and go as you please that day. The picture above was taking from the parking lot at Hotel Breakers!
We walked through the park and visited some of our favorite rides, including the Blue Streak, Gemini, and Iron Dragon. We were also able to check out some of our favorite things to do and to eat. My daughter and I always stop in Camp Snoopy and get a hair wrap. I know it sounds silly, but this is the 3rd time we have done it together there. It is like a tradition now. She gets the biggest kick out of being twinsies with Mommy! In addition to hair wraps, they have tattoos, face painting, braids, charactertures, and so many games to play! Yes, we always play the ‘guess your age game’! My hubby and I look a lot younger than what we really are, so normally Kelsey, our daughter wins a prize!! Aside from our favorite rides, we were able to ride ones we had never ridden before like the Millenium Force and Rougarou! Due to height constraints our daughter could not go on it, but my hubby was able to experience it and he loved it! Have I mentioned, that our daughter’s favorite ride was the Millenium Force! I must agree that my hubby and I were scared to death, but the roller coater was smooth and the wait was short! We cannot wait to go back and ride it again!
The park is always such a blast! The park is clean, always ran well, workers are friendly and helpful, and there is just SO much to do for people of all ages! Although we didn’t make it there, I have been to Soak City before. I have always enjoyed my time there, and I intend on taking my daughter there in the future. With summer in full swing, Cedar Point has extended hours, so please check out the dates and times prior to going! As I mentioned in my last post, Hotel Breakers does offer early entrance to the park when you stay there. So there are all sorts of perks there too.
Anyway, we plan on visiting again very soon! Cedar Point is always a fun trip for our family! Can’t wait to go back!
