Arriving at Cedar Point is certainly something else, driving across the narrow causeway, it almost seems like you're journeying to some magical island, and can see the giant monsters who live there ominously looming over the skyline
Perhaps the isolated peninsula location is an underlying reason for Cedar Point's vast success, it really feels you've left the mundanities of normal ife a whole world away and all that exists in the cedar point bubble is a skyline cluttered towering amusement devices purely there to entertain and provide a true escape
A lot is written about how incredible the coasters at Cedar Point are, and deservedly so, Millennium Force, Top Thrill Dragster and the addictive Wicked Twister are very exceptional rides, there's nothing new I could say or add about these smooth, incredibly enjoyable and incredibly oversized coaster experiences.
One coaster that disappointingly didn't live up to all it's hype, was Magnum XL-200, which gave a very unpleasant ride, violently bouncing passengers up and down and abruptly jolting them from left to right.
Iron Dragon and Cedar Creek Mine Ride are two pleasant coasters, providing very scenic free forming routes alongside an inner lake. Then there's Gemini which is best described as an oversized racing mine train on crack definitely a wild ride with massive up and down lunges on steel rails resting on the wooden structured supports.
There's also a vast diversity of atmospheres within the park from the all excitement and action main midway to the shaded tranquillity of the frontier trail crafts area.
Cedar Point is a very large park, with a great amount of rides, however there is still a great sense of space, the rides are appropriately spaced out, there never seems too much crammed in and the feel never becomes intense or overpowering.
