The Roller Coaster Capital of the World

The Roller Coaster Capital of the World 3

Some know it as a small little amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, others know it as the ROLLER COASTER CAPITAL OF THE WORLD.

Whatever you call it, it’s CEDAR POINT and WE GO THERE!


This summer the Eastcoast Encounter, Major League Madness East Program, AND the U.S. Explorer for the first time EVER will be visiting this thrill seekers paradise!

17 Roller Coasters Including:

Top Thrill Dragster – One of the tallest and fastest roller coasters on Earth.  Imagine being launched from 0 to 120 mph in less than 4 seconds. Then, you climb a 90° upward spiral 420 feet into the air before gliding over a hill and descending down a 270° degrees drop – all in 17 seconds! Truly breathtaking!


Millennium Force (My personal FAVORITE) – Consistently voted the number one steel roller coaster in the world, this one is not to miss. Climb 310 feet into the air before descending down an 80° drop at nearly 93 miles per hour. The two and a half minute journey is filled with twists and turns. If you’re eyes are open, don’t forget to check out the view of Lake Erie.


And, new for Summer 2010, Shoot the Rapids, one of the wettest and wildest rides around. Hopefully someone will take some pictures of the feudin’ and fightin’ taking place inside of the illegal moonshine still that you’re inevitably going to get caught in the middle of as you splash your way through this hillbilly town!


So, if you’re looking to visit the Best Amusement Park in the World, join us this summer on the Eastcoast Encounter, Major League Madness East, or U.S. Explorer.
