Cedar Point Amusement Park, located in Sandusky Ohio just outside of Cleveland, is a paradise for rollercoaster lovers. Named 'Best Amusement Park in the World' many times over, it is the only park to have four rollercoasters taller than 200 feet (61m).

It is the only amusement park of its size within hundreds of miles. If those are too high, there are 13 others to choose from, along with dozens of other rides and attractions for all ages. Cedar Point also boasts an indoor and outdoor waterpark.

On top of this, it has a white sand beach, two marinas, and Challenge Park, which offers go-karts and miniature golf as well as several thrill rides. One of the oldest theme parks in the USA, Cedar Point has been operating since 1870.
