    Awesome
    Went Monday May 29th, and Tuesday May 30th. We had fast lane plus passes both days, and only rode mainly the roller coasters, Max Air, Sky Hawk, Wind Seeker, the bumper cars and the big wheel, and the sky lift ride and train. The workers at the park are nice, food options for all day dining was a lot better than what they do at King's Island, as in more selection and portions of food, so I highly recommend the all day premium dining, eat every 90 minutes, and get a drink every 15 minutes and almost all the restaurants accept the plans. Also highly recommend the fast lane plus. We were able to ride the rides multiple times and some we may have waited 5-20 minutes, while the normal lines for most rollercoasters was 75 plus minute wait. There is so much to see and do here, if you've never been you'll want 2 full days at the park. Cedar Point Shores water park had 80% of the slides, lazy river and other water attractions shut down and only one main restaurant open due to low staffing. They said that should be back open fully by second week of June 2023? Also the beach is amazing to see, if you don't mind stepping over a bunch of dead fish. Will definitely visit this park again someday.

    Fun rides and clean park. There are a lot of bugs and dead fish smell by the beach. Seagulls will bomb you periodically but the rides are worth it. Get the drink ride and refresh pass. Food is very pricey. Many rides go down especially Millennium Force but Steel Vengeance, Gatekeeper and Maverick are worth the wait. Fast pass worth it for Maverick and Valryvn.

    Amusement Park Nirvana!!
    Planned a Monday, Tuesday early summer Cedar Point trip from California. Six Flags Magic Mountain is our home park. Cedar Point is head and shoulders above Six Flags. Operations were all at peak efficiency. One caveat is we paid for Fast Lane Plus which cut Millennium Force and Maverick wait in half, Valrayvn by 3/4 or more. It maybe trimmed 15-25 minutes off Steel Vengence. For Gatekeeper it was 15-30 off the wait. We did the Fast Lane on Monday focusing on all these marquee rides. On Tuesday we rode all the “lesser wait time” rides. This system worked well for us. We also stayed at Castaway Bay which was fine. It gave us early access to the park which was ok less so for the rides and more so for our non-fast lane day where we could get to the back of the park to line up for Maverick and Steel Vengence before the hoards came. Anyway, it was a fabulous trip.

    Trip with grandkids
    We took our grandkids to Cedar Point in June and they had a great time. The youngest had to miss a few rides due to height, but still had fun. We went two days on a Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesday was by far the better day as crowds were smaller and lines shorter. We didn't get to ride all of the roller coasters as Thursday's lines were 1 1/2 hours for a few. We bought the all day dining and the food was ok with the exception of Back Beat BBQ which was amazing! The kids enjoyed exiting the park to the beach and playing in Lake Erie and then returning back into the park. The only downside was the park could us better signage. We also couldn't get the app to work and requested a paper map which they said they didn't have, but once I had them try to download the app on my phone and they realized it didn't work, they gave me one which was very helpful.

    Coasters!!!
    Awesome roller coasters, 15 of them and 2 or 3 were down or being replaced. Buy your tickets online or it’s $80 at the gate. If u don’t want to wait 2-3 hours for a ride the fast pass for $139 is expensive but def cuts your time in line. Long lines for food cuz of staff shortages so better to bring your food.

    We love Cedar Point just not the food prices.
    Visited on a Monday-Tuesday. Monday was off and on rain showers most of the day but despite the rain, rides still ran. The rain kept the crowd away. Rode every single coaster and many of them multiple times. Didn’t even have a fast pass. It is a very nice park. It is extremely clean and landscaped beautifully. Stayed at Lighthouse Point in a cottage. Didn’t like that the refrigerator was a mini fridge. The set up of the cottage wasn’t the greatest. The view was nice. The cottage was clean. The staff at check in was rude. Our cottage wasn’t ready at 4 the day we checked in but they were in a hurry to get us out of there the day of our departure. Cleaning crew showed up to clean while we were still packing up and it was way before 11. The restrooms at the pool at Lighthouse Point were disgusting.

    Awesome!
    We went on a weekday and had a blast with minimal lines. Minus a handful of rides, we mostly were in line less than 10 minutes. We took advantage of fun day offer for 1 person which was such a great deal.

    Coasters, yes! Food, no!
    My son and I are roller coaster fans and the coasters did not disappoint. We went for two days (Monday and Tuesday) and rode every coaster and our favorites 2 or 3 times. Not as much to do if you are not a fan of roller coasters (or older than 6 - they do have a good selection of kiddie rides). Food left a lot to be desired. The hamburger they kept advertising on the monitors in line for rides as “the best in the world” tasted like warm, wet cardboard. Pizza was ok. We bought the meal plans which say you can eat every 90 minutes but we didn’t realize they did not include snacks, only meals, so if you want a pretzel or an ice cream cone you still pay full price with the meal plan. Overall I would recommend if you love roller coasters but be prepared to overpay for food that is underwhelming.

    To be young again
    Now I'm a little older now and bigger I didn't fit in the rides , the rollercoasters jerked my body in positions it's never been. I did have fun but at age 50 I was kinda bummed out on the rides . The food was good at the steak place I had a decent meal I used my gold pass got the discount , still my meal costed close to $40 . I'm heading there today for a second go at it.

    Great park, great service
    Not only is the park great, clean, and the roller coasters are all amazing, their customer service and staff are second to none. My family has had a great experience when taking a family vacation here and staying at Castaway Bay, and even when a mistake was made on our arrival date, they accommodated us and went above and beyond to make it right. The fast pass plus ticket is pretty expensive (in my opinion), but all 4 of our teens sure loved heading to the front of the long lines! Cedar Point and their hotels are nice places to stay and still within the average family’s budget.

Absolute junk. The lines were awful, many rides were out of service and the kids area had limited openings. The food in the entire park is zero stars. A vendor stole my daughter’s phone and we caught him. The “artist” doing cartoon drawings charged my 12 year old $75 for a drawing without disclosing the price first. The people working there are like carnies. Way too expensive for such a below average experience. There is no security and too many kids are left unsupervised.

As a coaster enthusiast I was blown away by this park! There was so much to do in one day but we managed to get on most of the bigger coasters. I would definitely love to come back and enjoy everything we missed. We only have one day to come to the park on Mothers day. It was a very memorable experience. I was glad I purchased the express passes to reduce line time however I was very let down that TT2 was closed which I had paid extra for in my express pass. Gemini was also unavailable that day and Valrvn had many break downs unfortunately. Guest services told me we could always come back another day except I explained to her that we flew in from Las Vegas for this experience so we don't have the luxury of just coming back within the year. They could have at least offered to give us some food/drink passes to make up for the money I wasted up grading my express pass for a ride that was not available to me. Food and drink at the park was very pricey for what we were given. I think I paid over $20 for 3 tiny pieces of beef that was very dry.
We did pay for the photo package to capture all our fun pics and that was totally worth it. The people at the booths were very helpful when getting your pics centered just right also. Sometimes they don't come out correctly on the kiosk but they can crop them for you if you ask.

My family was using the disabled passes to go on rides. My dad was in a motorcycle accident 2 years ago. Almost died, the right side of his body is completely titanium. He can’t stand for long periods. This Venus lady ridiculed him, accused my family of lying to get a pass. She is incredibly ableist. Everything else about our visit was great, except this interaction. Felt incredibly unwelcomed

Get It Together Cedar Point! So incredibly disgusted with your accuracy, efficiency, and ride availability! Made the extra effort to come all the way up here for Mother's Day & to get up super early to get in for early coaster rides. Instead of telling us Millennium Force was down, employees directed to the back of the park to ride it at 9 am, only to eventually learn it was down & no idea when it would open. NO ANNOUNCEMENT to the folks standing line, wasting their time. Finally walked ALL THE WAY back to Gate keeper at the opposite end & finally got on ONE.... Only 1 early ride by the time is was after 10. Had bought FUN PIX & planned to get our photo...but the pictures were only of our FEET!! Tried to use the app to find coasters to ride while it was still early, only to learn 7 (many the most popular) of the 17 coasters in the park we're closed! Maverick FINALLY opened and said less than a 15 minute wait, but we learned after walking ALL THE WAY to the other side of the park that the line was actually 1:25 min!! I like I'm spending Mother's Day getting jerked around by Cedar Point's ineptness! I don't think I have any desire to return! So disappointed! 😢😡

If you love roller coasters this is the place to be. The views of Lake Erie from Millennium Force, Magnum xl-200, Steel Vengeance are amazing. The most breathtaking views were on Top Thrill 2 you saw the lake all around you. I love rides with good water or wooded views. The staff that I had interactions with whether ride operators or restaurants were friendly and knowledgeable. Even when rides went down the hard working ride maintenance team had them up and running again in an acceptable amount of time. This is my favorite park and I have been to a few.

The experience was great. I have gone 4 times now and it's always a blast. I would have given a higher rating but this last time I went, it took a hour and a half to leave the park. I walked out of the park entrance at 7:45 but wasn't able to leave the parking lot until 9:32. I feel like there could be a better way to organize it, but all in all, a great weekend trip.

We had a great time. We were two families with kids aged from 13 to 18. We spent the entire day at Cedar Point. We brought our own picnic lunch. The slides and activities varied in difficulty and scariness. Plenty for people of different ages and abilities.

Insane to me that a billion dollar doesn't have the functionality to process a gift card online. Cedar point is running a holiday special on admission tickets and you can only use gift cards in person at the park. Seems like a major flaw so this review is for everyone to beware of buying gift cards from this company.

I regret giving a negative review to a local company, but this was a really bad experience. I took my seven year old grandson to Cedar Point. I don't get to see him that often. I was really excited to take him. My wife purchased the VIP parking and ride tickets, several hundred dollars in all. When we arrived there was no one to speak with, just mechanized toll booths. So where was the VIP parking? When we entered the park, there was an issue. They wanted to see the credit card that had been used to make the reservation. We were taken out of line to a special office. My wife had made the reservation with her credit card. I had several credit cards and cash with me, but not my wifes credit card. Forty five minutes later we were let in the park. The issue was never explained to me. And of course no apology. The first ride we tried to get on, there was no VIP access, nor was there on any other ride we tried to get on. A seven year old cannot wait an hour in line for a ride. After a couple hours of this we just left, my day with my grandson ruined! I feel like Cedar Point literally stole my money. I would never go back. My advice to anyone. Go to your county fair. Great rides, great fair food, and short lines. You will have more fun and save yourself a couple hundred dollars. Very disappointed. Dr. Bill C.

The crew of Maverick on Thursday but especially Friday night was able to get my phone back that I dropped (and paid the idiot tax by having a busted screen). Lex and her crew were awesome to help and find it balanced on the support.
