The Only Real Amusement Park

Our "vacation" at home started off with a bang--a Kannel family trip to America's RollerCoast. Chris and Michelle even joined us all the way from New York.

Can I just say, you haven't been to an amusement park until you've been to Cedar Point. And you haven't ridden a roller coaster until you've ridden Millennium Force or Raptor (front seat).

This is not an amusement park. It is a glorified county fair.
This is not Cedar Point. It is a wannabe.

If you really love roller coasters, you need to make your way to the great state of Ohio, to Sandusky--the roller coaster capital of the world. But don't go on a sunny Saturday; you'll wait in 2+ hour lines for the best rides. And if you go in October, dress warmly. Flying down a steel track at 92 mph next to the lake at 8 pm has a chill factor of approximately -17 F.

Ahhhhh...I love Cedar Point.

That is all.
