Cedar Point is an amusement park located in Sandusky, Ohio, USA. It initially opened intermittently 1870, and has been in continuous seasonal operation since 1882 (although 1897 was generally attributed to be the first operating-season of the resort within its present boundaries), and is considered to be the second oldest amusement park in North America after Lake Compounce. Cedar Point is the flagship park for Cedar Fair and, along with Valleyfair, was one of the original parks owned and operated by the company. This is one of two Cedar Fair parks in Ohio, with the other one being Kings Island.


Cedar Point received the Golden Ticket Award by Amusement Today for "Best Amusement Park in the World", winning for the fourth consecutive year in a row, however this record was beaten in 2014 by Europa-Park in Germany. The park has also placed in categories for "Friendliest Staff", "Best Outdoor Night Production" and "Best Halloween Event". Cedar Point won "Best New Ride of 2007" with the new roller coaster Maverick.[1]
