Cedar Point is a Theme Park in Sandusky, Ohio. You might know that, but there is something you don't know! Cedar Point cares for everyone, even kids and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)! They have the "Autism Boarding Pass" that has 2 versions. 1. Every _ minutes, the one I use, is so cool! Ride a ride every few minutes, or even hours. You go up the exit to have an employee check the card, you may have to wait, (If the lines and crowd are SUPER HUGE!) 2. Ride at _:__, the one I used to use. Go up the exit, and then they will give you a time to ride, then show up at the time, and you get to ride! Here is how they work, the first one works like, say if the average line for a big coaster is 2 hours, they shorten it down to every 45 mins, but if the average wait line for a big coaster is about 3 hours, then the wait would be 55 mins. The second one works like the first one, but when you show up, they take the wait time of the line and then put the time it would take to be able to wait in line for the ride on the paper, you come up to the exit at that time, and you get to ride! But, to get one, you have to go through a short quiz, if you actually have autism or any other disorders, you get those sheets. If you pass for autism, you get to choose which one you get, if I were you, I'd choose number 1 on my list. if you have autism, you'd have no problem waiting in line, because sometimes, you don't have to! But only use it when there is a LONG wait, if there is at least a 15 min wait, you should use it. overall, Cedar point is very fun, there are so many rides! I give CP 5 stars for its excellent service and caring for others!

Very disappointed I n the smoking going on in the park with children around. Please have it a non smoking park. If people want to smoke have a place outside the gates. Eating at Panda Buffet with a smoking area right next to it with smoke overhead while we were eating with the kids. Very disappointed in the park and have been there often. E-cigaretts are just as bad.NO SMOKING INSIDE PARK too many children. I saw a woman smoking in front of us on the train blowing while the train was going.

The fast past helps to get the best experience. You will need comfortable shoes and lots of water and sun tan lotion. You will also need to be prepared for an excellent rush of adrenaline since the rides are so much fun. They have decent food prices and nice layout. Great Fun with just a couple broke down rides like the Dragster. It has been broke down the last two times I visited. They say it is one of the funnest rides when you can actually ride it. Overall I give them a 5 star experience.

Have been going for 10+ years, platinum pass holder. We always stay at the onsite resorts. In addition to being the coaster capital of the world, they have a lot of other attractions to draw the crowds, shows, the beach, fishing, etc. This place is just awesome

I really enjoyed my time in the park. I wish I could spend more time to try everything. The bad thing is only the waiting time. Expect to wait 2 hours for one ride!
