The Roller Coaster Capital of the World
I had the opportunity to visit “The Roller Coaster Capital of the World”, also known as Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, OH. With a total of 17 roller coasters, it was a good thing we allowed 2 days to enjoy the park so I could ride them all at least once!
The roller coasters at Cedar Point are the most amazing roller coasters I have ever been on! My favorite was a ride called Top Thrill Dragster. Although it is a short ride, it is an extremely fast short ride. The ride starts out at a light that turns from red to green as the name says, like a dragster. When the light turns green, you go from 0 to 120 MPH in less than 4 seconds, straight up 420 feet into the air and straight back down back to the finish line. The ride only lasts 17 seconds, but for me it was the best 17 seconds at Cedar Point.
I also really like The GateKeeper. The GateKeeper is the tallest, fastest, and longest wing roller coaster in the world. With speeds up to 67 mph, it’s no snoozer! With your feet dangling in the air, it feels like you are flying as you twist and turn your way through the track. Definitely not one to miss!
