Week 37 ~ Cedar Point!

If you do, you must visit Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH. It is amazing!  I love Halloween even more so it was great to go during Hallowsweekend with 6 Haunted Houses and tons of awesome decorations. 
The park first open in 1870 as a "public bathing beach" right on Lake Erie and built their first roller coaster in 1892, 25 mph and 10 foot tall. Quite a different story at the park today!! We had a blast, I almost lost my voice from screaming so loud & I almost lost my stomach because I was so anxious of the unexpected. What a blast we had with our wonderful family!

The Flatts!

This mind blowing coaster (Top Thrill Dragster) stands 420 feet tall and top speed is 120 mph!!
The ride only takes 17 seconds. 

I chose this photo to link up with Rebecca over @ Simple Things for 

What an amazing ride Millennium Force was! 310 feet in the air, 80' angle drop and reaches top speeds at 93 mph! 

Mantis is the only coaster you can ride standing up, talk about intensity!! 145', 60 mph and tons of loops, drops and turns.

On the sky ride you can see the whole park ~ I admit I was freaking out a tiny bit when the wind was blowing us!

Shaun looking up as the 420' beast calls his name..
Meet Avery James, isn't she beautiful??
"We can't stay here, this is bat country!"

We didn't remember the Tilt O Wheel being so fast!! It's not just a kids ride anymore!
Everyone needs a 5' Rasta Banana! 


Tired and ready for bed!
