There’s so Much to Do at This Ohio Theme Park
Ride the Rides
It’s no mystery that Cedar Point rides are included in our list of best things to do in Ohio in the summer. Families will leave with lifelong memories thanks to the many kid-friendly options. Your tiny tot will have a blast on Snoopy’s Space Race ride, or they can join you on the Sky Ride for a bird’s-eye view of the entire park.
Adrenaline junkies can get their fix on one of the 18 Cedar Point roller coasters! The newest addition to the list, Steel Vengeance, has a Wild West theme and breaks the world record for the tallest, fastest, and longest hybrid roller coaster. Perhaps you’d like to get catapulted into the sky on the SlingShot. Or, maybe you’d rather be dropped from the great heights of the Power Tower. Whatever you decide, you’re sure to get a rush!
Experience the Age of the Dinosaurs

You’ll find the infamous Tyrannosaurus alongside Triceratops and Stegosaurus. This immersive adventure is great for kids and adults alike.

Splash Your Troubles Away
On the other side of the park, you’ll encounter exhilarating waterslides and lulling wave pools. Splish, splash, and cool off at Cedar Point’s water park.
