The Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, has won the Golden Ticket Awards competition for best amusement park for the tenth year in a row. The husband, a rollercoaster fan who visited there for the first time over Labor Day weekend, is in complete agreement.
"It’s hard-core rollercoasters without all the kiddie stuff," he said. "The theming’s OK, the grounds are beautiful but it’s all about the rollercoasters. It’s cutting edge for rollercoasters."
Hubby went up 310 feet and 92 mph on the Millennium Force – and that wasn’t even the toughest coaster in the place. The line for the Maverick, a new coaster that won the prize for best new ride, was just too long for the husband that day.
Here’s his photo of the double wooden coaster at Cedar Point, the Gemini:
Me, I’m more of a fan of that kiddie stuff. I was once thrown off a kiddie ride at La Ronde in Montreal because adults were supposed to be accompanied by children and I had neglected to bring one.
Also, a little news for New England pride: best steel rollercoaster went to Superman: Ride of Steel at Six Flags New England in Agawam, Mass. Of course, that’s also a fave of the husband’s. He took a photo of that one, too, but I can’t find it.
