Yesterday, Jeffrey and I headed up to Cedar Point for the day.
Cedar Point is one of Jeffrey’s favorite places to go in the summer. And since he’s over 48 inches tall, he can go on the “big” rollercoasters.
We started out with the Cedar Creek Mine Ride, which Jeffrey declared to be “crazy” and I thought was a nice way to ease in to the day.
We also hit the Gemini (a classic favorite of mine) and Iron Dragon.
I also loved seeing that Jeffrey still wanted to go on some of the rides in Camp Snoopy too! There are days when it seems like he’s growing up so fast, but he still loves the kid rides too!
I was apprehensive about going this year, since I wasn’t sure how both the park and Jeffrey would react to the “new normal” in which we’re existing.
We arrived right when the park opened and found it to be not crowded at all. After a temperature screening, we entered the park where we saw everyone complying with the mask mandate.
We were able to basically walk right on to all the rides, except for when there were breaks for cleaning and sanitizing. Hand sanitizer stations and social distance markers were plentiful.
And while we didn’t stop at any of the “Relax Areas,” these are socially-distanced spots where you could sit, take off your mask, and take a break if you needed.
It was a different Cedar Point experience to be sure, but it was still fun and didn’t feel crowded or unsafe. We’re season pass holders and, while I’m not sure if our schedules will allow us to get up there again this season, we certainly would consider it. It was an authentic Cleveland summer experience, with a bit of adjusting for life as we know it now.
Cedar Point has eliminated advance reservations for the park, but is still implementing daily attendance limits. As of Monday, August 17, the park will only be open on weekends through Labor Day.
