    Giant Wheel

    by Toughluck Updated Oct 17, 2007

    High above the park, you look down on all the other rides. The Wicked Twister is right next to you and you're as high as it goes. Across the bay you'll see Sandusky (or it's lights at night). The other way was the black void Lake Erie. It was night and not a ship, not an island was visible in that direction. You're above the busy park, a moment for some quiet or snuggles with your hunny.

    Fright Faire

    by Toughluck Updated Oct 17, 2007

    Only during Holloween season (October) and only after 8:00 pm. It's dark, there is fog everywhere. You'll see fair booths from the middle ages of Europe and they a hunch back will walk up behind you. Or a 7' (2.1m) gargoyale wil l appear from the dark. Screams and laughter. They're all real. No mechanical monsters.

    NOTE: Little kids might not enjoy this. It's very intense.

    Space Spiral

    by Toughluck Written Oct 15, 2007

    This is one of my favorite rides. It's closed in October, but open the rest of the year. It's just a large cabin, two floors. You walk in hold onto the railing and up you go. Soon, you slowly turning around the pole and the entire park, Lake Eire and the State of Ohio are visible outside the windows. The thrill is in the view.

    Blue Streak

    by Toughluck Written Oct 15, 2007

    The original roller coaster at Cedar Point. It wasn't running in October and it may be shut down completely. It's wooden and very traditional. You climb the steep hill then are let loose for gravity to pull you down. The tracks keep pushing you up over hill and dale, taking curves at high speeds. The original adrenaline rush.

    Funway cemetery

    by Toughluck Written Oct 15, 2007

    During the Holloween season, the grassy plots in the middle of the funway are dotted with tombstones. One section are Rock n Roll stars who are not gone, i.e., Ricky Nelson, Jimmy Hendrix. Another section are the burials for the old Cedar Point Rides. I found the 'Wild Mouse'. I hated that ride. When I was about 12, I road it and got bit! That's right, It had so many sudden turns, that my brother was thrown into me on one or two corners, and when I got off, my left hand was bleeding. Not much, it didn't last long, but I'd never ride it again.
