About a month ago I shared my experience flying GateKeeper at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio the day before the park opened to the public for the 2013 season.  It was such an amazing roller coaster and I was so ready to get back to Cedar Point so I could ride it again.  I was thrilled to have that opportunity during the Cedar Point Mommy Blogger event.  I invited a close friend of mine, her fiancé, and their baby girl who is about a month younger than Willow to join us for the event.  Now you might be thinking how could you have any fun at Cedar Point with a nine and eight month old in tow?

Cedar Point

Three words.  Parent Ride Swap.  There are a few places you can obtain the form that will authorize you to take place in the Parent Ride Swap Program including Guest Services, Park Operations Office, Town Hall Museum, and the Resort Entrance Gate.  And here’s how it works…one parent waits in line to a coaster or other height-restricted ride. After riding, they give their Parent Ride Swap pass to a ride operator, and the other parent/guardian, who’s been taking care of the little ones, can walk up the exit to get right on the ride with one riding partner.  This is what the pass looks like…

And so while Dustin and I would wait in line to ride a coaster Allie and Joe would watch the girls then we would switch for the next ride.  The Parent Ride Swap Program is an awesome system and it allowed us to ride a lot of coasters without having to wait in those long lines twice.  Plus there were rides that the girls were able to ride even though their still itty bitty.  And so in between roller coasters we would take the girls on rides too.  They really enjoyed the Cedar Point and Lake Erie Railroad as well as the Carousel.

We also took the girls on the Sky Ride which glides 92 feet in the air over the Main Midway. We travelled in our own personal gondola for more than a half-mile and enjoyed gorgeous views of the lake and rides.

Here’s another tip.  When the first set of riders gets in line for a roller coaster check the approximate wait time at the entrance then use that time to your advantage.  For example while the guys were waiting in line to ride the Maverick Allie and I took the girls on the railroad to kill some time.

And now you know that just because you have a little one doesn’t mean you have to skip out on the Cedar Point fun.  Bring them with you and have a blast just like we did.

    We have done nothing yet this summer! This would be a chance to get out and do something fun!

  3. I have never been. I am not a ride person. So really I think I’d just like taking the kids on the merry go round and watching them have fun.

  4. I have never been to Cedar Point

    Hi, I have lived in Ohio my whole 29 years and have never been to Cedar Point or Lake Erie. I have two boys that are finally big enough to go to a amusement park. This would be a great idea for a family vacation!

    Skype has opened up its online-structured client beta
    on the entire world, soon after introducing it broadly from the
    United states and You.K. earlier this four weeks. Skype for
    Web also now facilitates Chromebook and Linux for
    immediate text messaging connection (no video and voice yet, individuals need
    a plug-in installment).

    The increase of your beta contributes assistance for an extended list of dialects to help
    you reinforce that overseas user friendliness
