Escape the Frigid Temperatures at Cedar Point’s Castaway Bay Where It’s Always 82 Degrees & Sunny! Plus a Giveaway!{Sandusky, Ohio}

I’m just putting this out there.  I hate winter.  Ohio is definitely the wrong state for me.  And this winter has been absolutely brutal so far.  It’s not so much the amount of snow that has fallen, but the frigid temperatures.  One day it was -13° and that wasn’t even including the wind chill.  I am so desperately yearning for sunshine and warmth outside, but right now that is months away.  I was so excited when our family was invited to spend the weekend at Cedar Point’s Castaway Bay where it’s always 82° and sunny giving us a much needed … …..

HalloWeekends Returns for a 17th Season at Cedar Point {Sandusky, Ohio}

I always love visiting Cedar Point, but I love visiting even more during HalloWeekends.  It could be because the cooler temperatures that autumn brings makes trekking around an amusement park much easier than those boiling hot summer days.  It could also be that autumn is my favorite season – the colors and fall decorations make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  Cedar Point takes the concept of fall decorations to a whole new level transforming into a wonderland of 800 pumpkins, 400 gourds, and 67,200 cornstalks.  The GateKeeper itself makes a bold statement to those entering through the Cedar … …..

I Flew GateKeeper {Cedar Point – Sandusky, Ohio}

I am a thrill seeker.  Now you won’t find me sky diving or bungee jumping, but roller coasters – heck yes!  I absolutely love roller coasters and am so lucky to have the roller coaster capital of the world, Cedar Point, just a little over an hour away in Sandusky, Ohio.  Cedar Point is the home of sixteen roller coasters one of which is brand new this year. The last time Dustin and I visited the park during HalloWeekends we spent some time oooh-ing and ahhh-ing over the details of this new coaster on the signs displayed on the fence … …..

HalloWeekends at Cedar Point {Sandusky, Ohio}

About two months ago I shared our visit to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio with all my awesome readers.  Our family had a great time, but I will admit this mama was a tad miserable being hugely pregnant in the hot summer heat while waddling around the rollercoaster capital of the world watching everyone else enjoy the thrills.  And so when we were invited back to experience HalloWeekends I was beyond excited because I would finally get to ride the coasters and enjoy all of the Halloween fun.  But then I realized we would have Willow with us since she … …..

Our stay at Hotel Breakers {Cedar Point–Sandusky, Ohio}

Yesterday I told ya all about our trip to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio.  Tonight I’m going to tell you about the hotel that we stayed at.  There are actually quite a few different overnight accommodations in and around the park to choose from including Sandcastle Suites, Breakers Express, Camper Village, Lighthouse Point, Castaway Bay, and Hotel Breakers which is where we spent the night last Sunday.

Last Sunday our family had a blast checking out Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio as well as staying over night in one of their hotels.  If you have never heard of Cedar Point before than you definitely don’t know what you’re missing.  They are most commonly known as the roller coaster capital of the world with 16 coasters where you can go as fast as 120 mph and drop 80 degrees!  But what most people don’t know is that Cedar Point offers so much more than roller coasters.  They have tons of thrill rides, water rides, plus rides for the … …..

The Spa at Castaway Bay

A few days ago I wrote all about our stay at Castaway Bay (Cedar Point’s Indoor Water Park & Resort) and how much fun we had at the water park.  What I didn’t tell you was that this pregger mama got to be pampered at the “Spa at Castaway Bay” and oh my gosh it was absolutely wonderful.  After a rough night since Sugar doesn’t like sleeping anywhere but her own crib at home I woke up… or was I already awake?  Well anyhow, I realized that I was going to enjoy a relaxing few hours at the spa without … …..

Castaway Bay Indoor Water Park Resort

A couple weekends ago our family had the pleasure of attending a Castaway Bay Family Blogger Event.  Don’t know what Castaway Bay is?  No worries – it is a super fun indoor water park and hotel right down the street from Cedar Point where the forecast is always 82 degrees!  We received an over night stay, tickets to the water park, and got to attend a fun family event.  I must say I was super impressed with absolutely everything.  Every employee I came in contact with at Castaway Bay was super friendly and smiling.  They definitely made us feel welcome … …..
