Hello everyone I would like to announce an impromptu trip to Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, OH, Saturday October 24th. I'm posting here to see if anyone else is interested in going. We'll travel 440 miles to the World's Best Amusement Park (voted 12 years in a row) to enjoy a full day of riding roller coasters and other rides. The park is open until midnight for the Halloweekend festivities which is loads of FUN! Please be sure to dress in layers and bring a hat. It gets cold after the sun goes down and the windchill is something to be dressed for!

People traveling from Bowling Green can meet up at the Fairview Plaza Shopping Center Parking lot Friday, October 23rd at 1:00 p.m. to carpool/ caravan to the Comfort Inn, Sandusky, OH.

Fairview Plaza Shopping Center
1005 Fairview Ave.
Bowling Green, KY 42103

STANDARD TWO DOUBLE BED NON-SMOKING ROOMS ARE ON SALE for $55.92 including tax (Friday night only). Other rooms are also available for 69.99 plus tax. Saturday night rates are considerably higher ($134.75) so I'll be looking into other hotels for that night or may be driving home. Make your reservations by calling (419)[masked] and asking for the fall special rate. Persons canceling a reservation prior to 10/21/[masked]:00 a.m. central time will receive a refund for the total rate minus a $25.00 cancellation fee. Persons canceling a reservation after this time will receive no refund.

By leaving early on Friday, we'll have time to enjoy all the hotel amenities, which include; 2 heated pools, indoor/outdoor pools, jacuzzi, restaurant and nightclub. There is also a free continental breakfast in the morning. This property has a 2 star rating and appeals to the budget minded traveler seeking affordable comfort. However, there may be other area motels/hotels to better serve your needs.

Cedar Park Entrance Fees

Groups of 15 or more: $32.00 Adult (48" or taller in shoes), $16.99 Junior (under 48" tall)

Individual prices: $44.95 Adult (48" or taller in shoes), $19.99 Junior (under 48" tall) Tickets can be purchased online in a block of 4 for $148. We will work this out if we don't have a group of 15.

Parking is $10.00.

Ways to Save Money

** Pack a lunch and bring a cooler. You can go in and out of the park as long as your hand is stamped. It may also be a healthier alternative to some of the foods offered inside the park.

** Buy a wrist band for unlimited soft drinks (Pepsi products) for $6.00 plus tax.

Trip will not run in bad weather (meaning a forecast of all day rain, if it's just overcast with a few spots of rain, the trip will still run). Always bring a rain jacket.

I will email everyone after the 17th with final details of the trip. Please contact me if you have any questions.
