We live about 3 hours from CP and have been going every year, for more than 35 years. If you like coasters, this is the place. With some research and a little luck, you can find a day that the crowds are thin. We've had several visits when the lines for the major rides were less than 45 minutes, and some of the older, but still exciting rides, were less than 10 minutes. Top Thrill Dragster is well worth the wait, regardless of the time it takes to get on.
When I was a kid the Blue Streak at Cedar Point was the big deal. Now there are so many great ones and Millenium Force is one of them. They keep adding great coasters at Cedar Point every few years.
